Supported Software Features for N540-24Z8Q2C-SYS, N540X-ACC-SYS, and N540-ACC-SYS

Following are the features supported on Cisco N540-24Z8Q2C-SYS, N540X-ACC-SYS, and N540-ACC-SYS variants.

CFM - EVPN/Port Channel

Ethernet Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) is a service-level OAM protocol that provides tools for monitoring and troubleshooting end-to-end Ethernet services per VLAN. This includes proactive connectivity monitoring, fault verification, and fault isolation. CFM can be deployed in an EVPN network. You can monitor the connections between the nodes using CFM in an EVPN network.

For more information about this feature, see the EVPN Overview chapter in the L2VPN and Ethernet Services Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

Layer 3 QinQ

The Layer 3 QinQ feature allows you to terminate Layer 3 VPN service transport over QinQ subinterfaces. This feature enables you to increase the number of VLAN tags in an interface and increment the number of subinterfaces. Customers of service providers often have specific requirements for VLAN tags and the number of VLANs they support. Different customers require separate VLAN ranges to avoid network overlaps in the same service-provider network, and to prevent mixing of traffic of different customers in the same network infrastructure. Assigning unique range of VLAN IDs to each customer restricts customer configurations and exceeds the VLAN limit of 4096 of the 802.1Q specification. This feature allows you to enable the dual tag and efficiently manage customers services.

For more information about this feature, see the L3VPN Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

Netflow Full Packet Capture

This feature helps capturing the exact packet size of the ingress Netflow packet.

Earlier, when a L2VPN packet with a destination MAC address starting with number 6 is received, the packet gets wrongly decoded as IPv6 packet; the packet size consequently gets reported inaccurately to the collector.

For more information on Netflow, see the Netflow Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

OpenConfig Data Models for Network Programmability

The OpenConfig (OC) data models are defined by the OC community to create configuration and retreive operational state data of the network. This release supports:

  • OC-LLDP data model for event-driven telemetry.

  • OC-Interfaces-Aggregate data model to manage aggregated interfaces. This model augments the existing oc-interfaces data model.

For more information about OC models and instructions to use these models, see the Programmability Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

PTP Asymmetry Readjustment

In any network, there can be static delays on PTP path due to different route selection for forward and reverse PTP traffic or due to any node having different delay for ingress or egress path. These delays can impact PTP accuracy due to the asymmetry in PTP.

PTP asymmetry readjustment feature provides an option to configure this static delay on slave for every master. This value can be configured in nanoseconds.

For more information on PTP asymmetry, see Network Synchronization Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

QoS L2 Re-Marking of Ethernet Packets on L3 Flows in Egress Direction

With this release, you now have the ability to perform Layer 2 (802.1p) marking on Layer 3 flows in the egress direction. This allows you to re-mark the priority of Ethernet packets on L3VPN traffic, but only in the peering mode. (To enable the peering feature, use the hw-module profile qos ingress-model peering configuration. You must reload the router for the hw-module configuration to be functional.)

For more information, see the section QoS Re-marking of Ethernet Packets in Egress Direction in the Modular QoS Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

Scale Limit for Bridge Domain

On Cisco NCS 540, the number of bridge domains that you can configure with Bridge Group Virtual Interface (BVI) on a physical interface is 682; on a bundle interface is 750. The number of bridge domains that you can have without BVI on physical and bundle interfaces is 1500.

The above mentioned scale value is calculated when a single attachment circuit is configured on a bridge domain. The scale value reduces if you want to configure more than one attachment circuit on a bridge domain.

Segment Routing Data Plane Monitoring

Unreported traffic drops in MPLS networks could be difficult to detect and isolate. They can be caused by user configuration, out-of-sync neighbors, or incorrect data-plane programming. Segment Routing Data Plane Monitoring (SR DPM) provides a scalable solution to address data-plane consistency verification and detection of unreported traffic drops. SR DPM validates the actual data plane status of all FIB entries associated with SR IGP prefix SIDs. SR DPM uses existing MPLS OAM tools and leverages SR forwarding principles to enforce test traffic paths.

For more information, see the Using Segment Routing OAM chapter in the Segment Routing Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

Segment Routing IS-IS Flexible Algorithm Prefix-SID Redistribution

Previously, prefix redistribution from IS-IS to another IS-IS instance or protocol was limited to SR algorithm 0 (regular SPF) prefix SIDs; SR algorithm 1 (Strict SPF) and SR algorithms 128-255 (Flexible Algorithm) prefix SIDs were not redistributed along with the prefix. The Segment Routing IS-IS Flexible Algorithm Prefix SID Redistribution feature allows redistribution of strict and flexible algorithms prefix SIDs from IS-IS to another IS-IS instance or protocols. This feature is enabled automatically when you configure redistribution of IS-IS Routes with strict or Flexible Algorithm SIDs.

For more information, see the Enabling Segment Routing Flexible Algorithm chapter in the Segment Routing Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

Segment Routing Tree-SID

Tree Segment Identifier (TreeSID) is a tree-building solution that uses a controller (SR-PCE using PCEP) to calculate the point-to-multipoint (P2MP) tree using SR policies. TreeSID uses a single MPLS label for building a multicast replication tree in an SR network. TreeSID does not require multicast control protocols such as RSVP, mLDP, and PIM.

A P2MP SR policy provides an SR-based TE solution for transporting multicast traffic. It works on existing data-plane (MPLS and IP) and supports TE capabilities and single/multi routing domains. At each node of the tree, the forwarding state is represented by the same segment (using a global TreeSID allocated from the SRLB). P2MP SR policy supports fast protection and prevents transient loop/loss when updating the path of a P2MP SR policy.

For more information, see the Configure SR-TE Policies chapter in the Segment Routing Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

SSHv2 Support for CBC Mode Ciphers

SSHv2 server and client connections support enabling of CBC mode ciphers 3DES-CBC and AES-CBC at the same time. These ciphers are disabled by default.

For information on how to enable the CBC mode ciphers, see the Implementing Secure Shell chapter in the System Security Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

Type 6 Password Encryption

Type 6 password encryption securely stores plain text key strings for authenticating BGP, IP SLA, IS-IS, OSPF, and RSVP sessions.

This feature is applicable for the Cisco N540-24Z8Q2C-SYS, N540X-ACC-SYS, N540-ACC-SYS, N540-28Z4C-SYS-A/D, N540-12Z20G-SYS-A/D, N540X-12Z16G-SYS-A/D and N540X-16Z4G8Q2C-A/D variants.

For information on how to enable Type 6 password encryption, see the Implementing Keychain Management chapter in the System Security Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

SSH and SFTP in Baseline Cisco IOS XR Software Image

From Cisco IOS XR Software Release 7.0.1 and later, the management plane and control plane components that were part of the Cisco IOS XR security package (k9sec package) are moved to the base Cisco IOS XR software image. These include SSH, SCP, and SFTP. This segregation of package components makes the software more modular. It also gives you the flexibility of including or excluding the security package as per your requirements.

The base package and the security package allow FIPS, so that the control plane can negotiate FIPS-approved algorithms.

For more information, see the System Security Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 540 Series Routers.

SSHv2 Support for CBC Mode Ciphers

SSHv2 server and client connections support enabling of CBC mode ciphers 3DES-CBC and AES-CBC at the same time. These ciphers are disabled by default.
