The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

This chapter describes the new hardware and software features supported on the Cisco NCS 4200 Series in this release.
3G SDH Support on the 1 port OC48/ 4 port OC12/OC3 + 12 port T1/E1 + 4 port T3/E3 CEM Interface Module
Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) is supported on the 4 Port OC481/OC12/OC3 + 12 Port A900-IMA3G-IMSGT1/E1 + 4 Port T3/E3 CEM Interface Module.
You can configure STM-1 or STM-4 on all four ports. If you configure rate STM-16 on any of the four ports, others ports are not available.
Latching loopback feature is supported.
For more information, see Carrier Ethernet Configuration Guide Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.7.x.
Layer 2 Control Protocol
Effective Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.7.1, you can forward, tunnel, or discard Multiple Registration Protocol (MRP), Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MMRP) or Multiple MAC Registration Protocol (MVRP) for a service instance on an ethernet interface.
For more information, see Carrier Ethernet Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.7.x.
Port Licensing Support on the 1 port OC48/ 4 port OC12/OC3 + 12 port T1/E1 + 4 port T3/E3 CEM Interface Module
The Cisco Software License Activation feature is a set of processes and components to activate Cisco IOS XE software feature sets by obtaining and validating fee-based Cisco software licenses. You should enable the license only for OCx ports. Use the platform enable controller Mediatype command to enable a particular license type on the controller port.
License is not required for the ports 0-15 (DSx ports).
Yet Another Next Generation (YANG) data-modelling language—A Data Modelling Language for the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), which replaces the process of manual configuration with a programmatic and standards-based way of writing configurations to any network device. It supports the automation of configuration for multiple switches across the network using data models.
RESTCONF—Provides a programmatic interface based on standard mechanisms for accessing configuration data, state data, data-model-specific Remote Procedure Call (RPC) operations and event notifications defined in the YANG model.
YANG Data Models—For the list of Cisco IOS XE YANG models available with this release, navigate to https://github.com/YangModels/yang/tree/master/vendor/cisco/xe/1671.
Revision statements embedded in the YANG files indicate if there has been a model revision. The README.md file in the same github location highlights changes that have been made in the release.
