The Cisco 7304 provides numerous connectivity options, from DS0 to Gigabit Ethernet and OC-48/STM-16, in an architecture engineered for high availability and multiprotocol support. With built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports and support for Cisco 7200 Series port adapters, the Cisco 7304 is a leading-edge, flexible, feature-rich router for the network edge.
The Cisco 7304 platform offers two processor options: the NPE-G100 general-purpose processor (approximately 1 mpps) optimized for flexible feature support, and the high-performance NSE-100 (approximately 3.5 mpps) that delivers an evolving set of application-specific, hardware-accelerated IP services through Cisco Parallel Express Forwarding (PXF) technology.
The Cisco 7304 is a perfect fit at the edge, where service provider and enterprise networks meet. It provides the option of either the NPE-G100 or the NSE-100 for high-performance routing with a breadth of high-touch IP services, numerous interfaces, and robust, high-availability design.
