S6500 High-End Multi-Service Switch Sales Guide 1 Market Orientation of the S6500
The S6500 series high-end multi-service switch is a new generation of 10 Gbps platform-based high-performance switch independently developed by Huawei-3Com. It can be widely applied to the core layer and convergence layer of government industrial networks, campus networks and enterprise networks as well as the convergence layer of carries’ IP MANs and the access layer of data centers. Based on the 10 Gbps platform, the S6500 supports new-generation

high-performance, high-density, wire-speed 10Gbps interfaces and can provide super high-speed links for MANs, campus networks and data centers to construct an end-to-end Ethernet featuring low cost, high performance and the capabilities to support abundant services. It provides large-capacity, high-density, modularized L2 and L3 wire-speed forwarding performance and provides abundant service functions, powerful QoS guarantee, complete security management and carrier-class high reliability design to fully satisfy the requirements of enterprise users and carries for multiple services, high reliability, large capacity and high bandwidth. At present, the S6500 has been sold to carries and enterprise network markets in many countries and regions such as Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand, Brazil, France, Russia and India.

2 Version Planning of the S6500
The new-generation S6500 series high-end multi-service switch has added the XG bus design while reserving the GE bus, so that it can be completely compatible with the interface modules of V100. At present, the chassis, main control unit and interface modules of V100 are end of sales and no longer supplied. The chassis, super engines and interface modules currently on sale are all of V200. We may tell if the chassis is of the old version or new version by the mark at the upper right corner on the chassis (there is the “XGbus” mark on the new chassis). Currently, the released V200R001/R002/R003 supports centralized forwarding and the interface module adopts the GE bus uplink. The V200R005/R006 to be subsequently released will

support distributed forwarding and all the interface module will adopt the XG bus uplink. The interface modules that adopt the XGbus uplink include LS8M1GP48-XG, LS8M1GT48B-XG, LS8M1TGX4-XG. The service module that adopts the XGbus uplink includes LS8M1VSNP. Notes: 1) When the interface modules and service modules configured in the system adopt the XGbus uplink, the main control unit can only use Salience III or Salience III Plus rather than Salience III Edge. 2) S6500 can support distributed forwarding only between interface modules with XGBUS uplink or between interface modules with XGBUS uplink and service modules with XGBUS uplink. There is already a plan for the S6500 to support features such as IPV6 and MPLS. The hardware of the released boards does not support features such as IPV6 and MPLS. In order to be also compatible with the released boards, the S6500 adopts the following two policies: 1) Centralized forwarding. In this case, we only need to replace the engine but not the interface modules or chassis. 2) Distributed forwarding. In this case, we need to replace the engine and the interface modules but not the chassis. The roadmap will be updated in step with the R&D progress. For the latest updates, please consult the Product Manager of the S6500 in the headquarters. The sales guide to the S6502M and EPON products is not covered by this document but is additionally provided.

and

S6502, S6503, S6506 and S6506R V200 share the same software version. The chassis of the S6502/S6503 already contains the software license fee and so the license does not need to be additionally purchased. The software license of the S6506/S6506R must be additionally purchased.

3 New Features of V200R005/R006
V200R005/R006 of the S6500 has added the following hardware features: 1) Salience III Plus-768G engine that provides 24 GE buses and 12 XG buses so that every slot of the S6500 supports the XG bus. 2) High-density, wire-speed 4 × 10GE interface module and 2 × 10GE interface module. 3) High-density, wire-speed 48GE electrical interface module. 4) High-density, wire-speed 48GE optical interface board. 5) High-density, wire-speed 16GE electrical and 8GE optical as well as 32GE electrical and 16GE optical blend interface modules. 6) Hardware-based VSNP service module that supports NAT, NetStream and Policy-based Routing.

V200R005/R006 has added the following software features: 1) Cross-board link aggregation: The ports on GP8UB and GT8UE, the four ports on the Salience III Edge/Salience III engine as well as the ports on the interface modules with XGbus uplink support cross-board aggregation. The other boards do not support this function. 2) Cross-board mirroring: The ports on GP8UB and GT8UE, the four ports on the Salience III Edge/Salience III engine as well as the ports on the interface modules with XGbus uplink support cross-board mirroring. The other boards do not support this function. 3) RSPAN: All the interface modules on sales can support RSPAN. The ports on GP8UB and GT8UE, the four ports on the Salience III Edge/Salience III engine as well as the ports on the interface modules with XGbus uplink can support cross-board RSPAN also. 4) NAT. For the technical details, refer to EN-Plm-Twp-NAT-V1.01(20060118). 5) NetStream. For the technical details, refer to

