Converged, elastic, and scalable
The Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 helps enable superior network agility, packet optical convergence, and petabits-per-second system scale. It facilitates the Cisco Evolved Programmable Network to support virtualization and programmability at low total cost of ownership and delivers high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services to end users.
Features and benefits
Superior programmability and virtualization
Enhance application service offerings, increase provisioning speed, and optimize your network economics systemwide.
Innovations include Cisco nPower X1 NPUs, hardware-enabled true zero-packet, zero-topology loss ISSU, capability to scale beyond 1 petabit in a multichassis configuration, enhanced operations support, and packet-optical integration.
No service interruption
Intelligent distributed architecture and operationally efficient and redundant hardware help prevent interruption of service.
Increased environmental efficiency
Use an adaptable power consumption model for both the ASIC and CMOS photonics technology for the lowest carbon footprint in service provider routing today. Easily adapt each line card's power consumption to the number of ports used.
Optimal control-plane integration
Support control-plane integration between the router and optical extensions for configuration, monitoring, proactive redundancy, and scalability. Efficiently deliver cloud, video applications, and IoE capabilities to your customers.
