Bias-Free Language

The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Product overview

Cisco® ASR 9000 4-port 100 Gigabit Ethernet LAN line card delivers line-rate 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports to any slot of a Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router. This line card provides carrier-class reliability and is designed to remove bandwidth bottlenecks in the network that are caused by a large increase in Video-on-Demand (VoD), IPTV, point-to-point video, Internet video, and cloud services traffic. This 4-port 100 Gigabit line card uses 100G Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable (QSFP) optics. It also provides the flexibility to break 100GE ports into four 10GE channels for a total of 16 10GE channels per line card. Using a “green design,” this low powered line card further allows customers put an unused slice in power-saving mode to reduce power consumption. With these capabilities, the ASR 9000 Series 4-port 100-GE LAN line card (Figure 1) provides the fundamental infrastructure for scalable Carrier Ethernet and IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) networks, promoting profitable business, residential, and mobile services.

Features and benefits

The ASR 9000 Series 4-port 100-GE LAN line card are fully compatible with the ASR 9006, ASR 9010, ASR 9904, ASR 9906, ASR 9910, ASR 9912 and ASR 9922 Routers. These line cards are designed for transport integration in high-density 100G environments, deliver line-rate packet performance for IP and MPLS transport, and operate at an incredibly low-power profile, thereby lowering total network operating expenses.

The ASR 9000 Series can extend 100 Gigabit Ethernet transport over an IP-over-Dense-Wave-Division-Multiplexing (IPoDWDM) network when used with the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM transponder solution. Distances of up to 3000 kilometers can be achieved while using the optical protection capabilities of the DWDM network.

Table 1 lists the features and benefits of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series line card. Specific feature and scale support is hardware- and software-dependent.
