Huawei CX600 Metro Services Platform (MSP) is a Metro Ethernet product (hereafter referred to as the CX600) base on the routing platform. It focuses on Ethernet services access, aggregation and transmission in metro area. It mainly locates at metro access and aggregation point.
CX600 is adapted to hardware forwarding mechanism and non-blocking switching technology, based on routing platform. It has carrier class reliability, line speed forward capability, perfect QoS management, abundant services processing and excellent expansibility.
The CX600 provides five types of devices: CX600-X16, CX600-X8, CX600-X3, CX600-16, CX600-8.
Key Features Enhanced new chassis design: The CX600-X16 and CX600-X8 new chassis are based on 400G platform which can provide the capacity of 400Gbps per slot. They can fully meet the operators' requirements of network evolution and development when striding to HD Video era. The new chassis features the most compact and energy efficient router currently available in the market, such as the lowest power consumption per GE/10GE and 960 GE ports per rack as well as full backward compatibility w Mobile Backhaul Clock Synchronization
The IEEE 1588V2 is the latest industry standard that enables high-precision clock synchronization and meets the LTE bearer needs of operators. The CX600 series represent the globe' s first MAN products that utilize end-to-end IEEE 1588V2 clock synchronization technology. With auxiliary hardware, CX600 can provide the precision of time synchronization at a sub-microsecond level, fully meeting mobile backhaul requirements of various standards.
Excellent Scalability: The CX600 offers an ideal platform for carriers to build scalable Metro Ethernet Network (MEN) with flexible transport choices such as Ethernet, MPLS and IP. It supports H-VPLS, VLL (EoMPLS), L3 MPLS VPN, policy routing to VPN, DHCP Server/Relay/Snooping, PIM SSM etc., enabling the scalability of MEN in terms of multiple services, network topology and network scale.
Perfect QoS: The CX600 has perfect QoS (Quality of Service) scheduling mechanism, supporting various traffic classification methods and service-aware policies, thus it can guarantee the fairness of traffic scheduling and the flexible differentiation of granular services. The CX600 supports PQ, WRR, WFQ, and also Diff-Serv and Inter-Serv mechanism, realizing the integration of the MPLS TE model and Diff-Serv model. It supports 8CT (Class Type) MPLS DS-TE, 5-level HQoS, and VLL/PWE3 QoS, which ensures end-to-end QoS implementation, reasonable configuration and efficient network resource utilization.
Scalable Multicast: The CX600 supports IPv4/IPv6 multicast protocols, including PIM-SM/DM/SSM/MLDv1 /MLDv2 /Embedded RP/IGMPv3 etc. It also supports multicast functions of MEN, including IGMP snooping under VPLS instance and inter-VLAN multicast. Meanwhile, The CX600 supports multicast Call Admission Control (CAC) feature. By configuring the multicast CAC policies, it can control the quantity and bandwidth of different IGMP snooping multicast groups at interface level and global level. The CX600 provides a flexible and scalable solution for BTV, VoD service deployment on various networks.
Enhanced Subscriber Management: The CX600 can act as Multi Service Edge (MSE) to implement access control and management of DHCP, IPoE, and leased line subscribers. It supports dynamic user access, user management, user-based authentication and accounting, and user-based QoS. Meanwhile, the CX600 provides the Bandwidth on Demand (BoD) service for enterprise users and DHCP users. It changes the traditional piping price-scheme into the value-added service price-scheme, IPv6 Feature The CX600 supports IPv6 basis protocols, IPv6 MPLS VPN (V6 PE), and IS-IS multi-topology. Moreover, the CX600 supports IPv6 over GRE tunnel, IPv6 over IPv4, and IPv4 over IPv6. The CX600 is ready for new network era.
