A Programmable and Scalable Network Edge
The Cisco ASR 9000 series routers are the cornerstone of modern Edge and Carrier Ethernet networks. With the highest single platform density, low power consumption, and virtualization capabilities the ASR 9000 series helps carriers to:
- Monetize new, profitable services
- Optimize network performance and efficiency
- Reduce operational costs and complexity
- Enhance customer experiences
Simplify the Network
The Cisco ASR 9000 system incorporates innovative technologies such as Cisco Network Virtualization (nV) technology, which intelligently blends the edge, aggregation, and access points to simplify operation and accelerate IPv6 services. Two new nV enabled platforms provide additional flexibility and support to optimize service delivery.
The Cisco ASR 903 Series Aggregation Services Routers is ideal for sites requiring high performance with full redundancy in a compact footprint. The Cisco ASR 901 Series Aggregation Services Routers offers very low power consumption at cell sites for mobile backhaul applications.
Working together, the components of Cisco ASR 9000 system can provide the network scale needed to deliver new mobile Internet services while minimizing operational complexity.
Flexible Service Delivery and System Resiliency
The Cisco ASR 9000 Series is a true carrier-class solution. It features the modular, microkernel-based Cisco IOS XR Software operating system, comprehensive system redundancy, and a full complement of network resiliency schemes.
