Overview of Cisco ASR 900 Series Routers
Cisco ASR 900 Series Router
The Cisco ASR 900 Series Router is a fully-featured routing platform designed for the cost-effective delivery of converged mobile and business services. With full redundancy, shallow depth, low power consumption and high service scale, this 3-rack-unit (3RU) router is optimized for small aggregation and remote point-of-presence (POP) applications. The Cisco ASR 900 Series Router provides a rich and scalable feature set of Legacy, Timing, Carrier Ethernet, Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) and Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN) services in a compact package.
The Cisco ASR 900 Series Router is a fully modular platform with support for 6-Interface Modules (IMs), two Route Switch Processor (RSP) slots, two power supplies and redundant fans. Cisco offers a wide choice of LAN and WAN interfaces available in speeds ranging from nxDS0 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The design of the Cisco ASR 900 Series Router delivers in-box hardware redundancy for all hardware components and supports software redundancy with In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) and Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF) support.
Cisco ASR 902 Router
The Cisco ASR 902 Router is a full-featured aggregation platform designed for cost-effective delivery of converged mobile and business services. With shallow depth, low power consumption, and an extended temperature range, this compact 2-rack unit (2RU) router provides high service scale and flexible hardware configuration.
Cisco ASR 903 Router
The Cisco ASR 903 Series Aggregation Services Router is a Cisco aggregation router product. This router uses an innovative and powerful forwarding technology known as the Cisco Carrier Ethernet ASIC.
The Cisco ASR 903 Series Router is a 6-Interface Module (IM), 3-RU, hardware-redundant chassis with two Route Switch Processor (RSP) slots, and six IM slots. It supports fully redundant RSPs that allow for full RSP hardware redundancy, NSF, ISSU, and future RSP service upgrades.
Cisco ASR 907 Router
The Cisco ASR 907 Router seven-rack (7RU) unit router that belongs to the Cisco ASR90x family of routers. This router complements Cisco’s offerings for IP RAN solutions for the GSM, UMTS, LTE and CDMA. Given its form-factor, interface types and Gigabit Ethernet density the Cisco ASR 907 Router can also be positioned as a Carrier Ethernet aggregation platform.
The Cisco ASR 907 Router is a cost optimized, fully redundant, centralized forwarding, extended temperature, and flexible pre-aggregation router.
