During NSS Labs’ 2016 Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Prevention Solutions Group Test, the Huawei AntiDDoS8030 V500R001C00SPC600 negatively impacted the baseline traffic. This was caused by internal VLAN tags leaking to the external interface, which resulted in unexpected performance issues, and consequently had a negative effect on the Huawei AntiDDoS8030’s placement on NSS’ 2016 DDoS Security Value Map™. After the group test concluded, and at the request of Huawei, NSS conducted a follow-on test with Huawei’s V500R001C00SPC500 software, which resolved the VLAN tags issues.
