The HP HSR6600 Router Series is made up of high-performance services WAN routers that are ideal for small- to medium-sized campus WAN edge and aggregation, as well as high-end branch deployments.

These routers are built with a compact multi-core centralized processing architecture that delivers, in a 2 RU form factor, robust routing, security, full Layer 2 switching, and modular WAN and LAN interface options, all integrated in a single fast and powerful routing platform.

In addition, these routers feature robust carrier-class reliability capabilities to reduce disruption from network or system failures.

Key Features

  • High-performance WAN routing
  • Compact, multi-core centralized processing architecture
  • Comprehensive routing, switching, and security
  • Modular WAN and LAN connectivity options
  • Robust high availability and resiliency

Features & Benefits:


  • Multiple WAN interfaces - support Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet/10GbE ports, OC3~OC48 POS/CPOS, and ATM ports
  • Flexible port selection - provides a combination of fiber/copper interface modules, 100/1000BASE-X auto-speed selection, and 10/100/1000BASE-T auto-speed detection plus auto duplex and MDI/MDI-X; is speed adaptable between 155 M POS/622 M POS/Gigabit Ethernet
  • Loopback - supports internal loopback testing for maintenance purposes and an increase in availability; loopback detection protects against incorrect cabling or network configurations and can be enabled on a per-port or per-VLAN basis for added flexibility


  • High-performance platform - provides up to 15 Mpps forwarding performance

Resiliency and high availability

  • Separate data and control planes - provide greater flexibility and enable continual services
  • Hot-swappable modules - Facilitates the replacement of hardware interface modules without impacting the traffic flow through the system.
  • Optional redundant power supply - provides uninterrupted power; allows hot-swapping of one of the two supplies when installed
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) - Allows groups of two routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available routed environments.
  • Graceful restart - features are fully supported, including graceful restart for OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, LDP, and RSVP; the network remains stable during the active-standby switchover; after the switchover, the device quickly learns the network routes by communicating with adjacent routers; forwarding remains uninterrupted during the switchover to achieve nonstop forwarding (NSF)
  • Hitless software upgrades - Allow patches to be installed without restarting the device, increasing network uptime and simplifying maintenance.
  • IP Fast Reroute Framework (FRR) - nodes are configured with backup ports and routes; local implementation requires no cooperation of adjacent devices, simplifying the deployment; solves the traditional convergence faults in IP forwarding; realizes restoration within 50 ms, with the restoration time independent of the number of routes and fast link switchovers without route convergence

Product architecture

  • Multi-core CPU - delivers multi-thread processing, with eight cores and 32 hardware threads
  • Distributed processing - two kinds of engines are hardware separated: main controller engine (routing engine) and service engines (Flexible Interface Platform [FIP]); the main controller engine is used for route computing and system management, and service engines are used for processing services

