Networking and application

SD-WAN using hybrid links

In the SD-WAN Solution, the AR6200 functions as the hub of medium- to large-sized enterprises or gateway of large branches and supports hybrid access using multiple physical links, such as MPLS private lines, Internet links, and LTE links. The solution also leverages Huawei’s next-generation controller, the Agile Controller, which implements centralized and visualized management. The AR6200 provides extensive SD-WAN features and delivers optimal service experience for enterprises through intelligent application identification, intelligent traffic steering, and intelligent acceleration.

SD-WAN networking


Building different types of VPNs by leveraging Internet resources

The AR6200 provides various secure access functions for communication between enterprise branches and between branches and headquarters. These functions also allow an enterprise’s partners to access its resources. Secure tunnels such as GRE VPN, IPSec VPN, DSVPN, L2TP VPN, and EVPN tunnels can be set up between the headquarters and branches for secure data access and transmission. The AR6200 supports quick tunnel deployment and authentication for branches. Furthermore, partners authenticated and authorized by the AR6200 can remotely access the enterprise resources over these tunnels.

The AR6200 supports a wide selection of cards and meets the extended service security requirements. Data encryption and decryption is hardware-based, greatly improving data encryption and decryption performance and providing E2E security assurance for customers.

VPN networking


High-quality converged voice services

a. IP PBX application scenario

The AR6200 routers have a built-in PBX, which supports the enterprise main number, IVR, and bill query functions to enhance the corporate image and improve enterprise communication efficiency. In addition, the AR6200 is deployed at the enterprise egress and supports intelligent routing and dialing. With these functions, it can intelligently select egress links based on the destination number range, reducing enterprises' inter-branch call expenditure.

b. SIP gateway application scenario

The AR6200 integrates voice, fax, and IP services. When providing voice services for enterprise users, the AR6200 functions as a SIP access gateway for a branch to transform phone signals into VoIP signals. The AR6200 uplink interfaces are connected to the IMS/NGN network to allow the phones, handsets, and computers to communicate at any time.
