The 5-, 10-, 10-N-, and 20-Gbps Cisco® ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors (ESPs) (part numbers ASR1000-ESP5, ASR1000-ESP10, ASR1000-ESP10-N, and ASR1000-ESP20, respectively) provide four centralized forwarding-engine options for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (Figure 1). The 5-Gbps ESP (ESP5) supports 5 Gbps of bandwidth. The 10-Gbps ESP (ESP10 and ESP10-N) support 10 Gbps of bandwidth and can be deployed in customer networks that require 1+1 redundancy. The 20-Gbps ESP (ESP20) supports 20 Gbps of bandwidth and can be deployed in customer networks that require 1+1 redundancy (refer to fault-tolerant configuration in Table 3).

Performance highlights of the ESP20 include hardware-assisted quality of service (QoS), encryption capability of 8 Gbps, and special jitter- and latency-minimizing multicast packet replication. Encryption capability of the ESP10 is rated for 4 Gbps whereas ESP5 is rated for 1.8 Gbps. The ASR1000-ESP10-N has the same performance characteristics as the ASR1000-ESP10 but does not support encryption services.
All three ESPs are based on the innovative Cisco Packet Processor for next-generation forwarding and queuing in silicon.

New Features

The 5-, 10-, 10-N-, and 20-Gbps ESPs offer the following new features:

• Integrate full range of industry-leading Cisco IOS® Software features and services

• Guarantee carrier-class High Availability through hardware and software redundancies

• Offer flexible number of queues per interface and hierarchical QoS support

• Optimized for IPv6 packet routing and multicast traffic broadcasting at line rate

• Process packet header and data segments to provide Deep Packet Inspection

• Ideal for next-generation and triple-play (data, voice, and video) broadband networks, including upcoming capabilities such as ad insertion

• Provide field-replaceable and hot-swappable module that helps ensure minimal service disruption

• Offer greatly improved price/performance ratio

• Provide unrivaled feature velocity through configurable multicore Cisco Packet Processor

Upgrade Paths

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers are included in the standard Cisco Technology Migration Program (CTMP). Refer to www.cisco.com/go/TMP and contact your Cisco account representative for program details.

Software Support

The 5- and 10-Gbps ESPs are supported in Release 2.1 of the Cisco IOS XE Software or higher. The 20-Gbps ESP is supported in Release 2.2 of the Cisco IOS XE Software or higher.

Availability

The 5- and 10-Gbps ESPs are generally available. The target first customer shipment for the 20-Gbps ESP is September 2008.
