Product Overview

The Cisco® ASR 9900 Series 16-port 100 Gigabit Ethernet Service Edge line cards deliver industry-leading high density, with line-rate 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports, to any slot of a Cisco ASR 9900 Series Aggregation Services Router. These high-capacity line cards are 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. A single 100 Gigabit Ethernet port can now replace large 10 Gigabit Ethernet link aggregation bundles to simplify network operations. Based on QSFP technology, this line card has flexible interfaces that support 100 Gigabit Ethernet, 40 Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet modes, so it gives customers the flexibility to mix and match interface types on the same line card. These different interface modes can be configured easily through the Command Line Interface (CLI) without resetting or restarting the line card.

This line card also offers a “green design” that allows customers to place an unused slice in power-saving mode to reduce power consumption. With these capabilities, the ASR 9900 Series line card (Figure 1) and routers provide 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 9900 Series 16-port 100 Gigabit Ethernet Service Edge line card is fully compatible with the Cisco ASR 9904 Router, ASR 9906 Router, ASR 9910 Router, ASR 9912 Router, and ASR 9922 Router. However, the chassis may require a hardware update for the fabric cards, RP/RSP card, and cooling systems, because the line card offers high-density 100 Gigabit Ethernet throughput. The 16-port line card is designed to support full line rate, non-oversubscribed.

This line card, at such high density and scale, allows customers to reduce capital expenditures and operating expenses while offering highly predictable, managed transport services for core, peering, and various service edge applications. The Cisco QSFP breakout option further increases the capability of each line card to support large-scale aggregation and the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Satellite Network Virtualization (nV) System mode on the ASR 9900 Series Router.
