Difference between C7200 and c7200p image

Hi,

I notice some of the IOS using c7200p-advipservicesk9-mz.124-24.T3.bin and c7200-advipservicesk9-mz.124-24.T3.bin,

We are running cisco 7206 VXR Router with NPE-G2. what is the benefit of using c7200p instead only c7200?

Re: Difference between C7200 and c7200p image

Hi,

Are you able to get the image "c7200-advipservicesk9-mz.124-24.T3.bin" for NPEG2 in Cisco FN? Because for NPEG2 Cisco FN will only list "c7200p-advipservicesk9-mz.124-24.T3.bin ". IOS of NPEG2 starts with "c7200p" for NPEG1 starts with "c7200". You can check the IOS for NPEG2 using cisco.com/go/fn.

HTH...

thanks

Re: Difference between C7200 and c7200p image

The difference between the two images is which NPE they are for. The NPE-G2 uses a PowerPC based CPU and requires the c7200p prefix. All other NPEs at this time use MIPS based processors. The same answer is also documented here:

Q. Is the Cisco NPE-G2 supported in the same cross-platform images as the Cisco NPE-G1?
A. No. Unlike other network processing engines, the Cisco NPE-G2 has its own software images with the prefix of "c7200p" in the file names. All other network processing engines are compatible with images with the prefix of "c7200" only. The Cisco NPE-G2 does not boot up with an image with the prefix of "c7200", and conversely.

Warning Unlike other network processing engines, the Cisco NPE-G2 has its own Cisco IOS software images with the prefix of "c7200p-" in the software image file names. All other network processing engines such as NPE-225, NPE-400 and NPE-G1 are compatible with images with the prefix of "c7200-." The Cisco NPE-G2 does not boot up with a software image with the prefix of "c7200-". Conversely, the other network processing engines such as NPE-225, NPE-400, and NPE-G1 do not boot up with the software image with the prefix of "c7200p-".
