Modular Ethernet Routers

The HPE MSR20-1x Router Series is full-featured, economical and designed for both the converged wired and wireless WAN and LAN environments at remote branch offices and small to medium-sized businesses. The MSR20-1x Series delivers speeds up to 160 Kpps and integrates routing, switching, security, wireless, and voice services while reducing complexity, simplifying management, and increasing control. These routers enable an agile and flexible network infrastructure that can quickly adapt to changing business requirements.

Features

High Performance

The HPE MSR20-1x Router Series provides powerful encryption capacity with embedded hardware encryption accelerator designed for converged WAN environments at remote branch offices and small to medium-sized businesses.

Flexible chassis selection meeting different requirements on enterprise branches.

Provides forwarding performance of up to 160 Kpps to meet bandwidth-intensive application demands.

Quality of Service (QoS)

The HPE MSR20-1x Router Series provides traffic policing to support Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate for enhanced throughput.

Congestion management and avoidance boosts network quality.

Also supports traffic shaping, FR QoS, and MP QoS/LFI.

Management Flexibility

The HPE MSR20-1x Router Series reduces training time and expenses, and increases productivity in multivendor installations.

Management security provides multiple privilege levels restricting access to critical configuration commands.

Remote monitoring (RMON): uses standard SNMP to monitor essential network functions while supporting events, alarms, history, and statistics groups plus a private alarm extension group.

Always-on Connectivity

The HPE MSR20-1x Router Series provides packet-storm protection to protect against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds.

Supports internal loopback testing for maintenance purposes and an increase in availability while loopback-detection protects against incorrect cabling or network configurations.

Provides Wi-Fi, 3G access, fiber and copper interfaces, and multiple WAN interfaces for traditional and Ethernet access for increased flexibility.

Backup Center: acts as a part of the management and backup function to provide backup for device interfaces; delivers reliability by switching traffic over to a backup interface when the primary one fails

Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP): allows groups of two routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available routed environments; supports VRRP load balancing

Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): fully supports standard IEEE 802.1D STP, IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) for faster convergence, and IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP)

Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) and Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) protocol snooping: effectively control and manage the flooding of multicast packets in a Layer 2 network

Port mirroring: duplicates port traffic (ingress and egress) to a local or remote monitoring port

VLANs: support IEEE 802.1Q-based VLANs

sFlow: allows traffic sampling
