ACX2200 Quick Start Description

 

This Quick Start contains information you need to install and configure the router quickly. For complete installation instructions, see the ACX2200 Universal Metro Routers Hardware Guide.

Warning

This Quick Start contains a summary of safety warnings in Safety Warnings. For a complete list of warnings for this router, including translations, see the ACX2200 Universal Metro Routers Hardware Guide.

The ACX Universal Metro Routers are Ethernet-optimized mobile backhaul routers that provide both switching and carrier-class Ethernet routing. The ACX Series routers enable a wide range of business and residential applications and services, including microwave cell site aggregation, MSO mobile backhaul service cell site deployment, and service provider or operator cell site deployment. The ACX2200 routers have high-density Ethernet interfaces and high-capacity switching throughput.

The routers are single-board routers with a built-in Routing Engine and one Packet Forwarding Engine. The Packet Forwarding Engine has one “pseudo” Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC 0). Because there is no switching fabric, the single Packet Forwarding Engine takes care of packet forwarding.

The compact routers are one rack unit (U; that is, 1.75 in., or 4.45 cm) tall. Several routers can be stacked in a single floor-to-ceiling rack for increased port density per unit of floor space.

The ACX2200 routers contain four Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 ports, four Gigabit Ethernet combination ports (either four Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 ports or four Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports), two Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports, and two 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports. Use only one set of these combination ports (labeled COMBO PORTS) at a time.
