  • Details

    The Cisco® I-Flex approach combines shared port adapters (SPAs) and SPA interface processors (SIPs), providing an extensible design that enables service prioritization for data, voice, and video services. Enterprise and service provider customers can take advantage of improved slot economics resulting from modular port adapters that are interchangeable across Cisco routing platforms. The I-Flex design maximizes connectivity options and offers superior service intelligence through programmable interface processors that deliver line-rate performance. I-Flex enhances speed-to-service revenue and provides a rich set of quality of service (QoS) features for premium service delivery while effectively reducing the overall cost of ownership. This data sheet contains the specifications for the Cisco 2-Port and 4-Port OC-3c/STM-1c POS SPAs (Cisco 2- and 4-Port OC-3 POS SPAs; refer to Figure 1).

    Figure 1. Cisco 2- and 4-Port OC-3 POS SPAs

    Product Overview

    The Cisco 2- and 4-Port OC-3 POS SPAs are available on high-end Cisco routing platforms, offering the benefits of network scalability with lower initial costs and easy upgrades. The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio continues Cisco's focus on investment protection along with consistent feature support, broad interface availability, and the latest technology. The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio allows deployment of different interfaces (packet over SONET/SDH [POS], ATM, Ethernet, etc.) on the same interface processor.
    The Cisco 2- and 4-Port OC-3 POS SPAs are available with two or four Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) interfaces. SFP modules are available in multiple optical reaches from 2 to 80 kilometers (km).

    Key Features and Benefits

    The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio offers many advantages, including:

    • Highly modular, flexible, intelligent interface processors

    – Superior flexibility, providing a combination of interface types on the same interface processor for consistent services, independent of access technology.

    – Pioneering programmable interface processors that provide flexibility for the service diversity required in next-generation networks.

    – Innovative design that supports intelligent service delivery without compromising on performance.

    • Increased speed to service revenue

    – The scalable, programmable Cisco architecture extended to 10 Gbps dramatically improves customer density, increasing potential revenue per platform.

    – Interface breadth (copper, channelized, POS, ATM, and Ethernet) on a modular interface processor allows service providers to roll out new services more quickly, helping ensure that all customers large and small receive consistent, secure, and guaranteed services.

    – High-density SFP interfaces are featured for high-port-count applications with reach flexibility. Future optical technology improvements can be adopted using existing SPAs.

    • Dramatically improved return on your routing investment

    – Improved slot economics and increased density reduce capital expenditures (CapEx).

    – The ability to easily add new interfaces as they are needed enables a "pay-as-you-grow" business model.

    – SPAs are shared across multiple platforms, and can be easily moved from one to another, providing consistent feature support, accelerated product delivery, and a significant reduction in operating expenses (OpEx) through common sparing as service needs change.
