How to Order Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers?

March 6 2017 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Networking, #Cisco Routers

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series (Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers) consists of nine platforms:

  • Cisco ASR 1001-X Router
  • Cisco ASR 1001-HX Router
  • Cisco ASR 1002-HX Router
  • Cisco ASR 1002-X Router
  • Cisco ASR 1004 Router
  • Cisco ASR 1006 Router
  • Cisco ASR 1006-X Router
  • Cisco ASR 1009-X Router
  • Cisco ASR 1013 Router

All models use the innovative and powerful Cisco Flow Processor and support the same feature set based on the Cisco IOS XE Operating System.

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers

The latest additions to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series are the Cisco ASR 1002-HX Router and the Cisco ASR 1001-HX Router. Both new routers support up to 100 Gbps in a 2-rack-unit (2RU) and 60 Gbps in a 1-rack-unit (1RU) form factor, respectively. The ASR 1002-HX has 8 built-in 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports and 8 1 GE ports, with the Ethernet port adapter (EPA) slot for expansion. The ASR 1001-HX has 4 built-in 10 GE ports, 8 1 GE ports, and 4 configurable 10 GE or 1 GE ports.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 3 is the newest addition to the modular control plane engines in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series. The Route Processor 3 adds more options for higher performance, memory, and storage to the ASR 1000 Series.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series supports Cisco IOS XE Software, a modular operating system with modular packaging, feature velocity, and powerful resiliency.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors (ESPs), which are based on Cisco Flow Processor technology, accelerate many advanced features such as crypto-based access security; Network Address Translation (NAT), thread defense with Cisco Zone-Based Firewall (ZBFW), deep packet inspection (DPI), Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE), and a diverse set of data-center-interconnect (DCI) features. These services are implemented in Cisco IOS XE Software without the need for additional hardware support.

Cisco ASR 1000 Series routers sit at the edge of your enterprise data center or large office connecting to the WAN, as well as in service provider points of presence (POPs).

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series will benefit the following types of customers:

● Enterprises experiencing explosive network traffic as mobility, cloud networking, and video and collaboration usage increase: Cisco ASRs consolidate these various traffic streams and apply traffic management and redundancy properties to them to maintain consistent performance among enterprise sites and cloud locations.

● Network service providers needing to deliver high-performance services, such as DCI and branch-office server aggregation, to business customers: Service providers can also use the multiservice routers to deploy hosted and managed services to business and multimedia services to residential customers.

● Existing Cisco 7200 Series Router (end-of-sale) customers looking for simple migration to a new multiservice platform that delivers greater performance with the same design.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers carry a modular yet integrated design, so network operators can increase their network capacity and services without a hardware upgrade. With flexibility in the number of connections, speed maximums, and price, you don’t have to under- or overprovision for any network location.

Alternatively, you also have the option to buy “-X” and “-HX” models, so you can increase throughput by simply purchasing upgrade licenses as you grow to increase your network speed dynamically.

Software Licensing

Software feature licenses are required to activate services on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers. Currently, two types of feature licenses are available. Certain services require only a right-to-use (RTU) license, whereas other services require both an RTU license and one or more number-of-sessions licenses. All the licenses on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series are honor-based, meaning that the licenses are not enforced through a product activation or license key.

For Cisco ASR 1000 Routers, one of the following five packages is required:

  • Cisco ASR 1000 IOS XE UNIVERSAL - NO PAYLOAD ENCRYPTION
  • Cisco ASR 1000 IOS XE UNIVERSAL
  • Cisco ASR 1000 IOS XE UNIVERSAL WITHOUT Lawful Intercept
  • Cisco ASR 1000 IOS XE UNIVERSAL - NO PAYLOAD ENCRYPTION WITHOUT Lawful Intercept

To enable a set of required features, one of the following three technology packages is required:

  1. ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 IP Base License
  2. ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Advanced IP Services License
  3. ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Advanced Services License

Ordering Information

To ensure that you order the correct Cisco ASR 1000, you must first know the answers to the following questions:

● Is this deployment for a service provider or an enterprise network?

● Do you have a form factor requirement? How many rack units (RUs) do you need?

● What total throughput do you need in the router?

● Do you need hardware or software redundancy?

● What types of interfaces do you need, and how many?

1. What services need to be enabled, and how many services do you need to be running concurrently?

Cisco ASR 1000 Series High-Level Overview and Part Numbers

This section gives a brief overview of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router components.

● Chassis

  1. ◦ The chassis houses all of the router components.

● Processor modules

  • ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors: Route processors provide advanced routing features and also monitor and manage other resources on the router. They comprise the memory, hard disk, and USB flash memory token.
  • ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processor (ESP): Based on the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor, the ESP performs forwarding, network security, deep packet inspection, firewalling, data center interconnect, and many other advanced features.

● Interfaces and modules

  1. ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Series Shared Port Adapters (SPAs): These media modules connect to a variety of service provider and enterprise media types. All SPAs connect to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers through the SPA interface processor (SIP) modules.
  2. ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Series SPA Interface Processors (SIPs): The SIPs house and interconnect up to 4 SPAs each, depending on the router model.
  3. ◦ Cisco ASR 1000 Series Ethernet Line Cards (ELCs): ELCs come in two different types: two 10G and twenty 1G, and six 10G. Both of these Ethernet line cards have built-in SIP.
