The Cisco® ASR 901S Series Aggregation Services Routers are optimized for the backhaul of true multivendor heterogeneous small cell networks. As mobile operators seek to aggressively deploy small cell networks in an effort to increase capacity and coverage, they will be challenged to do so without straining their capital and operational budgets. The Cisco ASR 901S Series is designed specifically to ease these constraints and enable the wide-scale deployment of small cell networks. The ASR 901S Routers are compact, environmentally hardened, low-power-consumption routers that you can install in an outside plant without an enclosure. You can deploy them easily in challenging locations such as on lampposts, telephone poles, and sides of walls. With the Cisco ASR 901S, you can reduce backhaul operating costs, simplify deployment and provisioning, and enhance your profit opportunities with premium mobile and Ethernet services.

To implement a small cell network successfully requires far more cell sites than in macro networks, and thus significantly more backhaul links. Although small cell networks will inevitably become a reality, service providers are challenged to create an affordable, customized, and flexible backhaul environment that addresses this wide-scale network deployment. A critical requirement is that the small cells must be small enough to mount in challenging low-profile environments such as lampposts. A significant concern is effectively and efficiently delivering sufficient bandwidth to each of these locations. Although small cell backhaul routers require functions similar to those of existing cell-site routers for macro radios, they do have very distinct mechanical requirements to support outdoor deployments. The Cisco ASR 901S is designed to meet service provider requirements for flexible, scalable, and cost-optimized small cell backhaul networks.

This Cisco ASR 901S platform provides distinctive Cisco value to the small cell backhaul market:

  • Flexible architecture that supports true multivendor "any-G" heterogeneous radio technology and backhaul topologies
  • Dramatically reduced operating expenses (OpEx) and total cost of ownership (TCO) through zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) capabilities and extensive management tools
  • Unsurpassed user experiences through Cisco's best-in-class routing and comprehensive operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) capabilities
