Cisco 7600 Ethernet Services Module 7600 ES+ Line Card, 40xGE SFP with DFC 3C
Designed for Carrier Ethernet, IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching Provider Edge (IP/MPLS PE), mobile wireless backhaul, and enterprise WAN/MAN applications, the Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus 40-Gbps Line Cards (ES+40) support up to 40 Gbps of bandwidth with 40 ports of Gigabit Ethernet or 4 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. With the same architecture and features, the Cisco 7600 Series Ethernet Services Plus 20-Gbps Line Cards (ES+20) offer 20 Gbps of bandwidth with 20 ports of Gigabit Ethernet or 2 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The cards feature hierarchical quality of service (QoS), locally significant VLANs, distributed MAC learning, and up to 16,000 Ethernet service instances per line card for rich services. The Cisco 7600 ES Plus line cards provide the unique ability to combine both Layer 2 and Layer 3 services on the same line card. The combination of native Ethernet Layer 2 switching, bridging, Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS), Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS), and Layer 3 IP/MPLS routing distinguishes this line card among other products on the market, particularly in Carrier Ethernet applications.
