Hardware Planning for ATM Traffic Management

This section provides an overview of the hardware guidelines for the Cisco 7200 series routers and an introduction to the ATM port adapters supported on the Cisco 7200 series routers.

This section includes the following topics:

Hardware Installation Guidelines on the Cisco 7200 Series Router

ATM Port Adapter Support on the Cisco 7200 Series Router

Hardware Installation Guidelines on the Cisco 7200 Series Router

There are specific hardware installation and memory guidelines that you should observe to achieve the optimal operating results for your Cisco 7200 series router.

Cisco 7200 series routers have a finite data-carrying capacity, referred to as bandwidth, that affects the port adapter distribution in the chassis, as well as the number and types of port adapters that you can install. The Cisco 7200 series routers use a concept called bandwidth points, which allow you to determine whether your port adapter and I/O controller configuration can be supported by your network processing engine (NPE) or network services engine (NSE) and memory configuration. Each port adapter and I/O controller is associated with a certain bandwidth point value, and the sum of all of these bandwidth points must not exceed allowable limits.

You should meet the following objectives during your hardware configuration:

Find the total number of bandwidth points for each PCI bus by adding the bandwidth points for the port adapters and I/O controllers that correspond to that particular PCI bus.

Be certain not to exceed the allowable number of total bandwidth points for each PCI bus (the allowable total varies by your NPE or NSE).

Distribute the bandwidth evenly between the buses.

Refer to the Cisco 7200 Series Port Adapter Hardware Configuration Guidelines document for these important hardware configuration, memory, and operating guidelines.

ATM Port Adapter Support on the Cisco 7200 Series Router

The physical interfaces that support ATM on a Cisco 7200 series router are referred to as ATM port adapters (PAs). This section provides a brief introduction to the ATM port adapters that are supported on the Cisco 7200 series router, and includes the following topics:

PA-A1 ATM Port Adapter (OC-3)

PA-A2 ATM CES Port Adapter (T3, E3 , OC-3, and 4 CBR ports [T1 or E1])

PA-A3 Enhanced ATM Port Adapter (T3, E3, OC-3, and T1/E1 Inverse Multiplexing Over ATM [IMA])

PA-A6 Enhanced ATM Port Adapter Plus (T3, E3, and OC-3)

ATM Port Adapter Summary

For a list of documents that contain important details about the ATM port adapters and their installation, see the "Related Documentation" section.


Note Not all models of ATM port adapters are supported on the Cisco 7200 series router. For example, the PA-A3 OC-12 ATM port adapter is only available initially on the Cisco 7500 series routers.


PA-A1 ATM Port Adapter (OC-3)

The PA-A1 ATM port adapter is the original Cisco Systems ATM port adapter. It is designed for use as a local-area network (LAN) campus uplink supporting LAN Emulation (LANE).

The PA-A1 does not support traffic shaping. The peak cell rate (PCR) of all virtual circuits (VCs) is the line rate, which is 155 Mbps for the OC-3 (optical carrier) interface.

Therefore, the PA-A1 supports the unspecified bit rate (UBR) service class only. You cannot configure other ATM service classes such as non-real-time variable bit rate (nrt-VBR) or available bit rate (ABR) on permanent virtual circuits (PVCs) on the PA-A1 ATM port adapter. The UBR service class provides a high degree of multiplexing or bandwidth sharing, but does not provide any bounds on cell delay or cell loss.

PA-A2 ATM CES Port Adapter (T3, E3 , OC-3, and 4 CBR ports [T1 or E1])

The target application of the PA-A2 ATM CES port adapter is access to a broadband public or private ATM network where multiservice consolidation of voice, video, and data traffic over a single ATM link is a requirement.

The PA-A2 ATM CES port adapter is a dual-wide module. It has four T1 (1.544 Mbps) or four E1 (2.048 Mbps) 120-ohm constant bit rate (CBR) ports that can support both structured (N x 64 Kbps) and unstructured ATM Forum-compliant circuit emulation services (CES), and a single port of an OC-3 (155 Mbps) single-mode intermediate reach or a T3 (45 Mbps) or E3 (34 Mbps) standards-based ATM interface.

The PA-A2 ATM CES port adapter can be used only on a Cisco 7200 series router or a Cisco uBR7200 series router that has at least a 150-MHz network processing engine (NPE-150).

PA-A3 Enhanced ATM Port Adapter (T3, E3, OC-3, and T1/E1 Inverse Multiplexing Over ATM [IMA])

Cisco Systems introduced the enhanced PA-A3 ATM port adapter for WAN links that require native, hardware-based ATM traffic shaping to control bandwidth on the VCs. When connecting an ATM router interface to a switch network that requires traffic shaping, we recommend using the PA-A3 or the PA-A6 ATM port adapter.

The PA-A3 ATM port adapters are single-port, single- and dual-wide port adapters for the Cisco 7200, Cisco 7500, and Cisco 7600 OSR series routers using the FlexWAN module for the Catalyst 6000 family of switches. The ATM PA-A3 is designed with a high-performance, dual segmentation and reassembly (SAR) architecture with local buffer memory.

The PA-A3 ATM port adapter supports advanced ATM hardware features, such as per-VC and per-virtual path (VP) traffic shaping, and up to 4096 VCs. It supports most ATM service classes including ABR, CBR, nrt-VBR, rt-VBR, UBR and UBR+ (for SVCs only).

