The key capabilities of the Cisco NCS 4000 Series platform include:

      Packet switching: Packet switching includes IP transport, MPLS, LSR, and Carrier Ethernet, supporting 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with optional OTN (OTU-2, OTU-3, or OTU-4) encapsulation.

      OTN switching: OTN switching includes full optical channel data unit level 0 (ODU-0) switching with ports supporting SONET/SDH, Ethernet, and Channelized OTN; 10 Gigabit Ethernet (OTU-2), 40 Gigabit Ethernet (OTU-3), and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (OTU-4).

      Ultra-dense integrated DWDM: This feature offers full DWDM integration with support for IP-over-DWDM features including the Cisco nLight Control Plane Protocol.

      Hybrid traffic: OTN and packet switching can occur simultaneously, providing the ability to route or switch packet flows within a larger OTN container.

      Superior power efficiency: Cisco CPAK® pluggable transceivers and innovative silicon and power management solutions reduce power draw and increase density.

The Cisco NCS 4000 Series implements numerous architectural innovations, including:

      Agnostic fabric: This highly scalable fabric supports both packet and Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) switching, plus shelf and multichassis scale to more than 100 Tbps.

      Virtualized infrastructure: This innovative hypervisor-based software architecture supports full decoupling of the control and data planes. The architecture supports service integration capabilities that offer considerable flexibility to deploy applications within the platform or in the cloud.

      Multichassis and Back-To-Back (B2B) configurations: In a multichassis configuration, the system can deliver more than 100 Tbps of fully nonblocking switching capacity in a configuration with 16 line-card chassis and 4 fabric chassis (16 + 4).

      Full In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) with Zero Topology Loss (ZTL) and Zero Packet Loss (ZPL): This feature offers improved adherence to Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) and performance of software upgrades without requiring a maintenance window. This robust ISSU capability applies to the WDM, TDM, and packet capabilities of the system.

      State-of-the-art backplane technology ready to scale to 800 Gbps per slot: This technology provides the ability to scale the system by a factor of four within the initial footprint.

The NCS 4000 Series integrates easily with the Cisco NCS 2000 Series for fully programmable Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) functions. Integration can occur at the network element, control plane, and/or network management levels, meeting the diverse needs of widely varying operational models.

Platform architecture

Cisco NCS 4016 Chassis

The NCS 4016 chassis is designed to accommodate:

      Two route processors, which also act as shelf controllers for WDM or OTN applications

      Four fabric cards

      Sixteen line cards

The NCS 4016 system supports four fabric cards, which are agnostic cross-connects based on a flexible cell-switching architecture, used in a Clos configuration. The route processors handle all control functions, including both the route-processing function and the line-card processing functions necessary for high-scale Layer 1, 2, and 3 services (Figure 2).

OTN Functions

The NCS 4000 Series provides full ITU G.872-compliant OTN switching functions. It supports ODU-0 to ODU-4 multilayer switching and grooming, including nested OTN switching. The NCS 4016 system supports single-chassis switching of 6.4 Tbps fully nonblocking at ODU-0 level (2560 ODU-0 or ODU-Flex data units) while the NCS 4009 system supports single-chassis switching of 1.8 Tbps fully nonblocking at ODU-0 level (1440 ODU-0 or ODU-Flex data units).

The NCS 4000 Series is compliant with ITU G.709/G.798, allowing the cascading of at least 20 OTN cross-connects while maintaining jitter and wander specifications. It also complies with ITU G.709 Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) standards, with six levels of Tandem Connection Monitoring (TCM) support.

OTN configuration, provisioning, and protection are managed by a Generalized MPLS (GMPLS)-based OTN control plane supporting an embedded User-Network Interface (UNI) as the communication interface between control planes managing different transport layers within the same system. The control-plane instance runs inside the optical domain (overlay network scenario), providing an external UNI to client nodes for invocation of on‑demand services.

As an extension of the Cisco nLight Control Plane Protocol, an OTN circuit between ingress and egress nodes can be established statically or dynamically using Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) signaling. An OTN circuit is established and maintained as a Label Switched Path (LSP) between the ingress and egress LSRs, switched through transit LSRs. An LSP can be established as a Soft Permanent Connection (SPC) when the request comes from the user interface.

Protection mechanisms

The Cisco NCS 4000 Series platform provides a variety of different protection mechanisms operating at different layers. Although pure Layer 3, Layer 2, Layer 1, and Layer 0 protection mechanisms are defined, a holistic approach to protection is critical when multiple layers are operating simultaneously.

Currently supported protection mechanisms are:

      Layer 1: OTN: Subnetwork Connection Protection (SNCP/I, SNCP/N, and SNCP/S), 1+1

Management solution

The NCS 4000 Series solution integrates a state-of-the-art local craft interface, which can install, configure, monitor, and troubleshoot NCS 4000 Series applications both at the node and network levels.

Cisco Evolved Programmable Network Manager (EPN-M) provides end-to-end management as well as full Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security (FCAPS) functionalities for the Cisco NCS 4000 Series, NCS 2000 Series, and Cisco ONS devices. It also provides end-to-end management of OTN and IP + Optical converged services, making it possible to manage transport and IP networks with fewer steps to promote operational efficiency.

Fabric line cards

The Cisco NCS 4016 system supports four fabric line cards operating in a 3 + 1 redundant configuration (Figure 8). Each fabric card supports equally distributed connectivity across all 16 line cards. The fabric card is managed directly by the centralized route processor.

Description: Y:\Production\Cisco Projects\C78 Data Sheet\C78-729222-03\v5a 080616 0953 Anand\C78-729222-03_Cisco Network Convergence System 4000 Series\Links\C78-729222-03_Figure09.jpg

Figure 8.       

NCS 4016 400G Multichassis fabric line card (NCS 4016 Fabric V2)

The fabric is considered agnostic because it switches cells of variable sizes without knowledge of the protocol being transported, whether OTN or Ethernet. Each NCS 4016 line card is connected to all four fabric cards, one of which is redundant, allowing for full operation with three functional planes. Twelve front-panel connectors (CXP for 200G version and CXP2 for 400G version) allow a single-chassis system to migrate to a back-to-back or multichassis configuration.

The Cisco NCS 4009 system supports four fabric line cards operating in a 3 + 1 redundant configuration. Each fabric card supports equally distributed connectivity across all nine line-cards. The fabric card is managed directly by the centralized route processor. The NCS 4009 has a 400G fabric line card that is unique to the NCS 4009 and optimized for single-chassis applications.
