March 21 2017 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Networking, #Cisco Routers, #Technology, #Cisco Technology - IT News

When your enterprises or organization are going to choose the Cisco ASR 1000 Series, you should know these Cisco ASR 1000 Series Enterprise and Service Provider Applications.

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.

Tables2 and Table3 describe enterprise and service provider application examples, respectively.

Table2. Cisco ASR 1000 Series Enterprise Applications

Deployment Scenario

Description

System Characteristics

WAN edge: Guarantee high-priority applications by creating a virtual “glass ceiling” for lower-priority applications. Improve user experiences.

● Applies Modular QoS CLI (MQC) policies on VLANs or tunnels

● Limits an arbitrary collection of low‑priority traffic to a certain bandwidth

● Classifies based on differentiated services code point (DSCP), Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR), and Cisco IOS Cisco IOS FPM (FPM) into numerous hierarchies, one for high priority and one for low priority

● Implements flexible hierarchies

● Supports 464,000 queues

● Allows all queues to have a minimum, maximum, and excess bandwidth with priority propagation

Multiservice, scalable, and secure headend:

IP Security (IPsec) VPN aggregation scales to meet the new bandwidth demands of service provider IP VPNs.

● Reduces capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating expenses (OpEx) by migrating and consolidating to fewer Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers

● Protects investment through easy transition to much higher encryption support, offering encryption support of up to 78 Gbps with the 200-Gbps Cisco ASR 1000 Series ESP (ASR1000-ESP200)

● Offers easier management through embedded security services in the Cisco Flow Processor, with no additional service modules or blades required

● Optimized for QoS and IP Multicast applications

(ASR1000-ESP200) engine

Embedded high-speed firewall:

With the Zone-Based Policy Firewall, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series acts as an implicit and complete barrier between any interfaces not members of the same zone. An explicit zone-pair policy must be specified (using Cisco Policy Language; that is, MQC) in each direction between each zone pair. The policy establishes within the router the kind of stateful inspection (Layer 4, Layer 7, or application) and session parameters to apply to each zone pairing.

Example: An explicit policy allowing HTTP and Domain Name System (DNS) to traverse the Internet-demilitarized zone (DMZ) zone boundary would be required.

● The firewall is embedded in the Cisco Flow Processor; no additional service blades or modules are required.

● Multiple gigabits of bandwidth are routed while at the same time the router performs Zone‑Based Policy Firewall and other baseline features such as QoS, IPv4, IPv6, NetFlow, and others.

● The Cisco ASR 1000 Series provides logging of all firewall session states off to network management applications capable of accepting relatively huge amounts of flow data. Third-party applications can handle the session data.

● Provides firewall performance of 2.5 to 200 Gbps, depending on the ESP used

● Offers high-speed logging of 40,000 sessions per second with NetFlow Version 9

Managed CPE: This implementation of branch-office architecture offers powerful investment protection with services and scale.

● Managed customer premises equipment (CPE) helps branch offices route correctly over various types of Ethernet to comply with service-level agreements (SLAs).

● This application encrypts multiple gigabits of bandwidth without any additional service blades or modules.

● Managed CPE optimizes the WAN to route around brownouts in the service provider network to further guarantee mission-critical applications.

● This application offers small form factors (1 rack unit [1RU] for the Cisco ASR 1001-X and ASR 1001-HX and 2RUs for the Cisco ASR 1002-HX and ASR 1002-X Routers), including software modularity and ISSU.

Note: ISSU is not supported on Cisco ASR 1001-X, ASR 1001-HX, ASR 1002-HX, ASR 1002-X, or ASR 1004. Managed CPE offers accessibility even when the Cisco IOS Software is down.

● Offers first-in-industry software redundancy support, without any additional hardware module, on Cisco ASR 1001-X, ASR 1001-HX, ASR 1002-HX, ASR 1002-X, and ASR 1004; hardware redundancy and ISSU are supported on the Cisco ASR 1006 and ASR 1013.

● Offers powerful firewall and NAT performance of 2.5 to 200 Gbps and 1.8- to 78-Gbps encryption support in addition to WAN optimization and voice features

Example: You can deploy the solution at the distributed provider edge or provider edge in global VPN networks for bandwidth demands such as asymmetric DSL (ADSL), T1/E1, STM-1, STM-4, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, etc.

● The application provides integral services in the Cisco Flow Processor.

