System Processing Engine Card

The system processing engine (SPE) card for the Cisco ICS 7750 is a single-board, Windows 2000-based computer that runs Cisco CallManager, Cisco ICS 7700 System Manager, embedded fault-management services, and other system software applications. The SPE can also support applications such as voice messaging and automated attendant, interactive voice response (IVR), voice messaging, and automatic call distribution (ACD).

The SPE can reside in any of the interchangeable slots (1 through 6) of the Cisco ICS 7750 chassis. The Cisco ICS 7750 requires at least one SPE and allows a maximum of five SPEs. The SPE is hot-swappable.

System redundancy is highly recommended. You can easily build in redundancy by adding SPEs for additional call-processing capabilities. For recovery, you should regularly perform a backup of all applications installed on the SPE, using the backup mechanisms that are recommended in the documentation for each application.


Note SPE200 cards that were used prior to system software release 2.1.0 are now obsolete. If you have a system with SPE200 cards and wish to install and use system software release 2.1.0 or later, you must replace the SPE200 cards with SPE310 cards. The SPE310 offers a keyboard and mouse port, a video port, and two universal serial bus (USB) ports supporting standard USB devices such as pointing devices and CD-ROM drives. The keyboard and mouse port can be used to connect simultaneously to a keyboard and a mouse, using the Y-cable that is included with the hardware. These SPE310 ports are required for Cisco CallManager installation and upgrades on the Cisco ICS 7750, beginning with system software release 2.1.0.

System Switch Processor Card

The system switch processor (SSP) card is an IOS-based Ethernet switch that passes data between all system cards to any Catalyst switches connected to the Cisco ICS 7750. The SSP supports eight 10/100 Mbps Ethernet connections, which are bidirectional, full-duplex, and can autosense speed and autonegotiate transmission mode. The Cisco ICS 7750 requires one SSP, which must reside in slot 7. The SSP is hot-swappable. Figure 2-3 shows the SSP card.

Figure 2-3 SSP Card

Two of the SSP Ethernet ports are external 10/100 Ethernet RJ-45 ports on the front panel, used for switching functionality between the Cisco ICS 7750 and any connected Catalyst 3500 Series XL or other Catalyst switches. One port is used as the primary link, and the second link is used for redundancy. The other six internal Ethernet ports support the universal slots on the backplane.

The Ethernet ports are identified as follows:

f0/1—External 1x port for connecting to 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10/100 Ethernet switches

f0/2—External 2x port for connecting to 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10/100 Ethernet switches

f0/3—Slot 1

f0/4—Slot 2

f0/5—Slot 3

Multiservice Route Processor Cards

The multiservice route processor (MRP) card is a voice- and data-capable router that supports both digital and analog voice trunks and WAN routing interfaces. Using the MRP you can link remote Ethernet LANs to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and existing private branch exchanges (PBXs), as well as most common analog devices such as fax machines and teleconferencing stations. The MRP card accepts voice interface cards (VICs), WAN interface cards (WICs), and voice WAN interface cards (VWICs) for complete integration of voice and data networking.

The MRP can reside in any of the interchangeable slots (slot 1 through slot 6). The Cisco ICS 7750 supports up to five MRP cards. The MRP card is hot-swappable.

MRP cards are available with onboard Flash memory or without Flash memory. A mixture of MRP cards (cards with Flash memory and cards without Flash memory) on the same chassis is supported.

The following MRP cards have onboard Flash memory:

MRP300—Basic MRP card with onboard Flash memory.

MRP3-8FXS—Contains an 8-port Foreign Exchange Station (FXS) module and an open slot for any VIC, WIC, or VWIC module that support digital and analog voice trunks and WAN routing interfaces. The MRP3-8FXS is similar to the Analog Station Interface 81 (ASI81) card except that the ASI81 does not have onboard Flash memory.

MRP3-16FXS—Contains a 16-port FXS module. The MRP3-16FXS is similar to the ASI160 card except that the ASI160 does not have onboard Flash memory.

MRP3-8FXOM1—Combines the MRP300 card with a high-density analog module. The MRP3-8FXOM1 card has eight onboard Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) M1 ports and an open VIC/WIC/VWIC slot. The FXO M1 ports enable connections to a PSTN or to a PBX. The open VIC/WIC/VWIC slot may be used for any interface card that is supported on the Cisco ICS 7750.

The following MRP cards do not have onboard Flash memory:

MRP200—Basic MRP card without Flash memory.


Note Unless specifically stated otherwise, references to MRPs in this book do not apply to MRP200s.


ASI81—Contains an 8-port FXS module and an open VIC, WIC, or VWIC slot. The ASI81 is similar to the MRP3-8FXS except that the ASI81 does not have onboard Flash memory.

ASI160—Contains a 16-port FXS module. The ASI160 is similar to the MRP3-16FXS except that the ASI160 does not have onboard Flash memory.


