Cisco NCS 5000 Series

Cloud Scale for Metro Aggregation Networks

The Cisco Network Convergence System 5000 Series offers a high-density, small-form-factor MPLS aggregation router for metro aggregation. It is designed to economically scale large enterprise, over-the-top (OTT), and service provider data center networking architectures.

Product Overview

The Cisco NCS 5000 Series is an extension to Cisco’s routing platform portfolio, enabling service providers and MPLS-enabled data center architectures to offer elastic networks with improved business agility and simplified operations to deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services.
It can also operate as an extension shelf of Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers using network virtualization (NV) technology, consolidating multiple layers in the network and dramatically reducing operational costs.

The Cisco NCS 5001 and NCS 5002 are small form-factor dense GE/10GE aggregation systems. Powered by industry leading routing operation system Cisco IOS XR Software, the system also offers rich functions such as third party application hosting, machine-to-machine interface, telemetry, and flexible package delivery.
