Supported SIP Features

The Cisco ASR1000-SIP10, is a high-performance, feature-rich SPA interface processor that functions as a carrier card for shared port adapters (SPAs) on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers. The SIP is supported on the Cisco Aggregation Services Router 1000 Series, and is compatible with one or more platform-independent SPAs. For more information on SPA compatibility, see the “SIP and SPA Compatibility” section.

This section provides a list of some of the primary features supported by the SIP hardware and software. For feature compatibility information by SIP and SPA combination, and information about configuring these features, see Chapter1, “Configuring the SIP”
