Cisco ISR-AX router bundles directly integrates Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS), Security (SEC), and Data (DATA) licenses into a platform that is simple to order, configure, and deploy for secure, optimized cloud connectivity and branch-office routing. By providing a system that is simple to order and deploy, the Cisco ISR-AX platforms add to the rich breadth of services available on the ISRs. Cisco® Intelligent WAN (IWAN) is enabled by the Cisco Application Experience (AX) platform and delivers an uncompromised user experience over any connection, allowing businesses to right-size their networks with operational simplicity and lower costs, freeing up resources for additional IT initiatives/spend.

Similar to the ISR portfolio, the Application Experience (AX) portfolio consists of five product families: the Cisco 4400-AX, 3900-AX, 2900-AX, and 1900-AX Series Application Experience Routers and an AX Feature Set software licensing option for 800 Series. The portfolio provides increasing performance and module slot density and each ISR AX platform comes equipped and ready to deploy, and all ISR-AX platforms include licenses for; Data, Security and WAAS. The ISR AX Feature set software licensing option that is available for the Cisco ISR 800 Series routers combines: WAAS Express and Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC) for a simple to order, configure, and deploy solution for optimized branch office routing. The 1900-AX series, 2900-AX series and the 3925-AX, 3945-AX routers come equipped with maximum DRAM for WAAS express enabled out of the box.
The ASR 1000 AX bundles offer optimal application experience from anywhere. Cisco is enabling customers to deploy application centric networking, designed to help IT deliver applications from anywhere the business requires, with an optimal user experience that results in greater employee productivity and customer satisfaction.

Your business applications can run faster. We work with leading app vendors to tune their applications to run more efficiently on a Cisco network, automatically... reducing bandwidth by up to 70% and supporting more sessions and a better user experience. The business investment on mission critical applications will be more productive with Cisco, giving a better ROI on their investment.

IT gains pervasive visibility across their network to over 1000 apps, without expensive or difficult to deploy probes that are often deployed in selective areas of the network. This means IT can quickly answer why an application is running slow, validate SLAs, and verify the ROI on network services.

All of this is available at lower TCO, with lower OPEX for maintenance and troubleshooting.

Cisco 4451-X-AX Series Integrated Services Routers

The Cisco 4451-X-AX provides optimal performance for applications delivered from a central data center to branch-office users. The solution allows you to consolidate costly server, storage, and backup infrastructure into data centers while maintaining LAN-like service levels for remote users. The Cisco 4451-X-AX includes licenses for, Data, Security, and a Right to Use (RTU) license for 2500 ISR-WAAS or Virtual WAAS (vWAAS) connections. Each 4451-X-AX includes 4-GB DRAM and 8 GB of flash memory by default and does not include solid state drives (SSDs) by default.
When ordering, you have two options to enable either ISR WAAS or vWAAS as follows:

• 2500 ISR-WAAS connections: DRAM upgrade to 16 GB, flash memory upgrade to 32 GB, SSD carrier, and two 200-GB SSDs must be included in the configuration to enable 2500 ISR-WAAS connections.

• 2500 ISR-vWAAS connections: A Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS®) E-Series module must be included in the configuration to enable 2500 ISR-vWAAS connections.

Cisco 3900-AX, 2900-AX, and 1900-AX Series Integrated Services Routers

The Cisco 3900-AX includes licenses for, Data, Security, WAAS Express (WAASX), and a RTU for 2500 WAAS or vWAAS connections and a 1300 WAAS or vWAAS RTU license for the Cisco 2911-AX Series platforms and later. You can use this RTU on any combination or multiples of modules for WAAS and/or vWAAS connections on the Cisco 2900-AX or 3900-AX Series Routers, respectively. The Cisco 1900-AX Series includes licenses for Data, Security, and WAASX.
Options when ordering:

• The Cisco Services-Ready Engine (SRE). Enabling WAAS requires a Cisco SRE 710 or SRE 910

• The Cisco UCS E-Series module. Enabling vWAAS requires a UCS-E module

The SRE or Cisco UCS E-Series module is not included by default with Cisco ISR-AX Routers when ordering, but are optional when ordering - not including by default gives you flexibility in choosing modules when ordering and enabling either WAAS or vWAAS. The RTU can be spread across multiple SRE and/or Cisco UCS E-Series modules in a single router.
The ISR AX bundles include the option for purchase of SRE or UCS-E at a promotional price, when the SRE or UCS-E is purchased separately it is not at the promotional price. Customers who will initially deploy WAAS Express but who plan to deploy full WAAS or vWAAS later are encouraged to buy the ISR AX with SRE or UCS-E to take advantage of the promotional pricing.

AX Licensing for the Cisco® 800 Series

The AX licensing for the Cisco ® 800 Series combines Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) Express and Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC) in a way that is simple to order, configure, and deploy for optimized branch office routing.
The AX licensing for the Cisco 800 Series consists of a combination of Right-to-Use software licenses and necessary DRAM memory as shown below that will get applied to the Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Router:

• Advanced IP License

• Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) Express Right-To-Use License

• Application Visibility and Control (AVC) Right-To-Use

• DRAM maximum memory upgrade

The AX Feature Set for the 800 series is a selectable option that can be added when configuring a Cisco 890 Series Integrated Services Router. Spare licenses may also be purchased and added to existing 890 series routers for these features.

Notes:
1. TCP connection requirements vary by application; some applications consume multiple TCP connection resources for WAAS optimization
2. Target WAN bandwidth is not limited in software or by any other system limit, but is rather provided as guidance for deployment sizing purposes
3. Cisco 1921 routers have fixed non-expandable memory. DRE is disabled on these platforms
4. Typical WAN interfaces for maximum benefit with Cisco WAAS Express include T1/E1, 3G, and multi-T1, and smaller interfaces such as 256 or 384Kbps interfaces
5. 2.5GB DRAM included for WAAS-Express on Cisco 1941/2901/2911/2921-AX and for 2951-AX and 3925/3945-AX series routers 4GB DRAM is included for WAAS Express, the 1921-AX has 512MB DRAM only. 3925E/3945E-AX have 2GB DRAM by default and do not support WAAS Express.
6. To run ISRWAAS natively on the 4451-X, memory upgrade to 16GB, flash memory upgrade to 32 GB and 2*200G SSD storage is needed.
7. Please verify the vWAAS target bandwidth rating is not greater than the router's rating with services enabled. Some ISR routers will not support the full vWAAS 1300, 2500 or 6000 capacity.
