Product Review

The CISCO ASR-9010-DC-V2 offers significant capacity with a maximum of 14 Tbps, supported by 880 Gbps bandwidth per slot across its 8 line-card slots, catering well to high-demand network environments. However, its substantial size and weight (36.75 x 17.5 x 28.65 inches and 155.6 lbs respectively) may pose challenges for space-constrained installations. Additionally, the system's reliance on front-to-back airflow and specific input power requirements (-40 to -72 V; 50 A nominal, 60 A maximum) necessitates careful consideration of cooling and power infrastructure in deployment settings.


The Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 is a core router designed to meet the requirements of high-capacity carrier Ethernet networks. This router is engineered to deliver high performance, reliability, and scalability, ensuring efficient operation and management of network infrastructure. The Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 is part of Cisco's Aggregation Services Router (ASR) series, which is renowned for its ability to handle massive data volumes with ease. At the heart of the Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 are two Route Switch Processors (RSPs), which provide the processing power necessary to manage and route traffic efficiently. The device is equipped with eight line-card slots, allowing for a customizable configuration that can be tailored to specific network requirements. Each slot is capable of handling up to 880 Gbps bandwidth, contributing to the router's total capacity of up to 14 Tbps. This immense capacity ensures that the router can support even the most bandwidth-intensive applications without compromising on performance. Measuring 36.75 inches in height, 17.5 inches in width, and 28.65 inches in depth, and weighing 155.6 lbs, the Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 is designed for a 21 RU rack space. Its compact form factor and rack mounting compatibility make it an ideal choice for data centers with space constraints. The router supports cabinet mounting but is not suitable for wall mounting, emphasizing its role in large-scale, rack-mounted deployments. The Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 features a front-to-back airflow mechanism supported by two fan trays, ensuring optimal cooling even under heavy load. This cooling strategy is critical for maintaining the router's performance and reliability over time. The device's power system is designed to operate within a -40 to -72 V range, with a 50 A nominal and a 60 A maximum input power requirement, highlighting its efficiency in power consumption. Fabric architecture in the Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 is designed with 1+1 fabric redundancy, ensuring uninterrupted service by providing a backup in the event of a fabric module failure. This redundancy is crucial for maintaining service availability and minimizing downtime in critical network infrastructure. In terms of environmental specifications, the Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 operates within a temperature range of 5 °C to 40 °C and can withstand relative humidity levels from 5% (non-condensing) to 90% (non-condensing). Its storage conditions are also robust, with temperature tolerances from -40 °C to 75 °C and humidity levels from 5% to 93%, ensuring that the router remains functional even in challenging environmental conditions. The Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 runs on Cisco IOS XR software, which offers advanced features and capabilities for network management, including comprehensive security, quality of service (QoS), and multicast features. This software platform is designed for high availability and scalability, supporting the complex requirements of modern network environments. Key highlights of the Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 include: -
  • 14 Tbps maximum capacity for handling high-volume network traffic.
  • Support for up to two Route Switch Processors (RSPs) and eight line-card slots, offering flexibility and scalability.
  • Front-to-back airflow and 1+1 fabric redundancy, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.
Overall, the Cisco ASR-9010-DC-V2 stands out as a powerful and scalable solution for carrier Ethernet networks, offering high capacity, reliability, and flexibility to meet the demanding requirements of modern network infrastructures.
