Product Line(s)

Supervisor Engine 2 acts as the control module for the new architecture built around the crossbar fabric that interconnects all the line cards with point-to-point, full-duplex serial connections. Supervisor Engine 2 is a key component of the CEF-based distributed forwarding architecture.??PFC2 is a critical component of the distributed forwarding architecture. With Supervisor Engine 2, both Layer 2 and Layer 3 performance is doubled to 30 Mpps. A Supervisor Engine 2 equipped with a PFC2 and an optional MSFC2 enables a distributed forwarding mechanism for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 that is an effective solution for service providers as well as large enterprises. In a CEF-based architecture, a FIB and an adjacency table is created for Layer 3 forwarding. This FIB has the most current routing information and eliminates the need for the first packet of every flow to be switched in software.
