The Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 helps enable superior network agility, packet optical convergence, and petabits-per-second system scale. It facilitates the Cisco Evolved Programmable Network to support virtualization and programmability at low total cost of ownership and delivers high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services to end users.
Choose the best router for you.
Enhance application service offerings, increase provisioning speed, and optimize your network economics systemwide.
Innovations include Cisco nPower X1 NPUs, hardware-enabled true zero-packet, zero-topology loss ISSU, capability to scale beyond 1 petabit in a multichassis configuration, enhanced operations support, and packet-optical integration.
Intelligent distributed architecture and operationally efficient and redundant hardware help prevent interruption of service.
Use an adaptable power consumption model for both the ASIC and CMOS photonics technology for the lowest carbon footprint in service provider routing today. Easily adapt each line card's power consumption to the number of ports used.
Support control-plane integration between the router and optical extensions for configuration, monitoring, proactive redundancy, and scalability. Efficiently deliver cloud, video applications, and IoE capabilities to your customers.
