Supported SIP Features

The Cisco 7600 SIP-200, Cisco 7600 SIP-400, and Cisco 7600 SIP-600 are high-performance, feature-rich SPA interface processors that function as carrier cards for shared port adapters (SPAs) on the Cisco 7600 series router. These SIPs are supported on the Cisco 7600 series router and Catalyst 6500 series switch, and are compatible with one or more platform-independent SPAs. For more information on SPA compatibility, see the “SIP, SSC, and SPA Compatibility” section.

The Cisco 7600 series router is an edge aggregation router, and the SIPs provide a cost-effective solution for customers seeking moderate- to high-port density and line rate services:

  • The Cisco 7600 SIP-200 provides WAN edge aggregation through lower-speed and low-density SPAs for network environments requiring regional office connectivity to headquarters, or collapsed LAN/WAN deployment.
  • The Cisco 7600 SIP-400 provides higher-speed, high-density link aggregation for network environments requiring leased line and metro aggregation.
  • The Cisco 7600 SIP-600 provides a high-speed interface for WANs and metro aggregation.

Address (IPv6 compress mode only)

Name

Number

Source and destination port

TCP flag (IPv4 only)

  • ATM CLP ( match atm clp command)—Input ATM interface

  • Frame Relay DE ( match fr-de command)—Input Frame Relay interface
  • Inner CoS ( match cos inner command)

  • Multiple matches per class map (up to 8)

Beginning in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA, the Cisco 7600 SIP-400 adds the following QoS classification feature support:

  • Ingress/Egress CoS classification with ingress policing per VLAN or EoMPLS VC

Beginning in Cisco IOS Release12.2(33)SRE support is added for:

SPA-1XOC3-CE

SPA-2XT3E3-CE

  • ATM VCI (match atm-vci command)—Input ATM PVP Interface is added to the ATM VP

Cisco 7600 SIP-400 Congestion Management

  • CBWFQ
  • Per-VC CBWFQ
  • DSCP, EXP and Precedence matching
  • LLQ or priority queueing (strict priority only)

NoteFor the 12.2(33) SRD a parent shaper or conditional policer has no effect when only LLQ traffic is flowing through a physical port. For example, if only 200 Mbps of LLQ traffic is flowing, a 100-Mbps parent shaper gives the full 200-Mbps output. However, if the ratio of LLQ to non-LLQ traffic on a subinterface is such that the LLQ rate is higher than the non-LLQ rate, the shaper output is inaccurate. (For example, on a system configured for 200 Mbps of LLQ and 500 kbps of non-LLQ, a 100-Mbps parent shaper gives 165-Mbps output. Therefore, we recommend that customers configure an explicit policer if the LLQ traffic rate might exceed the parent shape rate, which could starve regular traffic significantly.


  • Hierarchical Queuing Framework (HQF)
  • Dual-priority queuing
  • CLI to control DBUS CoS queuing
    This feature allows users to configure which DBUS CoS values are mapped to the high-priority queue in the SIP-400 switch. The hw-module slot slot queue priority switch-fpga output cos values|none command is used on the Routing Processor (RP) to configure the priority values.

SIP-200 and SIP-400 Network Clock Distribution

The Cisco 7600 series routers have a distributed clocking system with two 8 KHZ backplane reference clocks that connect to every slot in the backplane to provide an egress (Tx) timing reference for the SPAs.

Starting with Cisco IOS release 12.2(33)SRB,the SIP-200 or SIP-400 can take clock input from various clock sources and distribute the clock to other supported cards by way of the chassis backplane to allow network operators to synchronize the transmit clocks of serial interfaces to a central timing reference. Synchronization to a central timing reference can help eliminate frame slips and associated loss of data on SONET and SDH interfaces.

Both the SIP-200 and the SIP-400 can act as the source that drives the backplane reference clocks by other SIPs. When a SIP-200 or SIP-400 is the source of the clocks, the SIP uses the recovered Rx clock from any one of its SPA's input ports (see Table 4-2 for which SPAs support this functionality). The SIP either derives an 8-KHz [no space] clock that it drives onto one or both backplane signals, or provides its own Stratum 3 clock to the backplane.

Both the SIP-200 and the SIP-400 can also receive backplane clocks for use by their SPAs. When the SIP-200 and the SIP-400 receives backplane clocks, the clocks are dejittered and provided to the SPAs.

Table 4-2 shows reference clock sources. Table 4-3 shows the reference clock sources available for mapping to the backplane. Table 4-4 shows the clocks available to specific line cards.

NoteThe default clock for T3 / E3 interfaces for the SPA-1xCHSTM1/OC3 or SPA-1xCHOC12/STM4 are internal.
If you have line configuration on the T3, you must change the clock source back to line, to get the setup back to the old state after upgrade.


For additional information, see BITS Clock Support—Receive and Distribute—CEoP SPA on SIP-400.


NoteIn SONET or SDH the communication channel for conveying clock quality information is Synchronization Status Message (SSM). To select the best available synchronization source, a clock selection process is performed. Cisco 7600 SIP-200 does not support Quality Levl (QL) enabled clocking mode for the clock selection process. QL enabled clocking mode is supported only on Cisco SIP-400 and ES+ line cards.


For network clocking information for the Cisco 7600 SIP-200, see Network Clocking for the Cisco 7600/SIP 200 .
