The Cisco® CRS-1 Carrier Routing System is the first carrier router offering continuous system operation, unprecedented service flexibility, and system longevity. The Cisco CRS-1 is powered by Cisco IOS® XR Software - a unique self-healing, distributed operating system designed for always-on operation while scaling system capacity up to 92 Tbps. The innovative system architecture combines the Cisco Silicon Packet Processor, the first programmable 40-Gbps application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), with the Cisco Service Separation Architecture for superior service flexibility and speed to service. The Cisco CRS-1 marks a new era in carrier IP Communications by powering the foundation for network and service convergence today while protecting investments for decades to come.
This data sheet provides detailed product specifications for an important element of the Cisco IP-over-DWDM solution, the Cisco CRS-1 1-Port OC-768c/STM-256c Tunable WDMPOS Interface Module (Figure 1). The module helps service providers to increase efficiencies, improve reliability, and reduce operational and capital costs by eliminating expensive and bulky optical transponder equipment, even as video-based applications rapidly increase traffic in their DWDM networks. The module connects directly into any DWDM network and provides up to 40 Gbps of data throughput across existing 10-Gbps DWDM systems. The module is completely tunable across the C band with 50-GHz spacing and supports high-gain Enhanced Forward Error Correction (EFEC), extending reach up to 1000 kilometers (km) without requiring signal regeneration.

Cisco Services make networks, applications, and the people who use them work better together.
Today, the network is a strategic platform in a world that demands better integration between people, information, and ideas. The network works better when services, together with products, create solutions aligned with business needs and opportunities.
The unique Cisco Lifecycle approach to services defines the requisite activities at each phase of the network lifecycle to help ensure service excellence. With a collaborative delivery methodology that joins the forces of Cisco, our skilled network of partners, and our customers, we achieve the best results.
