IT solutions

Product Overview

The Cisco® Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 Series Routers offer exceptional network agility, packet optical convergence, and petabit per second system scale. The Cisco NCS 6000 Series also facilitates the build-out of the next-generation core to support elastic capacity at a low TCO and to deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services.

Using the industry-leading Cisco IOS® XR operating system, running in a virtualized environment, the Cisco NCS 6000 Series advances the concept of distributed routing and virtualization. Using virtualized Cisco IOS XR, the Cisco NCS 6000 Series brings new levels of programmability and virtualization to increase application service offerings, accelerate provisioning, and make the network more cost effective.

The Cisco NCS 6000 Series is powered by the Cisco nPower family of Network Processor Units (NPU). Cisco nPower devices are state-of-the-art programmable forwarding ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuit), designed to deliver the industry’s first zero-packet loss (ZPL) and zero-topology loss (ZTL) software upgrade capability.

The Cisco NCS 6000 Series is engineered for environmental efficiency by offering an adaptable power-consumption model for its ASICs, and the use of revolutionary CMOS photonics technology. With these technologies together, the Cisco NCS 6000 Series can offer the most power-efficient footprint in the service provider routing space.
