Sam:The HP 6608 is a high performance campus WAN router ideal for large campus environments. It features a unique, multi-core processing architecture that enable high throughput performance and scaling by adding multiple line cards in the system. The HP 6608 router delivers 108 Mpps forwarding, 60 Gbps firewall, NAT with 8 million sessions and over 320K sessions per second. The HP 6608 provide comprehensive routing features like MPLS, dynamic routing, IPv6, Nested QoS, switching and security services and flexible connectivity options all integrated on a single modular routing platform. It has carrier class high availability and resiliency features. The MSR50 Series is a high performance branch router that delivers up to 1280Kpps and 2Gbps of routing, firewall, NAT, and QoS. The MSR50 offers converged branch in a box routing, security, switching, wireless, and voice services all in single device.The HP 6608 and HP MSR50 is currently racked and configured with the Spirent Test Center.Chris:
Sam: The HP 6608 leads the industry in terms of performance and scale. No other competitive campus router can reach the same performance without multiple boxes. To put this test into a TCO perspective, the HP 6608 delivers 108Mpps in ONE box compared to up to FIVE boxes from the competition.As a result, customers can save up to 77% on rack space and up to 92% on power.Also, to reduce operating cost, HP routers feature a single unified OS across all router lines. HP offers a unified management system, called HP IMC for centralized or single pane of glass management.For very large campus environments, the HP 6616 router has 8 line cards that have the capability to achieve twice the performance of the HP 6608.