● It provides encryption, FPM, NBAR, SBC, IP Multicast, etc.

● Offers excellent multicast performance

● Scales to 8,000 Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF) instances, 1 million Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) labels, and 4,000 access control lists (ACLs)

● Supports up to 4 million IPv4 routes

● Supports up to 4 million IPv6 routes

Service provider edge: High-end route reflector:

You can use the solution as a route reflector for bandwidth support of 40 Gbps.

● The application provides high scalability.

● It offers a modular design of the route processor and ESP with hardware and software redundancy.

● Scales up to 29 million IPv4 routes

● Supports 64,000 Layer 3 adjacencies

Next-generation voice and multimedia example: Cisco Unified Border Element Enterprise Edition (ENT Edition):

The SBC application (named Cisco Unified Border Element [ENT Edition]) performs the voice and video gateway functions simultaneously with regular IP data services. No appliance or additional service blade is required. The control protocols and media protocols work transparently within a complex voice architecture. For more information, refer to the CUBE data sheet at http://www.cisco.com/go/cube.

● Secure and authenticated Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunk connections enable service providers to offer real-time voice and video services.

● The WAN edge is simpler to manage because there is only one egress and one ingress point for access to Internet or service provider services.

● The control plane is separated from the data-forwarding plane, so the signaling and control processes are separate from media processing.

● The CUBE SBC application can be used for SIP trunk video and/or audio services provided by service providers or for Internet-accessible SIP line-side services to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

● Facilitates SBC with security, QoS, IPv4, and IPv6 (IP Unicast and IP Multicast simultaneously)

● Supports 16,000 simultaneous voice calls and multimedia data of up to 200 Gbps with accounting, firewall, and call quality enabled

● Integrated with inbox high-availability infrastructure and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Relay

The Latest Cisco 4000 Model Comparison

November 10 2016 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Networking, #Cisco Routers

The new ISR 4221 of Cisco ISR 4000 family was introduced to customers. The present Cisco 4000 family has main six platforms: the 4451, 4431, 4351, 4331, 4321 and the new 4221 ISRs.

The latest ISR 4221 is mightier than the ISR G2, vis-à-vis ISR 1921 and 1941. It is a desktop-like, industrially designed 1RU box priced cost-effectively for mid-markets.

What other features of Cisco ISR 4221 you should know? Read these 3 questions to get the answers.

Q. Is a console port available on the Cisco 4000 Series?

A. The Cisco 4000 Series has the option of the regular RJ-45 console port as well as the USB console port. As with the ISR G2 routers, only one console port can be used at a time, with preference given to the USB console port. The Cisco 4221 router has a combo RJ-45 port for AUX and Console.

Q. Is online insertion and removal (OIR) supported on the Cisco 4000 Series?

A. Yes, OIR is supported on the Cisco 4000 Series for the following scenarios:

● Surprise insertion or removal of any NIM in any of the NIM slots

● Surprise insertion or removal of any SM-X in the SM-X slots

● Surprise insertion or removal of any power supply or system PoE conversion module

● Surprise replacement of the system fan tray; note, however, that this replacement must take place quickly enough that the system does not overheat, and depending on altitude and ambient temperature, the amount of time can vary greatly

Note that SM-X and NIM modules allow replacement only for like-to-like modules. A faulty module can be replaced with a good module of the same type but cannot be replaced with a completely different module of a different type.

The Cisco 4221 does not support OIR.

Q. How many PVDM slots are present on the motherboard?­

A. There is only one PVDM slot on the motherboard across the Cisco 4000 Series. And the TDM cards CANNOT use the motherboard PVDMs.

The 4221 does not have any PVDM slot.

In the following part we will list the main Cisco 4000 model comparison, which help you know the main features of Cisco 4000 platforms.

Something New for KVM (Kernel Virtual Machines) App Hosting on a Cisco Router

August 25 2016 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Cisco Technology - IT News, #Cisco Routers, #Cisco News

KVM (Kernel Virtual Machines) App Hosting on a Cisco Router-Benefits

KVM (Kernel Virtual Machines) App Hosting on a Cisco Router-Benefits

Use Spare Router Cycles to Host Linux VMs

In this summer, Cisco introduced a capability that we quietly rolled out in a software release last November (IOS XE 3.17). You can now host your own custom or third party KVM lightweight applications directly on your ISR 4000 or ASR 1000.

