The Cisco A9K-4X100GE-SE part of the Cisco® ASR 9000 Series 4-port Line Card and 8-port 100 Gigabit Ethernet Line Cards deliver industry-leading high density, with line-rate 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports, to any slot of a Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router. These high-capacity line cards are designed to remove bandwidth bottlenecks in the network that are caused by a large increase in Video-on-Demand (VoD), IPTV, point-to-point video, Internet video, and cloud services traffic. A single 100 Gigabit Ethernet port can now replace large 10 Gigabit Ethernet link aggregation bundles to simplify network operations. Based on Cisco CPAK™ technology, this line card has flexible interfaces that support 100 Gigabit Ethernet, 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet modes, so it gives customers the flexibility to mix and match interface types on the same line card.
Both the ASR 9000 Series 4-port and 8-port 100 Gigabit Ethernet line cards are fully compatible with Cisco ASR 9006 Router, ASR 9010 Router, ASR 9904 Router, ASR 9906 Router, ASR 9910 Router, ASR 9912 Router, and ASR 9922 Router. However, their chassis may require a hardware update for the cooling and power systems, because the line cards offer industry-leading, high-density 100 Gigabit Ethernet throughput. The 4-port and 8-port line cards are both designed to support full line rate in non-oversubscribed fashion.
In fact, the line cards set a new standard for Layer 2 and Layer 3 service density and scale, allowing operators to offer highly predictable, managed transport services while optimizing the use of network assets. The 10x10G Cisco CPAK breakout option further increases the capability of each line card to support large-scale aggregation, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), and the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Satellite Network Virtualization (nV) System mode on the ASR 9000 Series Router. These versatile capabilities help operators qualify and stock one type of line card that can be deployed in any combination of Layer 2, Layer 3, DCI, or aggregation applications, thereby reducing capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating expenses (OpEx), as well as reducing the time required to develop and deploy new services.
