Note: The 1RU, 2RU, and 2RU-F chassis (ASR1001, ASR1002, ASR1002-X, and ASR1002-F) come by default with 4-GB DRAM. In the ASR1002 and ASR1002-F, 4 GB is required for the software-redundancy implementation, which is also of high interest for the managed customer-premises-equipment (CPE) application. In the ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X, 8 GB is required for the software redundancy implementation.

Q. What key new items are introduced with the Cisco ASR 1001 chassis compared to the other ASR 1000 Series Routers?
A. The Cisco ASR 1001 Series introduces the concept of the integrated daughter card (IDC), which is a non-field upgradable component on the ASR 1001 chassis to provide enhanced (I/O) capabilities. The first Cisco ASR 1001 release came in three different versions: the ASR 1001 base chassis (part number ASR1001); the ASR1001 chassis with an IDC providing two OC-3 Packet-over-SONET/SDH (POS) ports (ASR1001-2XOC3POS); and the ASR1001 with an IDC providing four T3 ports (ASR1001-4XT3). The second phase of the ASR 1001 launched a further three chassis: the ASR1001 chassis with built-in 160-GB hard drive (ASR1001-HDD); the ASR1001 chassis with an IDC providing four 1 Gigabit Ethernet Ports (ASR1001-4X1GE); and the ASR1001 chassis with an IDC providing eight Channelized T1/E1 ports (ASR1001-8XCHT1E1) In addition, the Cisco ASR 1001 is the first chassis of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series that implements the software activation that is the same software activation concept as seen on other Cisco offerings; for example, on the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) router series. At first customer shipment (FCS), two different types of licenses will be enforced through software activation. First, the feature sets will be offered through the IP Base (K9 and non-K9), Advanced IP Services (K9 and non-K9), and Advanced Enterprise Services (K9 and non-K9). Second, the upgrade from the default performance of 2.5 to 5 Gbps can be accomplished through a software-activated performance upgrade license (part number to be used at the time of ordering any of the three ASR 1001 chassis for the performance upgrade to 5 Gbps is FLS-ASR1001-5G). Other functions such as firewall and encryption are planned to be software-activated on the ASR 1001 in the future.
Q. What are the key new items introduced with the Cisco ASR 1002-X chassis compared to the other ASR 1000 Series Routers?
A. The Cisco ASR 1002-X Series has 6 built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports. Further, the Cisco ASR 100-X implements the software activation that is the same software activation concept as seen on ASR 1001 and other Cisco offerings; for example, on the Cisco ISR G2 routers. The system performances can be set at 5 (default), 10, 20, and 36 Gbps through software activation.
Q. What are the major differences between the Cisco ASR 1013 and ASR 1006?
A. The Cisco ASR 1013 has expanded I/O capacity of up to 6 I/O slots (24 half-height SPAs), and a throughputsupport capabililty of 360 Gbps total. This model is designed to support either four 40-Gbps slots or two 100-Gbps slots in the future. The Cisco ASR 1013 has four power supplies (AC or DC) organized in two redundant pairs. Field-replaceable unit (FRU) placement is also different on the Cisco ASR 1013. From the bottom up, there are three SIP slots, a route-processor slot, an embedded-services-processor (ESP) slot, another ESP slot, a route-processor slot, and then another three SIP slots.
Q. What are the major components of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series?
A. The major components of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series include:

Cisco ASR 1000 Series chassis

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor (RP1 and RP2 modules - or a route processor - are integrated in ASR 1001, ASR 1002-F, and ASR 1002 chassis)

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processor (ESP5, ESP10, ESP10-N, ESP20, ESP40, ESP100, and ESP200)

- Note: The ESP is integrated in the ASR 1001, ASR 1002-F, and ASR 1002-X chassis.

The integrated ESP on the ASR 1001 offers 2.5 Gbps by default and is upgradable through a license to 5 Gbps. The integrated ESP on the ASR 1002-F chassis offers 2.5 Gbps throughput and is not further upgradable.

The integrated ESP on the ASR 1002-X offers 5 Gbps by default, and is upgradable through a software license to 10, 20, or 36 Gbps.

