7600 Ethernet Service Plus Card - Model Difference

Dear All,

We are looking for buying a 20GE port 7600 ES+ Card. However, there are a  few different models, we are not sure which one is the right one. We  will be using this card for Metro Ethernet Termination, MPLS VPN,  EoMPLS, QoS (Marking, CBWFQ), PPPoE, possibly VPLS.

Would anyone please advise the difference between the following models?

Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus

Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus Transport

Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus XT

Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus Extended Combination

Any help will be appreciated.

Regrads,

Jing

Hi Jing,

The cards mentioned above all supports the features which you are looking far. There are few additional support provided by the cards over each other. Kindly check the below links:

1-

Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps368/data_sheet_c78-49152.html

2-

Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus Transport

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps368/data_sheet_c78-570730.html

Re: 7600 Ethernet Service Plus Card - Model Difference

HI,

It looks like a limitation on the line card. WS-X6148A-GE-TX is 8:1 oversubscribed and

share one Vishaka ASIC for 8 ports. If you go beyond ASIC boundary you may be able to use

same VLAN again.

2- I have not tested this dot1q subinterfaces on this card but looking at this document it is supported.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/7600/install_config/ES20_config_guide/baldcfg.html

3-  No CBWFQ is not supported on sub-interface. But there is a way around for the same.

Check this:

4-Yes this is supported

PPPoE under QinQ sub-interface

7600 Ethernet Service Plus Card - Model Difference

Thank you, Inayath.

Just would like to ask a few more questions:

1. We are running WS-F6724-DFC3CXL, when we the following problem when configuring same vlan on different interface.

interface GigabitEthernet1/1.10

  encapsulation dot1Q 10

  ip add 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

int GigabitEthernet1/2.10

  encapsulation dot1Q 10

Command rejected: VLAN 10 not available

I understand this is because the card itself is actually a LAN ethernet card.

Would the ES+ card solve this problem? Such as below:

interface GigabitEthernet1/1.10

  encapsulation dot1Q 10

  ip add 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

interface GigabitEthernet1/2.10

  encapsulation dot1Q 10

  ip add 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.0

2. Is there any limitation on how many dot1q sub-interfaces or VLANs on this card/platform?

3. Does it support CBWFQ on the dot1q sub-interface?

4. Does it support PPPoE under QinQ sub-interface? Such as below:

interface GigabitEthernet0/1.2503

  encapsulation dot1Q 2503 second-dot1q 1-4092

  pppoe enable group PPPoE-Group

Have you tried defining port g1/1 as a trunk, defining VLAN 10 and they assigning your 192.168.1.1 to interface VLAN 10?

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for you input.

However, SVI will not help in our case. Our scenario is, for example, we  have two Metro Ethernet backhauls from two different providers, they  provide the connectivity between our network and our customers. They  deliver the end customers' VCs by using dot1q trunk. Potentially,  provider-A can use vlan10 to build VC to Customer-A, where provider-B  can also use vlan10 to build VC to Customer-B. On our PE router (7600),  we need to untagged both vlan 10, and put different IP addresses, VRFs,  QoS policies etc. for each services, Therefore, using SVI will not solve  our problem.

We need something below configured on the Ethernet Card of 7600.

interface GigabitEthernet1/1.10
description customer-A
  encapsulation dot1Q 10
  ip add 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

interface GigabitEthernet1/2.10
description customer-B
  encapsulation dot1Q 10
  ip add 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.0
