Title: Ruijie Networks Virtual Switching Unit (VSU) Technology
 Stacking Convergence Performance Evaluation versus H3C Technologies

Publication date:   01 November 2013
Document number:    213144


Nowadays, enterprise network availability is critical to business operations. For example, communications, transaction, and office automation systems all rely on the IP network infrastructure. In order to guarantee business operation, a stable and reliable IP Infrastructure is essential to the enterprise. The latest Virtual Switching Unit (VSU) stacking technology from Ruijie Networks can not only simplify network design but, more importantly, can also significantly improve network convergence time.

Ruijie Networks Co., Ltd. commissioned Tolly to evaluate the failover performance of their VSU technology, which can virtualize multiple switches into one centrally managed switch, versus H3C’s Intelligent Resilient Framework 2 (IRF2) technology. Four different failover tests were conducted in two-member stack configurations. Tolly engineers found that Ruijie’s VSU demonstrates faster convergence time, especially in a ring to chain topology, when a stacking cable fails. In all three test runs, the convergence time was less than 1.14ms, which is about 1% of H3C’s convergence time in that same scenario.
