It's important to note that specific hardware and software specifications may vary depending on the version of the software and the line cards used with the 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis. It's recommended to consult the documentation of the specific version of IOS XR running on your router for detailed information on hardware and software specifications.
High Availability and Redundancy
The 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis is designed to provide high availability and redundancy in large enterprise and service provider networks.
High availability refers to the ability of the router to continue functioning properly even in the event of a hardware or software failure. To achieve this, the 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis is equipped with several features that can help to minimize downtime and ensure that the network remains up and running:
- Hot-swappable power supplies and fans that allow for easy replacement of failed components without shutting down the router.
- Redundant Route Processor (RP) module option, which provides a secondary RP that can take over in the event of a failure of the primary RP.
- In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) feature, which allows for software upgrades to be performed without interrupting network service.
Redundancy refers to the ability of the router to continue functioning properly even in the event of a failure of a network component or link. To achieve this, the 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis supports several redundancy protocols such as:
- Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) allows for automatic failover to a redundant router in the event of a failure of the primary router.
- Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) allows for automatic failover to a redundant router in the event of a failure of the primary router.
- Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP) allows for load balancing between multiple routers.
- Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) allows for multicast traffic to be forwarded over multiple paths.
It's important to note that specific availability and redundancy features may vary depending on the version of the software and the line cards used with the 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis. It's recommended to consult the documentation of the specific version of IOS XR running on your router for detailed information on High availability and redundancy features.
Advanced Security Features
The 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis provides advanced security features that can be used to protect your network against unauthorized access, threats and attacks.
Some of the advanced security features include:
- Access Control Lists (ACLs) which can be used to control access to the network based on the source and destination IP address, protocol, or port number.
- Stateful Firewall which can be used to inspect and filter incoming and outgoing traffic based on stateful protocol analysis
- Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) which can detect and block advanced malware and threats on the network.
- Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) which can detect and prevent network intrusions and attacks
- Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Copy (SCP) which can be used to encrypt communications and secure remote management access
- Virtual Private Network (VPN) which can be used to create secure, encrypted connections between remote users and the network.
- Network Address Translation (NAT) which can be used to translate private IP addresses to public IP addresses and vice versa.
- Quality of Service (QoS) which can be used to prioritize and shape network traffic.
It's important to note that configuring advanced security features can be complex and requires a good understanding of network security principles. It's recommended to follow the best practices provided by Cisco and consult the documentation of the specific version of IOS XR running on your 12000/6 Cisco Router Chassis for detailed instructions on configuring advanced security features. It's also a good idea to consult a Cisco partner or a networking professional to help you configure security on your router.

About Refurbished Products
Routers lead the line as the first line of network security in homes and offices. It prevents intrusion into a network while creating a firewall to provide the highest level of security on several network types. They are the best ways of keeping computer systems, network systems, and information contained in them safe from intrusion.
A router is designed to be more capable than several other network devices such as hubs or switches that can only carry out basic network functions. For instance, a hub only transfers data between network devices without analyzing or doing anything with those data. On the other hand, routers are able to analyze data sent between network devices. They can change the packaging of such data and send it over to a different network.
Routers are the perfect devices to share an internet connection between multiple computers in home networks. A router typically connects to the modem using a network cable. Router networking occurs via a WAN port or the internet. There are also wireless routers that connect to devices using different wireless standards.
The hardware inside these routers allows them to cope with several network use at the same time. Many of these routers come with dual-core and quad-core processors. These processor options allow them to handle lots of data more effectively. Users can use their Wi-Fi routers for activities such as video streaming, online gaming, data backups, and more. Even while carrying out those operations, the routers perform at the highest levels.
Users will get routers that broadcast wireless signals over two frequencies (for dual-band) or more (for tri-band and others). These routers run at frequencies that can cover a wide expanse of area. They are not congested and are perfect for office buildings, homes, and large enterprises. Clients will find routers that emit their signals between 2.4 GHz and 5GHz.
Built-in Security Features
These router networking devices also come with security features such as device quarantine, firmware updates, automatic updates, and more. The features allow them to provide network-level protection against attacks. With these features, cybercriminals will be unable to infiltrate home networks.
Types of Routers
There are several types of routers that users can benefit from. Some of them include:
- Core Routers. These are the types used by Internet Service Providers. They are the fastest and most powerful types. They sit at the center of the internet and forward data through the main fiber Optics.
- Wireless Routers. These work in a similar manner as a home or business LAN. However, they give room for better mobility for laptops, tablets, and other portable devices. These types offer transmission over short distances.
- Enterprise Routers. These are the types employed by large companies. Organizations use enterprise routers to connect their networks to these core routers.
- Branch Routers. These types connect an enterprise's remote offices to its Wide Area Network (WAN). They come with improved features such as wireless LAN management, time-division multiplexing, WAN acceleration, and more.
- Edge Routers. These are the most commonly used types in homes and small businesses. They are low-capacity devices that connect to the public internet or private WAN, or external LAN.
- Logical Routers. They function similarly to hardware to create several network routes.
