Welcome to the Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS) single-chassis and multichassis router hardware design and architecture with Cisco experts Vinay Kumar, Sudhir Kumar, and Raj Pathak.
CRS routers are modular and distributed core routers developed by Cisco that enable service providers to deliver data, voice, and video services over a scalable IP next-generation network infrastructure. Today, CRS is one of the most trusted devices in the core of the service provider network and a proven architecture that has delivered 10 times the capacity over a period of 10 years. Our three experts will cover the difference between CRS single-chassis and multichassis routers. They will also answer your questions about how CRS routers work and help in easily scaling the networks and different components of the CRS routers.
