Cisco ASR 9000 Series Modular Chassis

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series is an operationally simple, future-optimized platform using next-generation hardware and software. The following are highlights of this next-generation platform:

      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 advanced timing capabilities, with PTP and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) support. 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. Cisco ASR 9000 Series also provides advanced power management to control power utilization. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series also provides space-optimized, high capacity compact-platform options.

      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.

      Cisco IOS XR Software modular operating system: The Cisco ASR 9000 Series uses the Cisco IOS XR operating system, which provides high quality, ultra-scale and rich features. The Cisco IOS XR operating system uses a microkernel architecture to achieve true modularity. This modularity provides the path to nonstop operations during software image upgrades or module changes, without affecting normal platform functionality.

      Optimized for IPv6: Cisco is delivering on our strategy of building out IPv6 next-generation networks to simplify design, deployment, and management of services for global service providers.

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series offers advanced switching capacity, optimized power consumption and cooling, high-availability design, and a modular operating system to significantly lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for service providers.

Solving the challenges of tomorrow, today

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series is built on the premise of addressing the challenges that service providers face when deploying current networks and planning for the networks of tomorrow:

      Power-efficient deployments: The Cisco ASR 9000 Series has a significantly improved energy-efficient design thanks to its low Watt/Gbps ratio. This amazing breakthrough ultimately translates to lower power costs, lower carbon footprint, and the ability to serve more customers and deliver more services in less rack space.

      Increasing Average Revenue Per User (ARPU): Service providers may increase the price models of existing services or increase the service offerings per user. Although traditional service prices continue to decline, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series helps establish a new financial reality by facilitating reliable and scalable next-generation converged service edge and advanced Carrier Ethernet service offerings.

      Managing services simply and efficiently: The Cisco ASR 9000 Series provides leading-edge network, device, and service management through a full complement of management solutions called Crosswork Network Automation. Cisco Crosswork Network Automation is a closed-loop, outcome-driven software suite used to deliver efficient mass-scale network operations across the services lifecycle. This is a scalable solution for operators of all-sized networks to accelerate mean-time-to-value by monetizing agile new services and minimizing mean-time-to-remediation to proactively prevent customer impacting issues. Combining these elements with a comprehensive set of Ethernet, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Segment Routing Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) capabilities, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series provides an operator-friendly environment.

      Network convergence: A common objective among service providers is to migrate their networks to a single, converged infrastructure that supports all services. This goal is compelling because it ultimately results in decreased CapEx and Operating Expenses (OpEx) because of a reduction in network elements. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series is a critical component in optimizing service-transport infrastructure because of its service flexibility, comprehensive feature set, wide interface capability, and transparent integration of Carrier Ethernet and WAN interfaces as the foundation for services delivery. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series provides a powerful single solution to the providers’ MultiService Edge (MSE), Ethernet-optimized MSE (E-MSE), and Carrier Ethernet needs.

      Meeting tomorrow’s service requirements: Designed into the Cisco ASR 9000 Series are critical capabilities supporting the services of tomorrow. Providing increased bandwidth capabilities for network devices at economically viable prices is one of the primary criteria for true carrier transport platforms. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series can scale to unprecedented levels, providing the ideal foundation for a full suite of next-generation services. Another crucial component for true network and service convergence is the integration of service intelligence in network elements. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series is designed to offer advanced subscriber management using silicon-based security services.

Hardware

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers provide unsurpassed speeds, up through 400 Gigabit Ethernet, with scale and high density. The Cisco ASR 9000 and ASR 9900 Series Routers provide flexible options for high density 1 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 25 Gigabit Ethernet, 40 Gigabit Ethernet, 100 Gigabit Ethernet and 400 Gigabit Ethernet ports without the need for a complete chassis replacement. These line cards, offered in base and extended-scale configurations, are complemented by the nonblocking fabric (on the RSP for the Cisco ASR 9006, ASR 9010, ASR 9906, ASR 9910 and ASR 9904 Routers and on separate fabric cards for the Cisco ASR 9906, ASR 9910, ASR 9912 and ASR 9922 Routers), and by the innovative backplane, thermal, and power infrastructure on the chassis.

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series has a modular power architecture available in both AC and DC. The power supplies are housed in field-serviceable Power Entry Modules (PEMs), which also come in AC and DC forms. Each PEM can hold up to three or four modules depending on its corresponding type, with no power zones or placement restrictions (mixing of AC and DC supplies is not supported). Service providers can add more power as their bandwidth and feature requirements increase over time, by adding more line cards to the chassis. This capability translates to lower CapEx initially and optimal OpEx over the product life.

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series also features a fully integrated timing infrastructure, allowing the routers to take in timing inputs (for example, SyncE, GPS, Building Integrated Timing Supply [BITS], and DOCSIS® Timing Interface [DTI]) and distribute them over the backplane to each slot. This capability allows extensive support for transparent mobile convergence, mobile Radio Access Network (RAN) backhaul, and Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) circuit emulation, without sacrificing performance or scale.

The optimized thermal infrastructure of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is designed to be scalable to support future capacity requirements. Variable-speed high-efficiency fans provide reduced power requirements under normal operating environments while retaining the capability to cool current and future line cards under extreme conditions.
