Release Notes for Cisco 7000 Family for Cisco  IOS Release 12.0  XE

January 18, 1999

These release notes describe the features for the Cisco 7000 family of routers that support Cisco  IOS Release 12.0(2)XE. Cisco  IOS Release 12.0  XE is based on Cisco IOS Release 12.0  T.

Use these release notes in conjunction with the Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM. All features supported in Release 12.0 and Release 12.0 T are supported in Release 12.0 XE.

In addition to the caveats listed in "Important Notes" section of this document, the software caveats that apply to Release 12.0 and Release 12.0 T also apply to Release 12.0 XE. For information on other caveats that might apply to Cisco IOS Release 12.0  XE, the caveats documents for Release 12.0 and Release 12.0T  are located on CCO and on the Documentation CD-ROM.

Contents

These release notes discuss the following topics:

Introduction

Cisco Systems provides several software release "trains" based on a single version of Cisco IOS software. Maintenance releases of the Major train software (such as 12.0) deliver fixes to software defects only, thus providing the most stable software for your network, for the features you need. In addition to the Major train, there are Early Deployment (ED) trains. One ED train---Release  12.0  XE---delivers both fixes to software defects and support for new Cisco platforms and new features.

Detailed software configuration information on the new features and Cisco IOS commands supported by Release 12.0  XE are available on the Documentation CD-ROM and on the Web at http://www.cisco.com.  For more information, refer to the "Related Documentation" section later in this document.

These release notes do not describe features that are available in Release  12.0 or 12.0  T. For information about features in Release  12.0, refer to the Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 . For information about features in Release 12.0  T, refer to the "Feature Set Tables" section later in this document.

Cisco IOS Early Deployment Release 12.0(2)XE is synched from 12.0(2.5)T. The 12.0(2)XE will be merged into 12.0(3)T. All maintenance updates will be placed into Release 12.0(3)T and future 12.0T maintenance releases. No maintenance updates will be placed in 12.0(2)XE. For more information about the Cisco IOS software release process, see the Types of Cisco IOS Software Releases: Product Bulletin #537  located on CCO and on the Documentation CD-ROM.

System Requirements

This section describes the system requirements for Release 12.0  XE and includes the following sections:

Memory Requirements

Table 1 describes the memory requirements for the feature sets for the Cisco  7000 family of routers supported by Cisco IOS Release 12.0  XE.

Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco 7500 series routers, and Cisco  7000 series routers with the RSP7000 and RSP7000CI are shipped with a 16- or 20-MB Flash memory card. All feature sets for Cisco  7500 series and Cisco  7000 series routers with RSP7000 and RSP7000CI include VIP support.

Hardware Supported

Cisco IOS Release 12.0 XE supports the following platforms:


Note In this document, the term Cisco 7500/RSP series represents both the Cisco 7500 series and the Cisco 7000 series equipped with the RSP7000 and RSP7000CI.

Determining Your Software Release

To determine the version of Cisco IOS software currently running on the Cisco 7000 family of routers, log on to the router and use the show version EXEC command. The following is sample output from the show version command. The version number is indicated on the second line as shown below:

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) 7200 Software (C7200-JS-M), Version 12.0(2)XE, RELEASE SOFTWARE
 

Additional command output lines include more information, such as processor revision numbers, memory amounts, hardware IDs, and partition information.

Microcode Software

Table 2 lists the current microcode versions for the Cisco 7500/RSP series. Microcode software images are bundled with the system software image. Bundling eliminates the need to store separate microcode images. When the router starts, the system software unpacks the microcode software bundle and loads the proper software on all the interface processor boards. For more information on microcode, refer to the Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0  located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.


Note For information about the CIP microcode, refer to the Cisco document Channel Interface Processor Microcode Release Note and Microcode Upgrade Instructions  located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Feature Set Tables

The Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets (also called software images) depending on the platform. Each feature set contains a specific set of Cisco IOS features. Table 3 lists the Cisco IOS software feature sets available for the Cisco 7000 family of routers in Cisco IOS Release 12.0XE. Release 12.0XE supports the same feature sets as Release 12.0 and 12.0T, but it might also have new features supported by the Cisco 7000 family of routers. Table 4 through Table 7 list the features supported by each feature set for each platform. For a list of new features supported by Cisco IOS Release 12.0XE, please refer to the "New and Changed Information" section of these release notes.

