Extending Performance, Versatility, and Reliability at the Optical Edge
CISCO 7603 ROUTER
® 7603 Router is a small-form-factor, high-performance router designed for deployment at the network edge, where a combination of performance and services is necessary to meet the requirements of both enterprises and service providers. The Cisco 7603 delivers high performance with a forwarding rate of 15 Mpps, and 32 Gbps of bandwidth across the backplane while delivering high-touch, hardware-accelerated IP services via Cisco Parallel Express Forwarding (PXF) IP services processor technology.
Cisco 7603 Chassis
One of the Cisco 7600 Series Routers, the Cisco 7603 delivers optical LAN, WAN, and metropolitan-area network (MAN) networking with high-touch IP services at the network edge, enabling service providers and enterprises to "service enable" their networks at optical speeds. This creates opportunities for service providers to offer high-value, differentiated services, and for enterprises to develop the advanced network infrastructure necessary to succeed in the modern business environment.
The Cisco 7603 delivers performance in a compact (four-rack unit [RU]) three-slot chassis. The Cisco 7603 may be configured with a single route processor and two slots available for line cards or for high-availability and redundancy, with dual route processors and a single open line-card slot. The Cisco 7603 also supports redundant power supplies for increased reliability.
The inclusion of Gigabit Ethernet ports on the Cisco Supervisor 2 or Supervisor Engine 720 route processors eliminates the need to use a line-card slot for uplink ports. The result of this design is more efficient use of available line-card slots and increased deployment flexibility. Four Gigabit Ethernet ports are available for use in dual-route processor configurations.
Optical Services Modules for the Cisco 7600 Series are available with interface speeds ranging from OC-3 to OC-48, and the Cisco 7603 can also utilize the Cisco FlexWAN module (WS-X6182-2PA) to take advantage of the majority of Cisco 7200 and 7500 port adapters for terminating DS0 to OC-3 speeds. Along with the Cisco Catalyst
® 6000 Series of Ethernet line cards, the Cisco 7600 can scale WAN connectivity from DS0 to OC-48 and LAN connectivity from 10-Mbps Ethernet through Gigabit Ethernet.
Understanding the need to use rack space efficiently, the Cisco 7603 was designed to be a compact 7-inch-tall (four RU) unit, with single-side connection management for both interface and power terminations. This setup allows placement of up to 11 Cisco 7603 units per standard 7-foot rack.
With a powerful combination of speed and services in a compact form factor, the Cisco 7603 is an outstanding choice for deployment in applications such as peering where a small number of interfaces is needed, in a Tier 2 or Tier 3 point of presence (POP) where space is critical but high-speed aggregation is necessary, or in the metropolitan area to provide high-performance Ethernet aggregation and uplink.
