ImageStream Internet Solution - Pro Series Router - Carrier Pro II


The Carrier Pro II™ is ImageStream's flagship carrier-class router. It is designed to meet the expectations of five-nines (99.999%) up-time with a tightly coupled architecture that features redundant CPUs, buses, alarm systems, power supplies, and fans.

The Carrier Pro II provides standard features including redundant high-availability IBM PowerPC 750 processor cards, 256 MB ECC SDRAM, the Whitney watchdog module, flash storage, dual 10/100 ethernet, hot-swap 350 W power supply modules, hot-swap cooling fan trays, serial console, rear panel I/O, and three expansion buses. The Carrier Pro II also offers a variety of options including redundant DC power supplies, removable flash card storage, high-speed packet processing engines, 23" telecom rackmount, and the entire line of Pro Series network cards.

The Carrier Pro II offers a 12-slot high-availability backplane with redundant CompactPCI buses. The split-backplane design allows for 2N, N+1, hot standby and full redundancy configuration. Each of the redundant expansion buses provides over 3 Gbps of bandwidth, with one 64-bit 33 Mhz CPCI bus, one 32-bit 33 MHz PMC bus, and one H.110 telephony bus. The Carrier Pro II includes 6U expansion slots and two 32-bit PMC sites. Each 6U slot can accomodate Pro Series network cards including 6U CPCI cards, 3U CPCI cards with 6U adapters, PMC cards with PMC carriers, and PMC cards with packet processing engines.

Available software includes HA-aware device drivers (PICMG-compliant); alarm management; and shells for heartbeat, checkpoint, and policy management. Coupled with the Whitney watchdog module, the Carrier Pro II provides a best-two-out-of-three failover voting process, with switchovers accomplished in less than 50 milliseconds.
