The Cisco® 10000 Series Router is the industry-leading edge router for service providers that require subscriber awareness for delivering triple-play (data, voice, and video), broadband, and wholesale access while migrating from ATM to Gigabit Ethernet. The Cisco 10000 Series is unique in that it offers a comprehensive, single solution for business services, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and broadband aggregation. It is built to be carrier-class with Cisco IOS® Software and hardware features. Cisco used its experience working with the world's largest service providers to optimize the Cisco 10000 Series for scalable, high-performance IP and MPLS services with five-nines (99.999) reliability.
The Cisco 10000 Series offers the following features:
• High-performance IP services:
– The Cisco 10000 Series helps service providers deploy revenue-generating services with consistent platform performance.
– The Cisco 10000 Series is the ideal broadband aggregation edge router for Ethernet and ATM architectures.
– The Cisco 10000 Series supports Parallel Express Forwarding (PXF), patented by Cisco. PXF offers customers the ability to turn on multiple IP services while maintaining line-rate performance. PXF is software-based; customers can add new service functions without swapping out hardware. The next-generation Cisco 10000 Series Performance Routing Engine 3 (PRE-3) provides industry-leading, per-subscriber hierarchical quality of service (H-QoS) for granular bandwidth management that improves the user experience for data, voice, or video.
– The Cisco 10000 Series supports many critical edge services and provides industry-leading feature richness with Cisco IOS Software, including H-QoS, MPLS, Multilink Point-to-Point Protocol (MLPPP), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), and Cisco Intelligent Services Gateway (ISG). Ethernet and ATM aggregation solutions are supported for TR-101 and TR-59 broadband architectures, making the Cisco 10000 Series Router an ideal transition platform to entertainment-grade networking.
• Carrier-class high availability:
– With its carrier-class high availability, the Cisco 10000 Series minimizes costly network outages and maximizes customer satisfaction.
– The Cisco 10000 Series is designed for nonstop performance. Features include: full hardware redundancy, online insertion and removal (OIR), Cisco Route Processor Redundancy Plus (RPR+), Cisco Stateful Switchover (SSO), Cisco Nonstop Forwarding (NSF), Nonstop Routing (NSR), In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU), and Automatic Protection Switching (APS). Support for MPLS high availability and broadband high availability makes the Cisco 10000 Series a premier carrier-class platform.
• Maximum scalability:
– With an 8-slot chassis that can hold as many as 16 line cards, the Cisco 10000 Series allows service providers to take full advantage of their current investments by enabling network growth while minimizing network complexity.
• Maximum flexibility:
– The Cisco 10000 Series supports thousands of DS-0, DS-1, and E1 connections in a single system, helping service providers increase their customer base. For broadband applications, the Cisco 10000 Series supports up to 61,500 subscribers in a single system. Because the Cisco 10000 Series supports Frame Relay, ATM, leased-line, and broadband aggregation in a single platform, customers can provision multiple types of services to the end user without having to maintain multiple edge devices.
• IP Next-Generation Network (NGN) subscriber management:
– The Cisco ISG software feature set is a next-generation policy and subscriber management solution that delivers dynamic session awareness. ISG supports IP, Ethernet, ATM, MPLS, and VPN architectures, whether the business model is for retail, wholesale, or business services. ISG helps enable zero-touch provisioning, and provides the per-flow granularity and dynamic control required for triple-play services. It is standards-based for multivendor deployments. With RADIUS Change of Authorization (RFC 3576), subscriber profiles can be changed dynamically based on user self-management (through a Web portal) or through an operations support system (OSS) process. It can act as a policy server imbedded in the network, or interact with centralized policy management systems.
