Cisco VIP6-80 Services Accelerator for the Cisco 7500 Series Router

Data Sheet


Cisco VIP6-80 Services Accelerator


The Cisco Versatile Interface Processor 6-80 Services Accelerator (VIP6-80) is the newest and highest-performance versatile interface processor for the Cisco 7500 Series Router. The Cisco VIP6-80 provides up to a 40 percent improvement over the Cisco VIP4 and a more than 100 percent improvement over the Cisco VIP2-50 when distributed features and quality-of-service (QoS) services are enabled on an interface. As such, the Cisco VIP6-80 is ideal for enterprise and service provider customers who require high-performance, high-speed interfaces and applications.


The Cisco VIP6-80 Services Accelerator is ideal for networks that require the highest-speed interfaces such as OC-12 or OC-3 ATM or channelized STM-1 combined with the application of Layer 3-7 services to these interfaces. Performance on these interfaces is significantly enhanced when certain features and QoS services are enabled. Examples of some of these distributed features and QoS services include the following:

  • Distributed Committed Access Rate (dCAR)
  • Distributed Weighted Fair Queuing (dWFQ)
  • Distributed Weighted Random Early Detection (dWRED)
  • Distributed Traffic Shaping (dTS)
  • Distributed Network-Based Application Recognition (dNBAR)
  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
  • MPLS Virtual Private Networking (VPN)
  • MPLS VPN + QoS

The Cisco VIP6-80 Services Accelerator is available in new system deployments and as an upgrade to existing VIP2 or VIP4-based systems. The Cisco VIP6-80 is compatible with the Cisco VIP2 and VIP4 and all VIP4-supported port adapters as well as all existing route switch processors (RSPs), including the Cisco RSP16.

The Cisco VIP6-80 Services Accelerator ensures high throughput, even while applying the broad set of intelligent Layer 3-7 services available with the Cisco 7500 Series Router.
