Product Review

The Cisco ASR-9010-DC offers high redundancy with two redundant RSPs and N+1 power module redundancy, ensuring reliable network performance and minimal downtime. With eight line-card slots in a 36.75 x 17.38 x 29.03 inches chassis, it provides ample capacity for network expansion while maintaining a compact form factor suitable for both rack and cabinet mounting. However, its heavy weight at 155.6 lbs and the specific power input requirements (-40 to -72V; 50A Nominal) may limit flexibility in deployment and require careful planning in infrastructure design.


The Cisco ASR-9010-DC is designed for high-capacity carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS networks, delivering high performance, reliability, and scalability. This router features a vertical slot orientation and 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). It supports two redundant Route Switch Processors (RSPs) with integrated fabrics, ensuring high availability and system redundancy. Equipped with eight line-card slots, the ASR-9010-DC provides flexibility for a wide range of network configurations and services. It is designed for 19-inch rack mounting and can also be mounted in a cabinet, catering to different installation environments. The thermal management system consists of two fan trays, each housing six fans, ensuring optimal cooling for the system's high-performance components. The power infrastructure of the ASR-9010-DC is designed for efficiency and redundancy, with power modules available in 4.4 kW and 2.1 kW options, supporting an N+1 redundancy configuration. It operates on an input power range of -40 to -72V at a nominal 50A, accommodating various power supply sources. The airflow is designed from front to back, complementing the cooling system to maintain the optimal operating temperature between 5 °C and 40 °C, with relative humidity levels from 5% (non-condensing) to 90% (non-condensing). For storage, the device can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C and relative humidity from 5% to 93%, ensuring that the hardware remains functional across diverse environmental conditions. The operating altitude range extends from -60 to 4000 meters, making it suitable for deployment in a wide range of geographical locations. The Cisco ASR-9010-DC adheres to stringent industry standards and regulations, including NEBS SR-3580 (Level 3), GR-1089-CORE, and GR-63-CORE for NEBS compliance, along with VZ.TPR.9205 for Verizon TEEER. It also meets safety specifications such as UL/CSA/IEC/EN 60950-1 and others, ensuring the device's safety and reliability in operational environments. Key features include: -
  • Two redundant RSPs with integrated fabrics for high system availability.
  • Eight line-card slots offering scalability and flexibility in network configurations.
  • Compliance with NEBS, safety, and environmental standards, ensuring reliability and operational safety.
The ASR-9010-DC runs on Cisco IOS XR software, providing advanced features and protocols for network optimization, security, and management.
