ZTE ZXR10 8912E overview

The ZXR10 8900E series switches of ZTE Corporation are applicable to the backbone layer or convergence layer of Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). They can serve as backbone/convergence layer switches for corporation and campus networks.
The ZXR10 8900E series switches can provide gigabit, 10-gigabit, 40-gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and support Synchronous Ethernet, the IEEE 1588v2 precision time protocol, and GPS time synchronization. All the ports support full wire-speed forwarding of Layer 2 and Layer 3, which means that they satisfy the increasing requirements for bandwidth. The ZXR10 8900E series switches support multiple unicast and multicast protocols.
Services carried by data network increase rapidly with the network development. It requires higher Quality of Service (QoS) and better security for network equipment. The ZXR10 8900E series switches provide policies and resources of QoS and Access Control List (ACL), which assures the system security.
The ZXR10 8900E series switches provide the hot-swapping function for power supply modules and Main Control and Switching (MCS) modules, which means that they are applicable to large-capacity networks with high reliability.

ZTE ZXR10 8912E abstract
The ZXR10 8900E series switch is a rack-based system and has three separate planes, including forwarding, control, and monitoring planes. The three planes work together to perform system functions. The system uses a new-generation high-capacity high-speed serial bus backplane to connect main control boards to various service line cards. The primary monitoring node on each main control board manages the monitored nodes on the line cards through a monitoring bus and collects monitoring information of the line cards to implement intelligent equipment management.
The ZXR10 8912E-H/8908E-H is designed to separate the main control matrix from the switching matrix. The main control matrix supports 1:1 redundancy. To ensure necessary switching capacities for wire-speed system operation, the switching boards are configured to form a large-capacity switching matrix. The main control boards of the ZXR10 8912E-H/8908E-H are important, integrated boards that support 1:1 redundancy. Each main control board contains a high-performance CPU, a large-capacity storage, an inter-board communication and switching module, a monitoring module, and a clock module. During the operation, the main control board remains actively connected to the control switching board. The control switching board of the ZXR10 8912E-H/8908E-H contains a large-capacity switching matrix, which is designed to form multiple independent planes to ensure its switching and future expansion capabilities. A maximum number of four control switching boards can be configured.
Service Line Cards
Service line cards directly process packets and send them to specific ports on the destination service line cards. Each service line card has its own forwarding information base, and forwarding decisions are made locally, ensuring wire-speed switching capability. Service line cards are diversified, and they can support clock or monitoring features. Depending on requirements, the following types of service line cards can be provided for the time being:

•  GE service cards

•  10-GE service cards

•  40-GE service cards
