Innovative CPU + NP Heterogeneous Forwarding Architecture: Delivering High Performance for L3–L7 Service Processing

In the SD-WAN era, routers need to process a growing number of services at L1–L7 instead of only L1–L3, placing more stringent requirements on forwarding performance. To tackle this new challenge, the NetEngine AR6000 series adopts an innovative CPU + NP heterogeneous forwarding architecture, with optimized L3–L7 service processing capabilities delivering SD-WAN performance far higher than the industry average.

Optimal Application Experience

Optimal Critical Application Experience and Improved Bandwidth Utilization

Critical functions such as SD-WAN, cloud management, routing, switching, VPN, security, voice, and MPLS are integrated. By using application-based intelligent traffic steering, plus optimization technologies to implement comprehensive path optimization — based on core factors, such as application SLA, application priority, and bandwidth utilization —, bandwidth utilization is improved to 90%, effectively helping enterprises build SD-WAN networks that offer an optimized application experience.

Simplified O&M

SD-WAN Ready, Plug & Play, Full-Process Automation

Featuring plug-and-play devices and automatic network provisioning by email, USB, or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), centralized network O&M and management tools provide multi-dimensional visualized reports to quickly locate network faults. Network policy configuration tools help enterprises flexibly formulate network optimization policies, simplifying network deployment and reducing OPEX.
