Cisco IOS XR

Return to Operating Systems

Cisco IOS XR is a train of Cisco Systems' widely deployed Internetworking Operating System (IOS), used on their high-end Network Converging System (NCS), carrier-grade routers such as the CRS series, 12000 series, and ASR9000 series.

According to Cisco's product literature, IOS XR shares very little infrastructure with the other IOS trains, and is instead built upon a “preemptive, memory protected, multitasking, microkernel-based operating system”. The microkernel was formerly provided by QNX; versions 6.0 onwards use the Wind River Linux distribution.
