The Cisco® XR 12000 Series and Cisco 12000 Series routers compose a portfolio of intelligent routing solutions that scale from 2.5- to n x10 Gbps capacity per slot, enabling carrier-class IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks and accelerating the evolution to IP Next-Generation Networks. Built upon a foundation of investment protection, this portfolio delivers up to 1.28-terabits-per-second switching capacity with wire-speed feature performance, scalability, and graceful hardware and software upgrade paths.
This portfolio of routers delivers capacity and services with its fully distributed forwarding architecture and high-efficiency crossbar switch fabric. The combination of a centralized scheduler and unique virtual output queuing (VOQ) technology is aimed at maximizing the use of the switch fabric bandwidth, minimizing latency, and providing nonblocking performance. Cisco Systems® uses the latest in high-performance application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology to provide line-rate forwarding with an extensive feature set, while maintaining the strict control of jitter and latency required for real-time services. Offering a comprehensive set of quality-of-service (QoS), IP/MPLS, and high-availability features, the Cisco XR 12000 Series and 12000 Series routers can help ensure maximum bandwidth usage and traffic differentiation while meeting even the strictest customer service-level agreements (SLAs).
The Cisco XR 12000 Series and 12000 Series routers use Cisco IOS® XR Software and Cisco IOS Software, respectively, to deliver numerous service possibilities for network operators. With the addition of the Cisco XR 12000 Series to its high-end routing product lines, Cisco Systems gives providers a graceful upgrade path for their installed base of Cisco 12000 Series routers as they transition toward a converged IP Next-Generation Network infrastructure.
