Enhance Bandwidth, Facilitate Future Services

The Cisco ASR 9922 Router is the largest of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers at 43 rack units (RUs). This high-capacity platform is designed to deliver the services of tomorrow.

Providing increased bandwidth capabilities for network devices at low prices is one of the primary criteria for true carrier-transport platforms. The ASR 9000 Series can scale up to 96 Tbps per system, which provides an ideal foundation for a full suite of next-generation services.

While traditional service prices continue to decline, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series helps to establish a new financial reality. It facilitates reliable and scalable video, next-generation mobile aggregation, and advanced Carrier Ethernet service offerings.

Gain the Benefits of Fully Distributed Operations

With the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, all packet-forwarding decisions and actions occur on individual line cards. Its high-density Ethernet line cards are equipped with:

  • A flexible programming infrastructure
  • High-density Ethernet and advanced Ethernet services
  • Robust Hierarchical Quality of Service (H-QoS)
  • Wide-ranging security mechanisms
  • Integrated Synchronous Ethernet capabilities

The distributed implementation on the ASR 9000 Series extends to the control plane. It adds a new dimension in scale for features such as Bidirectional Fault Detection (BFD) and Ethernet Operations and Maintenance (E-OAM), for improved resiliency and comprehensive, automated instrumentation.
