The Cisco UBR-RFSW-ADV provides N+1 line card redundancy switching for the Cisco uBR10012 universal broadband router. The Cisco UBR-RFSW-ADV is a rack-mount unit controlled by the Cisco uBR10012 router.
The Cisco UBR-RFSW-ADV is located between the Cisco uBR10012 router and the cable plant. All the Cisco uBR10012 RF downstream (DS) and RF upstream (US) ports are connected to one side of the Cisco UBR-RFSW-ADV while the cable plant is connected to the other side.
Unlike the Cisco uBR 3x10 RF Switch, which uses Cisco RF Switch logic, and a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) control interface to communicate with the Cisco uBR10012 router or the Cisco uBR7246VXR router, the Cisco UBR-RFSW-ADV is controlled by the Cisco uBR10012 router.

Table 1 lists the other hardware components supported with the Cisco UBR-RFSW-ADV
Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets that consist of software images that support specific platforms. The feature sets available for a specific platform depend on which Cisco IOS software images are included in a release. Each feature set contains a specific set of Cisco IOS features.
Caution Cisco IOS images with strong encryption (including, but not limited to 168-bit [3DES] data encryption feature sets) are subject to U.S. government export controls and have limited distribution. Strong encryption images to be installed outside the United States are likely to require an export license. Customer orders may be denied or subject to delay because of U.S. government regulations. When applicable, the purchaser or user must obtain local import and use authorizations for all encryption strengths. Please contact your sales representative or distributor for more information, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cisco Feature Navigator is a web-based tool that enables you to determine which Cisco IOS software images support a specific set of features and which features are supported in a specific Cisco IOS image. You can search by feature or by feature set (software image). Under the release section, you can compare Cisco IOS software releases side-by-side to display both the features unique to each software release and the features that the releases have in common.
