Huawei Router Passes 400G Test

BERLIN -- Huawei, a leading global Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions provider, announced that its core router – NE5000E, had passed the test conducted by European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC), making NE5000E the first router to pass the full-loading 400G 6.4T test and the undisputed leader of the industry in the 400G router era.

The tested flagship NE5000E was fully loaded with 400G line cards and contained a total of 32 100GE, 10 40GE, and 280 10GE ports. Spirent, the leading network performance test equipment vendor, provided its latest high-density test platform – SPT- N11U. To ensure test results' authenticity, EANTC designed strict testing methods to emulate realistic carrier network scenarios based on EANTC’s extensive service provider testing experience including performance, features, power consumption, and reliability areas.

NE5000E proved extraordinary during the whole test, exceeding the industry standards in all aspects. In product performance, it is the industry's first router to achieve the unprecedented goal of zero packet loss in the forwarding of 125 trillion packets. The product's power consumption is as low as 8106 W which is half the industry average. In reliability, zero packet loss was guaranteed to ensure non-stop routing (NSR).The testing results also showed that NE5000E can realize BGP convergence time 130,000 routes/s, which is three times faster than the industry average.

Newer Test Platforms need broadened exposure to the NEM community! It appears that Huaweis network elements have been thoroghly tested by the neutral organisation like EANTC successfully.The testing vendor need to invite other NEM suppliers for both agreement on the test format (beyond Power consumption & switching time) and form a standard under International body.An open forum where all these prime NEM vendors can be compared will help the major Marquee operators to establish partnersips rationally.400G test will establish new standard for Quality.Vishnu Goel T&M +919810101238
