Cisco 7604 Router
The Cisco 7604 Router is a compact, high-performance router designed in a 4-slot form factor for deployment at the network edge, where robust performance and IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) services are necessary to meet the requirements of both enterprises and service providers. It enables Carrier Ethernet service providers to deploy an advanced network infrastructure that supports a range of IP video and triple-play (voice, video, and data) system applications in both the residential and business services markets. The Cisco 7604 also delivers WAN and metropolitan-area network (MAN) networking solutions at the enterprise edge.
With a powerful combination of speed and services in a compact form factor, the Cisco 7604 is an outstanding choice for multiple applications. Whether deployed as a mobile Radio Access Network (RAN) preaggregation device, as a device for peering, as a residential broadband services aggregator, or as a device for Metro Ethernet aggregation and uplink, the Cisco 7604 meets requirements for redundancy, high availability, and rack density. In the point-of-presence (POP) enterprise edge or the metropolitan network edge, the Cisco 7604 sets new standards as part of the industry-leading Cisco 7600 Series Routers.
With a forwarding rate of up to 144-Mpps distributed and 320-Gbps total throughput, the Cisco 7604 provides performance and reliability with options for redundant route processors and power supplies. The inclusion of two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 with the Multilayer Switch Feature Card 3 (MSFC-3) or the new Cisco Route Switch Processor 720 (RSP 720) with the MSFC-4 used in the Cisco 7604 eliminates the need for a line-card slot for uplink ports. The result of this design is more efficient use of available line-card slots and increased deployment flexibility. Four Gigabit Ethernet ports are available for use in dual-route processor configurations.
