Fixed Port Ethernet Routers

The HPE MSR900 Router Series delivers speeds of up to 100 Kpps and integrates routing, switching, security, and 802.11b/g wireless LAN in a single box for demanding small branch connectivity. The MSR900 Router delivers a converged network solutions, including data, voice and video, IPv6 support, and robust Quality of Service (QoS) to support enterprise networking applications. Additionally, a standards-based design provides complete interoperability in multivendor environments.

Features

High Performance

The HPE MSR900 Router Series provides forwarding performance of up to 100 Kpps to meet current and future bandwidth-intensive application demands for small branch offices.

Embedded encryption supports up to 100 VPN tunnels and 8 Mbps throughput.

Quality of Service (QoS)

The HPE MSR900 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 MSR900 Router Series reduces training time and expenses, and increases productivity in multivendor installations.

Management security supporting multiple privilege levels to restrict access to critical configuration commands.

Remote monitoring (RMON) uses standard SNMP to monitor essential network functions; supports events, alarm, history, and statistics group plus a private alarm extension group.

Always-on Connectivity

The HPE MSR900 Router Series delivers packet storm protection against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds.

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

3G access support for popular USB 3G modems 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

Port isolation: increases security by isolating ports within a VLAN while still allowing them to communicate with other VLANs

VLANs: support IEEE 802.1Q-based VLANs
