The Cisco 7606-S Router is a compact, high-performance router designed in a 6-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 7606-S 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 7606-S is an outstanding choice for multiple applications. Whether deployed as a high-speed WAN aggregator, as a device for peering, as a residential broadband services aggregator, or as a device for Metro Ethernet aggregation and uplink, the Cisco 7606-S meets requirements for redundancy, high availability, and rack density. In the point-of-presence (POP) data center or the metropolitan network, the Cisco 7606-S sets new standards as part of the industry-leading Cisco 7600 Series Routers.
With a forwarding rate of up to 240-Mpps distributed and 480-Gbps total throughput, the Cisco 7606-S 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 7606-S 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.
