ME60 series are multiple-service control gateways (BRASs) developed by Huawei for industries such as broadcasting, television, and education. ME60s provide a platform for unified user access and management.
Based on a 2T platform, ME60s provide the industry’s largest-capacity routing line card (480G) and a large-capacity NAT service line card (160G) that enable customers to smoothly evolve from IPv4 to IPv6.

Q: How Is the Slot Layout on ME60-X8?
Q: Does the CF Card on the ME60 Support Hot Swap?
A: All CF cards on the MPU/SRU do not support hot swap. In the ME60-X8 and ME60-X16 chassis, the CF cards support hot swap after the offline buttons of CF cards are pressed. CF card cannot be supported on the X3 models of the ME60.
Q: What Services Does the E1 Interface on the ME60 Support?
The E1 interface supports the following services:
TDM E1 transparent transmission (CESop/SATop)
E1 frames are transparently transmitted on the PSN network. That is, the E1 frames on the inbound interface are encapsulated into PWE3 packets, and then are added with MPLS labels before traversing the PSN network. Then, the remote end decapsulates the PWE3 packets into E1 frames and sends the E1 frames to the line side.
ATM Cell Relay
ATM cells are transparently transmitted on the PSN network. That is, the E1 frames are parsed into ATM cells. The ATM cells are then encapsulated into PWE3 packets and are added with MPLS labels before traversing the PSN network.
Multiple ATM E1 interfaces can be configured as an IMA group interface.
If PWE3 emulation services are not adopted, the E1 channel can be configured with common PPP/HDLC/MP to bear IP services.
The preceding configurations can be configured on different E1 interfaces of a sub-card. That is, one sub-card can support all the preceding services.
Q: What Are the Differences Between the Common Flexible Cards and Flexible Cards-E in ME60?
A: Flexible Cards-E have rear TM chips and support user-side HQoS. Common flexible cards do not support HQoS.
