Cisco CPT Packet Transport Fabric 256G Fabric
Card with 4x10GE
The Cisco® Carrier Packet Transport (CPT) 200 and 600 sets the industry benchmark as a carrier-class converged
access and aggregation platform for Unified Packet Transport architectures. Cisco CPT product family represents an
exciting new paradigm in the world of Packet Transport with exceptional pay as you grow scalability, carrier-class
reliability, incredible flexibility, and TDM like ease of packet service provisioning, OAM and protection capability.
Product Overview
The Cisco CPT 200 and 600 Packet Transport Fabric (PTF) Line Card is a non-blocking switch fabric that delivers
economical, scalable, highly available, and Packet Transport services through a Unified Multiprotocol Label
Switching (MPLS) network layer. The PTF 256 Gigabit non-blocking switch fabric interconnects all Packet
Transport line cards over the backplane while providing scalability and high availability active-active architecture. In
addition, the PTF delivers four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be used for User-to-Network Interfaces, Networkto-Network Interfaces, and enables extension of GE interfaces through the CPT 50 satellite architecture. The PTF
enable the Cisco CPT 200 and 600 provide a robust MPLS-Transport Profile (TP) infrastructure to deliver scalable
Private Line, Business, Residential, Mobile Backhaul, Data Center, and Video Services (Figure 1).

Features and Benefits
Cisco CPT 200 and 600 PTF offers:
256 Gbps of non-blocking fully redundant switching fabric
Distributed forwarding and control planes for higher performance
Modularized system components in both hardware and software, isolating failure and faults to subsystem
and component
Hardware-based signaling for the fabric: support for near zero packet loss on switchover
Built-in redundancy in hardware components such as the route switch processor (RSP), switch fabric,
control-plane chassis control bus, and power supplies, thereby avoiding a single point of failure
4 port of 10Gbps Ethernet Interfaces that operate as UNI, NNI, & Satellite architecture extension
Hardware based Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) processing and control that provide transport
SLA detection times
With integrated synchronization circuitry and dedicated backplane timing traces for accessing the shelf controllers
Stratum-3 subsystem, the CPT 200 and 600 PTF Line Card provides standards-based line-interface functions for
delivering and deriving transport-class network timing, enabling support of network-synchronized services and
applications such as mobile backhaul and migration of TDM services.
The PTF also consolidating Unified MPLS transport and DWDM networking by integrating the G.709 OTN layer
with both I.7 and I.4 Enhanced Forward Error Correction (EFEC) into two 10GE ports. The G.709 provides visibility
into the DWDM transmission system to permit rapid detection and recovery from transmission-layer and DWDM
impairments and G.709 can also be configured for proactive protection if signal degradation is detected; it prevents
traffic loss and link outage. The Enhanced Forward Error Correction extends transmission-layer performance,
delivering extended performance over an amplified system without the cost of regeneration or transponders.

Flexible Ethernet services
● Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs): Ethernet services are supported using individual EVCs to carry
traffic belonging to a specific service type or end user through the network. EVC-based services can be
used in conjunction with MPLS-based L2VPNs and native Ethernet switching deployments.
● Flexible VLAN classification: VLAN classification into Ethernet flow points (EFPs) includes single-tagged
VLANs, double-tagged VLANs (QinQ and 802.1ad), contiguous VLAN ranges, and noncontiguous VLAN
● IEEE Bridging: The line cards support native bridging based on IEEE 802.1Q, IEEE 802.1ad, and QinQ
VLAN encapsulation mechanisms.
● Resilient Ethernet protocol (REP): The REP provides a resilient, fast-convergence mechanism for
aggregating and connecting to Ethernet-based access rings.
L2VPN services
● MPLS-TP Circuit with Ethernet over MPLS-TP (EoMPLS-TP): EoMPLS-TP transports Ethernet frames
across an MPLS-TP LSPs using pseudowires. Individual EFPs or traffic from an entire port can be
transported over an MPLS-TP network using pseudowires to an egress interface or sub-interface.
● Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS): These services are included in a class of VPN that supports the
connection of multiple sites in a single bridged domain over a MPLS-TP network. VPLS presents an
Ethernet interface to customers, simplifying the LAN and WAN boundary for service providers and
customers, and enabling rapid and flexible service provisioning, because the service bandwidth is not tied
to the physical interface. All services in a VPLS appear to be on the same LAN, regardless of location.
● Pseudowire redundancy: Pseudowire redundancy supports the definition of a backup pseudowire to
protect a primary pseudowire in case of failure.
● Multi-segment pseudowire stitching: Multi-segment pseudowire stitching is a method for interworking two
pseudowires together to form a cross-connect relationship.
● Span is a technique of replicating the ingress or egress frames in a specific port to a specified list of
destination ports. It is a monitoring feature used to monitor the traffic that is coming out of a port or an
EFP. The monitored traffic can be used to debug the network and can also be used by law enforcement
High Availability
● MPLS-TP: 1:1 MPLS TP LSP delivers protection switching for networks with sub-50ms APS switching for
link, node, path failures.
● Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD): BFD is a detection protocol that is designed to provide fast
forwarding path-failure detection times for all media types, encapsulations, topologies, and routing
● 802.3ad Link Aggregation Bundles: The line cards support a bundle of multiple links to provide added
resiliency and the ability to load balance traffic over multiple member links.
● IGMP v2 and v3 snooping: This Layer 2 mechanism efficiently tracks multicast membership on an
L2VPN network. Individual IGMP joins are snooped at the VLAN level or pseudowire level. In
residential broadband deployments, this scenario enables the network to send only channels that are
being watched to downstream users.
● Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR): MVR optimizes the control plane (IGMP) load between the router
and switch. MVR feature enables switch to aggregate different JOINs received on different VLANs
(from the receivers) into one JOIN (on a single VLAN, which could be the same as or different from the
VLANs of the receiving ports) towards the router. The switch then distributes (replicate) the received
content into the relevant ports.

Ethernet OA&M
● Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) Ethernet layer OAM protocol provides end-to-end provider edge
(PE to PE) and/or customer edge to customer edge (CE to CE) fault management. CFM includes proactive
connectivity monitoring, fault verification, and fault isolation for large Ethernet metropolitan-area networks
(MANs) and WANs. CFM is defined by IEEE 802.1ag standard.
● Ethernet Link OAM is a protocol for installing, monitoring, and troubleshooting Ethernet metropolitan-area
networks (MANs) and Ethernet WANs. It relies on an optional sublayer in the data link layer of the Open
Systems Interconnection (OSI) model. Ethernet Link OAM is defined by IEEE 802.3ah standard.
● Remote Ethernet Port Shutdown. The Remote Ethernet Port Shutdown replicates a local link failure over
an EoMPLS pseudowire to a remote link shutdown the remote Ethernet port down. Bot UNI interfaces
connected to the EoMPLS pseudowire will shutdown in the event of a pseudowire failure.
● ITU Y.1731 Fault Management and Delay Management. The ITU-T Y.1731 feature provides OAM
functions for fault management and performance monitoring functionality for service providers in a
large network. ITY Y.1731 includes Ethernet Alarm Indication Signal (ETH-AIS), Ethernet Remote
Defect Indication (ETH-RDI), Ethernet Locked Signal (ETH-LCK) functionality for fault detection and
isolation. ITU Y.1731 Delay Management (DM) provides a standard Ethernet PM function that includes
measurement of Ethernet frame delay and frame delay variation.
● IP/MPLS OA&M: LSP Ping & LSP Trace Route
● Pseudo-Wire: Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV), Ping, Traceroute, Static Status Message to
LDP Status Message Translation
