What are the main differences between modular services cards, forwarding processor cards and label switch processor cards? I'm looking for the reason why completely new names were created, i.e. what new functions were added so that MSC name had to be changed to FP or LSP.
- the MSC-140 are cards with full feature set (64k queues per slot): they are perfect on a PE for customer facing links (CE-PE).
- the FP-140 are cards with additional features based on licenses and a lower QoS scalability (8 queues per physical port) : they can be used on the customer facing ports with no advanced QoS needs, but also for internet transit and on core facing links (PE-P)
- the LSP-140 are cards mainly targeted to switch labels: perfect P routers cards (P-PE or P-P links).
Today we are releasing to the public a tool to help find differences in command outputs in two points in time (IE pre and post MW).
The issues we are addressing is what commands to gather and how to successfully parse the data when timestamps, upti...
In this document, I will go over how to verify control plane and data plane programming on ncs55xx.
This profile is becoming the most favorite on this platform because of the use of partitioned mdt, and the fact it can scale easily using ml...
This guide will explain how to check where a particular directory resides within the filesystem in terms of physical disk, logical volume, volume group, etc by taking a look at where the install repository actually resides on an NCS5500.
According to the RFC 7432:
Extended Community enables split-horizon procedures for multihomed sites. The ESI Label field represents an ES by the advertising PE, and it is used in split-horizon filtering by other PEs that are connected to th...
In scaled EVPN deployments it can be wise to name ESI that way to represent the site/physical port/etc it is attached to. Thus on some remote location you can easily verify where particular route/MAC is coming from. Similar to phone numbers, where...
