Cisco UBR7200-NPE-G2

Cisco uBR7200-NPE-G2 Network Processing Engine Overview



Performance of up to 1.3 Million Packets per Second (Mpps) in Cisco Express Forwarding Switching

• Up to 2x performance improvement compared to uBR7200-NPE-G1
• Dramatically increases the performance and scalability of the Cisco uBR7246VXR Series in supporting the number of DOCSIS devices and data forwarding performance, specifically in reference to the number of VoIP sessions


• Enables maximum investment protection through the ability to upgrade processors incrementally

Three Fixed Gigabit Ethernet Ports (10/100/1000-Mbps Copper or Small Form-Factor Pluggable Optics [SFP])

• Maximizes LAN connectivity and performance without taking up bandwidth points or mid-plane capacity

Built-in I/O Function (Compact Flash Memory, Console Port, Auxiliary Port, and Bootflash Memory)

• Reduces cost as customers no longer need to use the external I/O controller. An I/O controller can still be used if a customer considers it necessary. The Cisco uBR7200-NPE-G2 is supported with the Cisco uBR7246VXR Series I/O controllers with the following part numbers: C7200-I/O-2FE, and C7200-I/O-GE+E.

Support for Third Peripheral-Component-Interconnect (PCI) Bus to the I/O Controller Slot

• Frees the current I/O controller ports from bandwidth allocation, allowing two PCI buses to be dedicated to the port adapter slots

1 GB of DRAM Default Memory; Optional upgrade to 2 GB DRAM

• Delivers the maximum amount of default memory when compared to existing Cisco uBR7246VXR Series network processing engines, offering the following benefits:
• Supports more routes and routing tables
• Supports more Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) virtual routing and forwarding instances (VRFs)
• Enables higher scalability on features such as NetFlow, Network Address Translation (NAT), access control lists (ACLs), and more
• Supports more sessions for broadband aggregation

Dedicated Management port for 10/100-Mbps Ethernet

• Reduces costs and protects the port density of the chassis
• Increases security by separating management traffic from data plane traffic

Digital Diagnostics on SFP Interfaces (software support will be provided in future releases)

• Provides a powerful tool to monitor multiple manageable parameters, including optical transmit and receive power, voltage and temperature measurement, and factory parameters

Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) on Copper Interfaces (software support will be provided in future releases)

• Provides an effective method of isolating fault at the remote end of the copper wire by monitoring reflected pulsed signals

Two USB Ports (software support will be provided in future releases)

• Provides large, removable storage for files

Compatible Software Features

The Cisco uBR7200-NPE-G2 is compatible with all of the applicable new uBR7246VXR software features to be delivered in the 12.2 SB software release that supports this new hardware. Some of these features include:

• IPv6 Cable Modem Management


• Multicast VPN

• DOCSIS Multicast QoS Support

• Service Independent Intercept Enhancements

The Cisco uBR7200-NPE-G2 has a high performance processor to perform data forwarding as well as other network protocols processing. This additional processing capacity on the uBR7200-NPE-G2, as compared to that of the uBR7200-NPE-G1, will provide tremendous potential for customers to acquire new software functionality without requiring a hardware upgrade.