EN-Plm-Twp-NetStream-V1.01(20060118). 6) Policy-based Routing. 7) The optical interfaces support the DLDP feature (unidirectional link detection). This feature can implement the same function as Cisco UDLD. 8) Distributed forwarding: SRPU must support XGbus. It can support distributed forwarding between interface modules with XGbus uplink or between interface modules with XGbus uplink and service modules with XGbus uplink. It only support centralized forwarding between interface modules with GEbus uplink and

interface modules with XGbus uplink or between interface modules with GEbus uplink. 9) Load-Sharing mode: Only when SRPUs supporting XGbus and interface modules with XGbus uplink is configured, load-sharing can do its work. 10) RRPP: At present, only the optical interfaces of Salience III Edge, Salience III, T12PE and P12TE support the RRPP feature. The RRPP feature will be also supported by other interface boards in the future. In order to support the RRPP feature, the CPLD version of the board must be 005 or later versions. For the technical details, refer to EN-Switch-White Paper-RRPP White Paper V1.0 (20050606). 11) S6500 only supports Vlan-based QinQ currently QinQ: S6500 only supports Vlan-based QinQ currently. It can tag a second 802.1Q tag on top of customer's 802.1Q tag and realize Vlan translation between private network and public network. It provides a method for L2 VPN solutions and save Vlan resource in netwotk.

4 Sales Strategies of the S6500
Our high-end and middle-end switches include S8500, S6500 and S5600: 1) The S8500 is oriented to high-end users of carries’ MANs and enterprise networks and supports numerous WAN interfaces; 2) the S6500 is oriented to the convergence layer of carries’ networks and enterprise networks. It is a pure Ethernet device and does not support WAN interfaces; 3) the S5600 is oriented to the convergence layer of carries’ networks as well as the convergence layer and access layer of enterprise networks. It may be substituted by S6502 in some cases.

4.1 Sales Strategies of the S6500 Salience III Series Engine
A special Salience III series super engines must be used as the main control unit of the S6503/S6506/S6506R. The Salience III series switch and route super engines is designed on the basis of the 10 Gbps platform, support the high-speed XG bus and provides up to 768 Gbps switching capacity. It consists of three styles: Salience III Edge-96G, Salience III-384G and Salience III Plus-768G.

4.1.1 Salience III Edge-96G
The Salience III Edge-96G is a switch and route super engine of cost effective. Although it does not support the interface modules with XGBUS uplink, its 96 Gpbs bidirectional switching capacity can satisfy the high-performance requirement of most

low-end commercial users. It is the best choice for beating the SUPERVISOR ENGINE II-PLUS of Cisco. The Salience III Edge-96G engine supports altogether 48 GE buses. Of them, four GE buses are assigned to the engine itself and can support four GE SFP optical interfaces.
S6503 Valid bandwidth per slot 8/8/8 S6506 8/8/8/8/8/4 S6506R 8/8/8/8/8/4

Except that the last slot of the S6506/S6506R has the valid bandwidth of 4GE, all the rest slots each has the valid bandwidth of 8GE. Notes: 1. LS8M1GT8UE and LS8M1GP8UB can’t be configured in the last slot of S6506 and S6506R when the super engine is Salience III Edge-96G. 2. When the S6506R adopts dual Salience III Edge-96G super engines, the former two ports in main control unit and backup control unit are active. 3. Salience III Edge can’t support distributed forwarding and can’t work in load-sharing mode.

4.1.2 Salience III-384G
As the mainstream engine, the Salience III-384G is compatible with all the interface modules with GEbus uplink and can be configured with the interface modules with XGbus uplink. It is applicable to most scenarios. The Salience III-384G super engine supports altogether 48 GE buses and 4 XG buses. Of them, four GE buses are assigned to the super engine itself and can support four GE SFP optical interfaces.
S6503 Valid bandwidth per slot 8/(8+24)/(8+24) S6506 8/8/8/8/(8+24)/(4+24) S6506R 8/8/8/8/(8+48)/(4+48)

GE buses and XG buses coexist for the last two slots of the S6503/S6506/S6506R, but the GE buses and XG buses in the same slot cannot work simultaneously. Every XG bus provides 12GE bandwidth. The last two slots of the S6503/S6506 each have two XG buses. The S6506R adopts dual engines with each super engine providing two XG buses. If both super engines work in the hot-backup mode, then each of the last two slots of the S6506R can provide two XG buses bandwidth. If both super engines work in the load-sharing mode, then each of the last two slots of the S6506R can provide four XG buses bandwidth. Every slot of the S6503 has eight GE buses and so does every slot of the S6506/S6506R except for the last slot that has four GE buses. Notes: 1. LS8M1GT8UE and LS8M1GP8UB can’t be configured in the last slot of S6506 and S6506R when the super engine is Salience III-384G.

