The Cisco CRS-3 Forwarding Processor Card provides distributed forwarding engine capability for the Cisco CRS Family. It is responsible for data-plane processing tasks, handling all network traffic flows through it. The card performs all baseline packet routing operations, including Layer 3 forwarding, quality-of-service (QoS) classification, policing and shaping, security access control lists (ACLs), VPNs, load balancing, and NetFlow. The performance highlights of the card include hardware-assisted policing, and jitter- and latency-minimizing multicast packet replication.

The Cisco CRS-3 Forwarding Processor Card offers many advantages:
• Powered by QuantumFlow Array, one of the world’s most sophisticated chipset architectures. QuantumFlow Array was engineered for the Cisco CRS Family of routers to provide higher bandwidth than competing products without any compromise on service performance
• Supported across all the Cisco CRS-3 form factors: 4-slot, 8-slot, 16-slot, and multi-chassis
• Supported across all the Cisco CRS-1 form factors: 4-slot, 8-slot, 16-slot, and multi-chassis
• Scales the Cisco CRS per-slot forwarding capacity 3.5 times from 40 Gbps to 140 Gbps
• Always paired with interface module through the chassis mid-plane, thus occupying one-half of a slot
• Can be paired with a variety of interface modules, providing deployment flexibility
• Can be mixed with 40-Gbps-per-slot modules occupying other slots in the chassis
• Features two 140-Gbps forwarding ASICs for discreet ingress and egress packet handling
• Single-flow Layer 3 traffic processing at 140 Gbps in each direction
• Enhanced onboard multi-core CPU for accelerated software processing
• Optimized for peering edge and core applications
• Layer 3 forwarding engine with industry-leading, wire-rate performance at
• Additional services such as class of service (CoS) processing, Multicast, Traffic Engineering (TE), and statistics gathering are also performed at line-rate
• Supports up to 8 queues per port
• Built-in hardware acceleration for critical network control traffic
• Built-in support for video monitoring for a rich video quality of experience (QoE)
• Accurate hardware-assisted time-stamping support for service-level agreement (SLA) monitoring
• Supports several forwarding protocols, including IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS
• Enhanced performance with hardware-based prefix lookup for IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS
• Industry-leading environmental efficiency with a lower power and weight profile than competition
