Cisco 7600 Series Routers

The Cisco 7600 series routers consist of these routers:

Cisco 7603 router (3 slots)

Cisco 7604 router (4 slots)

Cisco 7606 router (6 slots)

Cisco 7609 router (9 vertical slots)

Cisco 7609-S router (9 vertical slots)

Cisco 7613 router (13 slots)

Cisco 7600 series routers provide optical WAN and MAN networking with a focus on line-rate delivery of high-touch IP services at the edge of service provider networks.

Supported Hardware

The Cisco 7600 series routers support the following hardware:

A supervisor engine with two modular Gigabit interface uplinks and an optional redundant supervisor engine, in one of the following configurations:

Supervisor Engine 2, Policy Feature Card 2 (PFC2), and Multilayer Switch Feature Card 2 (MSFC2)

Supervisor Engine 2, PFC2, MSFC2, and Switch Fabric Module (SFM) or SFM2

Supervisor Engine 720, PFC3A, and MSFC3

Supervisor Engine 720 with PFC3B, and MSFC3

Supervisor Engine 720 with PFC3BXL, and MSFC3

Supervisor Engine 32 with PFC3B, and MSFC2A

Route Switch Processor 720 (RSP720), a PFC3C or PFC3CXL, and MSFC4


Note The supervisor engine and redundant supervisor engine must be completely identical.



Note The uplink ports are fully functional on the redundant supervisor engine in standby mode.


Additional OSMs, recommended Catalyst 6000 family modules, and SIPs in any combination:

Two additional modules for the Cisco 7603 router

Three additional modules for the Cisco 7604 router

Five additional modules for the Cisco 7606 router

Eight additional modules for the Cisco 7609 router

Twelve additional modules for the Cisco 7613 router

Hot-swappable fan assembly, redundant AC-input or DC-input power supplies, and modules

Redundant AC-input or DC-input power entry modules (PEMs) (Cisco 7603 and 7606 routers only)

Backplane that provides 32 Gbps of bandwidth; scalable up to 256 Gbps

A Switch Fabric Module (WS-C6500-SFM or WS-X6500-SFM2):

Only the Supervisor Engine 2 supports the Switch Fabric Module.

Supervisor Engine 720 does not support the Switch Fabric Modules.

Either the WS-C6500-SFM or WS-X6500-SFM2 Switch Fabric Module can be installed in slot 5 of of the Cisco 7606 or Cisco 7609 router. A redundant Switch Fabric Module can be installed in slot 6.

Only the WS-X6500-SFM2 Switch Fabric Module can be installed in slot 7 of the Cisco 7613 router. A redundant WS-X6500-SFM2 Switch Fabric Module can be installed in slot 8.


Note For redundancy, you can install a redundant Switch Fabric Module. The module that is installed first functions as the primary module. When you install two Switch Fabric Modules at the same time, the module in slot 5 or slot 7 acts as the primary module, and the module in slot 6 or slot 8 acts as the backup. If you reset the module in slot 5 or slot 7, the module in slot 6 or slot 8 becomes the primary module.



Note The Switch Fabric Module is not supported on the Cisco 7603 router or the Cisco 7604 router.

Reset Button

The Reset button allows you to restart the system.


Note Use a ballpoint pen tip or other small, pointed object to access the Reset button.


Console Port

The console port allows you to access the system either locally (with a console terminal) or remotely (with a modem). The console port is an EIA/TIA-232 asynchronous, serial connection with hardware flow control and an RJ-45 connector.


Note EIA/TIA-232 and EIA/TIA-449 were known as recommended standards RS-232 and RS-449 before their acceptance as standards by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).


For detailed information on using this port, see the "Connecting to the Console Port" section on page 3-15.

Console Port Mode Switch

The console port mode switch allows you to connect a terminal to the supervisor engine using either the console cable and adapters provided with the Cisco 7600 series routers or the console cable provided with a Catalyst 5000 family Supervisor Engine III.

You also can connect a modem to the console port using the cable and adapter provided with the system.


Note To access the port mode switch, use a ballpoint pen tip or other small, pointed object.


