Re: Nice marketing start....
Only small difference:
NCS6000 is not commercially available yet. And it is just claimed to have 1Tbps per slot capacity.
It will be available from H1'2014. And then we will see what Cisco actually can ship to customers. :)

Re: Nice marketing start....
Good catch, I forgot the ALU XRS breaks things into two slots instead of a single large slot with four sub-slots.  Either way the Huawei is 16x400G (really 480G) and the XRS is 20x400G.   Guess ALU needs to change their material as well now since the NCS6000 is 10x1Tbps...

Re: Nice marketing start....
copied from ALU website

7950 XRS-20
The Alcatel-Lucent 7950 XRS-20 provides 16 Tb/s of routing capacity in a single 19" rack, making it the highest capacity single-chassis core routing platform available.
With 20 slots each initially capable of
400 Gb/s of aggregate interface capacity, the system supports 10GE, 40GE, 100GE, and future 400GE interfaces without stranding system bandwidth.
The 7950 XRS-20 can support up to eighty 100GE ports in a single rack, requiring 80% less space than existing core router alternatives.
7950 XRS-20 systems can be upgraded to the 7950 XRS-40 to double the routing and interface capacity, and to multi-chassis 7950 XRS configurations in future for further system scaling.

Re: Nice marketing start....
The ALU XRS is 800Gbps half-duplex, or in former Cisco marketing terms 1.6Tbps/slot like you said.  It has the ability to support 8x100GE line-rate ports per slot.   The Cisco NCS is 10x100GE.   So Huawei is actually behind every other major router vendor.

Re: Nice marketing start....
Huawei 400G means  it support 4  100G ports or 40  10G ports . for some company's math , it's 800G.

Re: Nice marketing start....
The router just has 400G/slot, it doesn't support 400G interfaces. The highest speed interface it supports is 100G. It is just poor marketing from Huawei. The PTX from Juniper is 480G/slot and has been out for two years now as has the XRS from ALU which is now 800G/slot.

Re: Nice marketing start....
Also puts some good pressure on other vendors to try to close their own 400G Tier 1 deals, or at least move things out of trial and lab phases.

For Huawei this is a neat reference - people will really take notice when a Tier 1 is involved.
