LONDON -- Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today launched its advanced Quidway NetEngine 5000E ("NE5000E")Core Router Multi-chassis Cluster System at SOFNET 2008, an industry forum organised by the International Engineering Consortium (IEC). The system has been successfully deployed commercially by China Telecom, allowing an increase in the operator’s ADSL bandwidth for its subscribers.

With carrier IP network transformation and the rise of IMS, FMC and the digital home, demand for network bandwidth has increased dramatically. To keep pace, the development of core routers at network backbone nodes is entering a new phase. Carrier-class core routers now require a combination of high reliability, robust scalability and strong processing, forwarding and switching capabilities.

The NE5000E Cluster Core Router, which is based on industry-leading router cluster technologies offers an innovative solution to the IP network transformation of carriers. With the industry’s first 10Tbps switch capacity and forwarding performance architecture, the system meets the requirements of New Generation Networks on bandwidth performance, service quality and service provision capabilities. The system implements the industry’s innovatory ISHE (In-service Hardware Expansion) that can be expanded from 1.28T to 80T without any hardware replacement and can meet the demands of operators’ constantly-growing business requirements with the most flexible scalability. Furthermore, the system adopts ASIC-based core chips, which can reduce power consumption by more than 40%. By virtue of its 10Tbps capacity, an industry’s first, most flexible expansion mode and top green design, Huawei’s NE5000E Cluster Core Router structurally reduces TCO and satisfies the network integration requirements of users in the All-IP era.

"In the All-IP age, a router cluster is the inevitable form of routers at network core nodes. Huawei has years of experience and constant investment in the data communication field, and has always focused on carriers’ requirements. We are excited about the high-end NE5000E Core Router Multi-chassis Cluster System, which will pave the way for operators to evolve into an ALL-IP era while enhancing energy efficiency," said Samuel Chen, vice president of Huawei Network Product Line.
