Innovative Virtual Switch Cluster 2.0 (VSC2.0) Technology
- ● Capability: Stacking bandwidth between two switches reach 320Gbps, eliminate VSC bandwidth bottleneck and deliver real-time non-blocking VSC system. By using optical interface stacking, the distance up to 80km and even more, solve the VSC distance restriction while deploy VSC system in different location.
- ● Reliability: Independent out-band management separate the control plane and forwarding plane ,by real-time control information hot-standby technology, VSC system can achieve seamless switchover when failure happens.
- ● Protecting investments: No special stacking line card requirement, line card also can be used for VSC connection. some line card ports role are VSC ports, others ports role are service port. No wasting port deployed and protect investments.
- ● Flexibility: Master and slave works on 1:N redundancy mode, MAD (Multi-active Detect) detect and avoid dual master in VSC system while failure happens. Real-time hot-standby and seamless switchover build more flexible VSC network.
Distributed Module Operating System ROS 5.0
- ● ZXR10 8900E adopts fully-distributed modular design: each function module can be loaded or unloaded independently; each process enjoys its dedicated resources alone; the coordination between processes is efficient and secure.
- ● Each line card own CPU, while the main-control card is equipped with a more powerful CPU. Distributed protocol processing helps promote the overall computing efficiency.
- ● The expansion of management interfaces is flexible. Currently ZXR10 8900E is compatible with management interfaces XML and Netconf.
Powerful Service Bearing Capability