Note For information about the VICs, WICs, and VWICs that are supported on the MRP card, see the "Voice and WAN Interface Cards" section.

Feature Summary of MRP Cards

Key features and benefits of MRP cards include the following:

Digital signal processor (DSP) support—Supports up to ten DSPs; each DSP can handle multiple voice channels, depending on the codec complexity. Supports both high-complexity and medium-complexity analog DSPs.

DSP resource sharing—DSP resources in packet voice/data modules (PVDM0 and PVDM1) can be pooled and shared among analog and digital voice ports.

Interface cards support—The MRP architecture incorporates VIC, WIC, and VWIC cards, a RAM memory expansion slot, packet voice data module (PVDM) slots, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) module slot, and a Flash module slot for MRPs with Flash memory.

Internet and intranet access—Cisco IOS software features enable the MRP to communicate across both intranets and the Internet:

Multiprotocol routing (IP, Internetwork Packet Exchange [IPX], and AppleTalk), IBM/SNA, and transparent bridging over ISDN, asynchronous serial, and synchronous serial such as leased lines, Frame Relay, Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS), Switched 56, and X.25

WAN optimization, including dial-on-demand routing (DDR), bandwidth-on-demand (BOD) and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)-on-demand circuit, snapshot routing, compression, filtering, and spoofing

Network security features—Access control lists (ACLs), user authentication, authorization, and accounting (such as Password Authentication Protocol/Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol [PAP/CHAP], TACACS+, and RADIUS), and data encryption.

Internal LAN security—Integrated Cisco IOS Firewall Feature Set uses context-based access control (CBAC) to protect internal LANs from attacks.

External data security—IPSec tunneling with Data Encryption Standard (DES) and Triple DES (3DES) encryption provide standards-based data privacy, integrity, and authenticity as data travels through a public network.

Remote access security—For remote access VPNs, Layer 2 Forwarding (L2F) and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) combine with IP Security (IPSec) encryption to provide a secure multiprotocol solution (for IP, IPX, and AppleTalk traffic).

End-to-end QoS capabilities—QoS categories include classification, congestion management, congestion avoidance, traffic shaping and policing, signaling, and link efficiency mechanisms. Features such as Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), committed access rate (CAR), and IP precedence enable businesses to prioritize traffic on their networks by user, application, traffic type, and other parameters. The QoS Device Manager (QDM) and QoS Policy Manager (QPM) applications that are used to configure and manage QoS are also supported on MRPs with Flash memory.

Voice compression—Up to six voice calls can occupy a single 64-KB data channel simultaneously, without compromising data performance. Cisco IOS voice-compression technology integrates data and voice traffic to enable use of existing data networks.

High-performance RISC architecture—Supports VPN applications with tunneling and security, and DSL, cable, and other broadband access technologies. A slot on the MRP supports an optional VPN module that provides IPSec DES and 3DES encryption at T1/E1 speeds in hardware.

SNMP support—The ICS System Manager supports SNMP to operate with CiscoWorks2000 to provide central monitoring and troubleshooting of remote Cisco ICS 7750 systems.

Data transfer—Each MRP card supports a data transfer speed of up to the equivalent of three T1 lines, with a maximum of one T1 voice span. Also, each MRP card supports a maximum of four data ports or four voice ports.

Flash memory—The MRP300, MRP3-8FXS, MRP3-16FXS, and MRP3-8FXOM1 each have 16 MB of onboard Flash memory and an expansion single in-line memory module (SIMM) slot that can take an additional 16, 32, or 64 MB of Flash memory. A total of 80 MB of addressable Flash memory is supported.

Multiple virtual LAN (VLAN) support—The MRPs with Flash memory can support routing between VLAN groups within the Cisco ICS 7750 chassis. Support for multiple VLANs enables the configuration of separate voice, data, and management VLAN groups.

Multichannel support—This feature enables the MRP to support multiple channel groups and PRI data channels on a single T1 or E1 controller.

The MRP3-8FXOM1 provides additional features, including the following:

High-density FXO M1 capability—The MRP3-8FXOM1 card can provide up to twelve FXO M1 ports if a 4-port FXO card (VIC-4FXO-M1) is installed in the open VIC/WIC/VWIC slot.

Trunking redundancy—FXO M1 ports may be used as a backup connection to the PTSN when T1 CAS or PRI trunks are disabled.

Alternative to digital T1—In lower capacity environments (fewer than 50 seats), the MRP3-8FXOM1 may be used as a low-cost alternative to digital T1 trunks.

Caller ID support—The hardware and software for the MRP3-8FXOM1 support the sending and receiving of caller ID information through the FXO M1 ports.

Battery reversal detection—Battery polarity reversal detection is used to provide call disconnect supervision and far-end answer supervision.
