NetEngine 8000 Series

Huawei NetEngine 8000 series routers provide an all-service, intelligent router platform designed for the cloud era.

Utilizing ultra-broadband pipes to construct simplified networks, and running the leading SR and SRv6 protocols to establish intelligent connections, the NetEngine 8000 series interworks with Huawei’s next generation Network Cloud Engine (NCE) to implement full-lifecycle automation and lead the trend towards proactive Operations and Maintenance (O&M).

Available in a range of form factors — including large chassis, compact card-equipped box, and fixed box — and applicable to core, aggregation, and access networks, NetEngine 8000 boasts high performance, high reliability, low power consumption, and full evolution capabilities. Its applications include functioning as a core node for an enterprise WAN, as an access node on a large enterprise network, as a DCI node, or as a campus or IDC network egress.

Award-winning and critically-acclaimed, the NetEngine 8000 Series offers a range of industry-leading, next generation routers that adhere to an "intent-driven" philosophy — effectively freeing customers from unnecessary constraints and unleashing network potential.

Through the evolution of autonomous driving networks, Huawei empowers enterprise customers across industries to implement digital transformation.