Layer 3 routing

  • Static IPv4 routing - Provides simple manually configured IPv4 routing.
  • Routing Information Protocol (RIP) - Uses a distance vector algorithm with UDP packets for route determination; supports RIPv1 and RIPv2 routing; includes loop protection.
  • Open shortest path first (OSPF) - Delivers faster convergence; uses this link-state routing Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), which supports ECMP, NSSA, and MD5 authentication for increased security and graceful restart for faster failure recovery.
  • Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP-4) - Delivers an implementation of the Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) utilizing path vectors; uses TCP for enhanced reliability for the route discovery process; reduces bandwidth consumption by advertising only incremental updates; supports extensive policies for increased flexibility; scales to very large networks.
  • Intermediate system to intermediate system (IS-IS) - Uses a path vector Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), which is defined by the ISO organization for IS-IS routing and extended by IETF RFC 1195 to operate in both TCP/IP and the OSI reference model (Integrated IS-IS).
  • Static IPv6 routing - Provides simple manually configured IPv6 routing.
  • Dual IP stack - Maintains separate stacks for IPv4 and IPv6 to ease the transition from an IPv4-only network to an IPv6-only network design.
  • Routing Information Protocol next generation (RIPng) - Extends RIPv2 to support IPv6 addressing.
  • OSPFv3 - Provides OSPF support for IPv6.
  • BGP+ - Extends BGP-4 to support Multiprotocol BGP (MBGP), including support for IPv6 addressing.
  • IS-IS for IPv6 - Extends IS-IS to support IPv6 addressing.
  • IPv6 tunneling - Allows IPv6 packets to traverse IPv4-only networks by encapsulating the IPv6 packet into a standard IPv4 packet; supports manually configured, 6 to 4, and Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) tunnels; is an important element for the transition from IPv4 to IPv6.
  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) - Uses BGP to advertise routes across Label Switched Paths (LSPs), but uses simple labels to forward packets from any Layer 2 or Layer 3 protocol, which reduces complexity and increases performance; supports graceful restart for reduced failure impact; supports LSP tunneling and multilevel stacks.
  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Layer 3 VPN - Allows Layer 3 VPNs across a provider network; uses MP-BGP to establish private routes for increased security; supports RFC 2547bis multiple autonomous system VPNs for added flexibility.
  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Layer 2 VPN - Establishes simple Layer 2 point-to-point VPNs across a provider network using only MPLS Label Distribution Protocol (LDP); requires no routing and therefore decreases complexity, increases performance, and allows VPNs of non-routable protocols; uses no routing information for increased security; supports Circuit Cross Connect (CCC), Static Virtual Circuits (SVCs), Martini draft, and Kompella-draft technologies.
  • Policy routing - Allows custom filters for increased performance and security; supports ACLs, IP prefix, AS paths, community lists, and aggregate policies.
  • Multicast VPN - Supports Multicast Domain (MD) multicast VPN, which can be distributed on separate service cards, providing high performance and flexible configuration.
  • Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) - Establishes point-to-multipoint Layer 2 VPNs across a provider network.
  • Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) - Enables link connectivity monitoring and reduces network convergence time for RIP, OSPF, BGP, IS-IS, VRRP, MPLS, and IRF.
  • IGMPv1, v2, and v3 - Allow individual hosts to be registered on a particular VLAN.
  • PIM-SSM, PIM-DM, and PIM-SM (for IPv4 and IPv6) - Support IP Multicast address management and inhibition of DoS attacks.
  • Equal/Unequal Cost Multipath (ECMP/UCMP) - Enables multiple equal-cost and unequal-cost links in a routing environment to increase link redundancy and scale bandwidth.
  • OSPFv3 MCE - Multi-VPN-Instance CE (MCE) binds different VPNs to different interfaces on one single CE; the OSPFv3 MCE feature creates and maintains separate OSPFv3 routing tables for each IPv6 VPN to isolate VPN services in the device.

Layer 3 services

  • Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) - Determines the MAC address of another IP host in the same subnet; supports static ARPs; gratuitous ARP allows detection of duplicate IP addresses; proxy ARP allows normal ARP operation between subnets or when subnets are separated by a Layer 2 network.
  • User Datagram Protocol (UDP) helper - Redirects UDP broadcasts to specific IP subnets to prevent server spoofing.
  • Domain Name System (DNS) - Provides a distributed database that translates domain names and IP addresses, which simplifies network design; supports client and server.
  • Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) - Simplifies the management of large IP networks.


  • Dynamic Virtual Private Network (DVPN) - Collects, maintains, and distributes dynamic public addresses through the VPN Address Management (VAM) protocol, making VPN establishment available between enterprise branches that use dynamic addresses to access the public network; compared to traditional VPN technologies, DVPN technology is more flexible and has richer features, such as NAT traversal of DVPN packets, AAA identity authentication, IPSec protection of data packets, and multiple VPN domains.
  • Group Domain Virtual Private Network (GDVPN) - A tunnel-less VPN technology that allows for native end-to-end security for a full meshed network; suitable for an enterprise running encryption over a private Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)/IP-based core network, as well as to encrypt multicast traffic.
  • Stateful VPN firewall - provides enhanced stateful packet inspection and filtering; supports flexible security zones and virtual firewall containment; provides advanced VPN services with Triple DES (3DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption at high performance and low latency, Web content filtering, and application prioritization and enhancement
  • Access control list (ACL) - Supports powerful ACLs for both IPv4 and IPv6; ACLs are used for filtering traffic to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the network, or for controlling network traffic to save resources; rules can either deny or permit traffic to be forwarded; rules can be based on a Layer 2 header or a Layer 3 protocol header; rules can be set to operate on specific dates or times.
  • Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding (URPF) - Allows normal packets to be forwarded correctly, but discards the attaching packet due to lack of reverse path route or incorrect inbound interface; prevents source spoofing and distributed attacks; supports distributed URPF.
  • Secure Shell (SSHv2) - Uses external servers to securely log in to a remote device; with authentication and encryption, it protects against IP spoofing and plain-text password interception; increases the security of Secure FTP (SFTP) transfers.
  • Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) - Eases switch security access administration by using a password authentication server.
  • Terminal Access Controller Access-Control System (TACACS+) - Delivers an authentication tool using TCP with encryption of the full authentication request, providing additional security.
  • Network address translation (NAT) - Supports repeated multiplexing of a port and automatic 5-tuple collision detection, enabling NAPT to support unlimited connections; supports blacklist in NAT/NAPT/internal server, a limit on the number of connections, session log, and multi-instance.

