High-performance networking systems have historically been divided into routing or switching classes, with distinct hardware and software. Over time, this distinction has become less pronounced. This convergence has occurred with the evolution of feature-rich switching chips and routing chips that balance traditional Service Provider (SP) - class capabilities with many benefits of switching Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs).

Cisco 8000 Series routers complete this journey. They deliver provider-class routing functionality at unmatched density, performance, and power. This enables Cisco 8000 Series to be deployed into an unprecedented range of routing roles - all supported with a single ASIC architecture and operating system - thus streamlining qualification, deployment, and operations.

The Cisco 8000 Series combines the revolutionary Cisco Silicon One, IOS XR software, and a set of clean sheet chassis to deliver a breakthrough in high-performance routers.

The Cisco 8100 Series utilize Cisco's Router-on-Chip (RoC) architecture to deliver full routing functionality with a single ASIC per router. Supporting the full routing feature set, the 8100 Series is targeted for data center applications with lower buffering and forwarding table scale requirements.

The RoC architecture is distinguished from System-on-Chip (SoC) switches by supporting large forwarding tables, deep buffers, more flexible packet operations, and enhanced programmability. The Cisco 8100 provides up to 25.6 Tbps of network bandwidth with lower power than similar systems.
