Product Features

· Ultra-Broadband 2T Board

Industry-leading boards can evolve to 4T and will provide 400G ports in the near future. High-density, compact ports save space and Huawei’s proprietary Solar chipsets and energy-saving technology deliver large capacity and high performance with low power consumption.

· SDN Commercialization

With an SDN architecture, industry-leading Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and native IP network optimization technologies, NetEngine40E eliminates problems such as uneven traffic distribution, low bandwidth utilization, and low network convergence caused by repeated topology computations in the case of faults.

· Innovative IP Hard Pipe

A major Huawei innovation (RFC 7625), IP hard pipe technology uses existing technologies, such as Multiprotocol Label Switching Traffic Engineering (MPLS TE) and Hierarchical Quality Of Service (HQoS), to guarantee the exclusive Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH)-like hard pipe use of leased line services through hardware resource reservation, ensuring low latency and high reliability.

Q: How Is the Slot Layout on NE40E-X8?



Q: What prerequisites must be met and what licenses are required in order to use PPPoE/IPoE function on NE40E?

A: Below two factors to be met at the same time

1, NE40E

NE40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License is needed

2, Card and service port

Service card (no matter Flexible mother card, daughter card or integrated card) needs support PPPoE/IPoE Function.

Card model with “E” itself supports PPPoE/IPoE, no extra license; card without “E”, relative license is needed to activate PPPoE/IPoE.

In a word, NE40E license is the base, and then make sure service cards and port support PPPoE/IPoE.

PPPoE/IPoE card license for flexible mother card and integrated card:

NetEngine40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License for LPUF-120

NetEngine40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License for LPUI-120

NetEngine40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License for LPUF-240

NetEngine40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License for LPUI-240

NetEngine40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License for LPUF-480

NetEngine40E PPPoE/IPoE Function License for LPUI-480

PPPoE/IPoE License for service ports on integrated card or daughter card:

NetEngine40E 100G PPPoE/IPoE Port License(per 100G)

NetEngine40E 10G PPPoE/IPoE Port License(per 10G)

NetEngine40E 1G PPPoE/IPoE Port License(per 1G)
