Cisco Part Number: A9K-20HG-FLEX-TR is a Cisco ASR 9000 2T Packet Transport Combo Line Card - 5th Generation

The 5th Generation High-Density Multi-Rate Line Cards within the Cisco ASR 9000 Series offer unparalleled density, featuring line-rate 100, 200, and 400 Gigabit Ethernet ports, adaptable to any slot within a Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router. Engineered to tackle bandwidth constraints arising from surging Video-on-Demand (VoD), IPTV, point-to-point video, Internet video, and cloud services traffic, these high-capacity line cards are a strategic solution.

A single 100 Gigabit Ethernet port has the prowess to supplant bulky 10 Gigabit Ethernet link aggregation bundles, streamlining network operations. Leveraging QSFP technology, these line cards boast versatile interfaces accommodating 400 Gigabit Ethernet, 200 Gigabit Ethernet, 100 Gigabit Ethernet, 40 Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet modes. This flexibility empowers customers to blend interface types seamlessly on the same line card, while ensuring operators are primed for large-scale networking endeavors.

Configuration of diverse interface modes is a breeze via the Command Line Interface (CLI), sans the need for line card resets or restarts. Employing a sustainable "green design," these line cards empower customers to activate power-saving mode for unused slices, thereby curbing power consumption.

Equipped with such capabilities, the ASR 9000 Series line cards and routers serve as the cornerstone for building scalable Carrier Ethernet and IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) networks. These networks underpin the delivery of lucrative business, residential, and mobile services, laying the groundwork for sustainable growth.

The Cisco A9K-20HG-FLEX-TR line cards offer versatile connectivity options. They feature 20 ports capable of supporting 100G, 5 ports for 200G, or 5 ports for 400G, with a cumulative capacity not exceeding 2T. Additionally, through a per-port licensing arrangement, five of the 20 ports can be upgraded to support 400GE. These line cards utilize QSFP28/QSFP-DD form factor transceivers and are compatible with any of the modular chassis within the ASR 9000 Series.

The packet-transport-optimized line card is designed for customer deployments requiring basic service scale.
