        Powerful security features

        * Service security

        * Packet filtering, including stateful filtering, MAC address filtering, IP and port number filtering, and time based filtering.

        * Real-time traffic analysis.

        * Network security

        * Comprehensive VPN technologies, including IPsec, L2TP, GRE, ADVPN, MPLS VPN, and combinations of multiple VPN technologies.

        * Routing protocol security protection, such as OSPF/RIP/IS-IS/BGP authentication, OSPFv3/RIPng/IS-ISv6/BGP IPS encryption, and rich routing policy control functions.

        * End device access security

        * Integrated terminal access binding authentication, including EAD security check authentication, 802.1X authentication, endpoint MAC address authentication, Web-based portal authentication, endpoint access static binding, and MAC address auto-learning and binding.

        * Device management security

        * Role-based access control that allocates resources based on roles, and provides users and roles mapping.

        * Control plane traffic control and filtering based on protocol type, queue, known protocol and specific protocol.

        * Remote security management, such as SNMPv3, SSH, and HTTPS remote management.

        * behavior control and audit, including AAA server central authentication, command line authority and real-time report of operation records.

        Network virtualization

        * Intelligent Resilient Framework 2 (IRF2)—Virtualizes two devices into one logical device. This technology significantly decreases networking complexity, reduces the operation and maintenance cost, enhances bandwidth and equipment utilization, and improves management efficiency.

        * Multichassis link aggregation—Enables the device to perform load balancing and backup among multiple uplinks to increase reliability of the overall network architecture and enhance link resources efficiency.

        Cloud interconnection

        The device can use VXLAN to provide Layer 2 network connectivity between data centers. The VXLAN solutions are easy to deploy and cost efficient. You just need to deploy one or more VXLAN-capable devices on the site edge and no modifications for the enterprise or the service provider networks are required. The VXLAN solution combined with the IPSec solution can enhance the data transmission security between data centers over the public network.
