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 8 Tbps of full-duplex network bandwidth through single 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.

What is New in Release 7.0.1

Software Features Introduced in this Release

Layer 2 Interface Support on Pseudowire Headend

The Layer 2 Interface Support on Pseudowire Headend feature provides a virtual Layer 2 interface on a pseudowire (PW) for a service provider edge (PE) router. This feature allows termination of access pseudowires (PW) into an L2 domain. This feature allows you to send the L2 traffic over PWs from the access side to the core side. You can provision Lawful Intercept (LI) on a per PWHE interface basis, on a service provider edge (PE) router along with the regular Layer 2 services. This feature reduces the capital expenditure in access and aggregation network. This feature helps the customer network to distribute and scale the customer facing Layer 2 UNI interface set.

For more information on this feature, see the Configuring Collapsed Forwarding chapter in the System Management Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Increase in Scale Limit for Pseudowire Headend

The Pseudowire Headend (PWHE) interface scale limit is increased to 9K for 2T line cards. The scale includes all types of PWHE related interfaces, such as PWHE Ethernet, PWHE interworking, PWHE Layer 3 subinterfaces, and PWHE Layer 2 interfaces.

For more information about this feature, see the Implementing MPLS Layer 3 VPNs chapter in the Virtual Private Network Configuration Guide for the Cisco NCS 6000 Series Router.

BGP PIC Support on CSI Interfaces

This feature allows you to create a backup path on CSI interfaces. This feature uses the backup path to send traffic during network failure.

For more information about the feature, see the chapter Implementing BGP in the Routing Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Use Inter-SDR Collapsed Forwarding Feature to Forward Packets

The inter-SDR (secure domain routers) collapsed forwarding means that the cross-SDR interconnect (CSI) interface is used for forwarding packets. With the Ingress QoS Classify/Remark request on CSI interface feature, you can now remark the packet headers based on the policy maps attached to the CSI interface.

When the packets arrive at the ingress of an SDR through the CSI interface, the packets are remarked according to the ingress policy map defined for that CSI interface.

Using this remarking feature, you can differentially treat the packets according to the remarked fields in the egress path.

Support for hw-module shut command in configuration mode

From this release onwards, the hw-module shut and hw-module unshut commands are supported in the configuration mode.

This facilitates in automating the network hardware replacement procedure.

Earlier, the hw-module shut command was supported in admin mode

For more information on this feature, see the chapter Managing Router Hardware in the System Management Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers, Release 7.0.x

gRPC Out-of-Band Management Mechanism

Google-defined Remote Procedure Calls (gRPC) supports out-of-band notifications. This provides flexibility to implement policies outside the client.

For more information about the feature, see the chapter New and Changed Feature Information in the Cisco Programmability Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

External Control Plane Feature support on Dell R640 Server

Cisco NCS 6000 supports running external control plane (ECP) feature on Dell R640 server model.

For information on configuring ECP on Dell R640 server, see the Configuring External Control Plane chapter in the System Management Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers, Release 7.0.x

Slice Based SDR

Slice based secure domain router (SDR) feature enables you to configure multiple SDRs, up to two within a line card. SDRs are means of dividing a single physical system into multiple logically separated routers.

Earlier, an SDR boundary was defined at a line card level. Hence, it was necessary to allocate at least one line card to each SDR.

A single line card cannot be shared between multiple SDRs. Each named-SDR will have at least one slice configured.


Note

This feature is supported only on the 2T line cards.


For information on SDRs, see the Configuring Secure Domain Routers chapter in the System Management Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers, Release 7.0.x.

MVPN GRE over PWHE with CSI

MVPN GRE over PWHE is supported on CSI interface.

The Multicast VPN (MVPN) feature provides the ability to support multicast over a Layer 3 VPN.

Pseudowire Headend (PWHE) allows termination of access pseudowires (PWs) into a Layer 3 (VRF or global) domain or into a Layer 2 domain.

For more information on MVPN GRE over PWHE, see the Implementing Multicast Routing chapter in the Multicast Configuration Guide for the Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers, Release 7.0.1

Layer 2 Interface Support on CSI

The Layer 2 Interface Support on CSI feature provides a Layer 2 connectivity between the Secure Domain Routers (SDRs). This feature introduces a new virtual interface that is called CSI-Ether interface, which enables forwarding of Layer 2 frames between the SDRs.

Some cloud applications in the service provider network, such as the speed test, Internet Protocol Service Level Agreement (IPSLA), and so on, are sensitive to latency and jitter. To avoid extra L3 hops, you can use Layer 2 connectivity between the cloud applications in your network and the customer edge (CE) facing SDRs.

For more information on this feature, see the Configuring Collapsed Forwarding chapter in the System Management Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Ltrace Information Stored in Persistent Storage

The ltrace information is now stored in a persistence storage. This helps to store historic ltraces information in the memory. This trace information is used to augment diagnosis of platform issues.

Prior to this release, ltrace information was stored in a shared memory. The shared memory has limited buffer size. When the buffer was full, the historic data was lost.

To view the ltrace information use the show <component> trace file <filename> original location command.

Type 6 Password Encryption

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

For information on how to enable Type 6 password encryption, see the Implementing Keychain Management chapter in the System Security Configuration Guide.

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. The 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.

Event-driven Telemetry Support for LLDP

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:

  • Event-driven Telemetry support for OC-LLDP data model.

For more information about OC models and instructions to use these models, see the Modular Programmability Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 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 Modular Programmability Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Monitor MLDP Events for Telemetry using NETCONF

Event-driven telemetry supports monitoring Multicast Label Distribution Protocol (MLDP) using NETCONF and YANG data model. If there is a state change in MLDP, the router streams data about flow statistics for multicast labels, and control plane statistics for mLDP.

For more information about streaming event-driven telemetry data, see Telemetry Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers

gRPC Network Operations Interface

gRPC Network Operations Interface (gNOI) defines a set of gRPC-based microservices for executing operational commands on network devices. Extensible Manageability Services (EMS) gNOI is the Cisco IOS XR implementation of gNOI. gNOI uses gRPC as the transport protocol and the configuration is same as that of gRPC. These gNOI RPCs are supported:

  • Reboot

  • RebootStatus

  • SetPackage

  • File Get

  • File Remove

To understand how RPCs work in a gRPC session, see Modular Programmability Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers

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

Important Notes

  • 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.
