Cisco 7200 VXR Product Overview
This chapter provides physical and functional overviews of the Cisco 7200 VXR routers. Descriptions
and examples of software commands are included when they are necessary for replacing, installing,
configuring, or maintaining the router hardware.
The following sections describe router hardware, major components, and functions of hardware-related
features:
Before you install, operate, or service the system, read the Site Preparation and Safety Guide . This
Warning
guide contains important safety information you should know before working with the system.

Physical Description

The Cisco 7200 VXR 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 incorporate an integrated Multiservice Interchange (MIX) capability to
support future voice applications. MIX interconnections 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 Cisco 7200 VXR routers support the high-speed network processing engine, NPE-G1, as well as the
network services engine (NSE-1) and all other available network processing engines. The NPE-G1
provides high speed performance with the BCM 1250 700-Mhz processor and supports three Gigabit
Ethernet interfaces with no additional bandwidth requirements. The NSE-1 is a combination of a

  • Page 4: Cisco 7204Vxr Overview

    Cisco 7204VXR midplane provides increased support for multiple high-bandwidth port adapters. The Cisco 7204VXR has four slots (slot 1 through slot 4) for port adapters, one slot for an input/output (I/O) controller, and one slot for a network processing engine or network services engine. You can place the port adapters in any of the four available slots.
  • Page 5 The rear of the Cisco 7204VXR router provides access to the network processing engine or network services engine and up to two power supplies. (See Figure 1-2.)
  • Page 6 The power supply has the router’s main power switch and either an AC-input power receptacle or a hardwired DC-input power cable (depending on the type of installed power supply). Do not mix power supplies in the Cisco 7204VXR. In dual power supply router configurations, both Caution power supplies must be of the same type (two AC-input power supplies or two DC-input power supplies).
