I would guess it is a CM-2. I do not beleive the CM-5 is scalable up to 
16,000 PNs. Assuming that it does scale that high, I would imagine that
the extra $$$ for the higher number of PNs might have been better spent
buying the vector processing units for a lower number of PNs. (i.e. If 
they were going to go all out, I'd assume they would buy both and mention
the VPUs in the announcement.)

Anyone from the UK know for sure?
