Product Review

The CISCO CRS-16-LCC-B offers significant capacity with its 16 x 40 Gbps line card slots, supported by a dedicated switch fabric, ensuring efficient data handling and routing capabilities. However, its large dimensions and weight (up to 1595 lbs when fully configured) may present challenges in deployment and require substantial space and structural support in data centers. Additionally, the maximum DC power requirement of 9.63kW for a fully configured chassis, while manageable, demands careful consideration for power planning and cooling solutions in high-density network environments.


The CISCO CRS-16-LCC-B is a single-shelf system designed to meet the demands of high-performance networking, featuring a midplane design that facilitates efficient data flow and scalability. The system's architecture includes 16 line card slots, each capable of 40 Gbps, ensuring high-speed connectivity and data transfer rates. Additionally, the chassis is equipped with 8 dedicated slots for switch fabric cards, enhancing its switching capacity and performance. For management and processing, the CRS-16-LCC-B provides 2 dedicated slots for route processors, crucial for network routing decisions and policy management. The system's reliability is further supported by 2 dedicated slots for fan controllers, ensuring optimal cooling and operation under varying loads. The hardware specifications highlight the system's capacity for high-density networking applications. Dimensions of the chassis stand at 84 inches in height, 23.6 inches in width, and 36 inches in depth, with the inclusion of cable management and front cover extending the depth to 39.71 inches. The system's weight varies depending on configuration, starting at 939 lbs for the chassis only with built-in rack and fan trays installed. When shipped with power shelves but without power modules, the chassis weighs 1008 lbs. A fully configured system, utilizing all card slots and including power shelves and cosmetics, reaches a weight of 1595 lbs. Power efficiency is a key consideration in the CRS-16-LCC-B design. The maximum DC power requirement for a fully configured chassis with active line cards is 9.63kW. The chassis's power supply can deliver a maximum DC output of 13.2kW, ensuring ample power for all components even under heavy load. Key features include:
  • High-capacity line card slots (16 x 40 Gbps) for robust data throughput.
  • Dedicated slots for switch fabric cards (8 slots), route processors (2 slots), and fan controllers (2 slots) for enhanced system performance and reliability.
  • Comprehensive power management with a maximum DC output of 13.2kW to support a fully loaded chassis.
The CISCO CRS-16-LCC-B stands out for its ability to support extensive network demands with its high-capacity slots, dedicated resources for critical functions, and efficient power management.
