Answered Question
Sep 15th, 2008

I have confussion.I want to learn about IOS-XR and want to buy a router that runs it. I read documentation that 12000 XR router and run XR software. My question is that does 12000 come in 2 flavors, 12000 and 12000 XR? which one should i get?

also when I look at the download center, i do not see any place where it says download code for 12000 XR, but i see a place where it days download XR software, but the file name has CRS-1 in it. can the same XR code run on 12000 XR as well.

I have this problem too.

Hi Parwal

ARAIK the support starts from 12008 with the required upgrade so i dont think your chassis can support IOS XR.
