The Cisco® Carrier Routing System (CRS) Hardware Overview course introduces you to the Cisco CRS-1, CRS-3, and CRS-X carrier routing systems’ hardware features and functions. You will learn the important hardware concepts on which the carrier routing system solution is based and gain the practical knowledge and skills to successfully deploy these on your network.
Additionally, you will be able to verify correct operation of various CRS hardware components, including line card chassis, switch fabric, route processors, and physical layer interface modules (PLIMs).
- The CRS-1 hardware overview is comprised of 7 modules and 17 lessons totaling almost 3 hours of video training.
- The CRS-3 hardware overview is comprised of 11 modules and 21 lessons totaling almost 4 hours of video training.
- The CRS-X hardware overview is comprised of 4 modules and 4 lessons totaling more than 1 hour of video training.
This is a self-paced learning course – with 180 Access Duration.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
- Define the Cisco Carrier Routing System
- List the physical design characteristics of line cards and chassis
- Enumerate the line card chassis and how they differ
- Explore the commonalities between chassis
- Describe how data flows across a chassis
- Explain how these routers are powered
- Explain what a performance route processor is
- Explain what a switch fabric is
- Give examples of how line cards work and what kinds are available
- Define what a multi-shelf architecture is and how it works
- Explain how quality of service is implemented on the CRS
