Non-blocking Performance with Powerful Caching Capacity
The RG-S6250 Series is a powerful collection of line-rate switches customized to power the next-generation data centers and cloud computing.
The RG-S6250 Series provides 48 x 10G ports and 8 x 100G ports. All the ports can forward data at the line rate.
The switches employ an advanced cache scheduling mechanism to maximize the device’s cache capability, ensuring truly non-blocking transmission in the increasingly demanding data center environment.
Data Center Virtualization
The RG-S6250 Series adopts the industry-leading Virtual Switch Unit(VSU) technology to achieve unified network management, reduce network nodes and enhance network reliability. The failover time for link failure is within 50 to 200ms to guarantee uninterrupted operation for mission-critical applications. The cross-device link aggregation feature enables access to servers or switches to achieve active-active uplinks.
Data Center Overlay Networking
The RG-S6250 Series supports VXLAN to meet the data center overlay networking requirements. This addresses the difficulty to expand traditional data center networks due to insufficient VLANs.
The basic network built by the RG-S6250 Series can be divided into new subnets based on the overlay technology, without changing the physical topology or considering the restrictions on IP addresses and broadcast domains of physical networks.
Data Center Layer-2 Network Expansion
The VXLAN technology encapsulates layer-2 packets into User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets, which enables the establishment of a logically layer-2 network on the layer-3 network. The RG-S6250 Series, supporting the EVPN protocol, can automatically discover and authenticate virtual tunnel end point (VTEPs), thereby reducing flooding at the VXLAN data plane and eliminating dependency of VXLAN on underlying multicast services. This simplifies VXLAN deployment and improves the efficiency of large layer-2 network building to better meet the requirements of deploying a large layer-2 network in data centers.
Carrier-Class Reliability Protection
The RG-S6250 Series supports built-in redundant power modules and modularized fan components. All the power modules and fan modules are hot-pluggable to guarantee undisturbed switching operation. In addition, the switches support fault detection and automatic alarms for the power and fan modules. The rotation speed of the fans automatically adjusts to the ambient temperature. The switches further provide device-level and link-level reliability protection with the over-current, over-voltage, and overheating protection measures.
The RG-S6250 Series also supports features like REUP (Rapid Ethernet Uplink Protection), Graceful Restart (GR) and Bidirectional Forwarding (BFD) mechanisms. All the features ensure the network convergence time is unaffected even when the network bears abundant services and heavy traffic, and therefore ensure normal operation.
IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack Multi-Layer Switching
The hardware of the RG-S6250 Series supports line-rate IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack multi-layer switching, and distinguishes and processes IPv4 and IPv6 protocol packets. The switches also support multiple tunneling technologies including manually configured tunnels, automatic tunnels, ISATAP tunnels and so on. The switches provide flexible IPv6 inter-network communication solutions to be realized according the requirement plan and status quo of the IPv6 networks.
The series supports a wide range of IPv4 routing protocols including static routing, RIP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP4, which can be selected flexibly according to the network environment. The series also supports an abundant list of IPv6 routing protocols, such as static routing, RIPng, OSPFv3, and BGP4+, which can be selected flexibly either to upgrade the existing network to IPv6 network or to construct a new IPv6 network.
Flexible and Comprehensive Security Policies
The RG-S6250 Series features multiple security features, which effectively defend against and control virus flooding and hacker attacks. These features include anti-DoS attack, validity check of ARP packets on ports, and multiple hardware-based ACL policies.
The switches support hardware-based IPv6 ACLs, which can easily control IPv6 users’ access to edge devices even when IPv6 users exist within an IPv4 network. It allows coexistence of IPv4 and IPv6 users on the network and can control access permissions of IPv6 users, such as restricting access to sensitive resources on the network.
The switches also support Telnet access control based on source IP addresses. The measure prevents unauthorized users or hackers from attacking or controlling devices and thereby enhances security of the device NMS. The RG-S6250 Series also implement Secure Shell (SSH) and SNMPv3 to encrypt management information in Telnet and SNMP processes, thereby ensuring security of management device information and preventing hacker from waging attacks or controlling devices.
The series prevents unauthorized users from network access through multiple functions. These functions include multi-element binding, port security, time ACL, and bandwidth limit based on data traffic. The RG-S6250 Series highly strengthens access security and are perfect match for large-sized networks.
The RG-S6250 Series supports a family of management ports such as Console, MGMT and USB. The switches also support SNMP v1/v2c/v3, a universal network management platform and BMC. The switches enable Command Line Interface (CLI), Telnet, and cluster management, which simplify device management and provide various encryption modes such as SSH2.0 and SSL to enhance network security.
The switches support SPAN/RSPAN mirroring and multiple mirroring observation ports, offering users high visibility and transparency for easy maintenance. The switches also provide a wide range of network traffic reports to help users optimize network structure and adjust resources deployment accordingly.
