The HP 7000dl Series Router provides an affordable and scalable platform for small and medium businesses as well as medium and large enterprise organizations to connect branch offices to their headquarter locations. The A7000dl Series offers a variety of WAN interface modules and supports wire-speed routing performance with integrated security and convergence capabilities to secure branch office connections edge to edge while simplifying the deployment, management, and support of routers.


Layer 2/3/4 QoS mechanisms: IEEE 802.1p marking, precedence, and DiffServ priority tagging based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), L3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, and source port

QoS maps on Ethernet interfaces: map IEEE 802.1p marking to Layer 3 QoS tag based on ACL settings

Scheduling mechanisms: supports Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ), FIFO, Low Latency Queuing (LLQ), and Priority Queuing (PQ)

Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ): allows allocation of bandwidth to a particular class of traffic based on a percentage of total available bandwidth or maximum kbps throughput

Traffic shaping and QoS support for Ethernet ports: allow the ability to apply WFQ, LLQ, and CBWFQ mechanisms to Ethernet ports based on DiffServ Code Point settings

Equal-cost multi-path (ECMP) for BGP, OSPF, and static routes: provides the ability to load-balance traffic across multiple WAN connections

Multilink capability: MLFR and MLPPP enable multiple T1/E1 ports to be aggregated and dynamically load-balanced across Frame Relay or PPP links

Multi-homing BGP support: supports redundant WAN connections to multiple service providers using BGP routing protocol

Network monitor: Provides performance testing and Layer 3 network connectivity monitoring for integrated IP interfaces and externally connected ADSL/cable modems; can be used to initiate a demand routing backup connection based on the status of IP links

Optional redundant power supply: provides uninterrupted power (provided by HP 600 RPS/EPS)

VLAN support and tagging: support complete IEEE 802.1Q (4,096 VLAN IDs)

IP multicast: supports PIM SM, IGMPv2, and multicast stub routing

PIM Sparse mode: routes IP multicast traffic using PIM Sparse mode (PIM-SM)

DHCP support: acts as a DHCP server, relay, or client

SNTP Client/Server: SNTP client: obtains time settings from NTP server using SNTP. SNTP server: device will respond to SNTP client requests for time settings.

IP routing protocols: supports static routes, RIP, RIPv2, OSPF, and BGP4

Policy-based routing: allows users to route based upon both source and destination address

Route redistribution: redistributes routes between BGP, OSPF, RIP, and static routes

Concurrent bridging and routing: simultaneously bridge non-IP traffic and route IP traffic on the same interface

VLAN-aware bridging: ability to preserve IEEE 802.1Q tag across Frame Relay, PPP, and HDLC WAN circuits

WAN protocols: provides support for PPP, Frame Relay, IPSec, HDLC, DDR, MLPPP, MLFR, PPPoA, and PPPoE

Dial-on-Demand Routing (DDR): ISDN or analog modem links activate when interesting traffic needs to be routed, helping to avoid costs associated with toll charges

Channelized T1/E1 support: enables connections of up to 24 or 30 locations at 64 kbps, terminating on a single T1 or E1 WAN port on the 8xT1/E1 module
