The Cisco Services-Ready Engine (SRE) modules are router blades for the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) that provide the capability to host Cisco, third-party, and custom applications. The modules have their own processors, storage, network interfaces, and memory that operate independently of the host router resources, helping ensure maximum concurrent routing and application performance. Moreover, the modules come in two compact form factors designed to reduce physical footprint, lower power consumption, and simplify hardware installation at the branch office. The Cisco SRE includes a software controller that enables you to install applications on the module remotely at any time. This solution can help your organization quickly deploy new branch-office applications on demand, reduce operating costs, and consolidate the branch-office infrastructure.
