Cisco IOS XRv Router

The Cisco XRv9000 router can cause better profitability, efficiency and agility for service providers in order to benefits from virtualization and programable network technologies to migrate certain services into the cloud. Cisco IOS XR software is purposely designed to carry classic network operating system offering high availability, out standing performance and maximum scalability and can be deployed as core, edge and interconnect applications. Cisco IOS XR software is available on Cisco ASR 9000, Cisco CRS and Cisco NCS 6000 systems. It is now also available as a stand-alone virtual router license, Cisco IOS XRv 9000 virtual router that can transparently add comprehensive features found in Cisco IOS XR and deploy hem as needed. This IOS XRv 9000 virtual router has the same interfaces and operational look as IOS XR platforms running customized hardware today. It leverages the same infrastructure that made Cisco IOS XR successful today. Also, it is only virtual router in the industry that offers process restorability and in-service software patching capability. Moreover, with XRv 9000 modular control in data plane architecture you can elastically up and down between multiple process records, sockets and even servers in a very efficient matter. The XRv 9000 has been optimized for virtual routing performance. It utilizes a higher forwarding information base for fast convergence times as well as a dedicated software-based traffic manager. These allows three levels of hierarchical QoS and 512000 queues and operating at 40Gbps per core. In addition, the software-based TCAM has optimized for lookup speeds.
