Rack Mount Chassis of ASR9001
Part Number: ASR9001

The Cisco ASR 9001 Router is a compact high-capacity Provider Edge (PE) router that delivers 120 Gbps of nonblocking, full-duplex fabric capacity in a two-rack-unit (2RU) form factor. Based on the same Cisco IOS XR software image as the other routers in the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, the Cisco ASR 9001 Router delivers the features and services found on the ASR 9000 Series platforms, allowing customers to standardize on the same Cisco IOS XR image. The Cisco ASR 9001 Router has an Integrated Route Switch Processor (RSP) and two modular bays that support 1 GE, 10 GE, and future 40 GE Modular Port Adapters (MPAs). The base chassis has four integrated 10 GE Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) ports, a GPS input for stratum-1 clocking, Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS) ports, and management ports.
