Ericsson has announced the launch of its Smart Cloud Accelerator solution, which complements Ericsson's portfolio of content delivery options consisting of the Mobile Cloud Accelerator (MCA).
The latest addition to the SSR 8000 family of Ericsson is the SSR 8010 Smart Services Router (SSR). The SSR 8000 is a key component of Ericsson’s portfolio of 4th-generation IP networking solutions launched in 2011. The portfolio is ideal for mobile and fixed IP backhaul that can aggregate 2G, 3G, 4G and fixed access traffic.
The 10-slot SSR 8010 complements the 20-slot SSR 8020, enabling operators to deploy the SSR family in different regions of the network: IP Edge and aggregation. The SSR 8010 consumes just 3.3 watts per gigabit of traffic throughput, and is ideal for applications where 10 available slots will be optimal to meet current capacity and upcoming growth. Capacity planning will drive the decision and a customer can deploy both 8010 and 8020 nodes in the same network. The SSR 8010's smaller footprint provides additional flexibility for operators to deploy networks with distributed architectures.
The SSR 8010 will be commercially available in third quarter of 2012.
