Cisco Part Number: NCS-55A2-MOD-SE-S is a Cisco NCS 55A2 Fixed 24X10G + 16X25G and MPA Scale Chassis

The Cisco Network Convergence System 55A2 Series Routers represent a leap forward in delivering cutting-edge services at a cost-effective rate. Engineered for high capacity and compactness, these routers boast low power consumption, ensuring efficiency without compromising performance. Featuring two modular bays, they offer unparalleled flexibility in configuration.

With a blend of Modular Port Adaptors (MPA) and fixed ports on the chassis, users have a range of options for different port types, all supported by industry-leading MACSec encryption. The Cisco NCS 55A2 Series Routers seamlessly integrate comprehensive Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) and Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN) services with a robust set of mobile features, making them ideal for dense converged aggregation platforms.

These routers are equipped with advanced capabilities such as advanced packet classification, segment routing, ultra-wide ECMP, and programmable network management, all built upon the reliable foundation of Cisco IOS XR Software. Additionally, they offer telemetry features, providing insights for enhanced network management.

One standout feature of the Cisco NCS 55A2 Series Router is its support for IP over Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) through MPA. This capability streamlines network layers by integrating DWDM interfaces directly into the routing platform. By doing so, it simplifies management tasks and accelerates service delivery, ultimately increasing operational efficiency.

Moreover, this IPoDWDM solution reduces the number of transport elements required while still supporting advanced features, leading to significant reductions in operating expenses and capital costs. The MPA leverages CFP2 Digital Coherent Optics (DCO) form factor transceivers, ensuring high performance and reliability in optical communications.

NCS-55A2-MOD-SE-S is a compact, fixed-port router designed for high-density networking requirements, fitting seamlessly into a two-rack unit space. It boasts 24 SFP/SFP+ ports, each capable of handling either Gigabit Ethernet or 10 Gigabit Ethernet, alongside 16 versatile SFP/SFP+/SFP28 ports, accommodating Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, or 25 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. Additionally, the router offers flexibility with support for up to 2 modular port adapters (MPA), expanding its capabilities further. Notably, it incorporates external TCAM functionality to bolster the Forwarding Information Base (FIB), network Access Control Lists (ACLs), and Quality of Service (QoS), catering to the demands of scale-enhanced configurations.
