The Cisco® ASR 1000 Series Route Processor, the route processor for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers, addresses the route-processing requirements of carrier-grade IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packet infrastructures. It is responsible for the following functions:
• Executing routing protocol stacks
• Performing all protocol communications with other routers
• Building and distributing forwarding information to all line cards
• Uploading the operating-system software system images to all installed line cards upon powering up
• Providing out-of-band system console and auxiliary ports, a universal serial bus (USB), and an Ethernet port for router configuration and maintenance; and monitoring and managing the power and temperature of system components such as line cards, power supplies, and fans
The first-generation Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor RP1 (RP1) and second-generation Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor RP2 (RP2) offer the following new features:
• Integrate full range of industry-leading Cisco IOS® Software features and services
• Provide optional redundant-processor support and dual Cisco IOS Software support for single route-processor solutions for the industry's most compact, fully redundant, high-availability solution, improving network resiliency, management, and costs
• Provide hard disk drive for code storage, boot, configuration, logs, etc.
• Offer field-replaceable and hot-swappable module to help ensure minimal service disruption
• Offer Stratum-3 clock circuitry and input ports
• Provide USB port for 1-GB Compact Flash memory support
• Offer memory scalability up to 4 GB for RP1 and 16 GB for RP2
