Cisco ONE Software Device Tiering Guide-Part 1

May 24 2018 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Networking, #IT, #Cisco Technology - IT News, #Cisco & Cisco Network, #Cisco Routers, #Data Center, #Cisco Wireless - Cisco Wireless AP

We know that Cisco ONE Software suites have been introduced to provide a cost-effective and flexible way for customers to acquire software for their data center, WAN, switching, and wireless needs. Do you know how to choose the Cisco ONE Software License for your Cisco hardware? In the following part it shows you the Cisco ONE Software Device Tiering Guide that tells you more…

As described in the FAQ for Cisco ONE Software License Portability, the hardware product series and/or tier on which you have deployed your licenses determines your portability options. Licenses are portable within a product tier (for example, Cisco 2900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR) to 2900 Series ISR).

Devices with greater capabilities are categorized in a higher tier because they gain more benefit from the capabilities in Cisco ONE Software. You can port your licenses to a higher tier, but an upgrade fee may be involved.

Table1 describes the different equipment refresh scenarios. Subsequent tables describe the tiers for each family of hardware.

Table1. License portability use cases

Use Case

Policy

Cost

Refresh a device with a device in the same tier.

Example: Cisco 2901 ISR to 2911 ISR

If a Cisco Software Support Services (SWSS) contract is in place, the software can be used on the new device.

None.

Refresh a device with a device in a higher tier.

Example: Cisco 2901 ISR to 3925 ISR

You must pay a software upgrade fee to use the software from the original device on the replacement device.

 

You must purchase an upgraded Cisco SWSS contract for the new software. You receive a credit for the old support contract.

The cost is the license cost on the new device minus the license cost on the old device, at current list prices, subject to customer-negotiated discounts.

 

You also need to consider the cost of the upgraded Cisco SWSS contract.

Refresh a device with a device in a lower tier.

Example: Cisco 3925 ISR to 2901 ISR

You are entitled to use the software deployed on your original device on a lower tier replacement device. You retain license portability rights associated with the original device family, so you can subsequently refresh the device back to the original device family.

 

You can opt to downgrade the license permanently to the lower tier device family, which would allow you to renew your Cisco SWSS contract at a lower price. In that case, the license entitlement is set permanently to the lower-tier family.

None. The support contract remains with the original device family.

 

 

 

If you permanently downgrade, you may renew your Cisco SWSS contract at a lower price.

Refresh a device with a next‑generation device.

Example: Cisco 3925 ISR to 4000 Series ISR

In this case, the transfer depends on whether the next-generation Cisco 4000 Series ISR is considered the same tier as the existing device, or a higher or lower tier. Depending on the tier, the policies outlined above apply.

 

In all cases, you must migrate your software licenses to a next-generation device before your older device reaches end of support. At this stage, your Cisco SWSS contact will have expired and you will not meet the portability criteria.

The tier of the next-generation device determines the cost. Depending on the tier, the policies outlined above apply.

Cisco 4400 and 4300 Series ISRs, the Differences

October 19 2017 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Networking, #Cisco Routers, #Cisco & Cisco Network, #IT

Cisco ISR 4000 series is the trend among the hardware routers. The popular 4000 Series

ISR models are users’ options. Why? You can read more about the The “Always On” Cisco ISR 4000 Will Replace the Popular Cisco 1900, 2900, and 3900 Series-Benefits of Migrating to Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers

The 4000 Series comes to five platforms: the 4451, 4431, 4351, 4331, 4321 and 4221 ISRs.

Learn more: ISR 4221, the New Cisco DNA-Ready Platform

Cisco 4000 Series: Technical Highlights and Comparison

The Cisco 4000 Series uses Cisco IOS XE Software, the same Linux-based OS found on the bigger ASR 1000 Series platforms. Cisco IOS XE retains the design and user interface of the Cisco IOS OS used by previous generation Cisco routers, yet allows the use of multi-core CPUs. This setup facilitates separation of the data and control planes and uses dedicated CPUs for services.

