Huawei launches 4T router line card for the cloud backbone era

At Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Huawei unveiled what it believes to be the industry's first 4T router line card – that’s four terabits – delivering the industry's highest density 100 Gigabit Ethernet interface interconnection.

The line cards will boost the capacity of Huawei's NetEngine9000 series core router (NE9000), which currently supports 80Tb/s in a single chassis (and petabit capacity in a multi-chassis configuration), expandable in the future to 160Tb/s in a single chassis.
