Designed for circuit-switched network migration and business applications, the Cisco® NCS 4201 and NCS4202 Series deliver best-in-class Circuit Emulation (CEM) and Carrier Ethernet capabilities.

Legacy copper access networks, based on Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH), and optical metro networks, based on Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) or Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) technologies, set the standards for reliability, capacity, and efficiency, transporting Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) traffic and carrying voice and data services. Service providers and carriers are nonetheless faced with many challenges and limitations imposed by these legacy networks and need alternatives for migrating their circuit-switched transport networks to future-proof packet-based networks.

The Cisco NCS 4201 and NCS 4202 Series Network Convergence Systems (Figure 1) are full-featured, compact 1RU high converged access platforms designed for the cost-effective delivery of TDM to IP/MPLS migration services. These temperature-hardened, high-throughput, small-form-factor, low-power-consumption systems are optimized for circuit emulation and business applications. NCS 4201 and NCS 4202 systems allow service providers to deliver dense scale in a compact form factor and unmatched CEM and Carrier Ethernet capabilities. They also provide a comprehensive and scalable feature set, supporting both Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) and Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN) services in a compact package.

NCS 4201 and NCS 4202 Systems

Feature

Benefit

Support for TDM and SONET/SDH migration to modernized packet-based optical metro network

Provides cost-effective delivery of CEM and Carrier Ethernet capabilities over a redundant and protected packet-based network (MPLS/FlexLSP).

Metro Carrier Ethernet aggregation

Enables the service flexibility and delivery of Layer 2, Layer 3, IP, and MPLS transport for advanced L2VPN, L3VPN, and multicast services.

Industry-leading, carrier-class CEM technology

Delivers any-to-any connectivity through a packet-based network (MPLS/Flex LSP) using TDM, PDH, SONET/SDH, and Carrier Ethernet (FE, GE, and 10GE) interfaces.

Next-generation access network with fully distributed and unique packet capabilities

Supports state-of-the-art Pseudowire Emulation Edge-to-Edge (PWE3), Hierarchical Quality of Service (H-QoS), and next generation IP/MPLS.

Cisco’s MPLS FlexLSP guarantees resiliency (sub-50-ms switchover time), fault propagation, connectivity verification, statistical multiplexing and scalability, with RSVP-TE extensions as the control plane for bidirectional tunnel (LSP) setup and programmability for SDN functionality support.

Operation efficiency with end-to-end network management

Supported by the Evolved Programmable Network Manager (EPN-M), which enables business agility and operational efficiencies through automated device operations, fast provisioning, and proactive assurance.

Flexible and compact platform

Designed with a compact 1RU form factor, the Cisco NCS 4201 and NCS4202 can be deployed in space-constrained locations such as ETSI 300-mm deep cabinets, and the extended temperature range feature supports deployment in locations with minimum environmental control.

Ethernet interfaces are available in copper and fiber, with speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps. Legacy interfaces are available in speeds ranging from nxDS1/E1 and nxDS3/E3, for PDH, to OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 SONET/SDH.

Industry-leading, carrier-class CEM technology

Although the legacy TDM infrastructure is aging, expensive to operate, and an inefficient platform for data transport, service providers and carriers are still required to maintain their TDM connectivity. End customers are sometimes reluctant to move to native Ethernet/IP/MPLS handoffs and might switch to a different service provider if forced to transition early.

The NCS 4201 and NCS4202 Series products provide a purpose-built solution that enables service providers to meet their legacy TDM requirements. With a wide variety of TDM, PDH, SONET/SDH, and Carrier Ethernet (FE, GE, and 10GE) interfaces in a very compact 1RU form factor, the NCS 4201 and NCS 4202 Series deliver any-to-any connectivity through a packet-based network (MPLS/Flex LSP), more efficiently than any other packet transport mechanism, and are not bounded by TDM transport inefficiencies. The NCS 4200 Series features include:

      Cisco’s industry-leading circuit emulation technology, which provides entry-level dense TDM circuit emulation over a protected Flex LSP core in a compact form factor

