Huawei Signs 100th Contract for NE5000E 400G Core Router

Signalling its continued expansion in the core routing market, Huawei announced its 100th contract for its NE5000E 400G core router deployment on an IP backbone network. The platform was commercially launched in August 2013. It is now deployed in some 37 countries on five continents. Huawei said the system has operated fault free for over one year on these multiple networks.

In August 2013, Huawei deployed the industry's first 400G IP backbone network for Mobily in Saudi Arabia. Over the past year, a growing number of leading operators, such as MegaFon Russia, Jazztel Spain, True and DTAC in Thailand, Etisalat UAE, as well as China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom, have deployed the 400G router.

Key features of the Huawei NE5000E-based platform include its acceptance of three generations of service boards: 100G, 400G, and 1T. The system capacity can be smoothly upgraded from 3.2 Tbps to 32 Tbps and the super 2+8 router cluster system can achieve a capacity of up to 128 Tbps.  The NE5000E 400G router has passed testing certification from the European Advanced Network Test Center (EANTC).
