Huawei's NetEngine 8000 M series comprises the M14 and the M8, two compact full-scenario aggregation routers designed for the 5G and cloud era. These routers feature a large capacity, compact design, high reliability, and wide range of ports. The M series provides SRv6 capabilities, simplifying network protocols and providing application-level SLA assurance. The M series routers can smoothly evolve to larger capacities. With Huawei's NetEngine 8000 M series routers, customers can implement multi-service bearing and build simplified, converged, and intelligent ultra-broadband metro networks.
The NetEngine 8000 M series provides a maximum capacity of 2 Tbps. The M series meets the requirements for large-capacity and converged service bearing on IP networks in the 5G and cloud era. In addition, the M series routers adopt a redundancy design for key components, such as controlling units, forwarding units, power modules, and fans. This ensures that the M series provides stable services to customers.
The NetEngine 8000 M series routers leverage a new hardware platform. At only 220 mm deep, the M series can be easily installed in a 300 mm-deep cabinet. The NetEngine 8000 M14 is only 5 U high, and the NetEngine 8000 M8 is only 3 U high, reducing the footprint in equipment rooms by more than 20% compared with the industry average.
The NetEngine 8000 M series routers provide diversified ports, including 100GE, 50GE, 40GE, 25GE, and 10GE ports, and low-speed ports such as E1, CPOS, POS, FE, and GE ports, to meet the requirements of various access scenarios.
The NetEngine 8000 M series is an all-scenario platform that can function as an SR, PE, DC gateway, or broadband network gateway (BNG), 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 M series achieves real-time visualization of network service quality and facilitates fast fault demarcation and locating.
