Product Migration Options

The CRS-1 fabric chassis 24-slot system (CRS-FC24=) replaces the Cisco CRS-1 fabric card chassis for a multishelf system, CRS-FCC/M1(=) and CRS-FCC/M2(=). CRS-FC24= provides identical hardware. The CRS-1 multichassis system with a 24-slot fabric chassis (CRS-MC-FC24) replaces the Cisco CRS-1 Multishelf System (CRS-1/M-F1) for a multichassis system comprising two line-card chassis plus one fabric-card chassis. Additionally, the CRS-1 multichassis system with 24-slot fabric chassis (CRS-MC-FC24) provides the flexibility to order any number of fabric chassis and line-card chassis for the multichassis system. CRS-MC-FC24 provides hardware identical to CRS-1/M-F1. The CRS-16/S Conversion Kit for Multichassis (CRS-16-MC-CONV=) replaces the Cisco CRS-1 single-shelf system to multishelf system upgrade (CRS-16-MC-UPG). CRS-16-MC-CONV= provides all the components needed to make the CRS-16/S single-chassis multichassis capable or identical to a CRS-16-LCC/M=. The CRS-16-MC-UPG provides the conversion components plus the fabric chassis (CRS-FC24=). In order to get the fabric chassis components with the CRS-16-MC-CONV=, use the CRS-1 multichassis system with 24-slot fabric chassis (CRS-MC-FC24) to order one or more fabric chassis with additional line card chassis as needed. CRS-16-MC-CONV= with CRS-MC-FC24 provides identical hardware to the CRS-16-MC-UPG.