Kernel-based Virtual Machines, the KVM, are the standard virtualization technology in the embedded Linux world. If you’re writing applications to be hosted across a network, odds are you’re already using it. The ability to virtualize across the network is a key aspect of Cisco DNA so this capability dovetails very nicely with the larger solution for enterprise environments.

Get the Most from Your Branch Router

Many lightweight applications and network functions needed in a modern network or branch office are available as virtual machines (VM). If you need to host some of these functions in the network, use your Cisco router to do it instead of deploying a dedicated appliance at your branch site.

You’ll reduce complexity and cost by making use of spare compute horsepower that’s already in your router. Very efficient.

Run the Apps You Need...

Use the Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Router (ISR) and ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router to host not only Cisco apps, but also third-party and homegrown Linux-based apps. These routers’ Cisco IOS XE operating system supports the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), a virtualization infrastructure for the Linux kernel that turns it into a hypervisor.

Both routers use a customized high-performance data plane for forwarding and manipulating packets. The control plane is entirely Linux running on an x86 Intel CPU. We designed the routers with extra CPU capacity for hosting VMs.

You can also turn to the Cisco 4000 Series ISR and ASR 1000 Series to host other network functions that can be deployed as VMs, including:

• Windows domain controller

• Print servers

• Network analytics

• Network functions such as WAN optimization (Cisco WAAS), intrusion detection and prevention (Snort IPS), and visibility and security intelligence (Cisco Stealthwatch Learning Network License)

Hosting those VMs directly on your existing physical router makes a whole lot of sense.

...With the Performance You Expect

VMs are not hosted in the data plane of the router, so there is no performance impact on packet forwarding or feature processing. Critical control plane functions run at a higher priority than hosted VMs.

This is industry-standard Linux virtualization at its finest.

Cisco ASR 9000 Series & vDDoS Protection Solution...More Benefits

Cisco ASR 9000 Series & vDDoS Protection Solution...More Benefits

Cisco ASR 9000 vDDoS Defends Against Various Types of DDoS Attacks

Cisco ASR 9000 vDDoS Defends Against Various Types of DDoS Attacks

Aggregation Services Router (ASR) offers the industry’s highest density Carrier Ethernet system, with superior edge and aggregation performance.

The Cisco ASR 9000 series routers are the cornerstone of modern Edge and Carrier Ethernet networks.

Network traffic surges. Links saturate. Systems overload. Customer complaints flood the call centers. What’s going on? One possibility is a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

Cisco ASR 9000 virtual DDoS (vDDoS) protection defends your network against DDoS attacks by embedding Arbor Networks DDoS detection and mitigation technology into your Cisco network. You can automatically mitigate all types of DDoS attacks against your network or your customers’ networks. The solution protects your network against different types of DDoS attacks—such as volumetric, state exhaustion, and application layer attacks—helping to ensure its continued availability.

And you can also use the capability to provide DDoS protection services to your customers to increase your revenue and retain customers.

The ASR 9000 powers a virtual Peakflow Threat Management System on its Virtualized Services Module (VSM), so you can deliver DDoS protection services to market fast.

Benefits

• Add distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection to Cisco ASR 9000 deployments with no extra rack space, power, or cooling requirements.

• Combine existing Arbor Threat Management System appliances with comprehensive vDDoS protection.

• Distribute DDoS protection to the network edge to avoid backhauling traffic across backbones to regional scrubbing centers.

• Deliver DDoS protection services faster on the ASR’s Virtualized Service Module (VSM).

• Mitigate attacks using Peakflow workflows to protect your availability and manage your Peakflow and vDDoS protection deployments.

Detection at the Edge

The ASR 9000 vDDoS protection solution unleashes the power of the Cisco ASR 9000 to stop DDoS attacks at the network edge. All before attacks can pass into your network and your customers’, consume critical bandwidth, and cause collateral damage. Normal traffic passes uninterrupted.

This approach eliminates the need to route attack traffic across your backbone to centralized scrubbing centers for cleansing. And it keeps your network edge from getting congested.

Unlike other DDoS solutions, Cisco ASR 9000 vDDoS protection is a virtualized, network-embedded DDoS solution. Detection and centralized management take place through the Arbor Networks Peakflow GUI and its workflows.

Increase the ROI of your existing Cisco ASR 9000 router deployment with virtual DDoS protection – of your own network and that of your customers in the form of new services – without needing any additional rack space, power, or cooling.
