The HPE MSR4000 Router Series offers high-performance routing with up to 36 Mpps forwarding and 28 Gbps of IPSec encryption throughput to meet the bandwidth demands of the branch.

Supports branch services with a comprehensive feature set and eases the cloud transition with integrated security.

Delivers powerful aggregation capacity and high port density to satisfy the largest branches.

Increases Your Return on Investment

The HPE MSR4000 Router Series is a modular platform with a wide range of connectivity options that enables the right design for your needs.

Reduces your TCO through open standards, power and space savings, and energy-efficient hardware.

Deploy advanced features with no additional licensing.

Boosts Large Branch Agility and Resiliency

The HPE MSR4000 Router Series is built on distributed architecture with separate hardware data and control planes for increased resiliency.

Facilitates high reliability with 4G/LTE and 3G WAN, dual MPUs, redundant power supplies.

Gives you an open standards approach to networking with the Open Application Platform module by supporting HPE AllianceOne applications such as WAN acceleration and Microsoft Skype for Business (Lync).

Static IPv4 routing: provides simple, manually configured IPv4 routing

Routing Information Protocol (RIP): uses a distance vector algorithm with UDP packets for route determination; supports RIPv1 and RIPv2 routing; includes loop protection

Open shortest path first (OSPF): delivers faster convergence; uses this link-state routing Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), which supports ECMP, NSSA, and MD5 authentication for increased security and graceful restart for faster failure recovery

Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP-4): delivers an implementation of the Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) utilizing path vectors; uses TCP for enhanced reliability for the route discovery process; reduces bandwidth consumption by advertising only incremental updates, and supports extensive policies for increased flexibility, as well as scales to very large networks

Intermediate system to intermediate system (IS-IS): uses a path vector Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), which is defined by the ISO organization for IS-IS routing and extended by IETF RFC 1195 to operate in both TCP/IP and the OSI reference model (Integrated IS-IS)

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP): determines the MAC address of another IP host in the same subnet; supports static ARPs; gratuitous ARP allows detection of duplicate IP addresses; proxy ARP allows normal ARP operation between subnets or when subnets are separated by a Layer 2 network

User Datagram Protocol (UDP) helper: redirects UDP broadcasts to specific IP subnets to prevent server spoofing

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP): simplifies the management of large IP networks and supports client and server; DHCP Relay enables DHCP operation across subnets
