Product Review

The Cisco AS54XM-AC-RPS offers a solid operational temperature range from 32°F to 104°F and a broad input voltage range, accommodating various environmental conditions and power supplies. However, its weight of 35 lbs when fully loaded and dimensions may limit its suitability in space-constrained installations. Additionally, while it boasts a high MTBF of 165,000 hours, indicating reliability, the maximum sound pressure level of 55 dBA requires consideration in environments where noise is a concern.


The Cisco AS54XM-AC-RPS is designed to meet the rigorous demands of high-density voice and data networking, offering a versatile and powerful solution for enterprises and service providers. This device encapsulates a blend of performance, reliability, and scalability within its compact form factor, making it an essential component for modern networking infrastructures. With dimensions of 3.5 inches in height (2RU), 17.5 inches in width (2RU), and 18.25 inches in depth (2RU), the chassis is built to fit standard equipment racks efficiently, optimizing space in crowded data centers. The fully loaded CT3 configuration weighs in at 35 pounds (15.8 kg), highlighting its dense, feature-rich design. Operating conditions are broad, with the device functioning normally from 32°F to 104°F (0°C to 40°C) and at elevations down to -200 feet (-61 m). It can also operate within a humidity range of 5 to 95 percent noncondensing, ensuring reliability across various environmental conditions. The Cisco AS54XM-AC-RPS supports an input power range of 150W to 350W maximum, accommodating different levels of operational demand. For the AC unit, the input voltage spans from 95 to 260 VAC, with a maximum input current of 3A at 120VAC and a typical input current of less than 2A. The input frequency range is 47 to 63 Hz. The DC unit, adhering to telco standards for positive ground, accepts an input voltage of 40 to 70 VDC. Its maximum input current is 7.2A with NP108 based voice configuration and 3.75A with AS5x-FC based voice configuration. Heat dissipation reaches up to 1190 Btu/hr at maximum and 525 Btu/hr typically, ensuring that the device maintains optimal performance by effectively managing thermal output. For AC systems, an 18 AWG, 15-amp IEC 320 Type C5 standard cable is supplied, ensuring reliable power connectivity. DC systems require a 12-14 AWG stranded copper wire for power connection. Storage conditions are also versatile, with a minimum temperature tolerance of -40°F (-40°C) and a maximum of 185°F (85°C), catering to a wide range of environments for storage. The acoustics are designed to maintain a low noise level, with a maximum sound pressure level of 55 dBA at 1 meter, minimizing noise pollution in working environments.
  • Reliability is a key aspect of the Cisco AS54XM-AC-RPS, boasting a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 165,000 hours per chassis at 104°F (40°C), 120 VAC, and -48 VDC at 140W.
  • It offers flexible power input options, accommodating both AC and DC power sources to meet various installation requirements.
  • The device is designed for efficient heat management, ensuring sustained operation through optimal heat dissipation.
