NE40E Series

NetEngine40E (NE40E) high-end universal service routers are designed to serve as core nodes on enterprise WANs, access nodes on large-scale enterprise networks, interconnection and aggregation nodes on campus networks, and edge nodes on large-scale IDC networks.

They are designed on a 2T platform and use Huawei-proprietary Solar chipsets and Versatile Routing Platform (VRP). The routers provide the industry’s largest-capacity 2T routing line cards and can be used in mature WAN SDN solutions. With high performance, low power consumption, innovative IP hard pipe technology, and capable of quick evolution, NE40E routers meet the low latency and high reliability requirements of business-critical services.

Industry-leading NE40Es have won a number of international awards and are widely used by governments and industries such as electric power, transportation, broadcasting and television, and finance.
