  • Cisco MGX Route Processor MoOL-12304-01

    C H A P T E R 1

    Overview of the MGX RPM-XF

    This chapter provides an overview of the MGX Route Processor Module (RPM-XF) and its relationship to the Cisco MGX 8850 switch. This chapter contains the following sections:

    • RPM-XF Performance

    • RPM-XF Physical Overview

    • RPM-XF System Specifications

    • Cisco MGX 8850 Cellbus

    • Cisco MGX 8850 Serial Bus Interface

    • RPM-XF Midplane Connector

    • Front Panel LEDs

    • Cisco IOS Software Compatibility

    RPM-XF PerformanceThe MGX RPM-XF is a next-generation, high performance model of the RPM for the Cisco MGX 8850 platform, using PXM45 processor modules. It is a router module based on an RM7000A MIPS processing engine that will fit into almost any full-height service module slot on a 32-slot Cisco MGX 8850 (see Figure 1-1).

    Note The MGX RPM-XF can occupy slots 1-6 and 9-14.

    The RPM-XF hardware provides forwarding technology for packet switching capabilities in excess of 2-million pps. The forwarding engine is packet based and is interfaced to the midplane of the system through a combination of switch interface technologies.

    In addition to the routing function, one or two high speed uplinks (either OC12 POS or Gigabit Ethernet) are supported through a backcard placed in the upper backcard slot. The console and aux connections and two Fast Ethernet ports are available on a separate management back card, which must be located in the lower backcard slot.

    The RPM-XF provides integrated IP in an ATM platform, enabling services such as integrated Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and IP virtual private networks (VPNs) using MPLS technology. It provides Cisco IOS-based multiprotocol routing over ATM and ATM Interface Layer 3 Termination, Local Server Interconnect over High-Speed LANs, access concentration, and switching between Ethernet LANs and the WAN facilities of the Cisco MGX 8850.

    1-1dule (RPM-XF) Installation and Configuration Guide

  • Chapter 1 Overview of the MGX RPM-XFBidirectional Forwarding Detection

    Bidirectional Forwarding DetectionThe Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) feature is now available in this release.

    Bidirectional Forwarding Detection improves protocol convergence times by rapidly detecting failures in the path between routers. This is especially important for media that does not provide failure signaling, such as Ethernet, because the OSPF protocol can take a second or more to detect a signaling loss using hello messages. This is too long for some applications and can result in excessive data loss, especially at gigabit rates. BFD quickly detects a media failure so that the OSPF protocol can quickly update routes.

    BFD Version 1 SupportCisco IOS Release 12.4(15)T1 supports BFD Version 1 as well as BFD Version 0. All BFD sessions come up as Version 1 by default and are interoperable with Version 0. The system automatically performs BFD version detection, and BFD sessions between neighbors run in the highest common BFD version. For example, of one BFD neighbor is running BFD Version 0 and the other BFD neighbor is running Version 1, the session runs as BFD Version 0. The output from the show bfd neighbors [details] command shows which BFD version a BFD neighbor is running.

    BFD Limitations for the RPM-XF CardThe BFD implementation on the RPM-XF card has the following limitations:

    • BFD only for OSPF is tested and certified.

    • BFD is supported only on Ethernet interfaces.

    BFD Configuration GuidelinesYou enable and configure BFD as you would on other Cisco routers running Cisco IOS Release 12.4(15)T1. BFD is a supporting protocol for OSPF, so OSPF must be up and running in the RPM-XF before BFD can start. For more information, refer to the following feature module:

    Cisco Bidirectional Forwarding Feature Module

    For command reference information, refer to the following document:

    Cisco IOS Master Commands List, Release 12.4

    RPM-XF Physical OverviewThe MGX RPM-XF-512 module fits in a 32-slot, full-height Cisco MGX 8850 chassis. The RPM-XF connects to the PXM45 switch module, the MGX-XF-UI or MGX-XF-UI/B, MGX-1OC12POS-IR, MGX-2OC12POS, MGX-1GE, and MGX-2GE back cards, and other service modules via the midplane.

    The RPM-XF receives power from the midplane and communicates over the midplane with the PXM45 using IPC over ATM. The RPM-XF runs Cisco IOS software.

    1-2Cisco MGX Route Processor Module (RPM-XF) Installation and Configuration Guide

    OL-12304-01

  • Chapter 1 Overview of the MGX RPM-XFRPM-XF Physical Overview

    The Cisco MGX 8850 is affected by the traffic load coming from the RPM-XF. All RPM-XF trunk traffic travels over the integrated ATM interface to the Cisco MGX 8850 serial bus, which switches traffic to the appropriate service module or RPM-XF. Both the RPM-XF and the PXM45 are configured manually to create connections before any user data can flow through the PXM45.

