Description: Cisco ASR 9000 Series SPA Interface Processor 700 - Expansion module (pack of 2)
Mfr Part #: A9K-SIP-700-2PK=
MSRP: $80,000.00The Cisco ASR 9000 Series SPA Interface Processor (SIP) extends the unprecedented scale and flexibility of Cisco's flagship edge router. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series represent an exciting new paradigm in the world of routing with exceptional layer 2 and layer 3 scalability, carrier-class reliability, environmentally conscious design, incredible flexibility, and an enticing price-to-performance benchmark. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series also offers service- and application-level intelligence focused on optimized video delivery and mobile aggregation. Finally, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is designed to simplify and enhance the operational and deployment aspects of service-delivery networks.
The Cisco ASR 9000 Series SPA Interface Processor 700 (A9K-SIP-700) uses established hardware and software designs to accelerate the introduction of varied physical layers and help achieve a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). It is an integral part of the multi-service edge (MSE), Ethernet MSE (E-MSE) and mobile backhaul capabilities on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series. Through the use of its scalable Ethernet line cards and the A9K-SIP-700 line card, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series brings convergence to IP Radio Access Networks (IP RANs) by allowing coexistence of both Ethernet and time-division multiplexing (TDM) interfaces in the same highly scalable platform.
The Cisco ASR 9000 Series allows operators to deploy any combination of layer 2 and layer 3 service applications at an industry-leading price-to-performance ratio. The Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 is designed to complement this ability by, over time, extending the same scalability and reliability to the realm of traditional transport media such as TDM, frame relay, ATM, and POS, thereby reducing capital expenditures and operating expenses, as well as reducing the time required to develop and deploy new services. It also allows service providers to continue their deployed services, keeping those revenue streams open.
