Full Service Support

Full Service Support

  • ZXR10 5960 supports diversified VLAN features, including Port-based VLAN, Subnet VLAN, Protocol-based VLAN, Selective QinQ and VLAN translation in order to separate/distinguish different users’ different services in different scenarios.
    ZXR10 5960 supports Voice VLAN (which means the automatic assignment of dedicated VLAN and QoS strategy to voice equipment), thus enabling the voice traffic to enjoy high priority.
    Multicast-based technologies like video surveillance/tele-presence are important services for Enterprise users nowadays. ZXR10 5960 fully supports L2/L3 multicast, including IGMP snooping, Filtering, Proxy and Fast-leave, MVR (Multicast VLAN Registration) and PIM-SM to facilitate the deployment of these services.
    ZXR10 5960 fully supports MPLS L2/L3 VPN, providing an economical reliable VPN solution for commercial uses.
    ZXR10 5960 also supports MCE, enabling it to run multiple VPN instances without running MPLS, and relieving the pressure on PE (provider edge) equipment.

Data Center Features

Data Center Features

  • ZXR10 5960 supports multiple EVB (Ethernet Virtual Bridging) patterns including VM, VEB and VEPA (Virtual Ethernet Port aggregator), and these different patterns can coexist, so it can fulfill different networking requirements. With full support for related protocols like VDP, EDCP and CDCP, EVB can run smoothly.

    • DCTCP (Data Center TCP)
    • PFC (Priority-based Flow Control)
    • QCN (Quantized Congestion Notification)
    • ETS (Enhanced Transmission Selection)
    • DCBX (Data Center Bridging Exchange)

Adjustable Airflow

Adjustable Airflow

  • The direction of 5960’s airflow can be adjusted by using different fan modules. Users can select back-to-front airflow or front-to-back airflow at will, which is especially useful in Data Center networking scenario. Holes for ventilation purpose located on side panels/ and front/rear panels help the air flows to move more smoothly.