Cisco  IOS images with strong encryption (including, but not limited to, 56-bit DES) are subject to U.S. government export controls and have a limited distribution. Images to be installed outside the U.S. require an export license. Customer orders may be denied or subject to delay due to U.S. government regulations. Contact your sales representative or distributor for more information, or send e-mail to export@cisco.com.


Note This feature set table contains only a selected list of features based on Release 12.0 and 12.0T. This table is not a cumulative or complete list of all the features in each image. For a list of new features for Release 12.0XE, refer to the "New and Changed Information" section later in this document.

Note In addition to the feature sets available for the Cisco 7000 family, some features are available through a special license. For example, NetFlow is only available if you purchase a NetFlow Switching license. For information on features that require a special license, refer to the Pricing Tool  available on CCO under Products and Ordering.

New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new features supported by the Cisco 7000 family of routers in Cisco  IOS  Release  12.0  XE.

New Features in Release 12.0(2)XE

The following new features are supported by the Cisco 7000 family of routers in Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)XE. For easy online access, the feature modules are linked to the applicable Cisco  IOS feature module if one exists. Click on the link to open the feature module.

Gigabit Ethernet Interface Processor

The Gigabit Ethernet Interface Processor (GEIP)  is a single-port fixed configuration interface processor that, when combined with the appropriate optical fiber cable, provides one 1000-Mbps Gigabit Ethernet interface that complies with IEEE 802.032 standards. The Gigabit Ethernet interface operates in full-duplex mode at 1000 Mbps in each direction: transmit (TX) and receive (RX).

The GEIP is available on all Cisco 7500 series routers and Cisco 7000 series routers with the 7000 Series Route Switch Processor (RSP7000) and 7000 Series Chassis Interface (RSP7000CI).

An increased maximum Ethernet packet size of 1500 takes advantage of increased bandwidth and the full-duplex point-to-point link. An interface command mtu (maximum transmission unit) allows users to specify an MTU size up to 16K (maximum supported by FX1000). The minimum allowable MTU size is 1500 bytes.

If the interface is configured with a fall-back option, the other port will be reconfigured to support a large packet when a switch-over occurs.

For more information on the GEIP, refer to the GEIP Installation and Configuration Notes .  

Cisco 7576 Router

The Cisco 7576 router  is the newest member of the Cisco 7500 series of routers, which consists of the 5-slot Cisco 7505, 7-slot Cisco 7507, and the 13-slot Cisco 7513. The Cisco 7576 router supports multiprotocol and multimedia routing and bridging with a wide variety of protocols and any combination of available electrical interfaces and media.

The Cisco 7576 router consists of two independent routers configured on a single backplane. This system is housed within the chassis footprint of a Cisco 7513 router. The dual independent router design effectively doubles the system bandwidth that exists in the Cisco 7513 router.

Network interfaces reside on interface processors that provide a direct connection between the two independent dual CyBuses located on the backplane of the Cisco 7576 router and your external networks. The two independent dual CyBuses facilitate the configuration of two independent routers on a single backplane. These routers are identified as router "A" and router "B."

There are bays for up to two AC-input or DC-input power supplies. The Cisco 7576 router will operate with one power supply. While a second power supply is not required, a second power supply allows load sharing and increased system availability.

For additional information on the Cisco 7576 router, refer to the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/core/cis7576/index.htm  

PA-MC-T3 Multi-Channel T3 Port Adapter

The PA-MC-E3 has one channelized E3 high-speed serial interface that provides access to services at E1 (2.048 Mbps) data rates, transferring data bidirectionally. This port adapter divides the E3 signal stream into 16 E1 lines that can be further divided to the 64-kbps level, up to a total of 128 channels. The PA-MC-E3 complies with CCITT/ITU G.703 physical layer standards and CCITT/ITU G.751 for E3, G.742 for E2, and G.704 and G.706 for E1 fault and alarm detection and response actions. The E1 lines can be configured as channelized, fractional, and unframed. PRI ISDN will be supported in a later release.

For more information on the PA-MC-E3 Multi-Channel E3 Synchronous Serial Port Adapter, refer to the PA-MC-E3 Multi-Channel E3 Synchronous Serial Port Adapter Installation and Configuration  publication.

PA-MC-8EI/120, PA-MC-4TI, PA-MC-8TI, and PA-MC-8DSX1 Multi-channel E1 and T1 ISDN PRI Port Adapters

The multi-channel E1 and T1 Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Primary Rate Interface (PRI) port adapters (PA-MC-8E1/120, PA-MC-4T1, PA-MC-8T1, and PA-MC-8DSX1)  are available on Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco 7500 series routers, and Cisco 7000 series routers with the 7000 Series Route Switch Processor (RSP7000) and 7000 Series Chassis Interface (RSP7000CI).

