Product Overview

Cisco® ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers aggregate multiple WAN connections and network services including encryption and traffic management, and forward them across WAN connections at line speeds from 2.5 to 200 Gbps. The routers contain both hardware and software redundancy in an industry-leading high-availability design.

The latest additions to the Cisco ASR Family are the Cisco ASR 1006-X and ASR 1009-X Chassis. The new chassis support 100-Gbps-per-slot bandwidth and are ready for future higher system capacity.

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 QuantumFlow 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 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

Features and Benefits

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 an “-X” model, so you can increase throughput by simply purchasing upgrade licenses as you grow to increase your network speed dynamically.

Table 1 summarizes the features and benefits of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

Table 1.       Features and Benefits of Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers

Feature

Benefit

High Availability

Redundant hardware components and power supplies

  These components provide system and business continuity.
  The ASR 1006, ASR 1006-X, ASR 1009-X, and ASR 1013 have redundant route processors and ESPs.
  The ASR 1001, ASR 1001-X, ASR 1002, ASR 1002-X, and ASR1004 have redundant instances of Cisco IOS XE Software.

Stateful intrachassis redundancy

  Redundant hardware combined with modular software contains faults to prevent systemwide failure.
  Redundancy across routers is enabled by pairing routers that act as backup for each other. The routers offer 99.999-percent (“five-nines”) availability for consistent, high-performance user application experiences.

In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) support

  You don’t need to schedule downtime windows; changes are made while the system keeps on working, with nonstop routing availability.

Cisco IOS XE Software Sub-package Mode

  You can upgrade individual software components in less time.

Scalable Capacity and Throughput

Cisco QuantumFlow Processor-based platform

  Advanced services can operate at high speeds without the need for additional hardware or blades.

Hardware acceleration

  Features such as quality of service (QoS), cryptography, and access control lists (ACLs) are processed in hardware.

Control- and forwarding-plane separation

  You can scale control and data planes independently of each other.

Investment Protection

Software modularity

  You can mix and match the services that best meet your business needs; you won’t “waste” investments on capabilities you don’t need.

Pay-as-you-grow licensing with “-X” models

  When you need greater throughput, you simply activate it with a change in software license, rather than having to expend capital for additional hardware.

Cisco Shared Port Adapters (SPAs)

  You can reuse your investment in network I/O across platforms.

Cisco Network Interface Modules (NIMs)

  You can reuse your investment in network I/O across platforms.

Product Portfolio

The Cisco ASR 1000 Family contains ten members with varying types of I/O connectivity and slots and different maximum throughput rates (Figure 1). All models use the innovative and powerful Cisco QuantumFlow Processor and support the same feature set based on the Cisco IOS XE Operating System. All platforms use the same hardware shared port adapters (SPAs). All this commonality simplifies management and operations.

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 the fixed-platform Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1001-X, and ASR 1002-X Routers, one of the following five packages is required:

   Cisco ASR 1001 IOS XE UNIVERSAL - NO ENCRYPTION

   Cisco ASR 1001 IOS XE UNIVERSAL - NO PAYLOAD ENCRYPTION

   Cisco ASR 1001 IOS XE UNIVERSAL

   Cisco ASR 1001 IOS XE UNIVERSAL W/O Lawful Intercept

   Cisco ASR 1001 IOS XE UNIVERSAL - NO PAYLOAD ENCRYPTION W/O Lawful Intercept

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

     Cisco ASR 1000 IP Base License

     Cisco ASR 1000 Advanced IP Services License

     Cisco ASR 1000 Advanced Services License

For modular platforms Cisco ASR 1004, ASR 1006, and ASR 1013, you can choose from six supported consolidated packages in each Cisco IOS XE Software release:

   IP Base without Crypto

   IP Base

   Advanced IP Services

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 QuantumFlow Processor, with no additional service modules or blades required
  Optimized for QoS and IP Multicast applications

  Supports 8,000 IPsec tunnels
  Offers up to 78-Gbps encryption performance and up to 200-Gbps noncryptographic throughput support with the Cisco ASR 1000 Series 200-Gbps Embedded Services Processor
(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 QuantumFlow 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 and 2RUs for the Cisco ASR 1002 Fixed, ASR 1002, and ASR 1002-X Routers), including software modularity and ISSU.
  Note: ISSU is not supported on Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1002-F, ASR 1002, 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, ASR 1001-X, ASR 1002, 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

Table 3.       Cisco ASR 1000 Series Service Provider Applications

  The application provides integral services in the Cisco QuantumFlow 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
  Offers default memory 4-GB DRAM (on Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X) and 8-GB DRAM (on Cisco ASR 1000‑RP2 and ASR 1001-X)
  Offers optional upgrade to 16-GB DRAM (on Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1001-X, ASR 1002-X, and ASR 1000‑RP2)

Note: The Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1002, and ASR 1002-X Routers ship by default with 4-GB DRAM. The Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X are upgradable to 8- or 16-GB DRAM.

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
