The HP MSR20 router series is a component of the HP FlexBranch solution, which is part of the HP FlexNetwork architecture. It features a modular design that delivers unmatched flexibility for small branch offices and small to medium-sized businesses while reducing complexity, simplifying management, and increasing control.

MSR20 series routers provide a full-featured, resilient routing platform, including IPv6 and MPLS, up to 180 Kpps forwarding capacity, and 100 Mbps encryption. These products offer lasting investment protection, and help reduce capital and operating expenses.

MSR20 series routers provide an agile, flexible network infrastructure that offers the ability to quickly adapt to changing business requirements while delivering integrated, concurrent services on a single, easy-to-manage platform.        

Features

Quality of Service (QoS)

Traffic policing: supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate
Congestion management: supports FIFO, PQ, CQ, WFQ, CBQ, and RTPQ
Congestion avoidance: Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED)/Random Early Detection (RED)
Other QoS technologies: support traffic shaping, FR QoS, MPLS QoS, and MP QoS/LFI

Management

Industry-standard CLI with a hierarchical structure: reduces training time and expenses, and increases productivity in multivendor 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 capabilities allow logging of all access
SNMPv1, v2, and v3: provide complete support of SNMP; provide full support of industry-standard Management Information Base (MIB) plus private extensions; SNMPv3 supports increased security using encryption
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: FTP allows bidirectional transfers over a TCP/IP network and is used for configuration updates; Trivial FTP is a simpler method using User Datagram Protocol (UDP)

Connectivity

High-density port connectivity: provides up to 4 interface module slots and up to 18 Fast Ethernet ports
Multiple WAN interfaces: provide a traditional link with E1, T1, ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+, G.SHDSL, ATM, Serial, and ISDN/AM backup; provide high-density Ethernet access with WAN Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet and LAN 4- and 9-port Fast Ethernet; provide mobility access with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and 3G
Packet storm protection: protects against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds
Loopback: 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
Flexible port selection: provides a 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

Performance

Powerful encryption capacity: includes embedded hardware encryption accelerator to improve encryption performance
Flexible chassis selection: offers a choice of three routers, meeting different requirements on enterprise branches
Excellent forwarding performance: provides forwarding performance up to 180 Kpps; meets current and future bandwidth-intensive application demands of enterprise businesses
