Cisco NCS 2000 Series
The Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 2000 simplifies network operations, reduce network costs, and make your network more dynamic and profitable. The NCS 2000 routers delivers agility, programmability, and massive scale across ultra-long-haul, metro, and enterprise optical networks.
These series of routers support intelligent dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) network that scales with operational ease. The Cisco Network Convergence System 2000 Series delivers agility with a touchless, flex-spectrum nLight reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) allowing service providers, governments, and enterprises to deploy a simple and intelligent DWDM network that could scale with operational purposes, and massive scale with 100- and 200-Gbps transponding and muxponding.
The Cisco NCS 2000 routers Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON) control-plane architecture enhances GMPLS capabilities with awareness of wavelength properties and optical impairments, offering dynamic service provisioning and restoration over a touchless DWDM network. Using a Cisco nLight Control Plane, the Cisco NCS 2000 Series intelligently interacts with packet layer devices, automating service provisioning, eliminating human error, and allowing advanced failure recovery.