    The RPM-XF has an integrated ATM interface—a permanently attached ATM port connection. The RPM-XF supports one or two high-speed uplinks through a back card in the upper backcard slot, and a console/aux dual fast ethernet (FE) back card in the lower backcard slot. The high speed uplink can be either an OC12 POS or Gigabit Ethernet back card with one or two ports.

    The RPM-XF installs into one slot in the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis and connects to the Cisco MGX 8850 midplane. (See Figure 1-1.) When the RPM-XF is installed (in the front of the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis), its back cards must also be connected to the midplane (from the rear of the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis) and their ports cabled to network devices. (See Figure 1-2.) See Appendix B, “Cable and Connector Specifications” for cable and connection details.

    Note In the Cisco MGX 8850, slots 7 and 8 are reserved for the PXM45 cards occupying the full height of the chassis. Slots 15, 16, 31, and 32 are also reserved. (See Figure 1-1, which shows the PXM45 and RPM-XF cards installed in the front of the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis.)

    Figure 1-2 shows the rear view of the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis, in which PXM45-UI-S3 cards are visible in the top slots and PXM hard disk, directly behind the PXM45s. In the same illustration, either an MGX-1OC12POS-IR or MGX-1GE back card is always installed in the upper bay back slots of the RPM-XF and the MGX-XF-UI or MGX-XF-UI/B management card is always installed in the lower bay slot directly behind the RPM-XF cards.

    Figure 1-3 RPM-XF Connected to the Cisco MGX 8850 Midplane and to the Back Cards

    The RPM-XF fits into the Cisco MGX 8850 midplane architecture so that the front card provides Cisco IOS router services, and the back cards provide physical network connectivity. The RPM-XF front card also provides ATM connectivity to the Cisco MGX 8850 Serial Interface at full-duplex OC-24.

    The RPM-XF back cards are connected to the front card by a dual PCI bus (see Figure 1-3). Each RPM-XF card is equipped with two half-height back cards. The following half-height high-speed uplink back cards, which must be installed in the upper slot, are supported:

    • 1-port OC12 POS

    • 2-port OC12 POS

    • 1-port Gigabit Ethernet

    • 2-port Gigabit Ethernet

    The management card is always installed in the lower slot.

    Although in most service provider network cores, the recommended routing protocols are OSPF or IS-IS, with additional use of BGP, where appropriate, the RPM-XF supports all of the following IP routing protocols:

    • static route

    • IGRP

    • RIPv1

    • RIPv2

    • OSPF

    • EIGRP

    • IS-IS

    • BGP with multiprotocol extensions

    Note The MAC addresses remain with the chassis slot, not with a particular card or interface. Any new RPM-XF placed in a slot will receive the MAC addresses previously assigned to that slot. Moving an RPM-XF card to a different slot or chassis results in its receiving a new MAC address.

    RPM-XF System SpecificationsTable 1-1 summarizes the key attributes of the RPM-XF card.

    Cisco MGX 8850 CellbusThe Cisco MGX 8850 cellbus in the Cisco MGX 8850 midplane communicates between the RPM-XF, service modules (cellbus slaves) and the PXM45 (cellbus master) (see Figure 1-3). Each cellbus is connected to a set of PXM45 cards. Only one cellbus can be active at a time.

    Communication from master to slaves consists of a broadcast to all slaves. The first byte of the cell header contains addressing information. Each slave will monitor data traffic and “pick up” cells that are destined to its slot. Also, a multicast bit allows all slaves to receive a cell simultaneously.

  • Chapter 1 Overview of the MGX RPM-XFCisco MGX 8850 Serial Bus Interface

    Communication from the slaves to the master is more complicated. Because many slaves might attempt to transmit simultaneously, arbitration among slaves is required. At the start of a given cell period, the master will poll all slaves to see if they have anything to send. By the end of the current cell, the master will grant, or allow, one of the slaves to transmit. Polling and data transmission occur simultaneously.

