Cisco Launched ASR 9000 Router

Yesterday Cisco has launched ASR 9000 series routers for service provider network. For more you can view Cisco ASR As per Pankaj patel "There’s a lot to digest there, but in summary, I look at this as a great example of Cisco innovation - it took four years and more than two hundred people to design what our service provider customers need in anticipation of things to come. While Ira’s journey may be over, the journey of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is just beginning. And the journey of Cisco, bringing innovative solutions to market to help us all achieve the infinite possibilities the network has to offer is still strongly and resolutely continuing."
Cisco Systems unveiled a supercharged router called the ASR 9000, which is capable of moving 6.4 terabytes per second of traffic. The router is aimed at service providers with next-generation networks which plan to run bandwidth heavy services such as video, IPTV, mobile broadband, and more. With the explosion of Youtube videos, and other bandwidth-hungry apps, service providers are looking to stay ahead of the bandwidth demand curve. The ASR 9000 hopes to address that need with the ability to support the future "Zettabyte era". The ASR 9000 router is capable of transmitting data at a rate of 6.4 trillion bits per second, and it has 10 times the bandwidth capacity of Cisco's ASR 1000 router.
The Cisco ASR 9000 Series also features a fully integrated timing infrastructure, allowing the routers to take in timing inputs (Synchronous Ethernet, Building Integrated Timing Supply [BITS], Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification [DOCSIS] Timing Interface [DTI] etc.) and distribute them over the backplane to each slot. This capability allows rich support for transparent mobile convergence; mobile Radio Access Network (RAN) backhaul; and Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) circuit emulation, without sacrificing performance or scale.

Currently it is coming in two flavours 9006 & 9010. For datasheets kindly follow the download link