2. When the S6506R adopts dual Salience III-384G super engines, the former two ports in main control unit and backup control unit are active. 3. Salience III can work in load-sharing mode. Load-sharing can do its work in the last slots of S6503/S6506/S6506R only when interface modules with XGbus uplink are configured.

4.1.3 Salience III Plus-768G
The Salience III Plus-768G is the super engine that has the highest performance. It highlights the XGbus and is oriented to high-performance distributed application. When it is applied, the interface modules with XGbus uplink should be configured, lest that the switching performance of the super engine be lower than that of the first two types of engines. The Salience III Plus-768G super engine supports altogether 24 GE buses and 12 XG buses.
S6503 Valid bandwidth per slot (4+48)/ (4+48)/(4+48) S6506 (4+24)/(4+24)/(4+24)/ (4+24)/(4+24)/(4+24) S6506R (4+48)/(4+48)/(4+48)/ (4+48)/(4+48)/(4+48)/

GE buses and XG buses coexist for every slot of the S6503/S6506/S6506R, but the GE buses and XG buses in the same slot cannot work simultaneously. Every XG bus provides 12GE bandwidth, every slot of the S6503 has four XG buses, and every slot of the S6506 has four XG buses. The S6506R adopts dual super engines with each super engine providing two XG buses. If both super engines work in the hot-backup mode, then every slot of the S6506R can provide two XG buses bandwidth. If both super engines work in the load-sharing mode, then every slot of the S6506R can provide four XG buses bandwidth. Every slot of the S6503/S6506/S6506R has four GE buses. Notes: 1. LS8M1GT8UE and LS8M1GP8UB can’t work with Salience III Plus-768G. 2. Salience III Plus can work in load-sharing mode. Load-sharing can do its work in the each slots of S6503/S6506/S6506R only when interface modules with XGbus uplink are configured.

4.1.4 Performance of the S6500 Switches
The S6500 provides the Salience III series switch and route super engine and customers can flexibly select it according to their specific requirements. For the configuration details, please refer to EN-S6500-Conm-S6500 Configuration guide and EN-S6500-Quick-Conm-V2.02.

: Two Salience III Plus-768G super engines are configured on the S6506R switch,

when they work in load-sharing mode, the throughput will be 432Mpps, when they work in hot-backup mode or only one super engine is configured, the throughput will be 216Mpps.

We may take the following method to calculate the actual data packet switching capacity of the engine: S6506R + Salience III Plus-768G: 2 x 2 x (6 x (4+24) + 2x12) = 768 Gbps Salience III Plus-768G is the fabric capacity of the switch and route super engines when dual SRPU is configured in S6506R. During the design, a pair of XG bus is reserved for the inner-connection. Dual SRPU, bidirectional, 6 slot, 4 GEbus and 2 XGbus( Each XGbus is 12GE) per slot, 2 XGbus for fabric inner-connection. S6506R + Salience III-384G: 2 x 2 × (4 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + (8 + 24) + (4 + 24)) = 384 Gbps Dual SRPU, bidirectional, 4 GEbus in SRPU(SRPU can provide 4 GE SFP ports), 8 GEbus per slot in 1~4 slots, 8 GEbus and 2 XGbus( Each XGbus is 12GE) in slot 5, 4 GEbus and 2 XGbus in slot 6. S6503 + Salience III-384G: 2 × (4 + 8 + (8 + 24) + (8 + 24) ) = 152 Gbps Bidirectional, 4 GEbus in SRPU(SRPU can provide 4 GE SFP ports), 8 GEbus in slot 1, 8 GEbus and 2 XGbus( Each XGbus is 12GE) in slot 2~3.

Because the GEbus and XGbus in the same slot cannot work simultaneously, the maximum switching capacity of the integrated equipment for testing in current chassises can be calculated as follows: S6506 + Salience III-384G: 2 × (4 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 24 + 24) = 168 Gbps,

Bidirectional, 4 GEbus in SRPU(SRPU can provide 4 GE SFP ports), 8 GEbus per slot in 1~4 slots, 2 XGbus( Each XGbus is 12GE) per slot in 5 and 6 slots. S6506R + Salience III-384G: 2 × (4 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 2*24 + 2*24) = 264 Gbps, Bidirectional, 4 GEbus in SRPU(SRPU can provide 4 GE SFP ports), 8 GEbus per slot in 1~4 slots, dual SRPU work in load-sharing mode, 2 XGbus( Each XGbus is 12GE) per slot in 5 and 6 slots per SRPU.

