Product Review

The Cisco NCS1002-K9 excels in supporting high-capacity data transmission, offering up to 2Tbps for both client and trunk traffic, along with versatile modulation and data rate options, enhancing its appeal for diverse network environments. Its design includes redundant, field-replaceable power supplies and a comprehensive range of network management features, including Zero Touch Provisioning and streaming telemetry, ensuring reliability and ease of use. However, the limitation to only eight CFP2-ACO based DWDM trunk ports may restrict scalability in larger network setups, potentially necessitating additional units for expansion.


The Cisco NCS1002-K9 is a network convergence system that delivers high-density wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) solutions. It is designed to manage both client and trunk traffic efficiently, offering a capacity of 2 Tbps for each. This system accommodates a variety of modulation formats and data rates, supporting two modulation formats and three data rates, making it a versatile choice for diverse networking needs. This system is equipped with redundant and field-replaceable AC and DC power supplies, ensuring uninterrupted operation and high availability. It includes two power supplies, which enhances its reliability in various operational environments. With 20 QSFP based clients and 8 CFP2-ACO based DWDM trunk ports, the NCS1002-K9 provides ample connectivity options for dense network infrastructures. Its I/O management is divided into four slices, offering refined control over network resources. Key features include: - Wavelength transport capabilities of 100, 200, or 250 Gbps, allowing for flexible network scaling. - Compatibility with IOS-XR 6.1.2 or later, ensuring up-to-date software support and advanced features. - OTN features such as alarm reporting, performance monitoring, and threshold crossing alerts, enhancing network reliability and monitoring. The NCS1002-K9 is designed for efficient network management, supporting iPXE, Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), IOS XR CLI, SNMP, and streaming telemetry. This array of management tools simplifies deployment and ongoing management, making it an ideal solution for complex networks. Power consumption is optimized, with less than 80W per 100G, which contributes to its overall efficiency and lower operational costs. Latency is kept to a minimum, with a 20% SD-FEC (7.5us) end-to-end, ensuring high-performance levels for time-sensitive applications. The system's weight is 40 pounds, making it a manageable size for installation in various environments. It operates reliably across a wide range of temperatures, from -28ºC to 70ºC (-20ºF to 158ºF), and humidity levels, from 5% (non-condensing) to 85% (non-condensing), ensuring durability and resilience in different operational conditions. The Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is rated at 103,320 hours, indicating a reliable and long-lasting performance. This robustness, combined with its advanced features and efficient power usage, makes the Cisco NCS1002-K9 an excellent choice for operators looking to optimize their optical networking capabilities while ensuring reliability and scalability.