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • HQoS/Nested QoS - Allows for precise and flexible traffic classification and scheduling.
  • Traffic policing - Supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate.
  • Congestion management - Supports FIFO, PQ, CQ, WFQ, CBQ, and RTPQ
  • Weighted random early detection (WRED)/random early detection (RED) - Delivers congestion avoidance capabilities through the use of queue management algorithms
  • Other QoS technologies - Support traffic shaping, FR QoS, MPLS QoS, and MP QoS/LFI


  • Industry-standard CLI with a hierarchical structure - Reduces training time and expenses, and increases productivity in multivendor installations.
  • SNMPv1, v2, and v3 - Provide complete support of SNMP; provide full support of industry-standard Management Information Base (MIB) plus private extensions; SNMPv3 supports increased security using encryption.
  • Management interface control - Enables or disables each of the following interfaces depending on security preferences: console port, Telnet port, or reset button.
  • Remote monitoring (RMON) - Uses standard SNMP to monitor essential network functions; supports events, alarm, history, and statistics group plus a private alarm extension group.
  • Management security - Restricts access to critical configuration commands; offers multiple privilege levels with password protection; ACLs provide Telnet and SNMP access; local and remote syslog capabilities allow logging of all access.
  • FTP, TFTP, and SFTP support - Offers different mechanisms for configuration updates; FTP allows bidirectional transfers over a TCP/IP network; trivial FTP (TFTP) is a simpler method using User Datagram Protocol (UDP); Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) runs over an SSH tunnel to provide additional security.
  • Debug and sampler utility - Supports ping and traceroute for both IPv4 and IPv6.
  • Network Quality Analyzer (NQA) - Analyzes network performance and service quality by sending test packets, and provides network performance and service quality parameters such as jitter, TCP, or FTP connection delays and file transfer rates; allows a network manager to determine overall network performance and to diagnose and locate network congestion points or failures.
  • Network Time Protocol (NTP) - Synchronizes timekeeping among distributed time servers and clients; keeps timekeeping consistent among all clock-dependent devices within the network so that the devices can provide diverse applications based on the consistent time.
  • Information center - Provides a central repository for system and network information; aggregates all logs, traps, and debugging information generated by the system and maintains them in order of severity; outputs the network information to multiple channels based on user-defined rules.

Multicast support

  • Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) - Utilizes Any-Source Multicast (ASM) or Source-Specific Multicast (SSM) to manage IPv4 multicast networks; supports IGMPv1, v2, and v3.
  • Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) - Defines modes of Internet IPv4 and IPv6 multicasting to allow one-to-many and many-to-many transmission of information; PIM Dense Mode (DM), Sparse Mode (SM), and Source-Specific Mode (SSM) are supported.
  • Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) - Allows multiple PIM-SM domains to interoperate; is used for inter-domain multicast applications.
  • Multicast Border Gateway Protocol (MBGP) - Allows multicast traffic to be forwarded across BGP networks separately from unicast traffic.

Additional information

  • Unified HP Comware operating system with modular architecture - Provides an easy-to-enhance-and-extend feature set, which doesn’t require whole-scale changes; all switching, routing, and security platforms leverage the Comware OS, a common unified modular operating system.