      A complete central office modernization option for legacy TDM DCS migration and SONET/SDH ADM ring overlay/migration, as well as facilitating the transition to packet-based networks over time

      A compact design that requires a much smaller central office footprint (some configurations provide more than two times the capacity of multiple DCS/ADM equipment) with significant power and cooling savings compared to legacy products

Fully distributed and unique packet capabilities for converged access networks

Migrating circuit-switched TDM, PDH, and SONET/SDH networks to Ethernet/IP/MPLS-capable switches and routers can be challenging, particularly when service providers need to replicate the functionalities and provisioning capabilities of the legacy infrastructure. Solutions such as pure OTN-capable switching products can address the bandwidth constraints of legacy optical transport networks, but they are based solely on Layer 2, VLANs, and G.8031/8032 protocols, which do not scale properly for a modernized packet-based metro network.

The NCS 4201 and NCS 4202 Series products enable service providers to easily transition to an MPLS next-generation metro network. To support the technological requirements of a next-generation architecture, the NCS 4200 Series products feature:

      State-of-the-art pseudowire emulation edge-to-edge (PWE3) and Hierarchical Quality of Service (H-QoS). The NCS 4201 and NCS4202 provide advanced per-traffic-class metering and offer bidirectional packet-count and byte-count statistics. The service offering is enhanced with Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) functions that include Layer 2 Connectivity Fault Management (CFM), IP Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) for Layer 3, and MPLS OAM.

      Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) and IEEE-1588 timing services required in today’s converged access networks. The NCS 4202 model provides a built-in GNSS receiver, which can act as a grandmaster clock for aggregating and backhauling TDM traffic.

      The NCS 4202 model also supports Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE®), which can be used to power small equipment. The router can be deployed in small, completely sealed cabinets in outside environments, because of its small form factor and its durability in extended temperature ranges.

      The NCS4202 model supports security services such as IP Security (IPSec), Network Address Translation (NAT), and Port Address Translation (PAT) to help protect against vulnerabilities to customer traffic and the network.

      IP/MPLS features capable of delivering the required functionalities for a next-generation copper and optical access network, including MPLS FlexLSP; a predictable, deterministic, transport-centric evolution of MPLS-TP, which guarantees resiliency (sub-50-ms switchover time); fault propagation; connectivity verification; statistical multiplexing and scalability, with RSVP-TE extensions as the control plane for bidirectional tunnel (LSP) setup; and programmability for SDN functionality support.

Operational efficiency and flexible deployment options

Service providers and carriers require capabilities that help them simplify and automate the management of their networks, promoting efficiency gains in the deployment and operation of the networks. They also need to be aware of the tremendous costs associated with housing and operating their infrastructure.

The NCS 4201 and NCS4202 products enable service providers to operate more efficiently, not only in the services they deliver, but also in the management of their infrastructure. Designed with a very compact form factor (1RU high) to accommodate deployment in small spaces and available with a range of mounting options, the system can be deployed in space-constrained locations such as ETSI 300-mm deep cabinets, and the extended temperature range supported by the device allow it to be deployed in locations with minimum environmental control. Small footprint and extended temperature range support allow service providers to extend the reach of their access networks to more challenging and remote locations. The interface modules, AC and/or DC redundant power supplies, and fan tray are all field-replaceable, providing high-availability capability to service providers.

In addition, the NCS 4201 and NCS4202 Series are supported by the EPN-M application, which provides simplified, converged, end-to-end lifecycle management across an optical and Carrier Ethernet infrastructure. EPN Manager is designed with SDN, NFV, and multilayer management in mind. Based on model-driven extensible architecture, EPN Manager allows service providers to:

      Increase their agility and operational efficiencies through automated device operations, fast provisioning, and proactive assurance

      Quickly respond to major market transitions, including traffic proliferation, new business models prompted by Over-The-Top (OTT) entrants, and packet optical network convergence and migration
