Product Overview

The Cisco® ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors (ESPs) handle all the network data-plane traffic-processing tasks of Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. These ESPs allow the activation of concurrent enhanced network services, such as cryptography, firewall, Network Address Translation (NAT), quality of service (QoS), NetFlow, and many others while maintaining line speeds.

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers are placed at the WAN edge of your enterprise data center or large office, as well as in service provider points of presence (POPs). The routers rely on the power of the ESPs to aggregate multiple traffic flows and network services, including encryption and traffic management, and forward them across WAN connections at line speeds. With router options that run from 2.5 to 200 Gbps, the ASR Family contains many models and licensing options to meet the speed and budget requirements of different types of organizations and various-sized locations.

The Cisco ASR 1000 ESP components of these routers accelerate service delivery using parallel processing. The ESPs are based on Cisco QuantumFlow Processor (QFP) for next-generation forwarding and queuing in silicon. They operate at 2.5-, 5-, 10-, 10-N-, 20-, 40-, 100-, and 200-Gbps data-plane forwarding throughput rates. Together, the Cisco ASR 1001-X and ASR 1002-X Routers and 100- and 200-Gbps ESPs introduce the second generation of the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor (QFP) hardware and software architecture. With QFP-based ESPs at their core, ASR 1000 Routers accomplish the following:

Handle all baseline packet routing operations, including MAC address classification, Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding, QoS classification, and NetFlow packet accounting

Perform advanced services, such as IPsec encryption, NAT, firewall, AppNav, Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Performance Routing (PfR), and Locator ID Separation Protocol (LISP); they offer diverse feature Layer 2 connectivity options like Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS), Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS), Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV), and Virtual Extensible LAN Services (VXLAN)

Features and Benefits

The main engine of the ESP is the Cisco QFP, the industry’s first programmable and application-aware network processor. The Cisco QFP forms the overall hardware and software architecture of the ESP. It consolidates up to 256 customized packet-processor cores (900 MHz to 1.5 GHz) into a single processor. The parallel processing capability eliminates the need for additional service blades inside the router, because all processing is performed on the QFP. As a result, the ESPs enable the ASR 1000s to support the following functions and features with high performance:

Forwarding, traffic management, and services

Large-scale parallel processing with centralized shared memory to achieve low-latency packet processing

High-performance deep-packet inspection (DPI) with full visibility into the entire Layer 2 frame, including payload

Rapid feature development with ANSI-C software development framework

Up to 200 Gbps system throughput and up to 130 mpps to address WAN aggregation needs

Hardware-assisted crypto performance to yield up to 78 Gbps of throughput to enable secure WAN access and compliance

Line-speed zone-based firewall that provides up to 200 Gbps of throughput and 6 mpps firewall sessions

DPI, Cisco IOS® Software Zone-Based Firewall distributed denial of service (DDoS) detection and prevention, and control-plane protection

Session Border Control (SBC) for terminating and interconnecting media terminations with full accounting and flow control

Multicast Visual Quality Experience (VQE) and video call admission control (CAC) for enhanced user experiences

Hardware-accelerated traffic classification and traffic shaping with support for up to 464,000 queues

Flexible traffic prioritization and efficient WAN bandwidth use with minimum, maximum, and excess bandwidth allocation with priority propagation

Use Cases

The ESPs address the following applications and use cases:

Service provider broadband: The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router serves as a broadband aggregation router that terminates up to 64,000 subscriber sessions. It supports features such as SBC for VoIP and video (including Cisco TelePresence® communications systems) services and hardware-assisted per-user firewall for security.

Service provider-managed customer premise equipment (CPE): The Cisco ASR 1000 Router serves as a WAN aggregation router with high-density Gigabit Ethernet or WAN link aggregation and 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink capabilities. Key benefits are Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN functions and line-rate IP Multicast support for triple-play (data, voice, and video) deployments.

Multimedia provider edge (PE): The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router interfaces with enterprise and service provider-provisioned voice and multimedia services directly at the edge. You do not need an overlay network, network appliances, or service blades, lowering operating expenses (OpEx) and offering flexible deployment models. This router supports protected signaling for both voice and video services and facilitates 32,000 voice calls concurrent with up to 200 Gbps of data traffic with accounting, firewall, and call-quality features enabled.

Enterprise WAN aggregation: At the WAN aggregation headend, the Cisco ASR 1000 Router facilitates a branch-office architecture that offers excellent investment protection with services and scale. Solution benefits consist of a multigigabit encryption rate (up to 78-Gbps IPsec crypto throughput) and optimization of the WAN to route around brownouts in the service provider network to guarantee mission-critical applications.

Enterprise Internet gateway: As an Internet gateway, the ASR 1000 delivers multigigabit Cisco IOS Firewall capability without the need for service blades. All firewall processing occurs in silicon 2.5-, 5-, 10-, 20-, 40-, 100-, or 200-Gbps speeds. In addition, the router provides high-speed logging through Sampled NetFlow Version 9 and ongoing forwarding with baseline and firewall features enabled.

Enterprise Intelligent WAN (IWAN): The scalable Cisco ASR 1000 Router smoothly enables the intelligent WAN architecture that allows enterprises to reduce expensive WAN costs by adopting business-class Internet as a transport while maintaining privacy, confidentiality with crypto, and regulatory compliance with a zone-based firewall.

Enterprise Data Center Interconnect (DCI): The scalable Cisco ASR 1000 Router securely enables the interconnection of data centers to the cloud to consume services and migrate work loads to provide disaster recovery and normal data center management operations.
