The FlexWAN module for the Cisco 7600 Series Router and Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch enables high-performance, intelligent LAN, WAN, and metropolitan-area network (MAN) service scalability for both enterprises and service providers. The FlexWAN module supports a variety of clear-channel and Channelized WAN interfaces, including T1/E1, T3/E3, High-Speed Serial Interface (HSSI), T3/E3 ATM, OC-3 ATM, and OC-3 packet over SONET (POS) with the ability to directly interface with high-speed SONET equipment for metropolitan-area networking.
The FlexWAN module accepts up to two WAN port adapters commonly used with the Cisco 7200 and 7500 series routers, providing an easy migration path for existing WAN and MAN networks. The innovative architecture is designed to deliver flexible media and enable distributed intelligent network services for next-generation applications.
The ability to consolidate LAN, WAN, and MAN services onto the same platform lowers the total cost of ownership of the network through simplified design and ease of network management, maintenance, and training.
The FlexWAN module for the Cisco 7600 and Cisco Catalyst 6500 series simplifies network design and deployment by allowing consolidation of LAN, WAN, and MAN interfaces into a single, highly scalable platform. The Cisco 7600 and Cisco Catalyst 6500 series deliver peerless flexibility, supporting any mix of media or traffic within a common system, software, and chassis, thereby easing and simplifying network configuration and installation tasks, and speeding service delivery. Converged data, voice, and video traffic can be transported transparently from end to end across an interconnected LAN, WAN, or MAN, using the ability of the Cisco 7600 and the Cisco Catalyst 6500 series to manage thousands of simultaneous traffic flows at wire speed with granular quality-of-service (QoS) and security controlA hallmark of the Cisco 7600 and the Cisco Catalyst 6500 series is the flexibility to support multiple applications on the same platform, delivering "no-compromise" convergence for a wide range of applications, including wiring closet, data center, metropolitan (metro), and WAN edge. The FlexWAN module provides the Cisco 7600 and Cisco Catalyst 6500 series the ability to connect a broad range of WANs and MANs, including those based on point-to-point circuits, Frame Relay, Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC), ATM, or POS. Platform Gigabit Ethernet support allows service extension all the way from the data center to the WAN edge. Higher-layer applications can easily be layered upon this fused, end-to-end network to allow intelligent data, voice, and video integration—all on the same platform to guarantee interoperable, easy-to-use application delivery and control.
