Huawei Joins Router Newsfest

12:20 PM -- LONDON -- Sofnet -- Not to be left behind by rivals Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) and Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), which have recently unveiled new IP products, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. will on Tuesday unveil a new router. (See AlcaLu Beefs Up Its Routers and Cisco Takes Hold of the Edge.)

Using this week's Sofnet event in London as its springboard, the Chinese vendor will publicly unveil a new, multi-chassis cluster system version of its Quidway NetEngine 5000E core router that, it will announce, has "remarkable forwarding capacity, high scalability, and service flexibility."

While the company may not have made a big publicity push around this product before, details of the product are already available on the Huawei Website at this page.

It says the cluster system version of the NE5000E can scale up to 160 Tbit/s of switching capacity with a 64 chassis cluster that can "integrate multiple POPs into a single system."

Light Reading will report more details once the product has been officially unveiled, due Tuesday morning.
