The Cisco 10720 Router from Cisco Systems is the industry’s first router combining IP, Resilient Packet Ring, and Ethernet technologies optimized for high-speed metropolitan (metro) services.
The high-performance Cisco 10720 Router is a principle building block in the next-generation Metro IP network. It helps service providers offer innovative and differentiated IP and VPN services to their customers at optical speeds. Equipped with Ethernet technology for customer access and the innovative Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) technology for metro optical connectivity, the Cisco 10720 allows service providers to offer IP and VPN services closer to the user, helping them better control admission to network resources.
Powered by Cisco IOS Software and Parallel Express Forwarding (PXF) technology, the Cisco 10720 is a cost-effective, reliable platform that not only supports the full suite of IP routing protocols in both IPv4 and IPv6 but also enables value-added services. The Cisco 10720 can be used to efficiently introduce advanced features such as Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs (L2VPNs and L3VPNs) without compromising on performance.
