The NetEngine 40E series universal service routers are high-end network products launched by Huawei. They mainly serve as edge nodes on IP backbone networks, IP metro networks, and large-scale IP networks.
Leveraging distributed hardware-based forwarding and non-blocking switching technologies, the NetEngine 40E series features line-rate forwarding capabilities, excellent scalability, and strong service processing capabilities. To implement reliable service transport, the series supports various services and flexible deployment of L2VPN, L3VPN, multicast, multicast VPN, MPLS TE, EVPN, Segment Routing-MPLS (SR-MPLS), Segment Routing IPv6 (SRv6), Flexible Ethernet (FlexE), and QoS. It also supports various value-added services, such as GRE tunneling, IPsec tunneling, and NetStream. In addition, the NetEngine 40E series fully supports IPv6 and smooth transition from IPv4 to IPv6, driving transport networks' evolution towards broadband, diversification, and intelligence. As a carrier-grade platform that integrates user management and service control, this series supports user-specific service management to meet differentiated requirements.
The NetEninge 40E series includes devices that are applicable to networks of different scales: NetEninge 40E-X16A, NetEninge 40E-X8A.
