Cisco A99-SFC2 is an advanced high-performance service card desinged specifically for the Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers. It is equipped with a range of features, making it suitable for a wide variety of enterprise data and communication needs. The Cisco A99-SFC2 provides customers with up to 800 Gbps of line-speed performance, with scalable forwarding capacity to support ultrahigh-density aggregate traffic. It includes FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module validation, as well as an advanced Layer 3 multicast routing module which have each been specifically designed for high-speed routing applications. The physical measurements of the Cisco A99-SFC2 card are 439.4 mm x 382.9 mm x 50.8 mm (HxWxD), making it well suited for installations in small or tight spaces. It is powered by two separate power supplies, each rated at 64V DC, 30A maximum output. The power supply operating temperature range is 0°C to 50°C, while the card operates between 0°C to 65°C. To handle communications between the router and other devices, the Cisco A99-SFC2 uses a single port GBIC interface. This allows the exchange of information between devices over Gigabit Ethernet, ATM, or Fibre Channel connections with speeds up to 800 Mbps. The card also boasts an internal buffer of 16 Mega Bytes for faster data transmission, and it supports Virtual Output Queues (VOQs) for more efficient packet classification in environments with heavy traffic loads. The Cisco A99-SFC2 supports Mobility Services Engine (MSE) by providing adequate wireless networking infrastructure to ensure uninterrupted wireless connectivity while controlling user access and policy management. With its advanced Layer 2 features, it allows service providers to configure IP QoS and QAA parameters in order to reduce errors and maximize throughput in multilayer network environments. Additionally, the card is designed with redundant supervisor engines for greater reliability and scalability should configuration changes take place on the network. The Cisco A99-SFC2 is the perfect high-performance solution for customers looking for multi-service high-speed performance in demanding enterprise networks. Its rich feature set makes it ideal for quickly responding to changes in the environment and keeping your communication infrastructure running smoothly and efficiently at all times.