Cisco IOS XE Software

Q. What is Cisco IOS XE Software?
A. Cisco IOS XE Software is part of the Cisco IOS Software Family. Cisco IOS XE Software is a modular software built on a Linux kernel and based on Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2SR for Cisco IOS XE 2.1 through 2.6 and Cisco IOS Software Release 15S starting with Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.1S.
Q. What is the Cisco IOS XE architecture?
A. The Cisco IOS XE operating system design is based on a distributed control plane. A separate control processor is included on each major component of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series. For example, the route processor, ESP, and SIP have their own processors, which are responsible for managing the local resources, data structures, and so on. In addition, the route processor controls other components of the system such as power-entry modules, midplane ID, and so on, using dedicated signals. Certain SPAs contain processors that communicate using interprocess communication (IPC) and have loadable software. In addition, the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor on the ESP contains multiple, parallel processors running data‑ and control-plane software. The communication between the control processors does not expose the details of the internal design of the components in order to allow easier evolution of the components.
Q. Is Cisco IOS XE Software the next-generation replacement of Cisco IOS Software?
A. No. Cisco IOS XE Software is an addition to the Cisco IOS Software Family and is designed to enable the Cisco ASR 1000 Series to meet the scalability, availability, and service flexibility requirements for the next‑generation network edge, encompassing enterprise, broadband aggregation, high-end managed CPE, and service provider edge applications.
Q. Can different Cisco IOS Software releases operate in the same network with the Cisco IOS XE Software releases?
A. Yes, Cisco took special care to preserve the interoperability.
Q. Does Cisco IOS XE Software use the same command-line interface (CLI) as Cisco IOS Software?
A. Cisco IOS XE Software uses the Cisco IOS Software CLI. It has additional commands to accommodate the Cisco IOS XE operating system infrastructure and capabilities of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series.
Q. What is the frequency of Cisco IOS XE Software releases?
A. Cisco introduced a new software release strategy with the introduction of the Cisco IOS XE operating system. This strategy accelerates the availability of software and hardware features by introducing a time-based release scheme. Every 4 months a new Cisco IOS XE Software Release is made available with new features. Details of the new software release strategy are discussed in the product bulletin, which is available at http://www.cisco.com/go/asr1000.
Q. What Cisco IOS XE Software images are you offering for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series?
A. The images are referred to as consolidated packages. For the Cisco IOS XE Software, the consolidated packages have been simplified into four options that run on the route processor. Refer to Table 8 for the details about each image. The Cisco ASR RP1 and RP2 consolidated packages are supported on the RP1 and RP2 route processors, respectively. The Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X chassis both have a route processor integrated and run ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X RP specific consolidated packages, respectively. Further, with the introduction of the software activation for license enforcement on the Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X chassis, the ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X both support two “universal” consolidated packages, the Cisco ASR 1001 or ASR 1002-X IOS XE UNIVERSAL and Cisco ASR 1001 or ASR 1002-X IOS XE - NO PAYLOAD ENCRYPTION UNIVERSAL consolidated packages. The respective functions as delivered in IP Base (K9 and no-K9), Advanced IP Services (K9 and non-K9), and Advanced Enterprise Services (K9 and non-K9) are enforced through software licenses. For more details about the software activation on the Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X, please refer to the Cisco ASR 1000 Software Activation Product Bulletin, which covers the details of software activation on the Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X chassis.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series allows you to upgrade or downgrade SIP and SPA software sub-packages without operationally affecting other SIP and SPA functions within the same chassis.

Q. How can I deploy the value-added features on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers?
A. First, select a Cisco IOS XE Software consolidated package that supports the required features. Second, check whether this feature requires a software license. If it does, you must purchase the required license in addition to the Cisco IOS XE consolidated package. The consolidated package and license are linked to the chassis, so if you upgrade from one route processor to another or from one ESP to another, you do not need to purchase a new consolidated package or feature license. The part numbers for the licenses and consolidated packages that are available at FCS are listed in the “Ordering Information” section. Note that in the future more licenses will be introduced. With Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X, system performances are now enforced through software activation. For more details about the software activation on the Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X, please refer to the Cisco ASR 1000 Software Activation Product Bulletin, which covers the details of software activation on the Cisco ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X chassis. For details about ordering, refer to the ordering guide product bulletin posted on http://www.cisco.com/go/asr1000.
Q. What kind of software modularity is offered with Cisco IOS XE Software?
A. Each consolidated package for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series consists of seven different sub-packages. The sub‑packages are designed to maximize the In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) capability. Table 9 describes the functions of each of the seven sub-packages.

Redundancy Support

Q. What are the redundancy and resiliency features of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series?
A. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series offers the following features:

The Cisco ASR 1006 and ASR 1013 support 1 + 1 active and standby redundancy in dual RP and dual ESP configurations. Switchover of the route processor does not result in switchover of the ESP, and switchover of the ESP does not result in switchover of the route processor.

The Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1002-F, ASR 1002, ASR 1002-X, and ASR 1004 support dual Cisco IOS Software redundancy with a single route-processor configuration. This feature is not supported on the Cisco ASR 1006 or Cisco ASR 1013.

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers support Nonstop Forwarding (NSF), Stateful Switchover (SSO), ISSU, and online Insertion and removal (OIR).

Q. What other high-availability features does the Cisco ASR 1000 Series support?
A. The Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1002-Fixed, ASR 1002, ASR 1002-X, and ASR 1004 support dual Cisco IOS Software redundancy, sub-package software upgrade and downgrade, and NSF. For the ASR 1002-F, ASR 1002, and ASR 1004, Cisco IOS Software redundancy requires 4 GB of DRAM on the route processor 1 (ASR1000-RP1) and a High Availability license (Cisco IOS Software redundancy license). For the ASR 1001 and ASR 1002-X, Cisco IOS Software redundancy requires 8 GB of DRAM and the Cisco IOS Software redundancy license. Note: The Cisco ASR 1002-F and ASR 1002 come by default with 4 GB of DRAM. The Cisco ASR1001 and ASR 1002-X come by default with 4 GB of DRAM, upgradable to 8 or 16 GB of DRAM.
