Cisco ASR 1000 Series 40-Gbps Embedded Services Processor

Hierarchical Navigation

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)
