Huawei S Series Ethernet Switches V200R003, the TOE, provides high-end networking capacities for telecom and enterprise core networks. It consists of both hardware and software.
At the core of each switch is the Versatile Routing Platform (VRP), the software for managing and running the router's networking functionality. VRP provides extensive security features. These features include different interfaces with according access levels for administrators; enforcing authentications prior to establishment of administrative sessions with the TOE; auditing of security-relevant management activities; as well as the correct enforcement of routing decisions to ensure that network traffic gets forwarded to the correct interfaces.
The Forwarding Engine is the actual hardware providing network traffic processing capacity.
