Cisco Express Forwarding per-packet load balancing originally was supported in platforms that use software-based forwarding. Such platforms include the 2600, 3600, and 7200 series. Per-packet load balancing is now supported in hardware using Parallel Express Forwarding (PXF) on the 7200 series with a NSE-1, and 10000 series.
