  • ROADM technology
    The NCS 2006 evolves Cisco's ROADM portfolio by introducing nLight ROADM technology. By supporting touchless reconfigurability via colorless, omnidirectional, and contentionless add/drop, networks built upon nLight ROADM can instantly respond to new bandwidth requests, route around network failures, and dynamically adjust their topology - all without manual intervention. Highly meshed networks will benefit from support of up to 16 degrees per card, 32 degrees total, while flex spectrum capability dramatically improves network efficiency by flexibly optimizing system capacity versus reach. Ultimately, per fiber pair capacities of up to 26 terabits per second can be achieved.
  • Great Amplification
    The NCS 2000 introduces hybrid amplifiers that are an optimal combination of Raman and erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) technology. These are known as erbium doped Raman amplifiers, or EDRA. EDRA's are compact, easy to deploy, and support an ultra-low noise figure critical for long distance, high bit-rate transmission. The platform supports a variety of optical amplifiers to meet varying network needs, including coherent-optimized EDFA's and high power counter and co-propagating Raman amplifiers.
  • Optimizing 100G
    Continuing Cisco's innovation in 100G technology, nLight Silicon now extends to the client-facing interface via the CPAK pluggable transceiver. CPAK's extremely compact dimensions and low power consumption enable a single-slot 100G coherent DWDM line card with a standards-based 100GBASE-LR4 client interface, resulting in a superb system density of one 100G transponder per rack unit. State-of-the-art coherent digital signal processing technology helps enable unregenerated distances of up to 3000 km in an EDFA-only network, or up to 4800 km in a network employing Raman amplification.
  • Multi-layer network intelligence
    The NCS 2006's Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON) control plane architecture enhances GMPLS capabilities with awareness of wavelength properties and optical impairments, offering dynamic service provisioning and restoration over a touchless DWDM network. Leveraging Cisco's nLight Control Plane, the NCS 2006 intelligently interacts with packet layer devices, automating service provisioning, eliminating human error, and enabling advanced failure recovery.
  • Chassis
    The Cisco NCS 2006 offers two chassis variants. The Cisco NCS 2006 chassis is 6RU in height and has 6 slots for service cards.

The Cisco Network Convergence System 2006 (NCS 2006) sets the industry benchmark for dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) solutions by delivering the touchless programmability, massive scale, multi-layer convergence, and ultra-long-haul performance necessary for tomorrow's network architectures.
