The Cisco ASR 901S extends routing intelligence to the pole in order to break the small cell backhaul bottleneck for metrocell deployments. It features a flexible architecture that supports "any-G" from any vendor, and it dramatically reduces operating costs through zero-touch provisioning capabilities and extensive management tools.
The Cisco ASR 901S Series Aggregation Services Router is optimized for the backhaul of true multi-vendor heterogeneous small cell networks. As mobile operators look to aggressively deploy small cell networks in an effort to increase capacity and coverage, they will be challenged to do so without straining their capital and operational budgets.
The ASR 901S is designed specifically to ease these constraints and enable the wide scale deployment of small cell networks. The ASR 901S is a compact, environmentally hardened, low-power-consumption router that can be installed in the outside plant, without an enclosure.
The ASR 901S can be easily deployed in challenging locations such as lampposts, telephone poles, and sides of walls. By using the Cisco ASR 901S, operators can reduce backhaul operating costs, simplify deployment and provisioning, and enhance profit opportunities with premium mobile, as well as Ethernet services. The ASR 901S platform provides unique Cisco value to the small cell backhaul market.
