OCx Channelization

Unanswered Question
Feb 3rd, 2010

We're looking at taking a mass of T1 crkts and channel towards OCx (probably OC12). This could be be either 7600 or GSR platform. Can anyone point me to some investigative links or make a recommendation on their current use of a said Cisco product?

Please ask if this isn't clear. Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

Well, thats what they are built for. More experience with the 76xx than the GSR,

I had no router specific performance issues running multiple OC-48's on a 7600.

Thanks vmiller for the reply. I need to detail more....

We have many 7600s with Flexwan / PC-MC-2T3+ combos. We also have 7600s and GSRs with SIP/SPA combos. I'm looking for a solution to take the Flexwan blades and consolidate many of these CT3s into something that might be a channelized OC12, channelized OC48, or other such beast. Since we have both 7600 (7604, 7606, 7609) and GSR platforms, including SIPs for both, I didn't want to limit any solutions to one platform.

I did see a channelized OC12 on Cisco site, but it appeared to be an OSM flavor. I fear that my be close to EOS/EOL.

Hope this is more clear.

A lot depends on how these links are delivered to you. If they are coming in as

CT-3's you "might" be able to aggregate with some flavor of 15454.

Or were you considering aggregating at one router and handing off the aggregated link

to another router?
