Cisco ASR 1000 Series 40-Gbps Embedded Services Processor

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors (ESPs) offer innovative new capabilities for forwarding and queuing in silicon. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 40-Gbps ESP is supported on the Cisco ASR 1006 and 1013 Routers. On the Cisco ASR 1006 and 1013 Routers, the ESP can be deployed in a redundant configuration.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series ESPs handle data-plane processing tasks for all network traffic. The modules perform all baseline router packet operations, including:

  • MAC classification
  • Quality-of-service (QoS) classification, policing, and shaping
  • Security access control lists (ACLs)
  • VPNs
  • Load balancing
  • NetFlow

They are also responsible for advanced services such as:

  • Zone-based firewall
  • Encryption services
  • Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR)
  • Network Address Translation (NAT)
  • Flexible packet matching (FPM)
