The Cisco 10000 Series Four-Port OC-3c/STM-1c Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) line card provides both the performance and the density to scale networks efficiently and reliably. It features a high-performance segmentation and reassembly (SAR), adapted for various applications including advanced traffic management, cell scheduling, and integrated buffer management. By mapping IP class of service (CoS) to ATM quality of service (QoS) on the Cisco 10000 Series ATM line cards, the flow of mission-critical data can be effectively managed across heterogeneous IP and ATM networks.
•Line-rate OC-3c/STM-1c performance—The OC-3c/STM-1c ATM module is a standards-based ATM solution supporting line-rate (155-Mbps) performance at 64-byte packets that allows Internet service providers (ISPs) to offer line-rate Internet access via ATM virtual circuits.
•Per-virtual circuit and per-virtual path traffic shaping—The Cisco 10000 Series OC-3c/STM-1c ATM Module supports both per-virtual circuit and per-virtual path traffic shaping, providing flexibility and control over every virtual circuit and virtual path configured. Per-virtual circuit and per-virtual path traffic shaping allows bursts of traffic to conform to a predetermined contract, ensuring that excessive traffic from one virtual circuit does not incur data loss on other virtual circuits. This function is very important when connecting to an ATM WAN or public ATM network, where ATM switches may discard excessive traffic at the point of ingress.
•Standards-based ATM implementation for interoperability—The OC-3c/STM-1c ATM module is a standards-based ATM interface, allowing customers to integrate the Cisco 10000 Series into existing ATM networks. By implementing a standards-based version of ATM, Cisco ensures that customers will be able to easily and quickly integrate the Cisco 10000 Series into their current ATM network. Further, by using standard Operations, Administration, and Management (OA&M) F4 and F5, customers will enjoy lower management and administrative expenses and improved overall manageability.
