Ciena’s 5130 Router is purpose-built for 5G networks that converge 4G/5G fronthaul, midhaul, and backhaul (xHaul) networks onto a common, simpler infrastructure. With dense 1/10/25GbE to 100GbE aggregation and support for both hard network slicing (FlexEthernet) and soft network slicing (Segment Routing), the 5130 is the ideal platform to simplify and de-risk the unique 4G to 5G journeys of mobile and wholesale operators.

Features and benefits

  1. Temperature-hardened (-40°C to +65°C) with 9.9”/252mm depth for temperature-challenged or space-constrained locations

  2. 12 x 1/10/25GbE and 2 x 100 GbE fixed ports

  3. L1/L2/L3 low-latency switching

  4. Service isolation using FlexEthernet (FlexE)

  5. Carrier Ethernet, IP routing, SR-MPLS, and SRv6

  6. Hardware-assisted packet OAM scaled to deliver up to 25GbE services with guaranteed SLA differentiation
