Cisco AS5x00 Universal Access Server Series

The AS5x00 series products are high-performance, medium- to high-density universal access servers that deliver hybrid asynchronous serial and ISDN line service to accommodate both mobile users and high-bandwidth dedicated telecommuters. By terminating both analog modem and ISDN calls on the same chassis from the same trunk line, the AS5x00 enables ISPs and enterprise network managers to meet traditional analog dial access needs while supporting the growing demand for high-speed ISDN access. The AS5x00 contains the functionality of CSUs, channel banks, communication servers, switches, routers, ISDN capabilities, and up to 120 56K digital modems tightly integrated in one standalone chassis, making it ideal for mixed-media environments. The AS5x00 does the following:

• Reduces costs by providing universal access via one trunk line for all calls (async and ISDN)

• Protects investment through modular design that can change and grow

• Protects investment in legacy systems by offering easy integration and support for a wide range of protocols through Cisco IOS software

• Minimizes security issues through multiprotocol security levels Table E-15 lists the products in the AS5200 product family.
