NCS 1000 Series (Network Convergence System)

NCS 1000

As data center capacity continues to grow rapidly the transition to 100 gig Ethernet is imminent and there is a persistent need for complete automation. The NCS 1000 is the industry’s first DWDM transport platform that can deliver 1Tbps or 2Tb duplex per rack unit.

The NCS 1000 solution combines a number of key innovations in a unique mechanical design.250G DWDM line rate, enabling CFP2 and Cisco’s iOS XR operating system. It can provide scale operational efficiency using 96 channels of 250G, the system can scale up to 24Tbps in a conventional 50GHz DWDM system.

 

This capacity can be delivered in 24RU of space at less than 0.4w per Gigabit resulting in a 60% reduction in space and power compared to legacy core in solutions.

Cisco NCS 1000 can also offer flexibility by delivering 10,40 and 100G Ethernet on the same box. It also provides 100,200 and 250G DWM for metro to long-haul transport options. With CFP2 based optics, exceptional thermal efficiency but also “Pay-As-You-Grow” model can be achieved.

Automation with iOS XR software enables to automate installation using NetBoot, automate configuration through YANG models or a range of different transport and encoding options and automate monitoring through streaming telemetry.

 

All of this is achieved without losing simplicity and resiliency for those who prefer CLI, a simple CLI interface is provided. A headless mode of operation and multiple hard disks are supported to provide resiliency against controller card failures LLDP snooping and a locator beacon are supported to simplify connectivity verification in the data center.

The NCS 1000 has data center operators simplify and automate operations while scaling with extreme flexibility resulting in new benchmarks of possible bid.

Models and Features:

The Cisco NCS 1001 is a 1RU system that is capable of supporting up to three pluggable modules. The modules can be amplifiers or protection switch modules. The system operates on a Linux kernel with the carrier-class 64-bit Cisco IOS® XR Software in a Linux container (LxC) and XR system admin plane in a separate LxC.

The Cisco NCS 1002 and 1003 is mechanically optimized for controlled operational environments. At 2 RU, the system supports up to 2Tbps of client and 2Tbps of trunk traffic. The system uses a Linux kernel with the 64-bit IOS XR OS in a Linux Container (LxC) and admin plane operating in a separate LxC.

The Cisco NCS 1004 is a 2RU system, mechanically optimized to maximize capacity at minimum space and power footprint. The NCS 1004 has two redundant and field replaceable AC & DC power supply units and three redundant and field replaceable fans. It also provides a field replaceable controller card. The NCS 1004 has one main SSD removable from CPU controller unit which is field replaceable. In addition, a local non-removeable backup SSD is provided to store backup XR images and system customer configuration. Each NCS 1004 chassis provide four-line card slots.
