Edge and access integrated as one network virtualized (nV) system. That’s what you get with the Cisco® ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2, which use the Cisco ASR 9000 Series nV technology to integrate access and edge functions. The Cisco ASR 900 0v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 operate as an extension shelf of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers, providing delivery of Cisco ASR 9000 Series services from the Cisco ASR 9000v or Cisco ASR 9000v-V2. Using nV technology lets you dramatically reduce your operational costs by simplifying the access and edge network and by delivering tremendous service and network scale through the use of the Cisco ASR 9000 distributed control plane, which extends feature processing to the access layer.

Product Overview

Deployed adjacent to, or remotely from, its Cisco ASR 9000 Series host, the environmentally hardened, front-access, low-power, ultra-compact Cisco ASR 9000v and ASR 9000v-V2 delivers ASR 9000 Series services and scale at locations that are otherwise unachievable by either an access system or an edge system. Because the nV technology extends the Cisco ASR 9000 Series control plane and management interface over a fabric port that incorporates the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 as a component of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host, installation, turn-up, Element Management System (EMS) and Network Management System (NMS) integration, and service activation can be accomplished in a matter of minutes (Figure 1).

Features and Benefits of the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000 nV Technology

Features and benefits include the following (Figure 2).

Figure 2.      Network Virtualized System

   Feature alignment

Because services and features of the nV technology are provided by the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host, the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 reduce the error-prone and frustrating guesswork of aligning the continuously evolving features, services, and behavior of otherwise independently deployed access and edge systems.

   Flexible topologies

The Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 can be deployed adjacent to, or remotely from their Cisco ASR 9000 Series host, supporting applications that require high-density ports, or many remote points of presence. The Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 can be directly connected to the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host, including over a dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) system, or evolve to operate over other topologies.

   Service scale

By taking advantage of the industry-leading service and network scale of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series edge system, the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 redefines the relationship between service scale and packaging.

   Resiliency

The Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 can be connected to multiple Cisco ASR 9000 Series redundant hosts. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series control plane extension to the Cisco ASR 9000v delivers resiliency to Cisco ASR 9000v shelf, access port, and fabric port failures.

   Ease of certification, training, and deployment

Because feature provisioning, command-line interface (CLI), management system integration, software maintenance, and feature processing are provided by the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host using Cisco IOS® XR Software, the incremental effort for certification, operator training, network integration, and deployment of a Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 is dramatically reduced.

   Ease of management

Management of a Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 will be dramatically reduced relative to a standalone network element, because:

     The Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 are not deployed, configured, upgraded, or integrated into the EMS and NMS as an independent network element.

     The functions provided by the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 are reduced relative to a standalone network element.

     Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 software images are managed through the Cisco ASR 9000 software Management infrastructure.

   Ultra-low power and footprint

With power requirements comparable to a light bulb and a physical profile comparable to a laptop, the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 delivers the advanced features and services of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series at a tiny fraction of the power draw or the footprint of any comparable edge router.

   Environmentally hardened design

The Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 hardened design supports deployment of Cisco ASR 9000 Series services in cabinets and non-temperature-controlled buildings.

   Front access

The fully front-access Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 can be mounted against a wall or cabinet or back-to-back with other equipment in a single cabinet with complete serviceability through the front panel.

   Ease of EMS and NMS integration

The incremental effort to integrate the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 into a network with the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is dramatically reduced because the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host presents the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 to the EMS and NMS as a component of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series and because provisioning, services, and feature processing are delivered by the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host using its existing schema.

   ACT support

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series Craft Tool (ACT) that is available with the Cisco ASR 9000 Series host provides a graphical representation of the Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 status as part of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, as well as administration of the ASR 9000v software.

   Cisco Prime support

The Cisco ASR 9000v is supported under Cisco Prime for Service Providers, Cisco’s advanced Element Management System (EMS). Support includes discovery, maintenance, provisioning, and fault management.

   Chassis options:

     AC - AC chassis with three-pronged connector

     DC ANSI - DC chassis with A/B-power feeds and ANSI connectors

     DC ETSI - DC chassis with A/B power feeds and ETSI connectors

   Field-replaceable fan tray and filter

The Cisco ASR 9000v and Cisco ASR 9000v-V2 include a front-accessed field-replaceable fan tray, as well as a field-replaceable filter.

Product Interfaces
