Cisco 7604 Series Routers Positioned for Smaller POPs

Cisco Systems unveiled a number of enhancements positioning its Cisco 7600 Series routers for deployment in "triple play" networks. The rollout includes a new Cisco 7604 router, available as a 4-slot, 5-rack unit high modular chassis, that enables service providers to deploy L2/L3 VPN and triple play services in small points-of-presence (POPs) and internet gateways, or for enterprises requiring wide area network aggregation at the edge of the network. The small form factor router accommodates line cards from DS0 to OC-48 as well as 10/100/1000 Ethernet.

New IOS enhancements provide key upgrades to the Cisco 7600 Series routers such as hierarchical QoS, enhanced capabilities for prioritizing IP traffic, and dynamic multipoint Virtual Private Network (VPN) security capabilities. The base configuration -- which includes the chassis, the supervisor engine, and the power supply -- will be list priced starting at $34,000.
