About Cisco 10000 Edge Service Router
The Cisco 10000 ESR is based on Cisco's revolutionary Parallel eXpress Forwarding (PXF) architecture. PXF utilizes Cisco's latest parallel processing technology to deliver wire speed performance for a broad set of Cisco IOS advanced IP services. The combination of a rich IOS feature set and PXF performance enables ISPs to increase revenues by deploying value-added services such as Premium Internet Access to customers in volume. The highly-scalable router delivers maximum expandability to handle growing customer populations and expanded service offerings. In addition, the Cisco 10000 ESR and its breakthrough architecture have been designed for maximum reliability and availability to support customers' ever-increasing dependence on network-based services.
The Channelized STM1 module adds E1/DS0 connectivity to the already impressive list of interfaces supported by the Cisco 10000 ESR, including Channelized T3 and Channelized OC12 connections. The Channelized STM1 E1/DS0 module will be capable of supporting a staggering 9072 E1 connections per seven foot rack. And the Cisco OC12 ATM module now offers service providers the choice to aggregate these high density E1 circuits into their ATM core network. Building on the success of this platform in the US, these two new interfaces will now allow service providers worldwide the capability to offer IP services --without sacrificing performance.
