Router Hardware Installation
For Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router hardware installation and configuration information, refer to the installation and configuration guide for your router. The guide includes information on the router switch fabric and how it affects the operation of SIPs, as well as SIP slot locations, slot width, and other requirements.
Note References to line cards in the router hardware installation and configuration guides apply equally to SIPs.
Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 SIPs are supported on all Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers.
Summary descriptions of all SIPs supported on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router are shown in
Table 1-2 SIP Summary
Maximum Number of Each Type of SPA Supported per SIP
1.The OC192 POS SPA is single-width, single-height, however it is “logically” double-width in that it cannot run with another SPA in the adjacent bay, unless the other SPA is shut down.
SIP Software and Hardware Compatibility
For software configuration information, refer to the Cisco IOS XR software configuration and command reference publications for the installed Cisco IOS XR release. Also refer to the Cisco IOS XR software release notes for additional information.
Table 1-3 lists the Cisco IOS XR releases that are compatible with supported SIPs.
To ensure compatibility with the software, your SIPs should have a specific hardware revision number. The number is printed on a label affixed to the component side of the card. The hardware revision number can be displayed by using the show diag
Table 1-3 lists the hardware revision number for all supported SIPs.

Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 Overview
There are two types of Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 available; A9K-SIP-700 and A9K-SIP-700-8G.
A9K-SIP-700 supports 4 GB of memory.
A9K-SIP-700-8G supports 8 GB of memory.
Both types of Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 are identical in appearance and can be identified by the PID located on the faceplate of the SIP.
The following sections describe the Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700:
The main Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 board components are shown in Figure 1-1.

The Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 supports a maximum of 2 single-width, double-height SPAs, 4 single-width, single-height SPAs, 2 double-width, single-height SPAs, or 1 double-width, double-height SPA. Combinations are also supported, for example 2 single-width, single-height SPAs and 1 double-width, single-height SPA. The Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 faceplate has one Status LED. Figure 1-2 shows the Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 faceplate with 2 double-width, single-height SPAs.

SPA Subslot Numbering on the Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700
The Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 supports up to 2 single-width, double-height SPAs, up to 4 single-width, single-height SPAs, or up to 2 double-width, single-height SPAs. The Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 does not support double-width, double-height SPAs.Note that while the OC192 POS SPA is single-width, single-height, it is “logically” double-width in that it cannot run with another SPA in the adjacent bay, unless the other SPA is shut down.

SPA Interface Addresses on the Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700
A Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router identifies a SPA interface address by its rack number, SIP slot number, SPA subslot, and port number on the SPA, in the format
. Subslots and ports are numbered starting from 0, so each Cisco ASR 9000 SIP-700 has two subslots 0 (left) and 1 (right). For example, the interface addresses of a 2-port SPA located in the second SIP subslot, where the SIP is inserted into router line card slot 3 in rack 0 are 0/3/1/0 and 0/3/1/1. Figure 1-4 shows the slot, subslot, and port locations for the 2-Port Channelized OC-12/DS0 SPA on a Cisco ASR 9006 6-slot chassis.
