The innovative Cisco RF Switch works with the Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router to deliver high levels of availability, scalability, and flexibility for the rapid, reliable deployment of advanced services such as voice and virtual private networks over cable systems. The product provides superior RF performance and offers a new level of high availability for DOCSIS, EuroDOCSIS, and PacketCable applications.
The compact 3-rack-unit Cisco RF Switch is a multiplexing switch that can reroute any of the RF cables connected to active Cisco Universal Broadband Router line cards or Cisco Broadband Processing Engines to a spare set of backup cards. The RF Switch supports more than 250 coaxial connections. With the Cisco uBR10012, the RF Switch provides a fully redundant system that helps cable operators achieve PacketCable system availability, minimize service disruptions, and simplify operations.
