Introducing the Cisco ASR 9903 Router, a vital component of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series. This router stands as a compact, high-performance solution, boasting an impressive nonblocking, full-duplex capacity of up to 3.6 Tbps within a Three-Rack-Unit (3RU) form factor. Operating on the renowned Cisco IOS XR software image, the ASR 9903 aligns seamlessly with other routers in the ASR 9000 Series, ensuring uniformity in features and services under the Cisco IOS XR operating system. Remarkably versatile, the ASR 9903 accommodates various port rates, including 400 Gigabit Ethernet, 200 Gigabit Ethernet, 100 Gigabit Ethernet, 40 Gigabit Ethernet, 25 Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, empowering users to mix and match interface types effortlessly while standing prepared for large-scale networking endeavors.

Functioning as a fully redundant, high-performance multi-purpose platform, the ASR 9903 router finds application across a broad spectrum of scenarios and use-cases. From business PE and metro aggregation to cloud edge, Internet peering, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), and beyond, its compact design (600 mm depth), front-to-back airflow, support for PTP Telecom profiles, and varied port rates render it exceptionally efficient and adaptable for deployment at the mobile edge within 4G/5G networks. Moreover, enterprise clients can employ the ASR 9903 as a border router at the periphery of their network or as a peering router for seamless communication with Internet service providers.

Key Features and Advantages:

The ASR 9903 router boasts a power-optimized architecture with a high density of multi-rate ports and exceptional service scales, facilitating a reduction in both Capital Expense (CapEx) and Operating Expense (OpEx) while ensuring a highly predictable, flexibly managed service infrastructure.

Comprising two redundant Route Processors (RP), two integrated switch fabrics, 4 AC or DC power supply modules, and 4 fans in a redundant configuration, the Cisco ASR-9903-FC ASR 9903 Router embodies resilience and reliability.
