Cisco Carrier Routing System

Build the Foundation for the Next-Generation Internet

Cisco Carrier Routing System 

Get industry-leading performance, advanced services intelligence, environmentally aware design, and system longevity with the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS). Each model uses Cisco IOS XR Software, a unique self-healing, distributed operating system.


Models include:

  • Cisco CRS-3, powered by Cisco QuantumFlow Array - a chipset architecture engineered in multiple dimensions of scale, services, and savings
  • Cisco CRS-1, built on the Cisco Silicon Packet Processor (SPP)

Packet-based data communications are being replaced by video and rich media crossing the IP Next-Generation Network (NGN) in multiple directions. As part of a medianet, a media-aware Cisco IP NGN, Cisco CRS eases this strain on networks. It efficiently handles the multidirectional traffic of network and data center cloud interactions.


The Cisco CRS:

  • Delivers continuous operations
  • Scales easily from numerous single-chassis form factors to a massive multichassis system, up to 322 Tbps
  • Provides industry-leading efficiency, requiring low power, cooling, and rack-space use for intelligent, service-rich bandwidth capacity

Cisco CRS-3 models build on the CRS-1 models' backward and forward compatibility, protecting your existing and future investments for decades to come.
