HI Oriana,


Both IPV6 and IPV4 are handled in hardware. There is no software-based routing in the SR series.

Subject: [alcatel-nsp] 7710 SR: limits of the routing table (hardware limits)


Dear all,


I am looking for the hardware limits of the routing table of an 7710 SR (I have an SR4). If someone 

-       Ipv4 routing table: I have in mind that it can handle 1 million routes on hardware level, is it right?

-       Ipv6 routing table: is it handled on hardware level also, or only software? Does anyone knows what is the limit of the routing table for ipv6?


Here are the details of my 7710 SR routers :

Release: 7.0.R2

CPU Control FPGA version is 0x29

Boot rom version is v29

CFMCTL FPGA version is 0x29

CCM FPGA version is 0x99


Thanks a lot.

Kind regards, Oriana Palivan
