Cisco 7206VXR & PA-GE

I am looking to install a PA-GE interface in a 7206VXR.  I do not have a processing engine that will support Gigabit speeds.  However, I only need 200 meg out of this setup.  Is it possible to install a PA-GE and link up at Gig speeds but only get around 200 megs of throughput out of it?  I need to do this as a stop bap until a new chassis is ordered.  Possible?

I doubt it. I have not tried this myself but I can see the processor complaining loudly about exceeding the bandwidth points.

Re: Cisco 7206VXR & PA-GE

What other modules do you have on this router?

If you have few modules, you should be able to install the PA-GE.

Please refer to the datasheet for hardware and software requirements

Hi Edison,I have not dealt

Hi Edison,

I have not dealt much in the hardware part ,so please excuse me if I am being naive.

We have a Cisco7206VXR and I want to connect two Gigabit ethernet optical links to it .

For first one , I want to free one of the existing port  Gig0/3 which is having media type RJ45 and convert it to 1 Gig Optical port.

It is showing it is in GBIC Port Container 0/3 ,So will adding an SFP-SX  do my work or I would have to plan something else?

For the second port , should I get a PA-GE card and a 1000BASE-SX SFP or a PA-GE card with GBIC-SX .

Inventory details of the router is as below.

Re: Cisco 7206VXR & PA-GE

For what it's worth, we have a 7204VXR with a PA-GE installed, although it also has a NPE-G1 as well.  The maximum throughput we get is about 200Mbps.

http://www9.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps341/products_tech_note09186a00800c814a.shtml has a section about PA-GE, although I'm not sure whether the 200Mbps bandwidth they state is dependent on the NPE-G1.
