Cisco Aggregation Services Router

March 04, 2008

To help service provider and enterprise edge networks simultaneously host resource-intensive integrated data, voice and video business and consumer services, Cisco introduces the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000 Series). This platform features software virtualization to enable "instant-on" provisioning and simultaneous use of a wide range of service functionality, including firewall, IPSec VPNs, deep-packet inspection (DPI) and Session Border Control (SBC). Such capabilities eliminate the need to deploy multiple single-function appliances in addition to a router, offering savings in capital costs, operations expenses and reducing users' carbon footprints.
