Modular Ethernet Routers

The HPE HSR6600 Router Series are high-performance service WAN routers, ideal for small-to-medium campus WAN edge and aggregation and high-end branch deployments. These routers are built with a high-performance multi-core networking processor that delivers, in a 2RU form factor, up to 15 Mpps IP forwarding, robust routing, QoS, MPLS, IP VPN, security, and modular WAN and LAN interface options, integrated into a single compact powerful routing platform. In addition, these routers feature robust carrier class reliability capabilities to reduce disruption from network or system failures.

What's new

  • Fully modular Comware v7 network operating system offers improved performance and carrier-class system availability.
  • 2:1 IRF virtualization simplifies management and improves reliability.
  • Feature enhancements including ADVPN, EVI, EAA, and ISSU.
  • 2-port 10GbE SFP+ module (JH143A) doubles 10G Ethernet port density.

20 Gbps Multi-service Routing Platform with Compact Modular Design

The HPE HSR6600 Router Series, leveraging advanced multi-core network processor, can deliver up to 20 Gbps bandwidth, 15 Mpps IP forwarding, 4.8 Gbps IPsec throughput and millions of NAT sessions without feature licensing, fully addressing the edge router performance requirement.

With on-board fixed Ethernet ports and optional modular interface cards, up to 36 x 1GbE or 6 x 10GbE can be supported in a 2RU compact edge routing platform. Besides high density Ethernet, legacy WAN like Serial, E1, T1, POS, CPOS are also supported to meet different connectivity needs.

Comprehensive Routing, Security and Quality of Service (QoS)

The HPE HSR6600 Router Series supports rich IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols including RIP/RIPng, OSPF/OSPFv3, IS-IS/IS-ISv6, BGP/BGP4+, PIM/PIM6, MSDP, MBGP, and policy-based routing delivering increased flexibility. Up to 4 million BGP RIB entries is supported to connect multiple ISPs.

The series supports comprehensive MPLS features, including LDP, MPLS TE, L3 VPN, L2 VPN, VPLS, Multicast VPN, 6PE, and 6vPE which provides more flexibility at cost-effective price-points.

Provides all-round security protection features including packet filtering, stateful firewall, ACL, attack detection and prevention, control plane rate limiting, uRPF, L2tp, GRE, IPSec VPN, and Auto-discovery VPN (ADVPN) and Group Domain VPN (GDVPN).

Offers advanced QoS features, including queue scheduling, congestion avoidance, congestion management, traffic policing, traffic shaping, priority marking, and hierarchical QoS.

Innovative System Virtualization with Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF)

The HPE HSR6600 Router Series uses IRF to implement system virtualization. IRF enables two HSR6600 Routers to form an IRF cluster and work as a single virtual device.

IRF simplifies management. Two routers work as one virtual device which simplifies device management and network topology management, improves operation and maintenance efficiency, and lowers maintenance costs.

IRF improves network availability. IRF allows for cross-chassis bundling of Ethernet and POS WAN links to implement load sharing and link backup. This mechanism enhances network redundancy, improves link utilization, removes single points of failure, and avoids service interruption.

IRF increases scalability. The virtual device has doubled slots, ports, and performance.

Carrier-class High Availability

The HSR6600 Router Series supports redundant power modules (AC or DC) and replaceable fan-tray. All line-cards and interface modules on the router are hot-swappable.

Comware network operating system is a proven, modular highly fault-tolerant and feature-rich operating system that operates across the Hewlett Packard Enterprise networking portfolio.

The series supports comprehensive high availability features that reduce service disruption including non-stop routing, graceful restart, BFD, VRRP, stateful failover, IGP fast convergence, in-service software upgrades (ISSU), fast reroute, and innovative IRF based multi-chassis resiliency.

Traffic policing: supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate

Congestion management: supports FIFO, PQ, CQ, WFQ, CBQ, and RTPQ

Congestion avoidance: Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED)/Random Early Detection (RED)

Other QoS technologies: support traffic shaping, FR QoS, MPLS QoS, and MP QoS/LFI

Stateful VPN Firewall: provides enhanced stateful packet inspection and filtering; supports flexible security zones and virtual firewall containment; provides advanced VPN services with Triple DES (3DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption at high performance and low latency, Web content filtering, and application prioritization and enhancement

Access control list (ACL): supports powerful ACLs for both IPv4 and IPv6; ACLs are used for filtering traffic to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the network, or for controlling network traffic to save resources; rules can either deny or permit traffic to be forwarded; rules can be based on a Layer 2 header or a Layer 3 protocol header; rules can be set to operate on specific dates or times

RADIUS: eases switch security access administration by using a password authentication server

Terminal Access Controller Access-Control System (TACACS+): is an authentication tool using TCP with encryption of the full authentication request that provides additional security

Network address translation (NAT): supports repeated multiplexing of a port and automatic 5-tuple collision detection, enabling NAPT to support unlimited connections; supports blacklist in NAT/NAPT/internal server, a limit on the number of connections, session log, and multi-instance
