Cisco NCS 1001 Overview
Cisco NCS 1001 (NCS1001-K9) is 1 RU chassis that addresses the growing bandwidth needs of data center DWDM applications. It provides a DWDM line system that is optimized for data center environments and is optimized for point-to-point applications at maximum capacity. NCS 1001 supports up to three optical modules. The modules can be amplifiers, protection switching modules, or OTDR modules.
NCS 1001 has the following components:
Removable control card
Four removable fans
Two removable 600W AC power supply modules (PSU)
Three slots for optical modules. The Optical Amplifier Module ( NCS1K-EDFA), Protection Switching Module (NCS1K-PSM), and Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (NCS1K-OTDR) module can be inserted in these slots.
The optical modules can be inserted in slots 1 to 3. The optical modules can be inserted and removed from the slots while the system is operational. In amplified configuration, the Optical Amplifier module can be inserted in any slot. In protected configuration, the protect Optical Amplifier module is inserted in slot 1, Protection Switching Module in slot 2, and working Optical Amplifier module in slot 3. The OTDR line card can be inserted in any slot.
