Description: HPE MSR50-40 DC - Modular expansion base - rack-mountable - remarketed
Mfr Part #: JF285AR
The HP A-MSR50 Series Multi-Service Routers are enterprise modular routers designed for large enterprise branches and regional offices as well as medium-sized businesses. The A-MSR50 series routers deliver high-performance, secure, integrated services on a single platform. They feature a modular design and can accommodate embedded hardware-based encryption and voice processing.
- Open application architecture
- Convergence of routing, switching, voice, security
- Embedded encryption, firewall, security feature
- High reliability, dual power supply, hot-swapping
- Unified management platform
- Management interface control
Provides management access through modem port and terminal interface; provides access through terminal interface, telnet, or SSH.
- Industry-standard CLI with a hierarchical structure
Reduces training time and expenses, and increases productivity in multi-vendor installations.
- Management security
Multiple privilege levels, with password protection, restrict access to critical configuration commands; ACLs provide telnet and SNMP access; local and remote syslog capability allow logging of all access.
- Remote monitoring (RMON)
Uses standard SNMP to monitor essential network functions; supports events, alarm, history, and statistics group plus a private alarm extension group.
- FTP, TFTP, and SFTP support
File Transfer Protocol allows bi-directional transfers over a TCP/IP network and is used for configuration updates; Trivial FTP is a simpler method using UDP.
- Network Time Protocol (NTP)
Synchronizes timekeeping among distributed time servers and clients; keeps consistent timekeeping among all clock-dependent devices within the network so that the devices can provide diverse applications based on the consistent time.
- Info center
Provides a central information center for system and network information; aggregates all logs, traps, and debugging information generated by the system and maintains them in order of severity; outputs the network information to multiple channels based on user-defined rules.
- Flexible port selection
Provides combination of fiber and copper interface modules, 100/1000Base-X auto-speed selection, and 10/100/1000Base-T auto-speed detection plus auto duplex and MDI/MDI-X.
- Packet storm protection
Protects 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 and can be enabled on a per-port or per-VLAN basis for added flexibility.
- Powerful encryption capacity
Includes embedded hardware encryption accelerator to improve encryption performance.
- Hot swappable
Hot-swappable modules allow modules to be replaced without any impact on traffic.
- Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
Allows a group of routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available routed environments.
- IGMP and MLD 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.
- 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.
- Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
Uses a distance vector algorithm with UDP packets for route determination; supports RIPv1 and RIPv2 routing; includes loop protection.
Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) using link-state protocol for faster convergence; supports ECMP, NSSA, and MD5 authentication for increased security and graceful restart for faster failure recovery.
- Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP-4)
Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) with path vector protocol 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.
- Dual stack
Maintains separate stacks for IPv4 and IPv6 to ease transition from an IPv4-only network to an IPv6-only network design.
- Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Uses BGP to advertise routes across Label Switching Paths (LSPs), but uses simple labels to forward packets from any Layer 2 or Layer 3 protocol, thus reducing complexity and increasing performance; supports graceful restart for reduced failure impact; supports LSP tunneling and multilevel stacks.
- Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Layer 3 VPN
Allows Layer 3 VPNs across a provider network; uses MP-BGP to establish private routes for increased security; supports RFC 2547bis multiple autonomous system VPNs for added flexibility.
- Policy routing
Allows custom filters for increased performance and security; supports ACLs, IP prefix, AS paths, community lists, and aggregate policies.
- MAC authentication
Provides simple authentication based on a user's MAC address; supports local or RADIUS-based authentication.
- Network address translation (NAT)
Supports one-to-one NAT, many-to-many NAT, and NAT control, enabling NAPT to support multiple connections; supports backlist in NAT/NAPT, a limit on the number of connections, session log, and multi-instance.
- Secure Shell (SSHv2)
Uses external servers to securely login into a remote device or securely login into MSR from a remote location; with authentication and encryption, it protects against IP spoofing and plain text password interception; increases the security of SFTP transfers.
- Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding (URPF)
Allows normal packets to be forwarded correctly, but discards the attaching packet due to lack of reverse path route or incorrect inbound interface; prevents source spoofing and distributed attacks.
- Open application architecture (OAA)
Provides high-performance application-specific modules fully integrated with the switching architecture; uses the chassis high-speed backplane to access network-related data; increases performance, reduces costs, and simplifies network management.
- Embedded NetStream
Local and global server load balancing module improves traffic distribution using powerful scheduling algorithms, including Layer 4 to 7 services; monitors the health status of servers and firewalls.
- Embedded VPN firewall
Provides enhanced stateful packet inspection and filtering; 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.
- OPEX savings
A common operating system simplifies and streamlines deployment, management, and training, thereby cutting costs, as well as reducing the chance for human error associated with having to manage multiple operating systems across different platforms and network layers.
- Faster time to market
Engineering efficiencies allow new and custom features to be brought rapidly to the market with better initial and ongoing stability.
- Open application architecture
With open application architecture, MSR series routers provides unmatched application and services flexibility, and have the potential to deliver the functionality of multiple devices, creating capital and operational expense savings and lasting investment protection.
- Flexible modular design
Multiple types of modules meet different requirements; for example, Smart Interface Cards (SICs) are small and cost-effective modules, Multi-functional Interface Modules (MIMs) are more high-density and affordable modules, Flexible Interface Cards (FICs) provide high reliability and are hot-swappable, and double-width modules provide high density.