PA-A6 Enhanced ATM Port Adapter Plus (T3, E3, and OC-3)

With advanced ATM features, the enhanced PA-A6 ATM port adapter plus supports broadband aggregation, WAN aggregation, and campus/metropolitan-area network (MAN) aggregation, including the following types of applications:

Broadband subscriber access aggregation

High-speed customer premises equipment (CPE) WAN link

High-speed WAN uplink

High-speed enterprise backbone

The enhanced PA-A6 ATM port adapter plus supports many of the same features as the PA-A3 ATM port adapter, but provides additional hardware capacity, including support of up to 8191 VCs.

The enhanced PA-A6 ATM port adapter plus is a series of single-width, single-port ATM port adapters for Cisco 7200 series, Cisco 7401ASR, Cisco 7500 series, and Cisco 7600 series routers.

Like the PA-A3 ATM port adapter, the PA-A6 ATM port adapter also supports advanced ATM hardware features such as per-VC and per-VP traffic shaping. It supports most ATM service classes including ABR, CBR, nrt-VBR, rt-VBR, UBR, and UBR+ (for SVCs only).

1 Uses a fairness algorithm (as defined in Appendix I.3 of Traffic Management Spec. 4.0). Specifically, the TI1585 ASIC uses the max-min fairness criteria. It divides the available bandwidth for bottlenecked connections among all connections bottlenecked on this link. The bandwidth available for bottlenecked connections is defined as the available link bandwidth minus the sum of all bandwidths of connections bottlenecked elsewhere.


Software Planning for ATM Traffic Management

The Cisco 7200 series routers and ATM port adapters are supported by a variety of Cisco IOS software releases. The currently available Cisco IOS releases include Cisco IOS Release 12.0, Cisco IOS Release 12.1, and Cisco IOS Release 12.2, and several early deployment releases including Cisco IOS Release 12.0 S, Cisco IOS Release 12.1 E, Cisco IOS Release 12.2 S, Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, and Cisco IOS Release 12.2 B.


Note If you are new to Cisco IOS software and its release structure, you might find it useful to refer to the ABCs of Cisco IOS Software site located on Cisco.com. Use the ABCs Site Map to access specific topics, including information about how the Cisco IOS software is packaged and its release trains. You can also go to the Cisco IOS Software home page to locate other information about the Cisco IOS software, its product documentation, and tools.


This section provides background information about some of the latest Cisco IOS software releases supported by the Cisco 7200 series routers and describes some of the relationships between the software releases. It also includes information about where new feature support is introduced and about code stability and maturity that can help you to determine which Cisco IOS software release best suits your environment and objectives.

This section includes the following topics:

Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.0 T and 12.1 Release History

Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.1 T and 12.2 Release History

Cisco IOS Release Summary

Additional Software Planning Information for the PA-A3 and PA-A6 ATM Port Adapters

Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.0 T and 12.1 Release History

Cisco IOS Release 12.1 is based directly on Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T. It offers all of the advanced features of the 12.0 T release, but with some additional fixes. Therefore, it provides better code maturity and stability.

The last Cisco IOS 12.0 T release was Cisco IOS Release 12.0(7)T, after which the release numbering was incremented—the next maintenance release of this code is called Cisco IOS Release 12.1(1). The 12.1(1) and subsequent 12.1 releases are focused on code maturity and stability, and they are intended to achieve general deployment (GD) certification. To reach this goal, the feature set of the 12.1 release was frozen with Cisco IOS Release 12.1(1). At that time, new features and hardware support were directed into the 12.1 E and 12.1 T releases.

When the12.0 T release became the 12.1 release, the following two new branches, called Cisco IOS Release 12.1 E and Cisco IOS Release 12.1 T, were created for new feature integration:

Cisco IOS Release 12.1 T—Integrates features and hardware support for platforms across the Cisco product line.

Cisco IOS Release 12.1 E—Focuses exclusively on feature and hardware support for the Cisco 7500, Cisco 7200, and Cisco 7100, and Catalyst 6000 families.

Both the 12.1 E and 12.1 T branches are synchronized to the 12.1 release, receiving the same bug fixes that are committed into the 12.1 branch.

Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.1 T and 12.2 Release History

The last 12.1 T release was Cisco IOS Release 12.1(5)T, after which the release numbering was again incremented. The next maintenance release of this code is called Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1). Similar to the release history and objectives of Cisco IOS Release 12.1 described in the previous topic, the 12.2(1) and subsequent 12.2 releases are focused on code maturity and stability to achieve general deployment (GD) certification. To reach this goal, the feature set of Cisco IOS Release 12.2 was frozen with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1).

When the 12.1 T release became the 12.2 release, the following three new branches, called Cisco IOS Release 12.2 B, Cisco IOS Release 12.2 S, and Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, were created for new feature integration:

Cisco IOS Release 12.2 B—Focuses primarily on broadband solutions and supports the Cisco 7400, Cisco 7200, and Cisco 6400 product families.

Cisco IOS Release 12.2 S—Focuses exclusively on feature and hardware support for the Cisco 7600, Cisco 7500, Cisco 7400, Cisco 7200, and Cisco 7100, and Catalyst 6000 product families.

Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T—Integrates features and hardware support for platforms across the Cisco product line.
