MPLS router ME5000

Personal order only
Key features
  • Reliable and high perfomance solution
  • Wide support for MPLS switching mechanisms
  • Redundant power supply
ME series routers are multifunctional devices with a high port density intended for use in provider networks as aggregation routers and IP/MPLS network edge routers. This solution can be used to organize operator’s points of presence when providing data services for large customers with high reliability requirements.

ME series routers have unified software and management interfaces. In addition to traffic routing and switching, the main device functions are a wide support for MPLS switching mechanisms, including MPLS Layer3 VPN, VPLS (Kompella/Martini), VPWS with pseudowire backup capabilities, Multicast-traffic routing with support for PIM-SM/PIM-SSM/MSDP/Anycast PIM protocols, as well as extensive QoS capabilities. This set of functions allows to use devices as network edge routers for termination of client services.

Fault tolerance of devices is ensured by redundant power supply "1+1" (modular ME5000 routers are equipped with 2 DC feeders -48V instead of redundant power modules) and by redundant fan modules. All redundant units are hot-swappable.

ME5000 is a high performance modular router with a hardware architecture that provides flexible scaling and the ability of hardware configuration for various requirements both in terms of bandwidth and types of network interfaces. ME5000 router modules are installed in the chassis — standard 19" eurorack 15U. The chassis has 2 slots for fabric and management cards (FMC) and 12 slots for line cards (LC).

ME5100S and ME5200S routers with hardware support for network synchronization and the SyncE protocol, equipped with dedicated SMB interfaces for I/O synchronization signals (10 MHz). The devices can be used on converged networks of mobile operators as a Mobile Backhaul transport.
