DATA SHEET

Service providers face the challenge of scaling their public and private packet infrastructure control planes to meet the ever-growing demands of global IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) connectivity and service availability. The Cisco Performance Route Processor-1 is the next generation route processor for the Cisco 12000 Series. It delivers state-of-the-art technology to address the unique route processing requirements of carrier-grade IP and MPLS packet infrastructures.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Cisco 12000 Series is the premier Internet routing platform for service provider backbone and high-speed edge applications. It features a unique modular, fully distributed system architecture. The Cisco Performance Route Processor (PRP-1) (Figure 1) is the main system processor for the Cisco 12000 Series Router, providing the following essential functions:
· Executes routing protocol stacks
· Performs all protocol communication with other routers
· Builds and distributes forwarding information to all line cards
· Uploads Cisco IOS ® system images to all installed line cards at power up
· Provides out-of-band system console and auxiliary ports, two10/100 Ethernet ports for router configuration, and maintenance
· Monitors and manages power and temperature of system components such as line cards, power supplies, and fans

APPLICATIONS

Cisco 12000 Series High Availability

The Cisco 12000 Series delivers comprehensive solutions that enable service providers to deliver high service availability. When two Cisco PRP-1s are installed as shown in Figure 2, Cisco Nonstop Forwarding (NSF) and Stateful Switchover (SSO) provide full and automatic recovery from catastrophic route processor failures without impacting in-service traffic, enabling service providers to raise network availability for Cisco 12000 Series-based infrastructures to 99.999%. Service providers can seize new revenue opportunities by offering high service availability that customers demand for mission-critical applications.

Scaling the Cisco 12000 Series to Support the Largest Network Infrastructures

The Cisco PRP-1 has the memory capacity to support more than 1 million routes, providing extensive headroom to address the largest public and private applications well into the future. The Cisco PRP-1, with its advanced Power PC processor, has the performance to support the fastest route convergence necessary for gigabit and terabit routing applications. The Cisco PRP-1 calculates and updates the routing table and all other control plane activities, including:
· Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routing updates
· Layer 2 "keepalives"
· OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP calculations
· Automatic Protection Switching/Multiplex Section Protection (Packet over SONET [POS] line cards)
· High availability features such as Hot Standby Router Protocol/Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (HSRP/VRRP), Route Processor Redundancy Plus, Cisco NSF, and Cisco SSO

KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

The Cisco PRP-1 is the default route processor in Cisco's 12000 family of routers
· Establishing a new benchmark in IP routing convergence for gigabit and terabit routing applications.
· Supporting more than 1 million routes, providing extensive headroom to address the largest public and private applications of today and tomorrow.
· An enhanced switch fabric interface greatly increasing the rate at which BGP and Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) updates are transmitted to neighboring routers.
· The industry's most complete high availability feature set ensures maximum service availability:

– Cisco NSF

– Cisco SSO

– Redundant Route Processor Plus

– HSRP/VRRP

– Non-service impacting online insertion and removal (OIR)

– MPLS-Fast reroute (MPLS-FRR)

– Dynamic Packet Transport-Intelligent Protection Switching (DPT-IPS)

– Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) Automatic Protection Switching (APS)

– Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) Multiplex Section Protection (MSP)

The Cisco 12000 Series Router is part of Cisco's family of multimillion packets-per-second (pps) IP and MPLS routing platforms for building profitable networks in today's communications economy. The Cisco 12000 Series is the premier high-end routing platform for service provider backbone and edge applications, enabling service providers to meet the challenge of building packet networks to satisfy services demand while increasing profitability. The Cisco 12000 Series offers the only portfolio of 10 Gbps per slot systems and interfaces (including POS, Dynamic Packet Transport/Resilient Packet Ring [DPT/RPR], and Gigabit Ethernet [GbE]), delivering 10G economies of scale anywhere in the network.
The Cisco 12000 Series provides the highest reliability, the richest set of service enablers, the lowest total cost of ownership, and the only proven investment protection, including systems that can be upgraded in the field to increase switching capacity. This innovative combination of features and capabilities enables service providers to build the most competitive IP and MPLS networks.
