The Cisco 10000 Series OC-48c/STM-16 Packet over SONET/SDH Line Card is a high-performance interface that provides superior connectivity options from the Cisco 10000 Series to the core network. Packet over SONET/SDH (POS) enables Internet service providers (ISPs) to substantially increase the data load over their optical transport infrastructure. With its line-rate OC-48c/STM-16 capacity (2.488 Gbps), the Cisco 10000 Series OC-48c/STM-16 POS Line Card provides a powerful combination of service, scalability, and flexibility with the industry's broadest set of Layer 3 features.
The Cisco 10000 Series OC-48c/STM-16 POS Line Card is a high-capacity, high-performance interface that provides ISPs with an opportunity to use their existing fiber plant to realize a significant increase in bandwidth, coupled with industry-leading network resiliency and fault tolerance. This increased interface capacity enables ISPs to provide new levels of cost-effective IP services to their expanding customer base by more efficiently using existing resources.
The Cisco 10000 Series OC-48c/STM-16 POS Line Card supports OC-48c/STM-16 bandwidth of 2.488 Gbps of POS traffic. The full-height line card may be used in any line-card slot in the Cisco 10000 Series chassis. The OC-48c/STM-16 POS line card is a standard implementation of POS. It supports advanced features such as SONET automatic protection switching (APS), SDH multiplex section protection (MSP), alarm processing, and performance monitoring, and is fully compatible with standards-based POS implementations on platforms, including the Cisco 12000 Series and the Cisco 7600 Series. Note that the hardware is Spatial Reuse Protocol (SRP) ready, but SRP functions are currently not supported on the platform.
