SAN JOSE, CA Cisco announced three new platforms in its ASR 9000 Series designed to support mobile Internet services and devices such as tablets, smartphones and connected appliances.

Powered by Cisco's nV (Network Virtualization) technology, which blends the network edge, aggregation and access layers into a single, 96 Tbps system, the new routing platforms will allow service providers to increase network capacity and accelerate IPv6 services. These platforms will also enable service providers to cost-effectively converge and manage residential, business and mobile services through virtual capabilities and resource sharing.

The three new platforms include:

  • ASR 901 cell site router -- a high-capacity, low-power router for 2G, 3G and 4G mobile cell sites


  • ASR 903 unified Ethernet access router -- a compact, fully redundant Ethernet access device for business, residential and mobile applications


  • ASR 9001 small edge router -- a smaller version of the popular ASR 9000 Series edge router for smaller deployments.


  • According to Cisco's Visual Networking Index Forecast 2010-2015, there will be nearly 15 billion network connections by 2015 - twice the world's population. Service providers are relying on advances such as Cisco nV technology and advanced routing capabilities to facilitate growing traffic while enabling new revenue-generating services.
