Cisco ASR 9922 Router

Enhance Bandwidth, Facilitate Future Services

The Cisco ASR 9922 Router is the largest of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers at 43 rack units (RUs). This high-capacity platform is designed to deliver the services of tomorrow.

Providing increased bandwidth capabilities for network devices at low prices is one of the primary criteria for true carrier-transport platforms. The ASR 9000 Series can scale up to 96 Tbps per system, which provides an ideal foundation for a full suite of next-generation services.

While traditional service prices continue to decline, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series helps to establish a new financial reality. It facilitates reliable and scalable video, next-generation mobile aggregation, and advanced Carrier Ethernet service offerings.

Gain the Benefits of Fully Distributed Operations

With the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, all packet-forwarding decisions and actions occur on individual line cards. Its high-density Ethernet line cards are equipped with:

  • A flexible programming infrastructure
  • High-density Ethernet and advanced Ethernet services
  • Robust Hierarchical Quality of Service (H-QoS)
  • Wide-ranging security mechanisms
  • Integrated Synchronous Ethernet capabilities

The distributed implementation on the ASR 9000 Series extends to the control plane. It adds a new dimension in scale for features such as Bidirectional Fault Detection (BFD) and Ethernet Operations and Maintenance (E-OAM), for improved resiliency and comprehensive, automated instrumentation.
