NE5000E Cluster

The NE5000E series are large-capacity, high-performance routers developed by Huawei to provide carrier-class reliability. Based on the powerful Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), NE5000Es provide strong switching capabilities, dense ports, and high reliability. NE5000Es can serve as super-core nodes on IP backbone networks, core nodes on metro networks, egresses in large-scale IDCs, and core nodes on large enterprise networks.

NE5000E clusters are positioned as super-core nodes on backbone networks that provide Layer 3 routing and MPLS forwarding. In an NE5000E cluster, a Cluster Central Chassis (CCC) functions as a level-2 switching module and routing engine module in a three-stage switch fabric, and a Cluster Line-card Chassis (CLC) functions as a level-1 or level-3 switching and forwarding module.
