Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers are designed to provide true carrier-class reliability using the Cisco IOS XR operating system, comprehensive system redundancy, and a full complement of network resiliency schemes. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series also offers service and application-level intelligence focused on optimized video delivery and mobile aggregation. Finally, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is designed to simplify and enhance the operational and deployment aspects of service-delivery networks.
The Cisco ASR 9000 Series provides an in-place upgrade roadmap to a switching capacity of up to 400 Gbps per slot without the need for a complete chassis replacement. This game changing ball is set rolling with a set of high density GE and 10GE Ethernet Services line cards utilizing versatile network processors to support an array of Carrier Ethernet applications. These Line-Cards, offered in base and extended-scale configurations, are complemented by the non-blocking fabric on the Route Switch Processor (RSP) and the future ready Back-Plane (BP), thermal and power infrastructure on the chassis.
The optimized thermal infrastructure of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is designed to be scalable to support the future capacity requirements. Variable-speed high-efficiency fans provide reduced power requirements under normal operating environments while retaining capability to cool current and future line cards under extreme conditions.
