Reliability and high availability

- Online Insertion and Removal (OIR) without affecting system traffic

- Multi-Router Automatic Protection Service (MR-APS) is a Cisco developed feature that provides protection against various hardware and software faults, including catastrophic system failure. MR-APS builds on the Telcordia Technologies -defined APS standard by adding Protect Group Protocol (PGP) communication between redundant routers. The SONET APS signaling and the PGP communication convey system state and SONET link state information between the Working and Protect routers. Upon failure of the network links or one of the routers, a backup path is available to prevent loss of service.

- Inter-Chassis Stateful Switchover (IC-SSO) for PPP consists of a collection of Cisco IOS XR Software subfeatures that provide switchover of PPP sessions to a backup router in the event of network or router failure. The feature integrates the MR-APS, IP Fast Reroute (FRR), and Simple Server Redundancy Protocol (SSRP) features to provide fast switchover of PPP data traffic.

- Bi-directional Forwarding Detection (BFD) provides rapid failure detection times between forwarding engines, while maintaining low overhead. It also provides a single, standardized method of link/device/protocol failure detection at any protocol layer and over any media.


- Cisco IOS XR Software includes industry-standard management interfaces, including modular command-line interface (CLI), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and native XML interfaces.

- Cisco Active Network Abstraction (ANA) is a flexible, vendor-neutral management framework for a multi-technology, multiservice network environment. Operating between the network and the operations-support-system (OSS) layer, Cisco ANA aggregates virtual network elements (VNEs) into a software-based virtual network, much as real network elements create the real-world network. Cisco ANA dynamically discovers network components and tracks the status of network elements in near real time.

- Cisco ANA offers service providers:

· Simplified integration of OSS applications with network information

· A flexible common infrastructure for managing network resources

· Consistent procedures and interfaces for all network elements