To connect a terminal, use the port mode switch as follows:

Mode 1—Switch in the in position (factory default). Use this mode to connect a terminal to the console port using the console cable and DTE adapter (labeled "Terminal") that shipped with the system.

You can also use this mode to connect a modem to the console port using the console cable and DCE adapter (labeled "Modem") that shipped with the system.

Mode 2—Switch in the out position. Use this mode to connect a terminal to the console port using the Catalyst 5000 family Supervisor Engine III console cable (not provided).

For more information on using the console port, see the "Connecting to the Console Port" section on page 3-15.

Switch Load Meter

The switch load meter provides you with a visual approximation of the current traffic load across the backplane.

PCMCIA Slot

The Flash PC card (PCMCIA card) slot holds a Flash PC card for additional Flash memory. You can use this Flash memory to store and run software images or to serve as an I/O device.


Note Throughout this publication, the term Flash PC card is used in place of the term PCMCIA card.


For detailed information on using the Flash PC card, see the "Using Flash PC Cards" section on page 3-20.

Uplink Ports

The supervisor engine provides two Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports that you can configure with any combination of short-wave (SX), long-wave/long-haul (LX/LH), and extended reach (ZX) Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs). The two 1000BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports operate in full-duplex mode only.


Note In a redundant configuration with two supervisor engines, the uplink ports on the redundant (standby) supervisor engine are active and can be used for normal traffic like any other ports in the chassis.


For detailed information on these ports, see the "Connecting to the Uplink Ports" section on page 3-16.

Port Addresses

Each port (or interface) in the Cisco 7600 series router is designated by several different types of addresses. The physical interface address is the actual physical location (slot and port) of the interface connector within the chassis. The system software uses the physical addresses to control activity within the system and to display status information. These physical slot and port addresses are not used by other devices in the network; they are specific to the individual router and its internal components and software. For more information, see the "Physical Interface Addresses" section.

The MAC address is a standardized data link layer address that is required for every port or device that connects to a network. Other devices in the network use these addresses to locate specific ports in the network and to create and update routing tables and data structures. The routers use a unique method, described in the "MAC Addresses" section, to assign and control the MAC addresses of their interfaces.

Physical Interface Addresses

Physical port addresses specify the actual physical location of each module port on the rear of the router, as shown in Figure 1-40. (The port numbering convention is the same in the three-slot, four-slot, six-slot, nine-slot, and thirteen-slot chassis.) The address is a two-part number in the format slot/port number. The first number identifies the slot in which the module is installed. Module slots are numbered from right to left starting with 1. The second number identifies the physical port number on the module. The port numbers always begin at 1 and are numbered from top to bottom. The number of additional ports (n/1, n/2, and so on) depends on the number of ports on the module.

Figure 1-40 Cisco 7609 Router Port Address Examples

Interface ports maintain the same address regardless of whether other modules are installed or removed. However, when you move a module to a different slot, the first number in the address changes to reflect the new slot number. For example, on a 4-port OC-12c POS OSM in slot 4 of the Cisco 7609 router, the address of the top WAN port is 4/1, and the address of the bottom WAN port is 4/4. If you remove the 4-port OC-12c POS OSM from slot 4 and install it in slot 7, the addresses of those same WAN ports become 7/1 through 7/4.

You can identify module ports by checking the slot and port location on the router. You can also use software commands to display information about a specific interface, or all interfaces, in the system. To display information about every interface, enter the show interfaces command without parameters. To display information about a specific interface, enter the show interfaces type command (type being the interface type) with the module (slot) number and port number in the format show interfaces type [mod/port].

MAC Addresses

All network interface connections (ports) require a unique MAC address. The MAC address of an interface is stored in electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) on a component that resides directly on the interface circuitry. The router system code reads the EEPROM for each interface in the system, learns the MAC addresses, and then initializes appropriate hardware and data structures. Each VLAN in the spanning tree has one unique MAC address. This addressing scheme gives the router the intelligence to identify the state (connected or not connected) of each interface. When you hot swap a module, the MAC address changes with the module.

Hot Swapping Supervisor Engines and Modules

The Cisco 7600 series routers provide a feature for removing and replacing the redundant supervisor engine, OSMs, Catalyst 6000 family modules, and SIPS without powering down the system. This feature is known as hot swapping.


