Product Overview

The Cisco 12012 has two card cages; the upper card cage and the lower card cage. (Refer to
Figure 1.) The upper card cage has 12 user-configurable slots available for line cards and a route
processor (RP). One additional slot (rightmost slot) in the upper card cage is non-configurable; it is
reserved for an alarm card. The line cards and the RP are not slot dependent; you can install the line
cards and the RP in any of the first 12 available slots.
