Today's Service Providers face a number of challenges that require a new breed of solutions in order to ensure successful and profitable operation. Service Providers operate in an environment of fierce competition that continues to drive service pricing down. Furthermore, ensuring and increasing profitability are key goals for any Service Provider, which presents the additional challenges of controlling Capital Expenditures (CapEx) and Operational Expenditures (OpEx).

Foundry's NetIron XMR Series routers are built to effectively address all these hurdles by offering the state-of-the-art in hardware and software design. Based on a superior terabit-scale architecture that includes Foundry's cutting-edge fifth generation network processors, this series comprises the industry's most powerful, high density IPv4/IPv6/MPLS multi-service routers. To enable the deployment of scalable, high value, and profitable services, the NetIron XMR Series offers highly versatile, cost-efficient solutions for Internet routing, inter-Metro backbones, large scale multi-service backbones, and IP carrier's carrier transport.

The NetIron XMR Series includes the 4-slot NetIron XMR 4000. The series offers industry-leading port capacity and density for both Carrier Ethernet and Packet over SONET/SDH (POS) with up to 128 10-GbE, 640 1-GbE, 64 OC-192 (STM-64), or 256 OC-48 (STM-16) ports in a single chassis, high density router.

The NetIron XMR Series is designed from the ground up for high performance and scalability to address the needs of the most demanding ISP, Internet data center, inter-Metro connectivity, and multi-service operator applications. All routers in the series feature wire-speed, low latency, and low jitter routing for IPv4, IPv6, MPLS, and MPLS VPN services, and they support both edge (PE) and core (P) router deployments. For metropolitan area networks (MANs), the NetIron XMR Series is capable of wire-speed, low latency, and low jitter Layer 2 switching to allow for cost-efficient and seamless integration with Layer 2 MANs or Layer 2 MAN access layers without compromising performance.

A comprehensive set of path calculation and signaling capabilities using OSPF-TE, IS-IS/TE, RSVP-TE, CSPF, and LDP allows the creation of both traffic engineered and non traffic engineered infrastructures. Within either infrastructure, the NetIron XMR Series supports IP over MPLS as well as MPLS VPN applications. The NetIron XMR Series supports all three popular MPLS VPN services, Virtual Leased Line (VLL), LDP-Based Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), and BGP/MPLS VPN, on all ports at wire-speed.

The NetIron XMR Series is also designed for enabling the evolving multi-service and triple-play infrastructures. Built with an innovative view of Virtual Output Queuing (VOQ) architectures, packet buffering, and packet scheduling, the NetIron XMR routers offer non-blocking packet forwarding and large capabilities for handling severe congestion scenarios. Built on that superior foundation, the NetIron XMR routers deliver a comprehensive suite of QoS mechanisms to enable next-generation architectures. Using the NetIron XMR routers, operators can implement eight distinct traffic classes of prioritization with true performance guarantees. Operators can implement those performance guarantees by choosing from different packet scheduling schemes and tweaking the associated configurable parameters. Additionally, by relying on DSCP Drop Precedence, operators can take advantage of Weighted Random Early Discard (WRED) for differentiated packet dropping in case of congestion within a given traffic class.