The packet forwarding rate of the integrated equipment is calculated as follows: S6506R + Salience III Plus-768G: 1.5 × (6 × 48) = 432 Mpps S6506 + Salience III-384G: 1.5 × (4 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 24 + 24) = 126 Mpps S6506R + Salience III-384G (dual SRPU, in load-sharing mode): 1.5 × (4 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 2*24 + 2*24) = 196 Mpps

4.2 Sales Strategies of Enterprise Network
Product orientation: Core layer and convergence layer of enterprise networks as well as high-density FE/GE access of enterprise IDCs. We may guide customers from the following perspectives: 1) Large switching capacity. The Salience III series switch and route super engines is designed on the basis of the 10 Gbps platform, supports the high-speed XG bus and provides up to 768 Gbps switching capacity as well as 432 Mbps forwarding rate. 2) High port density. In the enterprise network, users can increase the port density layer by layer by means of the switch. The S6500 can provide the 48×GE optical (electrical) interface module, the 32GE electrical and 16GE optical blend interface module and the 4×10GE interface module.

10GE 8 12 24 24

3) Wire speed forwarding. The majority of enterprise network users do not have the wire speed forwarding requirement but wire speed forwarding is a must in the cases of supporting the server cluster. The S6500 can provide high-density interface boards that supports wire speed forwarding, such as the 48×GE optical (electrical) interface board, the 32GE electrical and 16GE optical blend interface module and the 4×10GE interface board. 4) Supports 10GE wire speed interfaces. High-speed forwarding is generally required in the internal core of big enterprises and IDCs. The S6500 can support 1×10GE, 2×10GE and 4×10GE optical interface boards. 5) High availability design. The S6506R and S6502 support dual main control units and dual power supplies and adopt passive backplane design. They support software features such as VRRP, MSTP and ECMP and can satisfy the internal link redundancy and device redundancy requirements of enterprise networks. 6) PoE + voice VLAN feature, through which enterprises can deploy VOIP service. 7) NAT service. Since the majority of enterprise networks adopt private IP addresses, IP address translation must be implemented at the egress of the network. The S6500 supports the blacklist function and limits the link establishment speed and the number of links for a certain user, so that a single user will not take up too many resources and differentiated services can be offered to different users. 8) Security features: 802.1x authentication, Guest VLAN, Dynamic VLAN Assignment, 802.1x Local Server, EAT-TLS, DHCP Security, port binding, SSHv2, RADIUS, HWTACACS and SNMPv3. 9) Built-in DHCP Server: Maximally 8K IP addresses are supported. 10) Powerful QoS functions: Every port has eight hardware queues and supports SP + WRR queue scheduling. 11) Quidview NM platform: The switch is uniformly managed by the Quidview NMS. 12) Port mirroring, RSPAN and aggregation: The S6500 supports cross-board mirroring, cross-board RSPAN and cross-board port aggregation. The ports on GP8UB and GT8UE, the four ports on the Salience III Edge/Salience III super engine as well as the ports on the interface modules with XGbus uplink support cross-board mirroring, cross-board RSPAN and cross-board aggregation. The other modules do not support this function.

13) Supports the NetStream service. The S6500 can collect and export network data to help the network administrator find the applications and users that occupy the most bandwidth and the busiest links as well as helping the network administrator adjust the QoS deployment or routes of the network so as to solve potential performance problems. 14) Policy-based routing. We may guide customers from three aspects: a) Support for link backup. Normally, the forwarding port will be selected according to the link priority. When the interface of a higher priority fails, the switch will automatically select another interface so as to implement high reliability of the network; b) reasonable allocation of bandwidth to guarantee that important customers get high-speed links; c) support for the modification of IP priority, TOS and DSCP. The QoS deployment of the network supporting QoS can be changed by changing these values.

4.3 Sales Strategies of the Carrier Market
Product orientation: Convergence layer of carries’ MANs or small-sized MANs. We may guide customers from the following perspectives: 1) Large switching capacity. The Salience III series switch and route super engine is designed on the basis of the 10 Gbps platform, supports the high-speed XG bus and provides up to 768 Gbps switching capacity as well as 432 Mbps forwarding rate. 2) High port density and wire speed forwarding. The switch supports the 48×GE wire speed optical (electrical) interface board and the 4×10GE wire speed interface board. The integrated equipment of the S6506R supports 292 GE non wire-speed optical (electrical) interfaces and 288 GE wire speed optical (electrical) interfaces and 24 wire speed 10GE interfaces. The integrated equipment of the S6503 supports 148 GE non wire-speed optical (electrical) interfaces and 144 GE wire speed optical (electrical) interfaces and 12 wire speed 10GE interfaces. 3) Supports 10GE wire speed interfaces. The S6500 can support 1×10GE, 2×10GE and 4×10GE wire speed optical interface boards. 4) High availability design: a) The S6506R and S6502 support dual main control units and dual power supplies and adopt passive backplane design; b) They support software features such as VRRP, MSTP and ECMP and can satisfy the internal link redundancy and device redundancy requirements of the network; c) Provide the RRPP ring network solution: They provide the low-cost fault switchover within a matter of sub-seconds. Please refer to the new features of V200R005/R006 previously discussed. 5) Supports QinQ and Selective QinQ. S6500 can tag a second 802.1Q tag on top of customer's 802.1Q tag and realize Vlan translation between private network

