Advantages of the VRP8 Architecture
The VRP8 architecture has the following advantages:
- The VRP8 has a layered architecture with clear inter-layer dependency
and interfaces and independent intra-layer components.
- The base framework uses the model-driven architecture technology,
with stable processing mechanisms and flexible separated service models,
to rapidly respond to customers' requirements for software features.
- Based on the standard driver framework, hardware drivers support
plug-and-play, implementing backward compatibility of interface boards.
Benefits: flexible service operation, timely
response to customers' requirements, and smooth hardware upgrades
- Process-based fault isolation is implemented.
- Process-based NSx helps implement seamless convergence on the
forwarding plane, control plane, and service plane.
Benefits: non-stop service operation with high reliability
and reduced operation and maintenance expenditures
- Services are distributed in fine granularity and processed at
the same time, achieving industry-leading performance and specification
- Performance and specifications are expandable and can be improved
along with hardware upgrades.
- Priority-based real-time scheduling guarantees that services are
Benefits: larger-scaled service deployment and faster fault
convergence, full use of hardware capabilities, and continuous improvement
in performance and specifications
Carrier-class management and maintenance
- The carrier-class configuration and management plane facilitates
service deployment and maintenance.
- The VRP8 provides better fault management mechanisms.
- The VRP8 provides plug-and-play network device management.
Benefits: more effective service deployment capabilities,
faster service monitoring and fault locating, and lower operation
and maintenance expenditures
