The NetEngine 8000 F series comprises high-performance and large-capacity metro edge routers designed for the cloud era. Featuring large capacity, full scenarios, and low power consumption, the F series applies to scenarios such as metro edge access, aggregation, and centralized BBU deployment. The F series provides SRv6 capabilities, simplifying network protocols and providing application-level SLA assurance.
The NetEngine 8000 F1A supports a maximum capacity of 1.2 Tbps. At only 1 U high and 420 mm deep, the F series can be installed in the same cabinet with servers, greatly reducing the footprint in equipment rooms.
The NetEngine 8000 F series is an all-scenario platform that can function as a PE, DC gateway, or traditional metro aggregation device, simplifying network layers and node complexity.
It supports a wide range of software features, including SRv6, network slicing (FlexE), and In-situ Flow Information Telemetry (iFIT). SRv6 enables automated connections across domains, service provisioning within minutes, and one-hop access to the cloud. It also supports intelligent traffic steering based on policies such as latency and bandwidth for applications and tenants on the cloud, allowing on-demand scheduling of network resources and guaranteeing SLAs for different services. FlexE realizes one network for multiple purposes, thereby saving customer investment. In addition, with iFIT, the F series achieves real-time visualization of network service quality and facilitates fast fault demarcation and locating.
The NetEngine 8000 F series routers use Huawei-developed network processing chips. The power consumption of the entire system is as low as 0.3 W/G, 20% lower than the industry average.