Because the services plane is separate from the data and control planes, the router can handle more and heavier services on a single platform, allowing an office to consolidate devices. Solutions such as Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE), Cisco Unified Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST), or various routing services can be deployed more easily and efficiently on a single ISR. In addition, for many of the services, such as CUBE, the scalability is significantly greater without added costs per port. Performance also remains solid across most typical branch-office deployments, providing application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC)-like performance in a highly reliable platform.

X86-based embedded service containers offer dedicated virtualized computing resources that include CPU, disk storage, and memory for each service. An industry-standard hypervisor presents the underlying infrastructure to the application or service. This design offers better scaling and flexibility than a tightly coupled service. Deployment with zero footprint, security through fault isolation, and the flexibility to upgrade network services independently of the router software are other benefits.

And the Cisco 4400 and 4300 Series ISRs have a very similar user interface design.

The biggest difference to most users is that the 4400 Series supports dual power supplies, whereas the 4300 Series does not; this difference makes the Cisco 4451 and 4431 the preferred choices for organizations that cannot tolerate any downtime.

The 4400 and 4300 Series are both designed with the same base architecture as their close relative, the ASR 1000 Series, using distributed control and data plane resources.

The 4400 Series routers have a physical separation between control and data planes, using dedicated CPU sockets for each. The 4300 Series uses a single socket with multiple CPU cores, providing the distributed control plane, data plane, and service plane resources. This is, however, a difference most users will never be aware of.

Figure1 shows the Cisco 4400 Series architecture.

The abbreviations in the figure are as follows:

  1. FPGE: Front-panel Gigabit Ethernet. The Ethernet interfaces on the front panel.
  2. ISC: Internal services card. An internal module used for expanding the capabilities of the system. Commonly used for digital signal processor (DSP) modules.
  3. SM-X: Enhanced service module. A larger module type used mainly for Cisco UCS E-Series Server blades and high-density Ethernet switch modules. Some of the SM-X modules are compatible with the ISR G2 product line.
  4. NIM: Network interface module. Half the size of an SM-X, and generally used for WAN, voice, and lowdensity Ethernet interfaces. NIMs are not compatible with previous-generation ISRs.

Figure1. Cisco 4400 Series Architecture

The Cisco 4400 Series uses two multicore CPU complexes for the data plane (packet processing) and control and services planes. In Cisco IOS XE Software, classic Cisco IOS Software runs as a single daemon within a Linux OS, helping ensure control-plane protocol compatibility with all other Cisco routers. This setup is indicated as “Cisco IOS Software” in the figure. Additional system functions now run as additional, separate processes in the host OS environment. “ISR-WAAS” in the figure is an example of a typical virtualized service in a Cisco IOS XE Software service container. As with the previous ISR G2 routers, a multigigabit fabric supports direct intercommunication on Layer 2 between the Internal Services Card (ISC), Cisco SM-X EtherSwitch modules, and network interface modules (NIMs) without having to be routed through the host router data plane.

Figure2 shows the Cisco 4300 Series architecture, which is similar to the 4400 Series but does not include physical separation of the control and data planes. All functions are, however, exactly the same, with identical enduser experiences and feature support.

Figure2. Cisco 4300 Series Architecture

Individual Models in the Cisco 4000 Series

Figure3. Cisco 4451-X ISR

The Cisco 4451-X is suggested for migration from the existing Cisco 3925E and 3945E routers. It offers 1-Gbps performance, upgradable to 2 Gbps, in a 2-rack-unit (2RU) form factor with three NIM slots and two enhanced service module (SM-X) slots.

● 6-core data plane

● Up to 16-GB control and services memory

Figure5. Cisco 4351 ISR

The Cisco 4351 is suggested for migration from existing Cisco 2951 routers. It offers 200-Mbps performance, upgradable to 400 Mbps, in a 2RU form factor with three NIM slots and two SM slots.

● 8-core CPU with four data-plane cores and four cores for control-plane and containerized services

● Single or double-wide Cisco UCS E-Series support, and up to 16-GB control and services memory

Figure6. Cisco 4331 ISR

The Cisco 4331 is suggested for migration from the existing Cisco 2911 and 2921 routers. It offers 100-Mbps performance, upgradable to 300 Mbps, in a 1RU form factor with two NIM slots and one SM slot.

