Release Notes for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers, Release 5.0.1

The Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 series router delivers outstanding network agility, packet optical convergence, and a system scale measured in petabits per second. It also facilitates the build-out of next-generation core to:
  • support elastic capacity at the lowest total ownership cost
  • deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services
Running the Cisco IOS XR operating system, Cisco's innovative virtualized operating environment, the Cisco NCS 6000 series router advances the concept of distributed routing and virtualization. With Cisco Virtualized IOS XR, the Cisco NCS 6000 series router brings new levels of programmability and virtualization to:
  • enhance application service offerings
  • increase provisioning speed
  • optimize network economics

NCS 6000 Series Router Key Features [Infographic]

The Cisco NCS 6000 series router is engineered for environmental efficiency, with the use of adaptable power consumption. The Cisco NCS 6000 series router is powered by the Cisco nPower Network Processor Units (NPU). These technologies aid the Cisco NCS 6000 series router to achieve the lowest carbon footprint in service provider routing.

The Cisco NCS 6008 router, part of the Cisco NCS 6000 series routers, is the next-generation core routing system that provides industry-leading 8 Tbps of full-duplex network bandwidth through eight line cards.

The Cisco NCS 6008 router runs on Cisco IOS XR software with Linux as the underlying host operating system. A Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor provides a virtualized environment to independently run system administration and routing functions on separate virtual machines. This provision makes the new system versatile and robust, and provides immense flexibility for future expansion without the need for a complete system overhaul.

A multi-slice architecture of line cards enables the system to be configured in a mixed operating mode, simultaneously supporting traffic at 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps on slice-level granularity.

These release notes describe the features provided in the Cisco IOS XR Software Release 5.0.1 for the Cisco NCS 6000 series router and are updated as needed.

These electronic documents may contain updates and modifications. For more information on obtaining Cisco documentation, see the Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request section.

For a list of software caveats that apply to Cisco IOS XR Software Release 5.0.1, see the Caveats section. The caveats are updated for every release and are described at http:/​/​www.cisco.com.

Cisco IOS XR Software running on the Cisco NCS 6000 Series Router provides the following features and benefits:

  • IP features—This supports a wide range of IPv4 and IPv6 services and routing protocols such as IPv4 unicast services, IPv6 unicast services, IPv4 Multicast services, IPv4 and IPv6 equal-cost multipathing (ECMP), IPv4 and IPv6 load balancing), Cisco Discovery Protocol, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), IPv4 LFA FRR, HSRP, and VRRP.
  • IP Multicast Features—Multicast forwarding with support for source-based and shared distribution trees and protocols such as Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), Bi-directional PIM (Bidir-PIM), PIM Source Specific Multicast (PIM SSM), Automatic Route Processing (AutoRP), Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) versions 2 and 3, and Multicast reverse path forwarding (RPF). The Multicast nonstop forwarding (NSF) and Multicast forwarding information base (MFIB) protocols are supported.
  • Layer 3 routing protocols—This supports routing protocols such as Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGPv4), Open Shortest Path First Version 2 (OSPFv2) and Version 3 (OSPFv3), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) Protocol, NSF using graceful restart for IS-IS, OSPF, and BGP.
  • Forwarding features—This supports routing protocols such as Access control lists (ACLs), Qos and class of service (CoS) using modular QoS command-line interface (CLI; MQC), IP packet classification and marking, Queuing (ingress and egress), Policing (ingress and egress), Diagnostic and network management support, Link Bundles, Bi-Direction Forwarding detection ( BFD), LACP, and Ethernet OAM Link Monitoring (IEEE 802.3ah).
  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Features—Supports MPLS features such as MPLS Label Distribution Protocol (LDP), Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP), Diffserv Aware Traffic Engineering (TE), MPLS Traffic Engineering control plane (RFCs 2702 and 2430), MPLS forwarding, MPLS load balancing, NSF for RSVP and LDP, and MPLS FRR.
  • Security—Features such as Message Digest Algorithm (MD5), Control packet policing, Dynamic control plane protection, and GTSM RFC 3682 (formerly BTSH) are supported.
  • Accounting—This supports features such as IP and MPLS Accounting, Interface Counters and Statistics, and Sampled Netflow ( IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS).
  • Control packet policing
  • Dynamic control plane protection
  • GTSM RFC 3682 (formerly BTSH)
  • Network Management—This supports features like Enhanced CLI, XML interface, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and MIB support - (SNMPv1,SNMPv2c,SNMPv3), and Cisco Prime Network
  • System redundancy—Features such as Power redundancy 1:1 or 1:N, Fan tray redundancy 1:1, Route processor redundancy 1:1, Virtual machine redundancy, Line-card online insertion and removal (OIR) support, Fabric card OIR support, Out of resource management, and IOS XR redundancy.

What's New in Release 5.0.1

Software Features

  • 100 Gigabit Ethernet PHY Monitoring—The IEEE 802.3ba standard provides the ability to actively monitor the bit error rate (BER) of each 100 Gigabit Ethernet and 40 Gigabit Ethernet links at the receiving PHY. The two additional configurable BER thresholds are Signal Degrade (SD) and Signal Fail (SF) for each link. Both SD and SF can be configured to generate an alarm when the threshold is crossed. Additionally, SF can be configured to signal Remote Fault to the other end and bring the link down when the threshold is crossed.
  • BGP policy accounting—BGP policy accounting uses (PA) traffic indices that are set on BGP routes to track various counters.
  • BFD Over Member Links on Link Bundles—BFD supports BFD sessions on individual physical bundle member links to monitor Layer 3 connectivity on those links, rather than just at a single bundle member.
  • Faster Creation of Bootable USB Drive—The bootable USB drive can now be created by coping the compressed boot file to the USB drive and unzipping it.
  • FTP and SFTP Support for Install Add Command—The FTP and SFTP transfer protocols can be used for file transfer while using the install add command.
  • Install Prepare Support for System Upgrade—The install prepare command can be run on ISO images while performing system upgrade.
  • Install Verify Packages—The install verify packages command checks the installed packages for anomalies and inconsistencies.
  • IPv6 VPN Provider Edge—IPv6 VPN Provider Edge (6PE) uses the existing MPLS IPv4 core infrastructure for IPv6 transport. 6PE enables IPv6 sites to communicate with each other over an MPLS IPv4 core network using MPLS label switched paths (LSPs).
  • Line Card Slice Shutdown—It is possible to shutdown unused slices of line cards to conserve power and troubleshooting.
  • Kernel SMU Support—Installing a kernel SMU results in updating the kernel or making changes to third party components running on the host, System Admin VM and XR VM.
  • Reverse Path Forwarding (Strict and Loose)—Unicast IPv4 and IPv6 Reverse Path Forwarding (uRPF), both strict and loose modes, help mitigate problems caused by the introduction of malformed or spoofed IP source addresses into a network by discarding IP packets that lack a verifiable IP source address.
  • VRF-Aware Service Infrastructure—VRF-Aware Service Infrastructure (VASI) refers to the capability to use services, such as those that run on a multi-service blade (MSB), within different VPN routing and forwarding instances (VRFs). VASI interfaces are virtual interface pairs, where each of the interfaces in the pair is associated with a different VRF. Such a virtual interface is the next hop interface for any packet that needs to be switched between these two VRFs. The service can then be attached to these virtual interfaces.

Hardware Features

  • 60-Port 10Gbps Line Card with SFP+ Optics Module—The following modules are supported:
    • Lean Core (NC6-60X10GE-L-S) and Multi-Service Core (NC6-60X10GE-M-S)
