Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers


Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers are the cornerstone for carrier edge networks.

They are specially designed to grow with your network and business needs—as a modular, high density, power efficient, and secure platform.  ASR 9000 Series is designed to streamline network operations while securely scaling your edge network’s performance.

Optimize your network, your way, with a purpose-built platform for simplifying the complex.

Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers General Introductions

Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers deliver exceptional scale, service flexibility, and high availability to Carrier Ethernet transport networks.

The routers are powered by widely deployed Cisco IOS XR 64 bit operating system, an innovative self-healing, distributed operating system designed for always-on operation. The ASR 9900 series set a new standard for Layer 2 and Layer 3 10GE/1GE service density and scale to support large-scale aggregation, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), and Satellite Network Virtualization (nV) System mode on the ASR 9000 Series Router. The ASR 9900 also supports industry-leading MAC-SEC encryption on all its port speeds. These versatile capabilities help operators qualify and stock one type of chassis that can be deployed in any combination of Layer 2, Layer 3, DCI, or aggregation applications, thereby reducing Capital Expenditures (CapEx) and Operating Expenses (OpEx), as well as reducing the time required to develop and deploy new services.

Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers bring increased power and simplicity to the edge, and the ASR 9000v sets the industry benchmark as a virtualized compact carrier-class converged access and aggregation platform. Using the Cisco “network virtualization” or nV technology, Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers offers exceptional pay-as-you-grow scale, carrier-class reliability, and simplified service provisioning. 

Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers Benefits

Cisco IOS XR Software modular operating system: Cisco ASR 9000 Series uses the Cisco IOS XR operating system, made famous by the highly successful Cisco CRS Carrier Routing System platform in core deployments. Built for distributed systems such as the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, the Cisco IOS XR operating system uses a microkernel architecture to achieve true modularity. This modularity provides the path to nonstop operations during software image upgrades or module changes, without affecting normal platform operations.

Fully distributed system: Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers operates in a fully distributed fashion; all packet-forwarding decisions and actions take place on the individual line cards. These high-density Ethernet line cards are equipped with a specialized network processor that provides a flexible programming infrastructure with high-density Hierarchical Quality-of-Service (H-QoS) services, security, and integrated Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). The distributed nature of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series improves resiliency by adding a new dimension in scale for features such as Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) and Ethernet Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (EOAM).
