Strong Service Support Capabilities
The NetEngine 8000 supports diverse features and provides powerful service processing capabilities to meet the service requirements of metro networks, vertical networks, DCI networks, and campus or DC gateways. See below for some of these capabilities.
Powerful routing capabilities: The NetEngine 8000 supports super large routing tables and diverse routing protocols including Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS), Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGPv4), and broadcast, unknown-unicast and multicast traffic (BUM) routing. In addition, the NetEngine 8000 supports both simple and ciphertext authentication and fast convergence to ensure network stability and security in complicated routing environments.
Strong service bearing capabilities: IP, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and SRv6 can be deployed on the NetEngine 8000 as required. The NetEngine 8000 supports Layer 2 virtual private network (L2VPN), L3VPN, multicast VPN (MVPN), and Ethernet VPN (EVPN) services, traffic engineering (TE), ﬂexible 802.1Q in 802.1Q (QinQ), and Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE). The NetEngine 8000 supports traditional access, emerging services, and multi-service bearing.
Powerful expandable multicast capabilities: The NetEngine 8000 supports various IPv4/IPv6 multicast protocols, such as Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), PIM - Source Speciﬁc Multicast (PIM-SSM), Multicast Listener Discovery Version 1 (MLDv1), MLDv2, Internet Group Membership Protocol Version 3 (IGMPv3), IGMP snooping, and MLD snooping. The NetEngine 8000 can ﬂexibly carry video services, such as Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), and satisfy multicast service requirements on networks of various scales.
Comprehensive Network Slicing Functions
The NetEngine 8000 provides comprehensive network slicing functions to meet the differentiated SLA require-ments of different services and enterprises. Quality of Service (QoS) ensures service isolation and pipe statistical multiplexing. Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) sub-interfaces implement service protection based on queue isolation. Timeslot-based FlexE slicing provides SLA assurance for super services through physical isolation.
High-quality QoS capabilities, advanced queue scheduling algorithms and congestion control algorithms, as well as a ﬁve-level hierarchical QoS (HQoS) scheduling mechanism, meet the service requirements of diverse users on the access side in a differentiated manner. The NetEngine 8000 supports MPLS HQoS on the network side. QoS can be deployed on the network side to provide QoS for MPLS VPN, virtual leased line (VLL), and pseudo-wire emulation edge to edge (PWE3) services. The NetEngine 8000 performs precise multi-level scheduling of data ﬂows, meeting the quality requirements of different users and services of different classes.
Future-Oriented IPv6 Solution
High-Precision 1588v2 Clock Solution
IEEE 1588v2 refers to the IEEE Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measure ment and Control Systems. The 1588v2 standard deﬁnes a Precision Time Protocol (PTP), which can achieve time and frequency synchronization with an accuracy of sub-microseconds.
The 1588v2 standard enables time and frequency synchronization to meet the requirements of the G.813 template. Moreover, an accuracy of 100 ns meets the requirements of wireless and Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks, and the time jitter between multiple nodes (under 30 nodes) is less than 1 µs, allowing for large-scale networking. The external clock sources can be assigned different priorities. The NetEngine 8000 automatically selects an external clock source as its reference clock source based on parameters such as the priorities of external clock sources and the number of hops between itself and the external clock sources. If the best external clock source fails, the device automatically selects the second-best external clock source as its reference clock source. Service switching can be completed within 200 ns, ensuring high clock reliability. In the meantime, iMaster NCE provides GUI-based clock management
All-Round Reliability Solution
The NetEngine 8000 provides reliability protection at different levels, including the device level, network level, and service level. The NetEngine 8000 can provide a network-wide reliability solution that comprehensively meets the reliability requirements of diverse services. These reliability features lay the foundation for reliable enterprise service interconnection with a system availability of 99.999%.
Device-level reliability: The NetEngine 8000 provides redundancy backup for key components. Key compo-nents also support hot swap and hot backup. Furthermore, the NetEngine 8000 leverages Non-Stop Routing (NSR) and Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF) technologies to ensure uninterrupted service transmission.
Network-level reliability: The NetEngine 8000 uses multiple technologies to ensure network-wide reliability and provide end-to-end protection switching within 50 ms for uninterrupted services. These technologies include: IP fast reroute (FRR), Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) FRR, VPN FRR, TE FRR, hot standby, and fast convergence of Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), BGP, and multicast routes. Other technologies used by NetEngine 8000 to ensure reliability include Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), trunk load balanc-ing and backup, bidirectional forwarding detection (BFD), Ethernet operation, administration and mainte-nance (OAM), routing protocol/port/VLAN damping, Topology-Independent Loop-free Alternate FRR
(TI-LFA), and egress protection through mirror segment IDs (SIDs).
Service-level reliability: The NetEngine 8000 uses technologies such as VPN FRR, E-VRRP, VLL FRR, Ether net OAM, pseudo wire (PW) redundancy, and enhanced trunk (E-Trunk) to provide service-level redundancy for L2VPNs and L3VPNs, ensuring stable, reliable, and uninterrupted services.
Dual-device hot backup: The NetEngine 8000 provides 1+1 or 1:1 hot backup for multicast services.
Comprehensive OAM Technologies
The NetEngine 8000 provides point-to-point Ethernet fault management in compliance with IEEE 802.3ah and supports connectivity fault management (CFM) OAM for end-to-end fault detection and locating. The NetEngine 8000 provides Ethernet performance management in compliance with ITU-T Y.1731. By inserting a timestamp into 802.1ag loopback (LB) messages, the NetEngine 8000 can measure performance indicators, such as latency, jitter, and packet loss rate. Performance measurement can be conﬁgured as a scheduled task, and performance statistics reports are output through collaboration with iMaster NCE.
iFIT can collect SLA information in real time, upload this information to iMaster NCE for intelligent analysis, control, and management, and deliver service policies. If a fault occurs, iFIT enables fault locating within minutes, implementing a SLA-based closed-loop. In the meantime, data is sent to the AI cloud platform for training and self-learning to match more service types and fault models. This makes the "network brain" smarter and enables WANs to move toward becoming autonomous driving networks.
The NetEngine 8000 boasts an environmentally friendly design with energy saving features.
The NetEngine 8000 is equipped with an industry-leading powerful heat dissipation system. The system is powered by multiple cutting-edge technologies, including an aerospace-grade mixed-ﬂow fan, carbon nanotube thermal pad, vapor chamber liquid cooling radiator, and board-speciﬁc ﬂoating heat dissipation. The optimal head dissipation design greatly improves heat dissipation efficiency while reducing the power consumption of the entire system.
Equipped with Huawei-developed Solar R chips, the NetEngine 8000 leverages leading nanotechnologies in combination with chip-level dynamic frequency adjustment and intelligent fan speed adjustment technolo gies to signiﬁcantly reduce power consumption. In this way, the NetEngine 8000 is optimized for energy conservation.
