On June 14, 2017, Nokia launched the FP4, a new 2.4Tbps network processor unit (NPU) for Nokia's 7750 and 7950 router portfolios. The FP4-enabled 7750 and 7950 have been designed to address the needs of both communications service providers (CSPs) and internet content providers (ICPs).
- For the CSPs, Nokia is delivering scale, security, and investment protection with a seamless upgrade path for the installed base. For the ICPs, Nokia is delivering cloud-scale economics, a data center chassis, and an invaluable second source to counter Broadcom's growing hegemony.
- Nokia's ability to combine Deepfield analytics, FP4 NPU-based cards, and NSP will give it a leading role in carriers' packet networks and ICPs' core networks.
