The Cisco 6400 Carrier-Class Broadband Aggregator is an ATM-centric, scalable broadband aggregation platform that enables the selection and delivery of broadband network services, virtual private networks (VPNs) and voice services. Learn more about the Cisco Broadband Aggregation portfolio—the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio for service providers delivering broadband services.

Cisco 6400 Broadband Applications:
  • Service Selection Gateway (SSG): The Service Selection Gateway (SSG) allows subscribers to dynamically select on-demand services. As the gateway to next generation services, the SSG enables services such as videoconferencing, streaming video, personalized Internet, business-grade Internet, shopping, and gaming to create new revenue streams and help attract and retain subscribers. The SSG allows each family member to access multiple services simultaneously for the ultimate in service utility, flexibility, and advertisement.

  • Broadband Aggregation: The Cisco 6400 carrier-class broadband aggregator is a high-performance, scalable service gateway that enables the selection and delivery of broadband network services, virtual private networks (VPNs), and voice- and entertainment-driven traffic over the full suite of access media. The Cisco 6400 combines the richness of Cisco IOS® software, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switching and routing capabilities, and value-added service selection in a modular, scalable, redundant, Network Equipment Building Standard (NEBS) certified and ETSI form factor.

  • MPLS VPN: Using the Cisco 6400, service providers can simultaneously route end-user traffic over secure, independent pathways exceeding 1000 different domains or end destinations, with an aggregate throughput of over 2.4 gigabit per second forwarding capacity for handling even the most bandwidth-intensive broadband traffic. Each domain represents a VPN that may be assigned its own secure private path and own QoS level, enabling service providers to generate revenue by assigning QoS levels for each domain connection or service and charging fees accordingly.

  • Redundancy: The Cisco 6400 consists of a fault-tolerant ATM switching core and multiple fault tolerant routing engines. Two-port OC-3/STM-1 ATM interface; two-port DS3 ATM interface; one-port OC-12 ATM interface; all interfaces provide automatic protection switching (APS) in redundant configuration. Maximum configuration supports up to 32 DS3 or OC-3/STM-1 ATM interfaces, or up to eight OC-12 ATM interfaces per chassis.
