This is a modified version of the 7705 SAR that addresses Ethernet and IP/MPLS infrastructure through multiservice adjustment, accumulation and routing of 2G, 3G and LTE mobile traffic. This particular type is created for 10 rack units for 18 accessible slots. There are 2 slots dedicated to control and switch modules while the remaining slots are dedicated to user traffic adapter cards. Even further, 75% of the adapter card slots support 2.5 Gb/s connectivity while the remaining support 10 Gb/s.

The 7705 SAR-18 opens up a variety of methods to improve network connectivity through Ethernet, FE, GigE, n x T1/E1 MLPPP, and n x T1/E1 ATM IMA. The scalable configuration allows for better control/switch modules and uplinks.
