The Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 series router delivers outstanding network agility, packet optical convergence, and a system scale measured in petabits per second. It also facilitates the build-out of next-generation core to:
  • support elastic capacity at the lowest total ownership cost

  • deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services

Running the Cisco IOS XR operating system, Cisco's innovative virtualized operating environment, the Cisco NCS 6000 series router advances the concept of distributed routing and virtualization. With Cisco Virtualized IOS XR, the Cisco NCS 6000 series router brings new levels of programmability and virtualization to:
  • enhance application service offerings

  • increase provisioning speed

  • optimize network economics

The Cisco NCS 6000 series router is engineered for environmental efficiency, with the use of adaptable power consumption. The Cisco NCS 6000 series router is powered by the Cisco nPower Network Processor Units (NPU). These technologies aid the Cisco NCS 6000 series router to achieve the lowest carbon footprint in service provider routing.

The Cisco NCS 6008 router, part of the Cisco NCS 6000 series routers, is the next-generation core routing system that provides industry-leading 16 Tbps of full-duplex network bandwidth through single chassis, and 32 Tbps of full-duplex network bandwidth through multi-chassis with eight line cards per chassis.

The Cisco NCS 6008 router runs on Cisco IOS XR software with Linux as the underlying host operating system. A Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor provides a virtualized environment to independently run system administration and routing functions on separate virtual machines. This provision makes the new system versatile and robust, and provides immense flexibility for future expansion without the need for a complete system overhaul.

A multi-slice architecture of line cards enables the system to be configured in a mixed operating mode, simultaneously supporting traffic at 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps on slice-level granularity.

This release notes describe the features provided in the Cisco IOS XR Software Release for the Cisco NCS 6000 series router and are updated as needed.

This electronic documents may contain updates and modifications. For more information on obtaining Cisco documentation, see the Communications, Services, and Additional Information section.

For a list of software caveats that apply to Cisco IOS XR Software Release see the Caveats section.

Cisco IOS XR Software running on the Cisco NCS 6000 Series Router provides the following features and benefits:

  • IP features—This supports a wide range of IPv4 and IPv6 services and routing protocols such as IPv4 unicast services, IPv6 unicast services, IPv4 Multicast services, IPv4 and IPv6 equal-cost multipathing (ECMP), IPv4 and IPv6 load balancing), Cisco Discovery Protocol, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), IPv4 LFA FRR, HSRP, and VRRP.

  • IP Multicast Features—Multicast forwarding with support for source-based and shared distribution trees and protocols such as Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), PIM Source Specific Multicast (PIM SSM), Automatic Rendezvous Point (AutoRP), Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) versions 2 and 3, and Multicast reverse path forwarding (RPF). The Multicast nonstop forwarding (NSF) and Multicast forwarding information base (MFIB) protocols are supported.

  • Layer 3 routing protocols—This supports routing protocols such as Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGPv4), Open Shortest Path First Version 2 (OSPFv2) and Version 3 (OSPFv3), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) Protocol, NSF using graceful restart for IS-IS, OSPF, and BGP.

  • Forwarding features—This supports routing protocols such as Access control lists (ACLs), Qos and class of service (CoS) using modular QoS command-line interface (CLI; MQC), IP packet classification and marking, Queuing (ingress and egress), Policing (ingress and egress), Diagnostic and network management support, Link Bundles, Bi-Direction Forwarding detection ( BFD), LACP, and Ethernet OAM Link Monitoring (IEEE 802.3ah).

  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Features—Supports MPLS features such as MPLS Label Distribution Protocol (LDP), Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP), Diffserv Aware Traffic Engineering (TE), MPLS Traffic Engineering control plane (RFCs 2702 and 2430), MPLS forwarding, MPLS load balancing, NSF for RSVP and LDP, and MPLS FRR.

  • Security—Features such as Message Digest Algorithm (MD5), Control packet policing, Dynamic control plane protection, and GTSM RFC 3682 (formerly BTSH) are supported.

  • Accounting—This supports features such as IP and MPLS Accounting, Interface Counters and Statistics, and Sampled Netflow ( IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS).

  • Control packet policing

  • Dynamic control plane protection

  • GTSM RFC 3682 (formerly BTSH)

  • Network Management—This supports features like Enhanced CLI, XML interface, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and MIB support - (SNMPv1,SNMPv2c,SNMPv3), and Cisco Prime Network

  • System redundancy—Features such as Power redundancy 1:1 or 1:N, Fan tray redundancy 1:1, Route processor redundancy 1:1, Virtual machine redundancy, Line-card online insertion and removal (OIR) support, Fabric card OIR support, Out of resource management, and IOS XR redundancy.

    What is New in Release 6.3.3

    Software Features

    BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP)

    The BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) feature enables monitoring of BGP speakers (called BMP clients). You can configure a device to function as a BMP server, which monitors either one or several BMP clients, which in turn, has several active peer sessions configured. You can also configure a BMP client to connect to one or more BMP servers. The BMP feature enables configuration of multiple BMP servers (configured as primary servers) to function actively and independent of each other, simultaneously to monitor BMP clients.

