Service Integration Capability


The ARs integrate various services of routers, switches, and wireless devices, including voice, firewall, WLAN, 3G/LTE, and VPN.

Hardware Extensibility

The ARs provide the highest port density in the industry and flexible slot combination, allowing enterprise customers to connect to LAN, WAN, or wireless networks. The ARs provide the most economical enterprise network solutions.

The ARs support flexible slot combination. For example, two SIC slots can be combined into a wide SIC (WSIC) slot, two SIC slots and one WSIC slot below can be combined into one XSIC slot by removing guide rails, and two multiple-function slots (MFSs) can be combined into an SRU slots by removing the guide rail between them.

Remote Maintenance Capability

In addition to one-stop deployment, plug and play capability, and remote commissioning functions, the ARs manage the customer premises equipment (CPE) remotely. The remote maintenance function improves efficiency and greatly reduces maintenance costs.
