Cisco's Metro IP solutions, based on Cisco's resilient packet ring technology, Dynamic Packet Transport (DPT), bring the power of IP and the Internet to the Metro enabling simple, scalable and reliable networks. Internet-class Metro networks can now be built using the three principal components: Cisco 12000 Series Internet Routers, Dynamic
Packet Transport , and the Cisco 10720 Internet Router.
Cisco 12000 Series Internet Routers
The Cisco 12000 Series is the industry's premier next generation Internet routing platform featuring the capacity, performance, service enablers, and operational efficiencies service providers require for building IP backbone and high-speed provider edge networks. Coupled with high-performance DPT line cards
and the Cisco 10720, the Cisco 12000 Series brings the power of the Internet edge to the Metro.
