Huawei's NetEngine 8000 Series routers received the "Global Service Router New Product Innovation Leadership Award" from Frost & Sullivan, a renowned consulting firm, at the Excellence in Best Practices Awards Gala.
The NetEngine 8000 series is the industry's first router that provides a capacity of 14.4T per slot, which is 1.5 times the industry average.
According to Frost & Sullivan, present services in the 5G and cloud era bring uncertainty to metro network traffic and direction. Vendors need to continuously innovate to help operators provide new services in a faster and more reliable manner.
After analyzing the advantages of Huawei's NetEngine 8000 series in technologies and products, research and development (R&D) capabilities, industry leadership, as well as brand influence, Frost & Sullivan determined that the series consists of outstanding intelligent metro routers.
President of Huawei's Service Router Domain, Hank Chen commented, "Huawei has engaged in router R&D since 1995. After more than two decades of continuous investment, Huawei established itself as a leading intelligent IP network provider. The NetEngine 8000 series large-capacity new platform continues to lead in the service router field. Huawei actively promotes the implementation of SRv6 standards at Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and cooperates with operators to accelerate the development of the industry and commercial use of SRv6."
