The Cisco Fast Ethernet SPAs are available on high-end Cisco routing platforms, offering the benefits of network scalability with lower initial costs and easy upgrades. The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio continues the company's focus on investment protection along with consistent feature support, broad interface availability, and the latest technology. The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio allows deployment of different interfaces (packet over SONET/SDH [POS], ATM, Ethernet, etc.) on the same interface processor.
Fast Ethernet interfaces are commonly used to interconnect routers or other devices within a central office or data center or in a metropolitan-area network (MAN). With Cisco Fast Ethernet SPAs, users can mix and match SPA ports with other types of interfaces in the same slot. Each SPA provides standards-based Fast Ethernet implementation for compatibility and interoperability.
The Cisco Fast Ethernet SPAs can be used in any combination of the following applications:
• Residential triple-play services
• Metro Ethernet services
• Converged residential and business services
• Internet peering
• Inter- and intra-point of presence (POP) aggregation
