Cisco Network Convergence System 6000 Series 10-Port 100-Gbps Multiservice Line Cards with Cisco AnyPort Technology Data Sheet

The Cisco® Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 Series Routers offer exceptional network agility, packet optical convergence, and petabit per second system scale. The Cisco NCS 6000 Series also facilitates the build-out of the next-generation core to support elastic capacity at a low TCO and to deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services.

Using the industry-leading Cisco IOS® XR operating system, running in a virtualized environment, the Cisco NCS 6000 Series advances the concept of distributed routing and virtualization. Using virtualized Cisco IOS XR, the Cisco NCS 6000 Series brings new levels of programmability and virtualization to increase application service offerings, accelerate provisioning, and make the network more cost effective.
The Cisco NCS 6000 Series is powered by the Cisco nPower family of Network Processor Units (NPU). Cisco nPower devices are state-of-the-art programmable forwarding ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuit), designed to deliver the industry's first zero-packet loss (ZPL) and zero-topology loss (ZTL) software upgrade capability.
The Cisco NCS 6000 Series is engineered for environmental efficiency by offering an adaptable power-consumption model for its ASICs, and the use of revolutionary CMOS photonics technology. With these technologies together, the Cisco NCS 6000 Series can offer the most power-efficient footprint in the service provider routing space.

Features and Benefits

The Cisco NCS 6000 Series 10-port 100-Gbps Multiservice Line Cards are industry-leading solutions that allow service providers to offer one terabit per second (Tbps) of throughput over 10 ports with 100-Gbps interfaces. Optimized for high-speed IP and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) forwarding applications, they provide industry-leading forwarding scale and quality of service (QoS) at wire rate.
These line cards are available in two versions:

• 10-port 100-Gbps Multiservice Line Card with CXP optics (Figure 1.)

• 10-port 100-Gbps Multiservice Line Card with Cisco AnyPort technology and Cisco CPAK optics (Figure 2.)

The Cisco CPAK version uses the state-of-the-art Cisco nPower intelligent silicon design and the latest CMOS photonics-based Cisco CPAK 100-Gbps modular optics. With the combination of these technologies, the power consumption per gigabit is the lowest in the industry.
The use of Cisco CPAK-100G-SR10 modular optics enables the following short-reach interface options per CPAK:

• 1 port of 100 Gigabit Ethernet

• 10 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet

The Cisco NCS 6000 series introduces a new innovative Anyport technology that enables under software control and in conjunction with the attached CPAK optical module various high-speed Ethernet rates.
The Cisco CPAK optics allow for different optical capabilities at the same rates:

• Short reach using multimode fiber (MMF) connectivity with Cisco CPAK-100G-SR10 modules

• Long reach using single-mode fiber (SMF) connectivity with Cisco CPAK-100G-LR4 modules

Using the Cisco CPAK-100G-SR10 modules and a breakout MMF panel (NCS-PP-100X10-SR; Figure 3), the 10-port 100-Gbps Multiservice Line Card with AnyPort technology can support up to 100 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet short-reach MMF interfaces per card, 800 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces per chassis, and 12,800 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces per system.
The Cisco NCS 6000 Series 10-port 100-Gbps Multiservice Line Cards offer significant advantages to service providers:

• Industry-leading 1-Tbps throughput with full IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS forwarding capabilities, optimized for high-throughput Internet peering and core applications

• Advanced Cisco nPower Layer 3 forwarding NPU with industry-leading wire-rate lookup, forwarding, and QoS performance for IP and MPLS flows

• Built-in hardware acceleration for critical network control traffic

• Support across all Cisco NCS 6000 Series single-chassis and multi-chassis configurations for investment protection

• Support for the Cisco AnyPort technology allowing short-reach solutions to mix and match different types of interfaces and breakout capabilities

• Efficient environmental design by adapting the power consumption to active Cisco nPower resources only

• In Service Software Upgrade

• Independently programmable and upgradable NPUs with fault protection and isolation

• Enhanced onboard multicore CPU for accelerated and scalable software processing

• Integrated OTU-3 and OTU-4 framers for G.709 termination at 40- and 100-Gbps speeds

• Up to 2048 licensed enabled queues per 100 Gigabit Ethernet physical interface, with 20,480 licensed enabled queues per card

• Accurate hardware-assisted time-stamping support for OAM and service-level agreement (SLA) monitoring

• Industry-leading environmental efficiency with a low power and weight profile per Gbps
