Product Review

The Cisco ASR-9010-AC offers high availability with its dual redundant RSPs and integrated fabrics, ensuring minimal downtime. However, its considerable weight of 155.6 lbs and dimensions of 36.75 x 17.38 x 29.03 inches may pose challenges for deployment in space-constrained environments. It supports a wide range of operating conditions, but its power requirements of 200-240 V; 50-60 Hz; 16 A maximum and the need for front-to-back airflow necessitate careful planning in power and cooling infrastructure.


The Cisco ASR-9010-AC is a high-capacity router designed for the demanding needs of large networks. It measures 36.75 inches in height, 17.38 inches in width, and 29.03 inches in depth, with a weight of 155.6 lbs for the chassis including the Power Entry Module (PEM). This router is engineered to support a range of networking requirements with its vertical slot orientation and ability to be mounted in a 19-inch rack or a cabinet, ensuring flexibility in deployment. Key to its design are two Redundant Route Processors (RSPs) with integrated fabrics, providing the necessary redundancy and high availability for critical network infrastructure. The ASR-9010-AC features eight line-card slots, offering ample room for expansion and customization according to specific network needs. Powering the device, options for power modules include both 6 kW and 3 kW units, with a redundancy configuration of N+N to ensure uninterrupted operation. It operates within a power input range of 200-240 V, 50-60 Hz, with a maximum current of 16 A. The system's thermal management is handled by two fan trays, each housing six fans, maintaining optimal operating conditions with a front-to-back airflow direction. - Operating temperatures range from 5 °C to 40 °C, with relative humidity tolerances from 5% (non-condensing) to 90% (non-condensing) for operation. - Storage conditions range from -40 °C to 70 °C, with humidity tolerances from 5% to 93%. - The ASR-9010-AC is capable of operating at altitudes from -60 to 4000 meters. Compliance with numerous standards and regulations is a hallmark of the ASR-9010-AC, including NEBS Level 3 for reliability in challenging environments, and safety specifications such as UL/CSA/IEC/EN 60950-1. It also meets laser safety requirements per IEC/EN 60825 and FDA regulations, among others. The router runs on Cisco IOS XR software, a network operating system built for scalability and resilience. This software platform offers advanced features designed to meet the needs of modern IP networking and supports a suite of protocols and technologies, ensuring the ASR-9010-AC can handle the diverse requirements of enterprise and service provider networks. In summary, the Cisco ASR-9010-AC is engineered for high performance, reliability, and scalability. Its robust feature set, including support for redundant route processors, a variety of power options, and comprehensive environmental compliance, makes it an ideal choice for networks that require high capacity and uninterrupted service. Whether deployed in a data center or a network node, this router is built to support the most demanding network environments, providing a solid foundation for growth and technological evolution.
