As of now we use 1 port 10GE card only (Cisco 1-Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet LAN/WAN-PHY SPA) in our CRS connects to Core backbone.
We might need 10GE for access now to provide 10GE to PE ( pure ethernet not any optical technology).
I was trying to find out the line card support more 10GE port density for this purpose. Cisco support 8 port 10GE module but that is not SPA rather normal Ethernet card (Cisco CRS-1 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Interface Module). How is it diff than SPA to use for PE-P - MPLS link includes LSP, Qos etc feature....
Can I use this 8 port 10GE card for the above puropse ? Important thing there should not be any major limitation