● 8-core CPU with four data-plane cores and four cores for control-plane and containerized services

● Single-wide Cisco UCS E-Series support, and up to 16-GB control and services memory

Figure7. Cisco 4321

The Cisco 4321 is suggested for migration from the existing Cisco 2901 and 1941 routers. It offers 50-Mbps performance, upgradable to 100 Mbps, in a 1RU desktop form factor with two NIM slots and no SM slots.

  • 4-core CPU with two data-plane cores, one control-plane core, and one core dedicated for services
  • Up to 8-GB control and services memory

The Cisco 4000 Series is designed to help branch and remote offices do more with less. These routers provide higher bandwidth for heavy service combinations and greatly enhanced WAN management. They also introduce embedded X86-based virtual machines together with options for data center–class servers, and an unprecedented flexibility in upgrading.

All in all, the 4000 Series provides the branch office with less need for rack space; lower cost for maintenance, power, and cooling; faster rollout of new services; and less time spent by IT staff managing routers.

Q. Do the C880G Series ISRs support the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA)?

A. C880G Series routers support NMEA. A virtual serial port is implemented to export NMEA format GPS data to external NEMA 2.0-compliant user applications.

Q. How do I configure NMEA on C880G Series ISRs?

A. To enable NMEA GPS data streaming, C880G Series routers have introduced two new command-line interfaces (CLIs): cdma|gsm gps modem standalone and cdma|gsm gps nmea. A virtual serial port has been implemented in the Cisco IOS Software to export NMEA-formatted GPS data. If end users connect the router to a Microsoft Windows-based PC through an Ethernet connection COM port emulation software is required on the PC side to emulate the COM port over the Ethernet link.

Q. What NMEA sentences do the C880G Series ISRs support?

A. C880G cellular modems support the following NMEA sentences: GGA, GSA, GSV, RMC, and VTG.

Q. How many SIM card slots do the C880G Series ISRs support?

A. C880G Series routers support two SIM card slots, which allow cellular modem failover to the secondary SIM card to continue service when the modem loses services to the primary SIM card.

Please refer to the Cisco 819 Integrated Service Router Q&A and “ Configuring Cisco EHWIC and 880G for 3.7G (HSPA+)/3.5G (HSPA)” for more information about how to use and configure dual-SIM.

Q. Is dual-SIM supported on CDMA 3GPP2 based C880G Series ISRs?

A. C880G CDMA 3GPP2 Series routers do not support the SIM card; therefore, the dual-SIM feature is not supported on these routers.

Q. How do I send, display, delete, and archive SMS on C880G Series ISRs?

A. C880G Series routers have an SMS function that enables the routers to send and receive SMS messages. This feature also enables the routers to save and store the SMS messages in an FTP server. SMS is enabled by default. You can send, display, delete, and archive SMS through the router CLI.

Q. Is encapsulation ppp supported by C880G Plus 7 Series ISRs?

A. No. C880G Plus 7 Series routers support encapsulation slip by default.

Q. What is Direct IP on C880G Plus 7 Series ISRs?

A. C880G Series routers are integrated with a Sierra Wireless MC8705 cellular modem that is running under Direct IP mode to maintain HSPA+ data throughput. Direct IP is a Sierra Wireless proprietary framing protocol used to transfer data between the host platform and the modem. Direct IP framed data have a dedicated USB connection, meaning the host can still send AT commands after the direct IP data session is established. Cisco IOS Software sets encapsulation to SLIP based on the data link protocol between the host and the modem.

Q. What WLAN antenna options are available for C880W Series ISRs?

A. All C880W Series routers embed three dual-band 2.4- or 5-GHz Planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA)-type omnidirectional antennae. External swivel-mount dipole antennae are no longer used. Antennae are attached to the cover of the chassis and covered by the front bezel, and U.FL-type RF connectors attach to the radio.

Q. Do the Cisco 880 WLAN Series routers have removable WLAN antennae?

A. Only Cisco 881 WLAN Series routers have removable swivel-mount dipole antennae. Other products in these routers have captive default dipole antennae. Removal of them and support for other types of external WLAN antenna is not supported by Cisco.
