Features and benefits


Enhanced features

Essential branch network services are all in one box, saving CapEx and reducing service calls. Increase TCO from energy savings, wire-free setup, and one service contract. Gain consistent management and network services across all your servers.


Optimized for performance

These servers are x86 64-bit service modules that reside in Cisco 4000 Series ISR platforms. They balance simplicity, performance, reliability, and power efficiency and are well suited for distributed branch offices with small IT footprint.


Exceptional memory

Our 6-core Intel, single-wide compute blade has up to 32 GB memory and 4 TB storage with 10-GE connectivity to host twice as much network and application services.


Price-optimized engines

E-Series Network Compute Engines are computing modules that are price-optimized. The zero-footprint form factor of the NCEs makes them ideal for hosting Cisco network and other lightweight applications.


Supports a variety of use cases

Network applications include Cisco Virtual Wide Area Application Services, Cisco Virtual Wireless LAN Controller, Cisco Unity Connection, Cisco ISR with FirePOWER Services, Cisco Energy Management, and others.


Supports many business applications

Examples include Cisco Unity Connection, MediaSense, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Firepower, security (ASAv), WAN optimization and Akamai, wireless LAN controllers, Video Surveillance Manager, Network Analysis Module, and others.
