- Fully distributed system
The Cisco ASR 9000 series operates in a fully distributed fashion; all packet-forwarding decisions and actions take place on the individual line cards. These high-density Ethernet line cards are equipped with a specialized network processor that provides a flexible programming infrastructure with high-density hierarchical quality-of-service (H-QoS) services, security, and integrated Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). The distributed nature of the Cisco ASR 9000 series improves resiliency by adding a new dimension in scale for features such as Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) and Ethernet Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (EOAM).
- Operationally efficient and redundant hardware
The Cisco ASR 9000 series provides an infrastructure where all common components, route switch processors (RSPs), route processors (RPs), switching fabric, fans and power supplies are redundant. In addition, the platform is designed to use power on an as-needed basis, depending on system requirements. Power has been modularized for a true pay-as-you-grow approach, reducing capital expenditures (CapEx) and providing an operationally efficient deployment. The Cisco ASR 9000 series also provides a space-optimized small-platform option that uses the common components of the series and retains a central-office deployment-ready capability.
- Environmentally conscious design
In today's world of increasing awareness of human impact on the environment and the resultant fiscal implications, Cisco ASR 9000 series Routers bring a fresh new "conscious" approach to product development. From optimal thermal design to the architecture of the power infrastructure, from the placement of line-card components to the pitch of each slot, every design aspect has one goal in mind: reduced environmental impact through lowered power consumption and decreased cooling requirements. Even the product packaging process was evaluated to minimize the use of packaging material and thereby reduce waste at customer locations. The Cisco ASR 9000 series is an example of the continued Cisco commitment to efficient and future-friendly product design.
The Cisco ASR 9000 series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 9000 series) represent an exciting paradigm in edge and core routing, with exceptional scalability, carrier-class reliability, environmentally conscious design, incredible flexibility, and an attractive price-to-performance benchmark. 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.
