High Performance Multiservice Metro Router

The Ribbon NPT 2700 is a high-performance, multi-service router optimized for high-capacity metro aggregation. Whether its IP/MPLS, SR-TE, FlexE and IPoDWDM, the NPT 2700 uses the right IP transport technology for each service it supports. It offers a unique “pay-as-you-grow” architecture, allowing switching capacity to be easily and dynamically added when needed. Scalable capacity and a fully redundant design make the NPT 2700 ideal for all networks requiring a high-availability networking solution.

NPT 2700 Datasheet

NPT 2700 Overview

The NPT 2700 provides a unique “pay-as-you-grow”  architecture, with up to 8T switching capacity which can be built-up dynamically in steps of 2T, without the need to install the full switching capacity of 8T upfront,  as is the case in traditional high capacity platforms based on Clos architecture. A choice of I/O slots, and optical transceivers (including  100G , 200G and 400G coherent interfaces with ZR/ZR+ applications) make the NPT 2700 ideal for high-capacity metro aggregation and transport.

With a rich set of IP routing features and capabilities combined with carrier-grade service assurance, visibility, and control the NPT 2700 is truly multiservice, optimizing the end-to-end delivery of each service whilst meeting the service performance requirements for each service, on a service by service basis. A full set of optical interfaces including 400G ZR/ZR+ coherent optical pluggables, allows the NPT 2700 to support both single layer, hop-by-hop IPoDWDM and multilayer IP and Optical transport.
