NetEngine40E Series Universal Service Routers

Flexible, high-performance core routers for building Internet Data Centers (IDCs) and tiered enterprise networks, and for edge routers between campuses.

Multi-Service Edge Router (MSER) functions enable video, voice, and data traffic with unified subscriber services management and Hierarchical Quality of Service (HQoS). Consolidates IP aggregation and MPLS functionality in a single, high-availability router.

NetEngine40E Series Universal Service Routers are an excellent choice for mission-critical applications in government, transportation, TV broadcasting, finance, and power utilities implementing Smart Grid technologies.

Large-capacity core and edge routers for converged networks supporting video, voice, and data services, with comprehensive user management and accounting features

  • High-capacity routing boards with up to 480 Gbit/s, 1 Tbit/s and 2 Tbit/s line speeds; virtualization and SDN support
  • Designed for reliability and comprehensive support for service management including L2 and L3 VPNs, multicast VPN, MPLS TE, QoS, GRE, IPsec, NetStream, and full virtualization
  • IP hard-pipe technology supports leased lines similar to SONET and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) networks
  • Huawei’s proprietary IP Flow Performance Measurement (FPM) monitors services in real time for rapid fault detection
  • Non-Stop Routing (NSR), Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF), and In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) improve service recovery and ensure uninterrupted service forwarding
