7450 Ethernet Service Switch

Deploy a high-performance platform for your Carrier Ethernet services

The Nokia 7450 Ethernet Service Switch (ESS) family of Carrier Ethernet switch routers is designed to deliver advanced Carrier Ethernet services. It also provides the ideal platform for the metro Ethernet aggregation of fixed and mobile networks.

Equipped with Nokia FP3 silicon technology, the 7450 ESS combines the scalability, resiliency, and predictability of MPLS with the bandwidth economics of Ethernet. This combination allows you to deliver enhanced business services and aggregate mobile, business and residential services within the metro network.

Available in two chassis variants, the 7450 ESS supports comprehensive Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS capabilities for advanced Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and Virtual Leased Line (VLL) services. It uses Nokia 7750 Service Router (SR) technology to support advanced IP services.

The 7450 ESS complies with MEF CE 2.0 to support the delivery of CE 2.0-certified services across all four MEF service types: E-LAN, E-Line, E-Tree and E-Access.

Part of our Service Router product portfolio, the 7450 ESS utilizes our Service Router Operating System (SR OS). It is managed by our Network Services Platform (NSP) for seamless integration into our IP/MPLS solutions.