    The BMP Protocol provides access to the Adjacent Routing Information Base, Incoming (Adj-RIB-In) table of a peer on an ongoing basis and a periodic dump of certain statistics that the monitoring station can use for further analysis. The BMP provides pre-policy view of the Adj-RIB-In table of a peer.

    Hardware Features

    There is no new hardware introduced in this release.

    Important Notes

    • From this release, DN bit is set by default for all prefixes redistributed into BGP.

      Previous to this release, the prefixes redistributed into BGP from other protocols in the remote PE do not contain the extended community attributes. When these prefixes are redistributed into the OSPF VRF instance, OSPF originates external LSAs without DN bit being set.

    • From Release 6.0, the onePK toolkit is not supported.

    • Country-specific laws, regulations, and licenses—In certain countries, use of these products may be prohibited and subject to laws, regulations, or licenses, including requirements applicable to the use of the products under telecommunications and other laws and regulations; customers must comply with all such applicable laws in the countries in which they intend to use the products.

    • BFD limitation—If the current PPS (packets per second) is more than 7000 packets per line card (LC) then on upgrading the Cisco IOS XR software to release 5.2.5 or later the BFD sessions may shut down. You can avoid this scenario by adjusting the PPS per LC so that the load on a LC does not exceed more than 7000 PPS.

      To know the current load (PPS value), use show bfd summary command. Use the bfd address-family ipv4 minimum-interval command to configure BFD timer.

    • Field replacable unit (FRU) removal—For all card removal and replacement (including fabric cards, line cards, fan controller, and RP) follow the instructions provided by Cisco to avoid impact to traffic. See the Cisco Network Convergence System 6000 Series Routers Hardware Installation Guide for procedures.

    • Exceeding Cisco testing—If you intend to test beyond the combined maximum configuration tested and published by Cisco, contact your Cisco Technical Support representative to discuss how to engineer a large-scale configuration for your purpose.

      Minimum Firmware Requirement

      The following table provides the procedures and resources for minimum firmware requirements:

      After completing an Return Material Authorization (RMA), upgrade the firmware as per the matrix in this link, which also links to PDF copies of the IOS XR Firmware Upgrade Guides

      http://www.cisco.com/web/Cisco_IOS_XR_Software/index.html

      For the upgrade procedure, see the Performing System Upgrade and Installing Feature Packages chapter of the Cisco NCS 6008 System Setup and Software Installation Guide

      http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps13132/tsd_products_support_series_home.html

      Upgrading Cisco IOS XR Software

      Cisco IOS XR Software is installed and activated from modular packages, allowing specific features or software patches to be installed, upgraded, or downgraded without affecting unrelated processes. Software packages can be upgraded or downgraded on all supported card types, or on a single card (node).

      After you upgrade to Cisco IOS XR Release 6.3.3 using the 'fpd auto-upgrade enable' config command, note that the system does not upgrade the FPD version of the Micron_M600 SATA module.

      Use the following CLI to manually upgrade FPD version of the SATA module:

      (sysadmin-vm)# upgrade hw-module location <node-id> fpd SATA 

      You need not reload the card. After the upgrade, the FPD is updated to version 5.00.

      Important Notes

      • From this release, DN bit is set by default for all prefixes redistributed into BGP.

        Previous to this release, the prefixes redistributed into BGP from other protocols in the remote PE do not contain the extended community attributes. When these prefixes are redistributed into the OSPF VRF instance, OSPF originates external LSAs without DN bit being set.

      • From Release 6.0, the onePK toolkit is not supported.

      • Country-specific laws, regulations, and licenses—In certain countries, use of these products may be prohibited and subject to laws, regulations, or licenses, including requirements applicable to the use of the products under telecommunications and other laws and regulations; customers must comply with all such applicable laws in the countries in which they intend to use the products.

      • BFD limitation—If the current PPS (packets per second) is more than 7000 packets per line card (LC) then on upgrading the Cisco IOS XR software to release 5.2.5 or later the BFD sessions may shut down. You can avoid this scenario by adjusting the PPS per LC so that the load on a LC does not exceed more than 7000 PPS.

        To know the current load (PPS value), use show bfd summary command. Use the bfd address-family ipv4 minimum-interval command to configure BFD timer.

      • Field replacable unit (FRU) removal—For all card removal and replacement (including fabric cards, line cards, fan controller, and RP) follow the instructions provided by Cisco to avoid impact to traffic. See the Cisco Network Convergence System 6000 Series Routers Hardware Installation Guide for procedures.

      • Exceeding Cisco testing—If you intend to test beyond the combined maximum configuration tested and published by Cisco, contact your Cisco Technical Support representative to discuss how to engineer a large-scale configuration for your purpose.