and public network. It provides a method for L2 VPN solutions and save Vlan resource in netwotk. 6) NAT service. Since the majority of enterprise networks adopt private IP addresses, IP address translation must be implemented at the egress of the network. The S6500 supports the blacklist function and limits the link establishment speed and the number of links for a certain user, so that a single user will not take up too many resources and differentiated services can be offered to different users. 7) Security features: 802.1x authentication, Guest VLAN, Dynamic VLAN Assignment, 802.1x Local Server, EAT-TLS, DHCP Security, port binding, SSHv2, RADIUS, HWTACACS and SNMPv3. 8) PoE + Voice VLAN feature, through which VOIP service can be deployed. 9) Built-in DHCP Server. The S6500 supports at most 8K IP addresses. 10) Powerful QoS functions: Every port has eight hardware queues and supports SP + WRR queue scheduling. 11) Quidview NM platform: The switch is uniformly managed by the Quidview NMS. 12) Port mirroring, RSPAN and aggregation: The S6500 supports cross-board mirroring, cross-board RSPAN and cross-board port aggregation. The ports on GP8UB and GT8UE, the four ports on the Salience III Edge/Salience III super engine as well as the ports on the interface modules with XGbus uplink support cross-board mirroring, cross-board RSPAN and cross-board aggregation. The other modules do not support this function. 13) Supports the NetStream service. The S6500 can collect and export network data to help the network administrator find the applications and users that occupy the most bandwidth and the busiest links as well as helping the network administrator adjust the QoS deployment or routes of the network so as to solve potential performance problems. 14) Policy based routing. We may guide customers from three aspects: a) Support for link backup. Normally, the forwarding port will be selected according to the link priority. When the interface of a higher priority fails, the switch will automatically select another interface so as to implement high reliability of the network; b) reasonable allocation of bandwidth to guarantee that important customers get high-speed links; c) support for the modification of IP priority, TOS and DSCP. The QoS deployment of the network supporting QoS can be changed by changing these values. 15) Supports the EPON.

4.4 Interconnection Between the S6500 and the MPLS Network
Because the hardware of the S6500 does not support MPLS, the S6500 cannot support MPLS through software upgrading. The following strategies are recommended when the S6500 needs to interconnect and interwork with the MPLS network: 1) If the S6500 needs to interconnect and interwork with the MPLS network in the future but not in the short term, we can provide the roadmap for the S6500 to support the MPLS feature and implement centralized forwarding of MPLS in the future by replacing the main control board. 2) If it is certain that the S6500 needs to interconnect and interwork with the MPLS network in the short term, we may use the AR28 or AR46 as the CE equipment of the MPLS network according to the network performance requirements and use the S6500 as the convergence device in the downlink.

4.5 Sales Strategies of the S6502
Product orientation: The S6502 is an Ethernet switch with two slots constructed on the basis of the S6500. It features large capacity, high density and high cost performance. It is applicable to the convergence layer and access layer of carries’ IP MANs, large enterprise networks and campus networks as well as the backbone layer of small enterprise networks in various industries. In addition, the S6502 provides powerful multicast duplication capabilities and can be used as an IP DSLAM convergence switch or a convergence & multicast switch in the campus network. We may guide customers from the following perspectives: 1) The S6502 has a compact structure and is only 3U high. It supports dual power supply, dual main control units, hot-plugging and does not need any special main control board. Its main control unit may fall into the main control board with GEbus uplink (T12PE and P12TE) and the main control unit with XG bus uplink (GP48, GT48B, T16P, T32P, TGX2 and TGX4). The former (T12PE and P12TE) must be used with the GE bus uplink interface modules. The latter (GP48, GT48B, T16P, T32P, TGX2 and TGX4) must be used with the XG bus uplink interface modules and then the six types of XG bus interface boards can be combined as necessary. 2) Supports cross-board link aggregation and cross-board mirroring (RSPN). When the S6502 supports dual main control units and cross-board link aggregation is configured, the services will not be interrupted in the case of main control unit failure. Note that modules T12PE and P12TE do not support cross-board link aggregation and cross-board mirroring (RSPN). 3) High port density. The S6502 supports up to 48 FE ports, 96 GE ports, eight 10GE ports or any combination of FE/GE/10GE ports. It supports at most 96 wire speed gigabit optical interfaces.