The PA-MC-8E1/120, PA-MC-4T1, and PA-MC-8T1 are single-wide modules that integrate channel service unit (CSU) functionality, data service unit (DSU) functionality, and E1 or T1 channel support into the Cisco router. The PA-MC-8DSX1 is a single-wide module that integrates DS1 DSU functionality and DS0 channel support into the Cisco router.

The PA-MC-8E1/120, PA-MC-4T1, PA-MC-8T1, and PA-MC-8DSX1 provide four or eight independent T1 (100-ohm) or E1 (120-ohm) connections via RJ-48C connectors. Each T1 or E1 port adapter can provide up to 128 separate full-duplex HDLC fractional or full T1 or E1 channels. Individual T1 connections of the DSX-1 version of the port adapters can connect to external CSUs, to digital cross connects (DACS), or to any other equipment that uses a DSX-1 interface.

For more information on these port adapters, refer to the following publications that accompany the hardware:

Multichannel DS1/PRI Port Adapter Installation and Configuration  
Multitchannel E1/PRI Port Adapter Installation and Configuration  

New Features in Release 12.0(1)XE

The following new features are supported by the Cisco 7000 family of routers in Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(1)XE. For easy online access, the feature modules are linked to the applicable Cisco  IOS feature module if one exists. Click on the link to open the feature module.

Cisco 7200 VXR Series Router

The Cisco  7200 VXR series routers are the newest multiservice members of the Cisco  7200 series routers. The Cisco  7200 VXR routers include the Cisco  7204VXR (4-slot router) and the Cisco  7206VXR (6-slot router). The Cisco  7200 VXR routers are designed to support gigabit capabilities and to improve data, voice, and video integration in both service provider and enterprise environments.

The Cisco  7200 VXR routers include a new midplane that incorporates an integrated time division multiplexing (TDM) switch and Multiservice Interchange (MIX) capability to support future voice applications. MIX interconnects on the midplane provide the ability to switch DS-0 time slots between multichannel T1 or E1 interfaces, much like a digital cross-connect or an add-drop multiplexer. This feature enables the Cisco 7200 VXR routers to switch DS-0 voice channels on a T1 or E1 interface from one voice processing port adapter to another voice processing port adapter. It also enables DS-0s to be switched through the Cisco  7200 VXR routers without any processing, a requirement in certain voice configurations.

The new Cisco  7200 VXR midplane also supports a high-speed network processing engine (NPE-300) to provide increased routing and process switching performance. The Cisco  7204VXR and Cisco  7206VXR both support the NPE-300 in addition to supporting all available network processing engines. The Cisco  7200 VXR routers with the NPE-300 installed support both 25-MHz and 50-MHz port adapter operation.

The Cisco  7206VXR supports high-density port adapters allowing up to 48 Ethernet or serial (clear-channel or channelized) ports, 24 Token Ring ports, 12 HSSI ports, or 6 Fast Ethernet or ATM ports. In multichannel networking environments, the Cisco  7200 VXR routers can support up to 48 channelized T1/E1 lines and up to 6 channelized T3/E3 lines.

For additional information on Cisco 7200VXR series routers, refer to the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/core/7200vx/72vxicg/index.htm  

NPE-300

The network processing engine NPE-300 is the newest and the highest performance processor in the family of network processing engines for the Cisco 7200 series routers. The NPE-300 performs at a rate of approximately 300,000 packets per second (pps) in Fast Switching, a 50 percent increase over the NPE-200 performance.

The NPE-300 uses a high-performance 262.5-MHz R7000 RISC processor and can support up to 256 MB of memory providing superior performance for both enterprise and service provider applications that require processor-intensive services. Network layer services such as traffic management, security, and QoS benefit significantly from the high performance of NPE-300.

A Cisco  7200 VXR router equipped with an NPE-300 can support up to six high-speed port adapters and can also support higher-speed port adapter interfaces including Gigabit Ethernet and OC-12 ATM. The NPE-300 uses SDRAM for storing all packets received or sent from network interfaces. The SDRAM also stores routing tables and network accounting applications. There are two independent SDRAM memory arrays in the system that allow concurrent access by port adapters and the processor. The NPE-300 can be configured with up to 256 MB of processor and packet memory, which is double the 128 MB memory limit on the NPE-200.
