Cloud scale for WAN aggregation

The Cisco® Network Convergence System 5500 Series offers industry-leading density of routed 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400GE), 100 GE ports for high-scale WAN aggregation. The NCS 5500 Series is designed to efficiently scale between data centers and large enterprise, web, and service provider WAN and aggregation networks.

Product overview

The Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 5500 modular chassis series includes the Cisco NCS 5504 modular chassis, Cisco NCS 5508 modular chassis and the Cisco NCS 5516 modular chassis (Figure 1). The Cisco NCS 5504 supports up to four line cards, six switch fabric cards, two route processors, two system controllers, three fan trays, and four power supplies. The Cisco NCS 5508 supports up to eight line cards, six switch fabric cards, two route processors, two system controllers, three fan trays, and eight power supplies. The Cisco NCS 5516 supports up to 16 line cards, 6 switch fabric cards, 2 route processors, 2 system controllers, 3 fan trays, and 10 power supplies.

Cisco NCS 5504, Cisco NCS 5508 and NCS 5516 chassis

NCS5500 routers support 10, 25, 40, 50, 100 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The Cisco NCS 5504 supports upto 14.4 Tbps full duplex, the NCS 5508 supports upto 28.8 Tbps full duplex and the Cisco NCS 5516 supports upto 57.6 Tbps full duplex today. With the introduction of the new NCS 5700 400 GE line cards, the per slot forwarding capacity increases by 2.67 times on each of the modular chassis to a maximum of 153.6 Tbps full duplex on the Cisco NCS 5516.

Cisco NCS 5500 chassis components

The Cisco NCS 5500 chassis are built using the components illustrated in Figure 2, which are described in the following sections. Figure 2 shows components of a Cisco NCS 5508 chassis. The NCS 5504 and NCS 5516 uses the same components with the exception of chassis-specific fabric modules and chassis-specific fan trays. The Cisco NCS 5516 has 16 line cards and Cisco NCS 5504 has 4 line cards.

Cisco NCS 5500 series switch fabric cards

The 3 variants of Cisco NCS5500 modular chassis, NCS 5504, NCS 5508 and NCS 5516 chassis have a Clos fabric design that interconnects the line cards with rear-mounted fabric modules. It supports up to six switch fabric cards per system and all fabric cards are directly connected to all line cards. With load balancing across fabric cards, the architecture achieves optimal bandwidth distribution within the chassis. (See Table 2.)

Cisco NCS 5500 series fan trays

Three hot-swappable fan trays are supported on the NCS 5504, NCS 5508 and NCS 5516 chassis with front-to-back cooling. The fabric modules reside behind the fan trays and each fan tray covers two fabric modules. Fan trays provide N+1 redundancy and any one of the fan trays can be removed in-service at a time to access the underlying fabric cards.

Cisco NCS 5500 2nd Generation Fabric cards and Fan trays

IOS-XR release 6.6.25 introduces new generation of fabric cards and fan trays for NCS-5508 (NC55-5508-FC2 and NC55-5508-FAN2) and NCS-5516 (NC55-5516-FC2 and NC55-5516-FAN2). The newer generation of fabric cards and fan trays for NCS-5504 (NC55-5504-FC2 and NC55-5504-FAN2) is introduced in IOS-XR release 7.2.2 and 7.3.1. With the second generation of fabric cards and fan trays, NCS-5504, NCS-5508 and NCS-5516 get readiness to add NCS 5700 400 GE and 100GE line cards. For more details, refer the datasheet for the 2nd generation fabric cards and fan trays.

Cisco NCS 5500 series power supply

The Cisco NCS 5500 Series supports hot-swappable, front-panel-accessible power supplies. N+1 and N+N (grid) redundancy modes are supported for a fully loaded Cisco NCS 5504 and NCS 5508, and N+1 and N+M redundancy modes are supported for a fully loaded Cisco NCS 5516. The 3000W AC and DC power supplies are 80 Plus Platinum rated, providing more than 92 percent efficiency across typical workloads. (See Table 5.)
