Cisco IOS® Software is always evolving to provide you with more features of higher quality. Cisco IOS XE Software releases provide a modular structure for Cisco® NCS 4200 Series Network Convergence Systems. Why is this modularity important? It allows the software to significantly enhance quality and performance by taking advantage of the separation of the data plane and the control plane.

Product overview

The NCS 4200 Series products provide a purpose-built solution that enables service providers to meet their legacy TDM requirements as well as their current and future needs for Ethernet services. With high-density TDM, SONET/SDH, OTN, and Carrier Ethernet (FE, GE, 10GE, 40GE, and 100GE) interfaces, the NCS 4200 Series delivers any-to-any connectivity using a packet-based network (MPLS/Flex LSP) more efficiently than any other packet transport mechanism and is not bounded by TDM transport inefficiencies.

The Cisco IOS XE Software available on the NCS 4200 Series portfolio (Figure 1) includes all features and licenses required for Metro SONET/SDH, OTN, IP, and MPLS aggregation services.

Features and benefits

Feature

Benefit

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

Provides cost-effective delivery of Circuit Emulation (CEM) and Carrier Ethernet (CE) 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 circuit emulation (CEM) technology

Delivers any-to-any connectivity using 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.

Comprehensive variety of interfaces and protocols

Ethernet interfaces are available in copper and fiber, with speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps.

Legacy interfaces are available in speeds ranging from nxDS0 to OC-192/STM-64 for Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH), Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH), and Synchronous Optical Network (SONET).

Optical Transport Network (OTN) wrapping functionalities are also supported.

Software releases and options

Cisco NCS 4200 Series systems are supported in Cisco IOS XE Software as of Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.18.0SP. The release is designed to provide modular packaging, feature velocity, and powerful resiliency.

Consolidated software packages

Three consolidated software packages contain a superset of all features activated. Table 1 describes the Cisco IOS XE Software universal consolidated packages supported on the Cisco NCS 4200 systems and the functionality supported in each of these universal images.

Cisco IOS XE Software release schedule

The Cisco IOS XE Software delivery schedule allows customers to qualify releases more quickly and have a definitive release schedule for new software images. This schedule is summarized in the following highlights.

      Time-based releases: Releases are planned for delivery three times a year (every four months). New software features and hardware are introduced in each release. Releases have fewer incremental features included when compared with traditional Cisco IOS Software releases, reducing customer qualification time.

      Two release support durations: Each Cisco IOS XE Software release is classified as either a Standard Support or Extended Support release. A Standard Support release has End-of-software-maintenance support lifetime of 12 months, with two or three scheduled rebuilds. The Extended Support release provides End-of-software-maintenance support lifetime of 36 months, with four or up to 10 scheduled rebuilds. For more information about the Cisco IOS XE Software end-of-life policy and associated support milestones for specific Cisco IOS XE Software releases, visit https://www.cisco.com.

      Rebuilds scheduled at regular intervals: Rebuilds are created only for bug fixes, and no new features are included in a rebuild image. For a release rebuild schedule, visit the Cisco IOS XE Software support timeline for details.
