Cisco A901 - Benefits & Features


Cisco ASR 901 routers help service providers deliver advanced services and reduce operating costs for mobile backhaul and Carrier Ethernet access solutions. Key benefits include:

“Green” Hardware

Cisco ASR 901 routers help service providers reduce operating costs by optimising energy efficiency. The routers are designed for low power consumption with Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant, lead-free components.

Improved Analytics

The Cisco ASR 901 routers offer advanced traffic analytics and performance monitoring such as per-traffic-class metering, bidirectional packets, and byte statistics. The service offering is enhanced with comprehensive OAM functionality, including Layer 2 CFM, IP service-level agreements (SLAs) for Layer 3, and MPLS OAM and TDM advanced timing and synchronisation.


The Cisco ASR 901 routers deliver high performance and scale for all mobile and Carrier Ethernet services with support for:

  • Up to 32,000 MAC addresses
  • Up to 4,000 bridge domains
  • Various hierarchical queues

Timing Services

The Cisco ASR 901 routers provide the necessary timing services for today’s converged access networks by offering integrated support for the BITS, 10-MHz, 1 Pulse Per Second (PPS), and Time of Day (ToD) interfaces. The routers support SyncE on copper and optical ports and IEEE1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) clock recovery from T1/E1 ports.

Network Simplification

Cisco network virtualization (nV) technology reduces the number of components to manage and simplify network operations.
