Convergence System 5000 Series offers a high-density, small-form-factor MPLS
aggregation router for metro aggregation. It is designed to economically scale
large enterprise, over-the-top (OTT), and service provider Data Center
The Cisco NCS 5000
Series is an extension to Cisco’s routing platform portfolio enabling Service
Providers and MPLS enabled data center architectures to offer elastic networks
with improved business agility and simplified operations to deliver
high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services.
It can also
operate as an extension shelf of Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services
Routers using Network Virtualization (nV) technology, consolidating multiple
layers in the network and dramatically reducing operational costs.
The Cisco NCS 5001
and NCS 5002 are small form factor dense GE/10GE aggregation systems. Powered
by industry leading routing operation system, IOS-XR, the system also offers
rich functions such as third party application hosting, machine-to-machine
interface, telemetry and flexible package delivery.
release of Cisco IOS XR operating system opens up the architecture of Cisco IOS
XR using a 64-bit Linux-based operating system to deliver greater agility,
automation and simplicity, while reducing the cost of operating the networks.
innovations in this release enable incremental builds, agile workflows, and
modular delivery of software, while also offering the capability to host
third-party applications on Cisco routers. These innovations deliver these
benefits by enabling traditional and web service providers to converge their
data centers and wide area network (WAN) architectures, by making networks more
programmable, and by facilitating tighter integration with popular IT
configuration and management tools.
