Cisco
2900 Series Integrated Services Routers build on 25 years of Cisco innovation
and product leadership. The new platforms are architected to enable the next phase of
branch-office evolution, providing rich media collaboration and virtualization to the
branch while maximizing operational cost savings The Integrated Services Routers
Generation 2 platforms are future-enabled with multi-core CPUs, support for high
capacity DSPs (Digital Signal Processors) for future enhanced video capabilities, high
powered service modules with improved availability, Gigabit Ethernet switching with
enhanced POE, and new energy monitoring and control capabilities while enhancing
®
overall system performance. Additionally, a new Cisco IOS
Software Universal image
and Services Ready Engine module enable you to decouple the deployment of
hardware and software, providing a flexible technology foundation which can quickly
adapt to evolving network requirements. Overall, the Cisco 2900 Series offer
unparalleled total cost of ownership savings and network agility through the intelligent
integration of market leading security, unified communications, wireless, and
application services.
