Product Overview

The Cisco®Carrier Routing System (CRS) provides outstanding economical scale, IP and optical network convergence, and a proven architecture. The Cisco CRS continues to evolve with the needs of the network, becoming more elastic and programmable. As part of an evolving and programmable network, the Cisco CRS delivers highly reliable operations and scales easily from a single-chassis to a massive multichassis system. TheCisco CRS design offers industry-leading efficiency in power consumption, cooling, and rack-space resources, while providing intelligent service-rich bandwidth capacity.

Cisco CRS forwarding processor cards provide distributed forwarding-engine capabilities and scalability, which are important for supporting the Internet of Everything. The Cisco CRS forwarding engine is responsible for data-plane processing tasks and handling all network traffic flows through the system. The forwarding processor card performs all baseline packet-routing operations, including Layer 3 forwarding, quality-of-service (QoS) classification, policing and shaping, security access control lists (ACLs), VPNs, load balancing, and Cisco NetFlow. Performance highlights of the forwarding processor cards include hardware-assisted policing and jitter- and latency-reducing multicast packet replication.

Cisco CRS forwarding processor cards include the Cisco CRS-3 140-Gbps Forwarding Processor Card (Figure 1) and the Cisco CRS-1 Series 40-Gbps Forwarding Processor Card (Figure 2).

Features and Benefits

Cisco CRS forwarding processor cards offer many advantages:

Support across multiple Cisco CRS form factors, including 8-slot, 16-slot, and multichassis

Forward and backward compatibilities; the Cisco CRS-1 (40 Gbps), CRS-3 (140 Gbps), and CRS-X (400Gbps) can coexist on the same chassis when using the Cisco CRS-X fabric

Up to 400-Gbps line-rate throughput per slot, increasing the Cisco CRS capacity to 12.8 Tbps in a single chassis

Occupies one-half slot, allowing the card to be paired with a variety of interface modules, providing deployment flexibility (Cisco CRS-FP400 and CRS-FP140 only)

Layer 3 forwarding engine with industry-leading, wire-rate performance

Built-in hardware acceleration for critical network-control traffic

Accurate hardware-assisted time-stamping support for service-level agreement (SLA) monitoring

Flexibility through Cisco AnyPort Technology, which introduces 100-Gbps to 40-Gbps and 40-Gbps to 10‑Gbps breakout options (Cisco CRS-FP400

Energy monitor functionality that allows real-time power monitoring of each individual component, including physical layer interface modules (PLIMs) and line cards, fabric, PRP through CLI, beginning with IOS XR Release 5.1.1 (Cisco CRS-FP400)
