A holistic, end-to-end network approach drives an eco-sustainable communications transformation. End-user demand for high-bandwidth services with enhanced quality of experience is exploding worldwide. In addition, global market dynamics dictate that service providers have the agility to support multiple business models to deliver innovative revenue-generating services. Energy efficiency, a smaller carbon footprint and eco-sustainability have also become key focus areas. To meet all these challenges, wireline and wireless service providers will need to evolve their networks to a next-generation, all-IP multiservice infrastructure that is fully converged, optimized and scalable.
Networks today must leverage the latest innovations in broadband Internet technologies and optics. The network must provide eco-sustainability in traffic transport and deliver services more intelligently, reliably, securely, efficiently and at the lowest cost. The Alcatel-Lucent High Leverage Network™ (HLN) architecture provides a holistic, intelligent, integrated approach to meet these demands. It can reduce total cost of ownership by employing fewer devices to do more with less, offering an eco-sustainable choice for service providers.
Fewer devices mean less power and less cooling, which reduces the service provider’s carbon footprint. For example, the HLN can handle large amounts of traffic more efficiently at the lowest possible network layer. That’s because both bandwidth and intelligence are designed-in to send traffic only where it needs to go, at the highest speed and in the most efficient way. This integrated, intelligent approach to IP and optics enables the network to send traffic at the optical layer, consuming less power and cooling than at the routing layer.
