Remote security management, such as SNMPv3, SSH, and HTTPS remote management.
Management behavior control and audit, including AAA server central authentication, command line authority and real-time report of operation records.
Uses granular identification and control to rate limit and filter application layer services and ensure bandwidth and provides detailed network statistics for network optimization.
Supports equal cost multiple path (ECMP) and unequal cost multiple path (UCMP) load balancing. UCMP allows the device to perform bandwidth-based load balancing.
Performs load balancing based on bandwidth, user, user group, service, or application by using asymmetric link, traffic load balancing, and multi-topology dynamic routing technologies.
Supports flexible bandwidth sharing based on service, user, user group, link, and user bandwidth.
Intelligent network management
Comprehensive network management methods—Supports command line and SNMP.
Zero-configuration setup and configuration rollback—Enables zero-configuration batch device startup, and automatic fallback in the event of configuration errors.
Comware embedded EAA function—Monitors the internal events and status of the system's software and hardware components. If a fault occurs, it collects diagnostic information and attempts to make automatic repairs as well as sending the diagnostic information to a specific email address.
Configuration from a USB drive—Provides a USB console port and supports booting and automatic configuration loading from a USB drive.
Supports 1+1 MPU redundancy.
Supports hot swapping of interface modules and 1+1 CF card backup.
Separation of the control place and forwarding plain maximizes the fault isolation capability and enhances system reliability.
Independent hardware processing module for the monitoring system and programmable components that supports online upgrade and auto loading to strengthen product reliability.
Supports bidirectional forwarding detection (BFD), which can detect faults in milliseconds and can collaborate with static routing, RIP/OSPF/BGP/ISIS dynamic routing, VRRP, and interface backup through the track module.
Supports network quality analyzer (NQA), which can collaborate with static routing, VRRP, and interface backup through the track module.
Supports multi-device redundancy and load balancing (VRRP/VRRPE).