4) Supports routing protocols such as RIP, BGP, OSPF, IS-IS and IPX. 5) Supports the PoE + Voice VLAN feature, through which VOIP service can be deployed. 6) Supports QinQ and Selective QinQ. S6500 can tag a second 802.1Q tag on top of customer's 802.1Q tag and realize Vlan translation between private network and public network. It provides a method for L2 VPN solutions and save Vlan resource in netwotk. 7) Supports NAT/NetStream/PBR. 8) Built-in DHCP Server. The switch supports at most 8K IP addresses. 9) Security features: 802.1x authentication, Guest VLAN, Dynamic VLAN Assignment, 802.1x Local Server, EAT-TLS, DHCP Security, port binding, SSHv2, RADIUS, HWTACACS and SNMPv3. 10) Supports the RRPP protocol and provides the low-cost fault switchover within a matter of sub-seconds as the convergence device of the ring network. Please refer to the new features of V200R005/R006 previously discussed. 11) Supports EPON.

4.6 Sales Strategies of VSNP Boards
In order to adapt to the development trend of the switch towards multiple services and intelligence, we have launched the multi-function service module LS81VSNP (L3+) for the S6500. This service module adopts the high-performance 10GE network processor, provides the centralized NAT/NAPT, NetStream and policy based routing functions, and can cooperate with our powerful service software system to satisfy users’ requirements for network intelligence and manageability. The service module does not provide any external egress interface and should be used with other interface modules. We may guide customers from the following perspectives: 1) Multi-function services and flexible networking: Numerous functions such as NAT, Netstream and policy based routing are integrated on the same board that features very cost effective. The service module supports the typical application of NAT + policy based routing, NetStream + XLOG and NAT + policy based routing + NetStream, so as to satisfy numerous requirements of users. 2) High performance and large capacity: The board adopts the 10GE NP technology, provides the wire speed processing capabilities of up to 10GE and supports quick implementation and flexible upgrade of service functions. Since it adopts the new communication processor CPU, it has powerful processing capabilities and can provide high-speed service processing. It supports 300,000 NetStream statistical entities, 32 IP address pools, 8000 IP addresses, 1000,000 NAT concurrent connections and 100 policy routes.

3) Supports hot-plugging: Users can hot plug the module and add multi-function service boards without affecting the other services. 4) The Netstream processing does not influence the other services: The traditional Netstream is implemented on the router. Since the router adopts the CPU for stream processing, the processing does not have big influence on the other services of the network devices. The Netstream function of the multi-function service processing board of the S6500 is used to implement stream statistics based on traffic mirroring. This implementation mode has very big advantages as compared with the traditional implementation mode and will not influence the existing services. 5) Powerful service software support: The board can cooperate with the service software system XLog of Netstream to provide a report engine that can be flexibly expanded and customized on demand. This software can customize statistical rules through the XML-based report template according to users’ statistical analysis requirements and targets and can automatically generate vivid statistical reports in the form of bar charts, pie charts or curve diagrams. In addition, the XLog software can provide the NAT log function to record the basic information of NAT sessions and provide the address mapping relations before and after NAT. It can record the details about NAT internal and external users’ access to the Internet and monitor the web sites accessed by users. For any question related to XLog, please consult Li Xiaohui (Amy Lee: lixiaohui@huawei-3com.com). 3125 or later software versions are recommended during external tests or formal application.

4.7 Sales Strategies of GP8UB and GT8UE Boards
The ports on GP8UB and GT8UE, the four ports on the Salience III Edge/Salience III engine as well as the ports on the interface modules with XG bus uplink support cross-board link aggregation, cross-board mirroring and cross-board RSPAN. Every port of the GP8UB/GT8UE board supports 100 ACL entries. When the main control board uses Salience III Edge or Salience III, the last slot of the S6506/S6506R only provides four GE buses. Therefore, the GP8UB/GT8UE board cannot be inserted in the last slot.

4.8 16K MAC Addresses of the Whole S6500
Every interface board of the S6500 supports the MAC address table containing 16 K MAC address entries. Suppose the rack-mounted switch mainly implements cross-board packet forwarding, then the MAC address capability of the S6500 is externally claimed to be 16K. When VLANs do not cross boards, the number of MAC addresses supported by the S6500 is the sum of the number of MAC addresses in the MAC address table of every interface module.

4.9 Type A Board and Non-Type A Board
The last letter of the interface module name of the S6500 does not have any special meaning but only indicates the sequence number used in hardware upgrade of the interface module. “A” in Type A interface modules and non-Type A interface modules does not have any specific meaning but only represents the switching chip of a specific vendor. It does not relate to the last letter A of the interface module name. Type A interface modules only include LS81FT48A, LS81FM24A, LS81FS24A, LS81GB8UA and LS81GT8UA. At present, Type A boards are no longer produced. At present, all the interface modules on sale are non-Type A interface modules including LS8M1GT20A, LS8M1GP20A and LS8M1GT48A-POE

5 Comparative Analysis of the S6500 and Cisco Catalyst4500
Cisco Catalyst4500 is the best seller among the enterprise network products of Cisco. It features a long history, stable running, powerful performance, abundant features and flexible configuration. At present, Catalyst4503 and Catalyst4507R are the major competitors of the S6500. Among the numerous engines of the C4500, SE II-Plus, SE II-Plus-TS, SE II-Plus-10G and SE V-10G are the major forces. Below are the configuration policies of Cisco Catalyst4500 and the countermeasures of the S6500.

5.1 Configuration Policies of the Catalyst 4500
The C4500 series switches consist of C4503 (7U, 3 slots), C4506 (10U, 6 slots), C4507R (11U, 7 slots) and C4510R (14U, 10 slots). The C4503/C4506 has a slot specially designed for the engine while the C4507R/C4510R has two slots specially designed for the engine. The engines of Cisco 4500 fall into two types: 1) 2) Layer 2/3/4 Supervisors: They support routing protocols such as

BGP/IS-IS/OSPF/EIGRP, the Netflow feature and the 128K routing table. Layer 2-Plus Supervisors: They support RIPv1/v2 and static routes but not OSPF/BGP/IS-IS or the Netflow feature. They have only 32K route entries and only support 2K VLANs and mainly provide a low-cost, high-density access solution. Performance list of the Cisco 4500 series engines

The SE II-Plus-10GE engine does not support VRF-Lite while the other five types of engines support it and can interconnect and interwork with the MPLS network. The Cisco 4500 SE II-Plus-TS engine can only be applied to the C4503 and supports 12 PoE gigabit electrical interfaces and 8 gigabit SFP interfaces.

5.2 Countermeasures of the Quidway S6500
The Cisco 4500 series switches consist of C4503, C4506, C4507 and C4510R. We use the S6503/S6502 to beat the C4503, the S6506 to beat the C4506, the S6506R to beat the C4507R and the S8508 or S8512 to beat the C4510R. To compete with Cisco Supervisors series engines, the S6500 has adopted the following strategies:

S6502 MCU

1) Our Salience III series super engines feature leading performance (in terms of switching capacity and forwarding rate).

2) The C4500 does not have any 10GE interface board and can only support two 10GE interfaces via SE V-10GE or SE II+ 10GE. The number of interfaces is limited and the configuration is inflexible. The S6500 series supports 1×10GE, 2×10GE and 4×10GE interface boards and is flexible in networking. The integrated equipment of the S6506R supports up to 24 wire speed 10GE ports, the S6503 supports up to 12 wire speed 10GE ports and the S6502 supports up to 8 wire speed 10GE ports. 3) The C4500 series engines all support VRF-Lite. The S6500 series engines do not support MPLS or VRF-Lite but can use the AR28 or AR46 as the CE equipment of the MPLS network. 4) The C4500 series engines do not support NAT, built-in DHCP Server and built-in 802.1X Server. The SE II+10GE, SE II+ and SE II+Ts support RIPv1/2 and static routes but do not support OSPF/BGP/IS-IS and the Netflow feature. Our S6500 supports all the above features. We may guide customers in this aspect. 5) The SE II+Ts engine can only be used for the C4503 to improve the switching capacity and forwarding performance of the C4503. In addition, it increases the port density of the C4503 since it supports 12 PoE gigabit electrical interfaces and 8 SFP gigabit optical interfaces. We may use the S6503+Salience III Edge or S6502 to compete with the E II+Ts engine. The engine of the S6502 can be flexibly configured according to the port but the S6502 can only have the 12PE/P12TE+ FT48F to compete with the E II+Ts engine if the engine must support PoE electrical interfaces.

