Solution Features


First, the CloudBackbone solution provides the industry's largest-capacity backbone routers, NE9000. These routers utilize the industry's first 4T line cards with a capacity of up to 80T, twice the industry average. The routers also provide 400GE ports, increasing the link bandwidth four-fold and ensuring high data transmission efficiency, and feature low power consumption at less than 0.4 W/G, half the industry average.


Second, the CloudBackbone solution simplifies networks in terms of network layer, network protocol, and cross-layer synergy, optimizes the backbone network architecture, and reduces the TCO.


Finally, the CloudBackbone solution provides capabilities of traffic prediction, min-level automatic service provisioning, real-time multi-layer network status visualization and fast adjustment to handle the rapid change of cloud services. It can also identify abnormal route paths and provides protection.

Technical Topics
