    NE5000E Cluster

    Huawei developed NE5000E series large-capacity, high-performance routers provide carrier-class reliability. Based on the powerful Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), NE5000E routers provide strong switching capabilities, dense ports, and high reliability. NE5000E routers can serve as super-core nodes on IP backbone networks, core nodes on metro networks, egresses in large-scale IDCs, and core nodes on large enterprise networks.

    NE5000E clusters are positioned as super-core nodes on backbone networks that provide Layer 3 routing and MPLS forwarding. In an NE5000E cluster, a Cluster Central Chassis (CCC) functions as a level-2 switching module and routing engine module in a three-stage switch fabric, and a Cluster Line-card Chassis (CLC) functions as a level-1 or level-3 switching and forwarding module.
