Introduction

The Cisco MC3810 multiservice access concentrator is fully supported by Cisco IOS software for multiprotocol routing, bridging, and Systems Network Architecture (SNA). As part of an enterprise backbone or as a CPE device to serve provider-managed network services, the Cisco MC3810 reduces operating costs and complexity, and increases network throughput and performance.

The Cisco MC3810 provides a complete file system for software images, message files, and reports. The standard Flash memory size is 8 MB. A 16-MB upgrade option is available. The 16-MB version can hold two code images simultaneously for fail-safe upgrades.

Management and configuration of the Cisco MC3810 should be familiar to the Cisco IOS user and compatible with existing management systems. As such, it provides a superset of the Cisco command-line interface (CLI). The Cisco MC3810 can be managed by standard Cisco management platforms and facilities such as CiscoView and the native remote login facilities provided by Telnet and rlogin. Three types of configuration interfaces are provided as follows:

Cisco CLI

HTTP-based configuration server

SNMP-based MIB

The HTTP-based interface allows configuration from any web browser such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Explorer. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) MIB allows management of the Cisco MC3810 from SNMP managers (for example, HP OpenView).

For information on new features and Cisco IOS commands supported by Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1, see the "New and Changed Information" section and the "Related Documentation" section.

Supported Hardware

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1 supports the Cisco MC3810 multiservice access concentrator. The Cisco MC3810 base chassis is a semifixed configuration router that can be customized for a specific application at the factory or in the field by a qualified technician. The base chassis includes the following components:

One fixed Ethernet LAN port

A console port and an auxiliary port

Two synchronous serial ports

Five mounting areas for functional modules that support additional capabilities

AC, DC, or redundant power supply option

Cisco MC3810 series concentrators are supplied in various standard hardware configurations. These concentrators are equipped with different sets of functional modules to provide specific functional capability. Many configurations are possible, but they are all variations of the basic categories described in Table 2. Supported hardware is shown in Table 3. The chassis opening for any mounting area that is not equipped with a functional module is closed off with a removable cover plate.

For detailed descriptions of the new hardware features, see the "New and Changed Information" section.

Determining the Software Version

To determine the version of Cisco IOS software running on your Cisco 3810, log in to the Cisco 3810 and enter the show version EXEC command:

Router> show version
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) 12.2 XG Software mc3810-a2isv5-mz, Version 12.2(2) XG1, RELEASE SOFTWARE

Upgrading to a New Software Release

For general information about upgrading to a new software release, refer to Upgrading the Cisco IOS Software Release in Cisco Routers and Modems located at:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/130/upgrade_index.shtml

Feature Set Tables

The Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets consisting of software images—depending on the platform. Each feature set contains a specific set of Cisco IOS features.

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1 supports the same feature sets as Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, but Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1 can include new features supported by the Cisco 3810.


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/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 export@cisco.com.

Table 4 lists the features and feature sets supported by the Cisco 3810 in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1 and uses the following conventions:

Yes—The feature is supported in the software image.

No—The feature is not supported in the software image.

In—The number in the "In" column indicates the Cisco IOS release in which the feature was introduced. For example, (2)XG means a feature was introduced in 12.2(2) XG1.


Note You can find the most current Cisco IOS documentation on Cisco.com. If you have a Cisco.com login account, you can find image and release information regarding features prior to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) T by using the Feature Navigator tool at http://www.cisco.com/go/fn.

New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new hardware and software features supported by the Cisco 3810 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1.

New Hardware and Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG1

There are no new hardware and software features supported by the Cisco 3810 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG

There are no new hardware feature supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG

The following new software feature is supported by the Cisco 3810 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(2) XG:

Survivable Remote Site Telephony

The SRS Telephony feature enables the router to provide call handling support for the Cisco IP phones when the Cisco IP phones lose connection to the remote primary, secondary, or tertiary Cisco CallManager or when the WAN connection is down.

The Cisco CallManager 3.0 supports Cisco IP phones at remote sites attached to Cisco branch office multiservice routers across the WAN. Prior to the SRS Telephony feature, when the WAN connection between the remote branch office router and the Cisco CallManager failed or connectivity with the Cisco CallManager was lost for some reason, the Cisco IP phones at the branch office became unusable for the duration of the failure. The SRS Telephony feature overcomes this problem and enables the basic features of the Cisco IP phones by providing call-handling support on the branch office router for its attached Cisco IP phones. The system automatically detects the failure and uses the Simple Network Auto Provisioning (SNAP) technology to autoconfigure the branch office router to provide call processing for the local Cisco IP phones. The business at the remote site can continue to make and receive calls during the failure. When the WAN link or connection to the primary Cisco CallManager is restored, call-handling capabilities for the Cisco IP phones switch back to the primary Cisco CallManager. During a failure when SRS Telephony feature is enabled, the Cisco IP phone displays a message to inform you that the Cisco IP phones are in the Cisco CallManager fallback mode and are able to perform limited functions.