Note Although the FlexWAN and Enhanced FlexWAN modules support hot swapping, individual port adapters do not. To replace port adapters, you must first remove the FlexWAN module from the chassis and then replace port adapters as required.


When you remove or insert a module while the router is powered on and operating, the system does the following:

1. Determines if there is sufficient power for the module.

2. Scans the backplane for configuration changes.

3. Initializes all newly inserted modules, notes any removed modules, and places them in the administratively shutdown state.

4. Places any previously configured interfaces on the module back to the state they were in when they were removed. Any newly inserted interfaces are put in the administratively shutdown state, as if they were present (but unconfigured) at boot time. If you insert a similar module type into a slot, its ports are configured and brought online up to the port count of the original module.

The system runs diagnostic tests on any new interfaces. If the test passes, the system is operating normally. If the new module is faulty, the system resumes normal operation but leaves the new interface disabled.

If the diagnostic test fails, the system crashes, which usually indicates that the new module has a problem in the bus and should be removed.

When you install two supervisor engines, hot swapping allows you to remove and replace one of the supervisor engines without turning off the system power.


Caution To avoid erroneous failure messages, note the current configuration of all interfaces before you remove or replace another module, and allow at least 15 seconds for the system to reinitialize after a module has been removed or replaced.

OSM Technology Overview

This section provides an overview of SONET/SDH and ATM:

ATM Overview

SONET/SDH Overview

The Packet over SONET (POS) specification defines the use of PPP encapsulation over SONET/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) links. SONET is an ANSI standard (T1.1051988) for optical digital transmission at hierarchical rates from 51.840 Mbps (STS-1) to 2.5 Gbps (STS-48) and greater. SDH is the international standard for optical digital transmission at hierarchical rates from 155.520 Mbps (STM-1) to 2.5 Gbps (STM-16) and greater.

Because a SONET/SDH link is considered to be a point-to-point circuit, PPP is well-suited for use over these links. PPP was designed as a standard method of communicating over point-to-point links.

SONET is an octet-synchronous multiplex scheme that defines a family of standard rates and formats. The basic rate for POS is STS-3c/STM-1, which is 155.520 Mbps. The available information bandwidth is 149.760 Mbps, which is the STS-3c/STM-1 Synchronous Payload Envelope (SPE), the payload portion of the SONET frame into which the octet-oriented user data is mapped. (Octet boundaries are aligned with the SPE octet boundaries.)

The International Telecommunications Union Telecommunication Sector (ITU-T) defines a series of SDH transmission rates beginning at 155.520 Mbps as follows:

SONET 1
SDH Equivalent

STS-3c

STM-1

STS-12c

STM-4c

STS-48c

STM-16c

1 ANSI-defined SONET specifications.


SONET is not limited to optical links. Electrical specifications have been defined for single-mode fiber, multimode fiber, and CATV 75-ohm coaxial cable. OSMs currently allow transmission only over single-mode and multimode optical fiber. Transmission rates are integral multiples of 51.840 Mbps, which can be used to carry T3/E3 bit-synchronous signals.

The following transmission multiples are currently specified and commonly used:

STS-3c—155.520 Mbps

STS-12c—622.080 Mbps

STS-48c—2,488.320 Mbps

ATM Overview

ATM uses cell-switching and multiplexing technology that combines the features of circuit switching (constant transmission delay and guaranteed capacity) with the features of packet switching (flexibility and efficiency for intermittent traffic).

ATM is a connection-oriented environment. All traffic to or from an ATM network is prefaced with a virtual path identifier (VPI) and virtual channel identifier (VCI). A VPI/VCI pair is considered a single virtual circuit. Each virtual circuit is a private connection to another node on the ATM network. Each virtual circuit is treated as a point-to-point mechanism to another router or host and is capable of supporting bidirectional traffic.

Each ATM node is required to establish a separate connection to every other node in the ATM network that it must communicate with. All of these connections are established using a permanent virtual circuit (PVC), which a network operator configures, or a switched virtual circuit (SVC), which is set up and torn down with an ATM signaling mechanism. This signaling is based on the ATM Forum User-Network Interface (UNI) Specification V3.x, 4.0.
