NetEngine5000E Cluster Routers

To keep pace with the exploding demand for bandwidth and services, large enterprises and ISP data centers need the high performance, scalability, and resiliency engineered into Huawei’s huge-capacity NetEngine5000E Series Cluster Routers.

Routing board capacity of 1 Tbit/s and innovative clustering design allow flexible scalability to total switching capacity greater than 800 Tbit/s with carrier-grade 99.999% uptime performance.

Energy-efficient features, including compact chassis design, 32-nm chip technology, and cycling air heat dissipation, reduce energy and cooling requirements to control TCO.

Keep ahead of rapid growth in IP network traffic and increasing bandwidth needs with super-high-capacity, high-availability NE5000E Cluster Routers from Huawei

  • Multi-chassis clustering (16 + 64) with 400 Gbit/s LPUs increases capacity to greater than 800 Tbit/s
  • Separation of forwarding and control planes, with comprehensive reliability methods such as hot swap and backup for key components, NSR, hot patching, and ISSU, optimize throughout and boost uptime availability to 99.999%
  • In-Service Hardware Expansion (ISHE) technologies, including configurable fabric switching of integrated circuits and high-speed Optical Flexible Card (OFC) features, make expanding capacity smooth and easy
  • Compact and lightweight hardware design, combined with energy-efficient technologies and cooling, reduce TCO by as much as 45%
