Static Management Configuration for Cisco vs Juniper vs Huawei Comparison

Here’s the sample configuration for setting up the management port for different router platforms.
Assuming we have this IP configuration:
RSP0/RE0 Physical IP : 10.10.10.98/24
RSP1/RE1 Physical IP: 10.10.10.99/24
Virtual IP: 10.10.10.100/24
Gateway: 10.10.10.1/24

Note: It is advisable to connect the management plane connectivity to another network separate from data/voice network.
