High Performance Packet Forwarding
The packet forwarding is performed using advanced hardware acceleration mechanisms, allowing the service provider to use DM2500 products in the most demanding applications combining complex routing protocols and advanced remote management capabilities to deliver value-added services.
The products offer a robust Command Line Interface (CLI) with interactive help which is accessible through SSHv2, Telnet or locally through RS-232 console port. DM2500 is also managed and monitored by DmView or other third party management systems through SNMP v2c or v3.
Rollback and commit operations, Remote Syslog, NTP, DHCP and TACACS are available to ease the configuration, management and remote troubleshooting of the devices.
Besides high-speed packet forwarding and static routing the product is capable of establishing dynamic routing sessions with remote nodes using RIP, OSPF or BGP protocols. Authentication, prefix lists and route maps are also supported. Comprehensive table sizes are offered to fit typical access scenarios.
DM2500 products implement VLAN tags and GRE tunnels, allowing the service provider to establish traffic isolation and make intelligent use of existing network infrastructure.
Network Address Translation mechanism in several modes is fully supported to allow a clear separation between public and private networks, also saving IP resources.
Access Control Lists configuration allows the service provider to permit or deny specific traffic patterns based on source/destination addresses, protocol type, ports and so on.
DM2500 offers flexible QoS mechanisms which implement traffic limiters and shapers as well as classification and assignment to queues. QoS features enforce the proper prioritization and differentiation of data, video and voice traffic.
