H3C CR16000 Series Router
H3C CR16000-F Core Routers (hereinafter referred to as the CR16000-F routers) as the high-end router, focusing on Carriers Backbone/MAN and Large-Scale Industry Core Network, providing high forwarding performance, high-density ports, and rich port types. CR16000-F routers adopt CLOS architecture and distributed forwarding structure, delivering more high-availability and scalable network. Comware V7 operating system enables the CR16000-F more compatibility, which integrating Security Blade, Open Application Platform Module, making it an ideal choice for customers.
The CR16000-F routers includes the following models: CR16006-F, CR16010-F, CR16010H-F and CR16018-F to covering all network layers, providing 4/8/8/16 service slots.
Innovative virtualization technology IRF on WANs
Traditional WANs uses links and devices in 1+1 redundancy for availability, which enhances network reliability but results in low link and device utilization and increased management and maintenance complexity. To meet the virtualization requirements for the future cloud computing network, H3C deploys the IRF technology on WAN devices. The IRF technology virtualizes multiple physical devices into an IRF fabric, greatly reducing network management and maintenance costs, increasing link bandwidth and device utilization. With the IRF technology, the CR16000-F routers provide the following benefits:
Uses the multi-chassis link aggregation technology to implement load balancing and backup for multiple uplinks. This improves network reliability and increases link resources efficiency.
Virtualizes multiple CR16000-F routers into an IRF fabric to provide unified control plane and forwarding plane. This simplifies network topology, improves management efficiency, and reduces maintenance costs.
Uses the H3C-proprietary routing stateful failover technology to perform real-time data backup on the control plane and data plane in the entire virtualization architecture. This avoids service interruption caused by a single point of failure.
Traditional service routers provide telecommunications services such as mobile, business, and IPTV services. BRAS devices act as access gateways to broadband network applications, and implement user authentication and management. The CR16000-F combines the service router and BRAS functions to improve the device usage and reduces costs.
Intelligent target accounting (iTA)—Differentiates service types based on the destination addresses and provides accounting, bandwidth control, and QoS as per the service types.
Provides unified access authentication for large numbers of wired and wireless users and meets requirements of wireless terminals for mobility and once-for-all authentication.
BRAS IRF stateful failover—Avoid service interruption caused by a single point of failure and simplifies management and maintenance.
The CR16000-F router control plane uses the multi-core and SMP technologies, and runs the Comware V7 platform. Each software module operates with an independent address space, and supports dynamic loading and separate upgrading.
The Comware V7 platform supports distributed computing. Global services, such as MPLS and BGP, can be assigned to the specified MPU CPU system. The distribution of global services to different MPU CPU systems reduces CPU load and enhances system performance. Distributed computing also allows the system to divide a global service into sub-services and distribute the sub-services on different CPU systems.
The CR16000-F router uses Open Application Architecture (OAA) and provides Open Application Platform (OAP) modules to meet service customization and upgrade needs. For example, firewall modules, intrusion prevention system (IPS) modules, and LB modules provide seamless integration of core routers and service systems.

The CR16000-F router supports intelligent target accounting (iTA). iTA differentiates service types based on the destination addresses and provides accounting, bandwidth control, and QoS as per the service types. You can deploy the CR16000-F routers on campus networks to implement different rate and accounting policies for accesses to the campus network, Cernet, and Internet.
With BRAS, the CR16000-F router can provide unified access authentication for large numbers of wired and wireless users and meet requirements of wireless terminals for mobility and once-for-all authentication and rate. BRAS IRF stateful failover reduces the impact of single device failures on the network and simplifies management and maintenance.
Traditional WANs use the shortest paths calculated based on routing protocols to forward traffic and do not switch traffic to other paths even if congestion occurs on a path. This does not have much influence when the network traffic is small. However, with the wide use of the Internet, the shortcomings of this solution become more obvious.
The WAN SDN solution dynamically acquires real-time link quality status, such as link efficiency, delay, and jitter. The DPI technology integrated on the CR16000-F router reports the service types in real time. WAN APP dynamically selects the optimal end-to-end path for the specified applications and delivers the policies to the router through the Netconf or OpenFlow interface. The SDN solution can reduce network management cost, improve network resources efficiency, dynamically adjust resources at network congestion or jitter occurrence, and provide value-added services and additional services.