    Cisco MGX 8850 Serial Bus InterfaceThe ATM connection is a permanent, internal ATM interface that connects directly to the Cisco MGX 8850 midplane. The ATM interface connects to a high speed cross-bar switch through the Cisco MGX 8850 Serial Bus Interface. The Serial Bus Interface is comprised of 4 High-Speed Serial Links in two redundant sets (A and B). These High-Speed Serial Links carry serial data at a bit-rate of 1.25 Gigabits per second. Each link has separate transmit and receive lines, with differential signal transmission using Gigabit Ethernet SERDES transceivers.

    The RPM-XF connects to the Serial Bus Interface through a dedicated, ATM cell-based ASIC. Packet-to-cell translation is provided through two dedicated segmentation and reassembly (SAR) devices that support cell rates of OC-24 through the Serial Bus ASIC.

    RPM-XF Midplane ConnectorThe Cisco MGX 8850 cellbus and the RPM-XF back cards connect through two sets of connectors placed at the rear of the RPM-XF motherboard (see Figure 1-3). The two connectors each have 360 pins, for a total of 720 pins.

    Front Panel LEDsThe LEDs indicate the current operating condition of the RPM-XF (see Figure 1-4). You can observe the LEDs and note the fault condition the RPM-XF is encountering. If you need assistance, contact your system administrator or TAC, if necessary. For a table showing how to interpret RPM-XF front panel LED activity, see the “Reading Front Panel LEDs” section Appendix A, “Maintaining the MGX RPM-XF.”

    Maintaining Safety with Electricity

    Warning Before working on a chassis or working near power supplies, unplug the power cords on an AC-powered system. On a DC-powered system, disconnect the power at the circuit breakers.

    Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity:

    • Locate the emergency power-off switch for the room in which you are working. If an electrical accident occurs, you can quickly turn off the power.

    • Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist anywhere in your workspace.

    • Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit—Always check the circuit.

    • Carefully look for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cords, or missing safety grounds.

    • If an electrical accident occurs:

    – Use caution—Do not let yourself become a victim.

    – Disconnect power from the system.

    – If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, assess the condition of the victim then call for help.

    • Use the Cisco MGX 8850 AC and MGX 8850 DC systems within their marked electrical ratings and product usage instructions.

    • Install the Cisco MGX 8850 AC or MGX 8850 DC systems with the following local, national, or international electrical codes:

    – United States—National Fire Protection Association (NFPA70), United States National Electrical Code.

    – Canada—Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, CSA C22.1.

    – Other countries—International Electromechanical Commission (IEC) 364, Part 1 through Part 7.

    • Cisco MGX 8850 AC models are shipped with a 3-wire electrical cord with a grounding-type plug that fits only a grounding type power outlet. This is a safety feature that you should not circumvent. Equipment grounding should comply with local and national electrical codes.

    • Cisco MGX 8850 DC models are equipped with DC power entry modules and require you to terminate the DC input wiring on a DC source capable of supplying at least 60A. A 60A circuit breaker is required at the 48 VDC facility power source. An easily accessible disconnect device should be incorporated into the facility wiring. Be sure to connect the grounding wire conduit to a solid earth ground. A closed loop ring is recommended to terminate the ground conductor at the ground stud.

    • Other DC power guidelines are as follows:

    – Only a DC power source that complies with the safety extra low voltage (SELV) requirements of UL 1950, CSA C22.2 No. 950-95, EN 60950 and IEC 950 can be connected to a Cisco MGX 8850 DC-input power entry module.

    – Cisco MGX 8850 DC which is equipped with DC power entry modules is intended only for installation in a restricted access location. In the United States, a restricted access area is in accordance with Articles 110–16, 110–17, and 110–18 of the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70.

  • Chapter 2 Preparing to Install the MGX RPM-XFGeneral Site Requirements

    Preventing Electrostatic Discharge DamageElectrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. It occurs when electronic components are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures.

    Always follow ESD prevention procedures when removing and replacing components. Ensure that the chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact. Connect the clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and cord must operate effectively. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the chassis.

    Caution For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohms).

    General Site RequirementsThis section describes the requirements your site must meet for safe installation and operation of your system. Ensure that your site is properly prepared before beginning installation.

    Power Supply ConsiderationsCheck the power at your site to ensure that you are receiving “clean” power (free of spikes and noise). Install a power conditioner if necessary.

    Warning The Cisco MGX 8850 and RPM-XF are designed to work with TN power systems.

    The AC power supply of the RPM-XF is part of the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis. The RPM-XF, when installed in the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis, receives –48 volts DC power from the midplane.

    The DC power supply of the RPM-XF is part of the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis. The RPM-XF, when installed in the Cisco MGX 8850 chassis, receives –48 volts DC power from the midplane.