5.3 Typical Configurations of the Catalyst 4500
5.3.1 Configuration Scheme 1: C4503+ SE II-Plus-Ts + WS-X4148-RJ (or WS-X4548-GB-RJ45)
Feature: It is a low-cost, high-density L2 FE/GE solution or low-cost, low-density L2 FE/GE PoE solution. It provides centralized forwarding, supports VRF-Lite and RIPv1/v2 as well as static routes, and provides the 32K routing table and 2K VLANs. The engine supports 12 gigabit PoE electrical interfaces and 8 SFP optical interfaces. The list price is $12,480 ( or $13,480) for L2 FE/GE solution and $15,475 (or $16,475) for L2 FE/GE PoE solution. Our solution: For L2 FE/GE solution: S6502 + T12PE (or P12TE) + FT48E (or GT48), with the list prices being $10,955 (or $12,455) For L2 FE/GE PoE solution: S6502 + T12PE (or P12TE) + FT48F-POE (or GT48A-POE) + LS8M3POEPWR, with the list prices being $17,805 (or $19,305)

Merits: 1) The S6502 adopts a compact structure and is only 3U high while the C4503 is 7U high. 2) Supports routing protocols such as OSPF, BGP and IS-IS and provides the 64K routing table. 3) Supports 4K VLANs. 4) Supports the built-in DHCP Server. 5) Supports RRPP. 6) Supports the built-in 802.1x local server. Shortcomings: 1) Our solution must use the AR28 as the CE equipment of the MPLS network to interconnect with the MPLS network. 2) When the gigabit PoE solution is a must, our configuration scheme must be changed to S6502 + T12PE + GT48A-POE, which does not have any obvious advantage. In future, RPS500-A will instead of LS8M3POEPWR for PoE power supply. Our solution for low-cost, low density will have price competition.

5.3.2 Configuration Scheme 2: C4506 + SE II-Plus-10GE + WS-X4448-GB-SFP + 4*WS-X4448-GB-RJ
Feature: It is a low-cost, high-density L2 GE solution. It provides centralized forwarding, supports RIPv1/v2 and static routes, and provides the 32K routing table and 2K VLANs. The engine supports two 10 GE ports and four GE ports. This scheme does not support VRF-Lite or Netflow or NAT. The list price is $57,465. Our solution: S6506 + Salience III + TGX2 + GP48 + 4*GT48 with the list price being $63,630 Merits: 1) Supports routing protocols such as OSPF, BGP and IS-IS and provides the 64K routing table. 2) Supports 4K VLANs. 3) Supports the built-in DHCP Server. 4) The engine ports only support RRPP. 5) Cisco 10GE ports are provided by the engine itself and thus the configuration is inflexible. Our equipment can have the 1, 2×10GE or 4×10GE interface board but the board will take up one slot. 6) Supports the built-in 802.1x local server.

7) This scheme can support Netflow and NAT functions after being changed to S6506 + Salience III + TGX2 + GP20A + 3*GT48 + VSNP.

5.3.3 Configuration Scheme 3: C4507R + 2*SE V-10GE + WS-X4448-GB-SFP + 4*WS-X4448-GB-RJ
Feature: It is high-density L3 GE solution. It provides centralized forwarding and five service slots, supports RIPv1/v2, static routes and routing protocols such as OSPF, BGP and IS-IS, supports VRF and provides the 128K routing table. The engine supports two 10GE ports and four GE ports. This scheme has the built-in Netflow function but does not support NAT. The list price is $100,455. Our solution: S6506R + 2*Salience III Plus + TGX2 + GP48 + 3*GT48 + VSNP, with the list price being $95,950 Subsequently we will launch the wire speed solution: S6506R + 2*Salience III Plus + TGX2 + GP48 + 3*GT48B + VSNP (Coming soon), with the list price being $115,450. Merits: 1) Supports NAT. 2) Supports the built-in DHCP Server. 3) Supports the built-in 802.1x local server. 4) Cisco 10GE ports are provided by the engine itself and thus the configuration is inflexible. Our equipment can have the 1, 2×10GE or 4×10GE interface board but the board will take up one slot. 5) The S6506R Salience III Plus engine can achieve the packet forwarding rate of up to 432 Mpps when operating in the load sharing mode. In contrast, the packet forwarding rate of the Cisco SE V-10G is 102 Mbps only. Shortcomings: 1) The Cisco SE V-10G has the built-in Netflow function but our solution must separately use the VSNP board that takes up one slot. In addition, our solution can only provide 192 gigabit interfaces in its full configuration since the VSNP board does not provide any port. 2) Our solution must use the AR28 as the CE equipment of the MPLS network to interconnect with the MPLS network. 3) The Cisco SE V-10G can support 4K VLAN virtual interfaces while our S6500 only supports 1K VLAN virtual interfaces.
