The innovative system architecture combines the Cisco Silicon Packet Processor, the first programmable 40-Gbps application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), with the Cisco Service Separation Architecture for service flexibility and speed to service. The Cisco CRS-1 marks a new era in carrier IP Communications by powering the foundation for network and service convergence today while protecting investments for decades to come (Figure 1).
This data sheet provides detailed product specifications for the Cisco CRS-1 24-Slot Fabric-Card Chassis (FCC). This FCC is an important element of the Cisco CRS-1 Multichassis System because it contains the second-stage switching fabric that interconnects multiple Cisco CRS-1 16-slot single-shelf systems. The interconnectivity of FCCs and Cisco CRS-1 16-slot single-shelf systems allows the Cisco CRS-1 to gracefully scale from 1.2 to 92 Tbps of system capacity. The initial multichassis system consists of two Cisco CRS-1 16-slot single-shelf systems and one FCC.
