Cisco SPA-1X10GE-L-V2, IPUIA5VRAA 1-Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet Shared Port Adapter, Version 2. SPA-1X10GE-L-V2 Cisco 1-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Shared Port Adapter The Cisco 1-Port 10-GE SPA is available on high-end Cisco routing platforms, offering the benefits of network scalability with lower initial costs and ease of upgrades. The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio continues the company's focus on investment protection along with consistent feature support, broad interface availability, and the latest technology. The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio allows deployment of different interfaces (packet over SONET/SDH [POS], ATM, Ethernet, etc.) on the same interface processor. Within a central office or data center or in a metropolitan-area network (MAN), 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are commonly used to interconnect routers or other devices. The Cisco 1-Port 10-GE SPA meets customers' needs for various applications. With this SPA, users can mix and match SPA ports with other types of interfaces in the same slot. The Cisco 1-Port 10-GE SPA is IEEE 802.3ae standards-based for compatibility and interoperability. Applications The Cisco 1-Port 10-GE SPAs can be used in any combination of the following applications: • Residential Triple Play • Metro Ethernet Services • Converged Residential and Business Services • Internet Peering • Inter- and intra-point of presence (POP) Aggregation Key Features and Benefits The Cisco SPA/SIP portfolio offers many advantages, including the following: • Modular, flexible, intelligent interface processors – Flexible design allows mixing and matching of interface types on the same interface processor for consistent services, independent of access technology. – Programmable interface processors provide flexibility for the service diversity required in next-generation networks. – Innovative design provides intelligent delivery of services without compromising performance. • Increased speed-to-service revenue – The programmable Cisco architecture extended to 10 Gigabits per second dramatically improves customer density, increasing potential revenue per platform and facilitating compatibility with future versions. – Interface breadth (copper, channelized, POS, ATM, and Ethernet) on a modular interface processor allows service providers to quickly roll out new services, facilitating consistent, secure services for all customers, large and small. – XFP interfaces are featured for high-port-count applications with reach flexibility. Future optical technology improvements can be adopted using existing SPAs. • Dramatically improved financials for your routing purchase – Improved slot economics and increased density reduce capital expenditures (CapEx). – The ability to easily add new interfaces as they are needed facilitates a "pay-as-you-grow" business model while still offering a high-density solution. – SPAs are shared across multiple platforms and can be easily moved from one to another, providing consistent feature support, accelerated product delivery, and a significant reduction in operating expenses (OpEx) through common sparing as service needs change.
