The Cisco® ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers are designed to optimize service provider edge and enterprise aggregation solutions. The innovative hardware and software design of these routers integrates powerful resiliency and intelligent services into a single router platform (Figure 1).

Figure 1. Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers

Hardware

The system is composed of a chassis, a route processor (RP), embedded services processors (ESPs), and SPA interface processors (SIPs). For interfaces it supports common Cisco shared port adapters (SPAs) that are shipping with other Cisco high-end routing platforms. Because of the modular design of the hardware, you can order many combinations to fit various price and performance requirements.
Four form-factor chassis are available: 2, 4, 6, and 13 rack units (RUs). All chassis come equipped with dual power supplies. Most hardware components are interchangeable among different chassis; the exceptions are the 2RU and 2RU-Fixed models, which have a fixed SIP and route processor in the chassis because of their compact form factor, and the SIP and route processor are not upgradable. Additionally, the 2RU-Fixed model has an integrated ESP with throughput of 2.5 Gbps. The modular route processors supported on the 4- and 6RU chassis ship with default 2-GB DRAM (ASR1000-RP1) or 8-GB DRAM (ASR1000-RP2), which you can upgrade to 4-GB DRAM (ASR1000-RP1) or 16-GB DRAM (ASR1000-RP2). The 2RU and 2RU-Fixed chasses do not support field-upgradable route-processor memory, but they do ship by default with 4-GB DRAM route-processor memory. The 2RU and 2RU-Fixed models also offer 4 built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports in the route processor by default. The 6- and 13RU chassis support a redundant physical configuration of dual route processors and dual ESPs. The SIPs can house 4 half-height or 2 double-height SPAs with no limitation of interface types. Table 1 outlines hardware component compatibility.

Software

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers introduce the Cisco IOS ® XE Software as their software architecture. Based on Cisco IOS Software, the Cisco IOS XE Operating System is designed to provide modular packaging, feature velocity, and powerful resiliency. Because of the extreme flexibility and robust performance of ESPs based on Cisco QuantumFlow Processor technology, network security, deep packet inspection, firewall, and many other advanced features are implemented in the Cisco IOS XE Operating System without the need of a service blade. One of the most innovative features is support for dual Cisco IOS Software consolidated packages in a single route processor for software redundancy in the 2- and 4RU chassis systems. Information about compatibility of supported dual software consolidated packages is available in the release notes. Note that with the redundant hardware route processor and ESP configuration in the 6- and 13RU models, Cisco IOS Software redundancy in a single route processor in a redundant 6RU system is not supported.
A Cisco IOS XE consolidated package is composed of different software subpackages that you can download from Cisco.com as one consolidated package. You can upgrade the whole package or each of the subpackages individually. Information about the compatibility of various subpackages is outlined in each release note.
Following are the seven subpackages:

• Route processor

– RPBase: Route-processor operating system

– RPControl: Control-plane processes that interface between Cisco IOS Software and the rest of the platform

– RPIOS

– RPAccess: Software required for router access; two versions are available: One that contains open Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and one without (RPAccess-K9 and RPAccess, respectively)

• SIPBase: SIP operating system + Control processes

• SIPSPA: SPA drivers and field-programmable device (FPD) (SPA FPGA image)

• ESP

– ESPBase: ESP operating system + Control processes + Cisco Packet Processor client, driver, and ucode

Table 3 lists the software subpackages that each consolidated package consists of, and Table 4 gives ordering information for the software consolidated package spares. Table 5 lists the Cisco WebEx node SPA software. Table 6 lists the Cisco IOS XE Software consolidated package spares.
