Boosts Agility and Resiliency

With advanced hardware architecture, you get reliable, high-performance functionality with multi-core processors.

Advanced hardware architecture with multi-core processors ensures reliable, high performance functionality.

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
