We have an ATM network based on Alcatel devices relaying over a SDH network with STM1 links. We are thinking about migrating it with Cisco equipment. First we'd need to increase our links from STM1 to STM4, and on the other hand we want to eliminate the ATM encapsulation in order to minimize overhead. Can you give us any recommendation? Is there any kind of interface which supports both ATM and POS? (to implement a gradual upgrade)
The problem we see is during the migration. There will be a moment that we have an ATM/SDH interface in one side and a POS interface in the other one. Then we want to know if it is possible to end the ATM PVCs in the POS interface. In other words, to configure atm encapsulation on a Cisco POS interface. We have seen that it is possible to configure frame-relay, hdlc and ppp.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
