Product Review

The Cisco A9K-AC-PEM power supply operates within a wide range of temperatures and has a comprehensive compliance with NEBS Level 3 and various ETSI and EMC standards, ensuring reliability in diverse network environments. However, its operating temperature range, while sufficient for most settings, may limit deployment in extreme conditions without additional climate control measures. Additionally, the power supply's adherence to numerous EMC standards highlights its capability to minimize electromagnetic interference, crucial for maintaining network integrity in densely populated equipment areas.


The Cisco A9K-AC-PEM is designed to deliver reliable power supply and ensure operational efficiency across a range of environmental conditions. This power entry module (PEM) supports the Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers, offering a seamless power solution to meet the demands of modern network infrastructures. At the heart of its specifications, the A9K-AC-PEM operates within a nominal temperature range of 41ºF (5ºC) to 104ºF (40ºC), ensuring stability and performance under typical working conditions. For environments that experience more extreme temperatures, the A9K-AC-PEM can operate short-term in temperatures as low as 23ºF (-5ºC) and as high as 131ºF (55ºC) for the ASR 9006 and 122ºF (50ºC) for the ASR 9010, respectively. This flexibility in operating temperatures makes it suitable for a wide array of deployment scenarios. Humidity levels are equally well accommodated, with the device capable of operating under nominal relative humidity ranges from 5% to 90%. This broad range ensures that the A9K-AC-PEM can function effectively in both dry and humid environments without compromise. For storage, the module can withstand temperatures from -40ºF (-40ºC) to 158ºF (70ºC) and relative humidity from 5% to 93%, safeguarding the hardware during transit or when not in use. The A9K-AC-PEM is also designed to perform reliably at various altitudes, with an operational range from -60 meters to 4000 meters. This feature ensures that the device can be deployed in a diverse range of geographical locations, from below sea level to high-altitude sites. In terms of standards compliance, the Cisco A9K-AC-PEM meets a comprehensive list of requirements, ensuring its suitability for deployment in a wide range of network environments: - Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS) compliance includes Level 3 certification, ensuring robust physical protection and EMC safety under SR-3580, GR-1089-CORE, and GR-63-CORE standards. Additionally, it meets Verizon TEEER requirements under VZ.TPR.9205. - The device adheres to ETSI standards, including EN300 386 for Telecommunications Network Equipment (EMC), and various ETSI 300 019 standards for storage, transportation, and stationary use, indicating its resilience and reliability across different operational scenarios. - EMC standards emissions compliance is broad, covering FCC Class A under 47CFR15, ICES 003 Class A, AS/NZS CISRP22 Class A, CISPR 22 (EN55022) Class A, VCCI Class A, BSMI Class A, and more. This extensive compliance ensures minimal electromagnetic interference with other devices and adherence to international safety standards. In summary, the Cisco A9K-AC-PEM is a versatile and compliant power entry module, designed to support the Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers across a variety of environmental conditions and regulatory landscapes.
