12000 series router

I have confussion.I want to learn about IOS-XR and want to buy a router that runs it. I read documentation that 12000 XR router and run XR software. My question is that does 12000 come in 2 flavors, 12000 and 12000 XR? which one should i get?

also when I look at the download center, i do not see any place where it says download code for 12000 XR, but i see a place where it days download XR software, but the file name has CRS-1 in it. can the same XR code run on 12000 XR as well.

Hi Parwal

ARAIK the support starts from 12008 with the required upgrade so i dont think your chassis can support IOS XR.

Re: 12000 series router

Prem,

If you look at this cisco Doc table #6, it says that 12004 supports XR starting 3.3. Please can you confirm this. I will surely rate this post.

Just as an addition, you will need a 2GB Flash card if you want to run IOS-XR 3.7. See the following field notice for more information:
