Cisco ASR 903 Router Overview

The Cisco ASR 903 Router is a fully-featured routing platform designed for the cost-effective delivery of converged mobile and business services. With full redundancy, shallow depth, low power consumption and high service scale, this 3-rack-unit (3RU) router is optimized for small aggregation and remote point-of-presence (POP) applications. The Cisco ASR 903 Router provides a rich and scalable feature set of Legacy, Timing, Carrier Ethernet, Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) and Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN) services in a compact package.

The Cisco ASR 903 Router is a fully modular platform with support for 6-Interface Modules (IMs), two Route Switch Processor (RSP) slots, two power supplies and redundant fans. Cisco offers a wide choice of LAN and WAN interfaces available in speeds ranging from nxDS0 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The design of the Cisco ASR 903 Router delivers in-box hardware redundancy for all hardware components and supports software redundancy with In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) and Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF) support.
