Meeting High Data Demand with a Small Form Factor

The Cisco ASR 9904 Router provides dense, line-rate 10 GE and 100 GE connectivity in space-constrained environments. Each slot is capable of switching up to 2 Tbps of bi-directional traffic. That means the ASR-9904 can scale up to 4 Tbps of switching capacity without the need for a complete chassis replacement.

Features and Capabilities

The Cisco ASR 9904 Router offers the same innovations for high capacity brought by the Cisco ASR 9922 and Cisco ASR 9912 Routers. In addition, it offers:

  • A small 6 rack-unit (RU) form factor
  • 2 line-card slots
  • 1+1 redundancy with two route switch processors (RSPs)
  • The same modular power design common to the ASR 9000 Series Routers

When combined with its capability to host for nV Satellites, the ASR 9904 offers support for massive GE fan outs. It also supports full line-rate for 10 GE and 100 GE interfaces, all within the same compact chassis.
