IPSec support by AR series routers

Huawei AR series routers support IPSec. Among which, the AR502EG-L, AR502EGW-L, and AR550C-2C6GE do not support Efficient VPN.
To support the IPSec protocol standard regulated by the State Cryptography Administration, the AR must have a Network Data Encryption (NDE) card or high-performance Network Data Encryption card installed in a SIC slot. Efficient VPN does not support the IPSec protocol standard regulated by the State Cryptography Administration.
The AR510 does not support the IPSec tunnel that is established using an ACL or a virtual tunnel interface. It supports only the IPSec tunnel that is established using Efficient VPN and can only be used as a remote device.
Efficient VPN function requires a license. To use the Efficient VPN function, apply for and purchase the following license from the Huawei local office:
