This chapter describes the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router and details the procedures for installing the router on an equipment shelf, tabletop, or an equipment rack.

This chapter contains the following sections:

Cisco ASR 1002-X Router Description

The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router is a part of the Cisco ASR 1000 Aggregation Services Routers. The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router is a compact, small form factor router (SSF) that fulfil customer demands such as low power consumption and decreased usage of rack space.

The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router supports three half-height SPAs and a built-in 6xGE SPA, as also all the general-purpose routing and security features of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.

The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router supports:

  • An integrated embedded services processor that provides a forwarding bandwidth of 5 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 20 Gbps, or 36 Gbps, depending on the Cisco software license that is installed on the router.
  • Hardware-based encryption with 4 Gbps of cryptography bandwidth.
  • An integrated route processor with upgradeable BootROM and 8 GB eUSB bulk storage.
  • 4 GB, 8GB, or 16 GB memory. The memory unit is field replaceable. By default, the router is shipped with the 4 GB memory unit.

Note If you plan to use the software redundancy feature on the router, you must order either the 8 GB memory unit or the 16 GB memory unit.


  • Two USB ports for USB flash sticks.
  • 1 + 1 redundant AC or DC power supplies.
  • Stratum 3 network clocking per GR-1244-CORE, with T1/E1 BITS interface, SPAs, or any of the six built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports can be used as timing sources.
  • Console ports and auxiliary ports, Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbps network management ports.
  • Clocking, which includes Stratum 3/G.813 Clocking, BITS, In/Out, and GPS input/output interface as well as a ToD interface. The router supports network synchronization clock prioritization.
  • Three half-height SPA slots, which can accommodate any combination of three half-height SPAs or one half-height SPA and one full-height SPA. Each SPA slot can support a throughput of up to 10 Gbps. With the exception of the 2-Port Gigabit Synchronous Ethernet SPA (SPA-2X1GE-SYNCE) and the Cisco WebEx Node SPA, all the SPAs supported by the other Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers are supported by the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router.

Note On the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router, the copper small form-factor pluggable (SFP) port's flow control is on, regardless of the duplex setting. In contrast, on the Cisco ASR 1002 Router, the copper SFP port's flow control is off when the duplex setting is Half.


  • Built-in 6x1GE SPA providing six SPF-based Gigabit Ethernet connections, designated as SPA bay 0. For optical SFPs, the Gigabit Ethernet ports are SyncE capable. The Gigabit Ethernet ports are not SyncE capable for copper SFPs.

For information about the SFP transceiver modules that are compatible with the Cisco ASR 1002-X Built-in Gigabit Ethernet Ports (6x1GE), refer to the “Modular Optics Compatibility” section in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers SIP and SPA Hardware Installation Guide .

  • An optional hard drive.

The forwarding bandwidth provided by the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router's ESP can be upgraded to 36 Gbps, depending on the Cisco software license that you install. The power supply modules of the router are field-replaceable units.

General Rack Installation Guidelines

When planning your rack installation, consider the following guidelines:

  • The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router requires a minimum of 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) rack units of vertical rack space. Measure the proposed rack location before mounting the chassis in the rack.
  • Before using a particular rack, check for obstructions (such as a power strip) that could impair rack mount installation. If a power strip does impair a rack mount installation, remove the power strip before installing the chassis, and replace the strip after the chassis is installed.
  • Allow sufficient clearance around the rack for maintenance. If the rack is mobile, you can push it back near a wall or cabinet for normal operation and pull it out for maintenance (installing or moving cards, connecting cables, or replacing or upgrading components). Otherwise, allow 19 inches (48.3 cm) of clearance space to remove field-replaceable units.
  • Maintain a minimum clearance of 3 inches on the front side and back side of the chassis for the cooling air inlet and exhaust ports, respectively. Avoid placing the chassis in an overly congested rack or next to another equipment rack; otherwise, the heated exhaust air from other equipment may enter the inlet air vents and cause an overtemperature condition inside the router.

Caution To prevent the chassis from overheating, never install a Cisco ASR 1002-X Router in an enclosed room that is not properly ventilated or air conditioned.

  • Always install the heavier equipment in the lower half of a rack to maintain a low center of gravity to prevent the rack from falling over.
  • Install and use the cable management brackets included with the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router to keep the cables organized and out of the way of the cards and processors. Ensure that cables from other equipment already installed in the rack do not impair access to the cards or require you to disconnect cables unnecessarily to perform equipment maintenance or upgrades.
  • Install rack stabilizers (if available) before you mount the chassis.
  • Provide an adequate chassis ground (earth) connection for your router chassis.

In addition to the preceding guidelines, review the precautions for avoiding excessive temperature conditions described in the “Site Environmental Requirements” section.

Guidelines for an Equipment Shelf or Tabletop Installation

The chassis should already be in the area where you will install it. If you have not determined where to install your chassis, see the “Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers Component Overview” section for information about site considerations.

If you are not rack-mounting your Cisco ASR 1000 series chassis, place it on a sturdy equipment shelf or tabletop.

When installing the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router on an equipment shelf or tabletop, ensure that the surface is clean and that you have considered the following:

  • The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router requires at least 3 inches (7.62 cm) of clearance at the inlet and exhaust vents (the front, top, and rear sides of the chassis).
  • The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router should be installed off the floor. Dust that accumulates on the floor is drawn into the interior of the router by the cooling fans. Excessive dust inside the router can cause overtemperature conditions and component failures.
  • There must be approximately 19 inches (48.3 cm) of clearance at the front and rear of the chassis to install and replace FRUs, or to access network cables and equipment.
  • The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router needs adequate ventilation. Do not install it in an enclosed cabinet where ventilation is inadequate.
  • Ensure that the cable management bracket is available if you plan to install it on the front of the chassis.
  • An adequate chassis ground (earth) connection exists for your router chassis. (See the “Attaching a Chassis Ground Connection” section.)
  • When handling the chassis, always follow proper lifting practices as outlined in the “Electrical Safety” section.

Equipment Shelf or Tabletop Installation Procedure

To mount your Cisco ASR 1002-X Router on an equipment shelf or tabletop, follow these steps.


Step 1 Remove debris and dust, if any, from the tabletop or platform, as well as from the surrounding area.

Step 2 Lift the chassis into position on the equipment shelf or tabletop (see Figure 12-8).


Warning At least two people are required to lift the chassis onto a tabletop or platform. To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back. Statement 164


Figure 12-8 Lifting the Chassis

 


NoteThe chassis in The chassis in Figure 12-8 does not represent the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router.



Step 1 Attach the front rack mount brackets. Locate the threaded holes in the front sides of the chassis (first holes beyond the vent holes).

Step 2 Align the front rack mount bracket to one side of the chassis.

Step 3 Insert and tighten the black screws that shipped with the chassis on one side.

Step 4 Repeat Step-2 through Step-3 on the other side of the chassis. Use all the screws to secure the rack mount brackets to the chassis.


Note The chassis rack mount brackets must be installed first so that you can attach the cable management brackets to the chassis rack mount brackets after the chassis is installed in the rack.


Step 5 Gather the two cable management brackets and screws shipped with your chassis. Figure 12-9 shows the cable management brackets attached on the front of the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router.


Note Ensure that the cable management U feature device has the open end pointing upwards when you attach it to the chassis

Step 6 Screw the cable management bracket to each side of the rack mount brackets already attached to the chassis. Use two screws for each cable management bracket. Use the packet of four screws.

Step 7 Verify if all the screws are securely tightened.

Step 8 Go to the “Attaching a Chassis Ground Connection” section to continue the installation.


 

Rack-Mounting the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router

The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router can be installed in an existing rack with equipment or in an empty rack with no equipment. The chassis can be mounted on either of these rack types:

  • Two-post rack, either 19-inch or 23-inch equipment rack. Inner clearance (the width between the inner sides of the two posts or rails) must be at least 19 inches (48.26 cm). The height of the chassis is 3.47 inches (8.8 cm). Air flow through the chassis is from front to back.
  • Four-post, 19-inch equipment rack. Inner clearance (the width between the inner sides of the two posts or rails) must be at least 19 inches (48.26 cm). The height of the chassis is 3.47 inches (8.8 cm). Air flow through the chassis is from front to back.

NoteWhen handling the chassis, always follow proper lifting practices. See the When handling the chassis, always follow proper lifting practices. See the “Chassis-Lifting Guidelines” section.


The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router can be installed with both front or rear rack mount brackets.

Verifying Rack Dimensions

Before you install the chassis, measure the space between the vertical mounting flanges (rails) on your equipment rack to verify that the rack conforms to the measurements shown in Figure 12-10.


Step 1 Mark and measure the distance between the holes on the left and right mounting rails.

The distance should measure 18.31 inches ± 0.06 inches (46.5 cm ± 0.15 cm).


Note Measure for pairs of holes near the bottom, middle, and top of the equipment rack to ensure that the rack posts are parallel.


Step 2 Measure the space between the inner edges of the left front and right front mounting flanges on the equipment rack.

The space must be at least 17.7 inches (45 cm) to accommodate the chassis that is 17.25 inches (43.8 cm) wide and fits between the mounting posts on the rack.

Attaching the Chassis Rack Mount Brackets

This section explains how to attach the front and rear rack mount brackets to the chassis. Before installing the chassis in the rack, you must install the rack mount brackets on each side of the chassis.

The parts and tools required for installing the rack mount brackets and cable management brackets are listed in the “Tools and Equipment” section.


NoteThe cable management brackets are attached to the chassis after you install the chassis rack mount brackets on the chassis and mount the chassis in the rack. The cable management brackets are attached to the chassis after you install the chassis rack mount brackets on the chassis and mount the chassis in the rack.


Chassis Front Rack Mount Brackets

Determine where you want the chassis to be mounted in the rack. If you are mounting more than one chassis in the rack, start from the bottom up or the center of the rack. Figure 12-11 shows the brackets attached to the chassis. Depending on the bracket holes you use, the chassis may protrude in the rack.

To install the front rack mount brackets on the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Locate the threaded holes on the side of the chassis. Ensure that you hold the front rack mount bracket with the ear and holes facing outward and towards the front of the chassis.

This completes the steps for attaching the rear rack mount brackets to the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router.


Caution To make the installation easier, before you mount the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router in a rack, use the information provided in this chapter to determine which rack mount bracket ear holes to use when positioning the chassis in the rack. Using the designated ear holes on the rack mount bracket simplifies installation of the cable management bracket.

Installing the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router in a Rack

After installing the rack mount brackets on the chassis, you mount the chassis by securing the rack mount brackets to the two posts or the mounting strips in the rack using the screws provided. Because the rack mount brackets support the weight of the entire chassis, use all the screws to fasten the two rack mount brackets to the rack posts.


Warning To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to ensure your safety:
-This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack.
-When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.
-If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack. Statement 1006


We recommend that you allow at least 1 or 2 inches (2.54 or 5.08 cm) of vertical clearance between the router and any equipment directly above and below it.

To install the chassis in the rack, perform the following steps:


Step 1 On the chassis, ensure that all the screw fasteners on the installed components are securely tightened.

Step 2 Ensue that your path to the rack is unobstructed. If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise stabilized. (See the next sections on the types of racks you can use to install the chassis.)

Step 3 (Optional) Install a shelf in the rack to support the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router. This helps support the chassis when you secure it to the rack.

Step 4 Lift the chassis into position between the rack posts with the help of another person.

Step 5 Align the mounting bracket holes with the rack post holes and attach the chassis to the rack.


Note If you are using a shelf, raise the chassis to the level of the shelf. Let the bottom of the chassis rest on the brackets, but continue to support the chassis.


Step 6 Position the chassis until the rack-mounting flanges are flush against the mounting rails on the rack.


Tip To allow space to attach the cable management brackets to the chassis in the rack easily, ensure that you use the rack mount bracket ear holes mentioned in the subsequent steps.


Step 7 Hold the chassis in position against the mounting rails in the equipment rack and perform these steps:

a. Insert the bottom screw into the second hole from the bottom of the rack mount ear and use a hand-held screw driver to tighten the screw to the rack rail.


Tip To make installation easier, insert one screw at the bottom of the chassis and the next screw at the top of the chassis diagonally from the first screw.


b. Insert the top screw into the second hole from the top of the rack mount ear diagonally from the bottom screw, and tighten the screw to the rack rail.

c. Insert the four screws to secure the chassis to the rack equipment.


Tip As a result of using the specified rack mount bracket ear holes, the cable management bracket can be easily attached to the rack mount bracket when the chassis is in the rack.


Step 8 Tighten all the screws on each side to secure the chassis to the equipment rack.


 

Two-Post Rack Installation

Step 2 Ensure that the negative and positive leads are disconnected from the site power source.

Step 3 Using a wire stripper, strip approximately 0.55 inch (1.39 cm) from the negative, positive, and ground lead.

Step 4 Insert the stripped end of the ground lead all the way into the ground lead receptacle on the –48 VDC input power supply, and tighten the receptacle screw using a 3.5 mm flat-blade screwdriver to a torque of 0.5 to 0.6 Nm.

Step 5 Insert the stripped end of the positive lead all the way into the positive lead receptacle and tighten the receptacle screw using the same 3.5mm flat-blade screwdriver.

Step 6 Repeat this step for the negative lead.


Note Ensure the entire stripped end of each lead is inserted all the way into its receptacle. If any exposed wire at the stripped end of a lead is visible after inserting the lead into its receptacle, remove the lead from the receptacle, use the wire stripper to cut the stripped end of the lead, and repeat Step 3 through Step 6.


Step 7 After tightening the receptacle screw for the ground, positive, and negative –48 VDC-input leads, use a cable tie to secure the three leads to the power supply faceplate, as shown in Figure 12-24. When securing the ground, positive, and negative –48 VDC-input leads to the power supply faceplate, leave a small service loop in the ground lead to ensure that the ground lead is the last lead to disconnect from the power supply if a great deal of strain is placed on all three leads, as shown in Figure 12-24.


Caution Ensure that the ground lead wire has a service loop before you tie wrap the lead wires to prevent the ground from being disconnected.

Step 8 Connect the ground, positive, and negative leads to the power source.

Step 9 Turn the branch source breaker on.

Step 10 Place the –48 VDC Standby switch in the On (|) position. The power supply LEDs light when power is supplied to the router.


 

You have completed the procedure for connecting a –48 VDC power supply in the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router.

Connecting the +24 VDC Power Supply to the Router

The +24 VDC power supply uses a spring-loaded terminal block. The input terminal block requires 8 AWG multistrand wiring to support input current. Features are provided for strain relieving the input wires from the terminal block on the front panel. The recommended branch circuit breaker for the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router +24 VDC power supply is a 40 A UL-listed circuit breaker.

Before you begin, read these important notices about the +24 VDC power supply:

  • The labeling displays +27 VDC INPUT. This labeling describes the nominal voltage provided at a cell site.
  • Observe the polarity location. Unlike the polarity labels of the –48 VDC power supply (ground, positive, and negative), the polarity labels on the +24 VDC are ground, negative, and positive, as shown in Figure 12-25 from right to left as they appear on the actual power supply unit.
  • The ground (GND) lead is always installed first and removed last.
  • The +24 VDC power supply uses a spring-loaded terminal block; therefore, have the recommended screwdriver size available.

Warning When you install the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last. Statement 1046


To connect the +24 VDC power supply in the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router, follow these steps:


Step 1 At the rear of the router, ensure that the power Standby switch is in the Standby position.

Step 2 Ensure that the positive and negative leads are disconnected from the site power source and the source circuit breaker is turned off.

Step 3 Using a wire stripper, strip the recommended amount of wire insulation, which is 1.5 cm (0.6 inch) from the negative, positive, and ground leads.


Note The stripping length is common to all types of wire used.


Figure 12-26 shows the wire strip and lead.

Lead wire stripping area


Warning Remove the covering from exactly the specified length of each wire. If you strip too much of the covering, exposed wire protruding from the terminal block will create an electrical hazard. If you strip too little of the covering, the wire might not make a good contact with the terminal, or it might not be held securely in place in the terminal.


Step 4 Using a 3.5mm screwdriver, insert the screwdriver at an angle to release the spring while you install the stripped lead wire as shown in Figure 12-27.

Figure 12-27 Inserting a Screwdriver Into the +24 VDC Power Supply Terminal Block

 

Step 5 Carefully push the screwdriver at a forward angle until you relieve the spring contact.

Step 6 With the screwdriver still inserted, gently push the lead wire (ground lead first) in until the copper wire, as shown in Figure 12-28, is no longer visible (see Figure 12-29).


Caution Ensure that no copper portion of the lead wire is exposed. Only the wire insulation should visible.


Caution Do not install wire into a terminal block that has not had its insulation removed.

Step 7 After the lead wire is fully inserted, perform these steps:

a. Hold the lead wire in place while you remove the screwdriver.

b. After the screwdriver is completely removed, gently tug the lead wire to ensure that it is securely installed.

Figure 12-30 shows a lead wire that is fully inserted, and the screwdriver being removed while you gently tug the lead wire.

Note Ensure that the stripped end of each lead wire is twisted tightly together. This makes insertion easier. Also ensure that the entire lead wire is inserted all the way into its receptacle. If exposed wire is visible at the stripped end of a lead after inserting the lead into its receptacle, remove the lead from the receptacle, use the wire stripper to cut the stripped end of the lead, and then reinsert.


Step 9 After inserting the ground wire, leave an extra service loop in the ground lead, as shown in Figure 12-32 to ensure that the ground lead is the last lead to disconnect from the power supply if a great deal of strain is placed on all three leads.

Step 10 After tightening the receptacle screw for the ground, and leaving the extra service loop in the ground lead, use a cable tie to secure the three leads to the power supply faceplate tie-wrap tab, as shown in Figure 12-32, item 5.

Step 11 Turn on the branch source breaker.

Step 12 Move the power supply Standby switch to the On (|) position. The power supply LEDs light when power is supplied to the router.


 

This completes the steps for installing the +24 VDC power supply in the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router.

Connecting a Terminal to the Console Port

The integrated route processor has an asynchronous serial (EIA/TIA-232) RJ-45 console port labeled CON on its front panel. You can connect this port to most types of video terminals using the console cable kit that is included with your Cisco ASR 1002-X Router. The console cable kit contains:

  • One RJ-45-to-RJ-45 crossover cable
  • One RJ-45-to-DB-9 (female) adapter

A crossover cable reverses pin connections from one end to the other. In other words, it connects pin 1 (at one end) to pin 8 (at the other end), pin 2 to pin 7, pin 3 to pin 6, and so on. You can identify a crossover cable by comparing the two modular ends of the cable. Hold the cable ends in your hand, side-by-side, with the tabs at the back. Ensure that the wire connected to the outside (left) pin of the left plug (pin 1) is the same color as the wire connected to the outside (right) pin of the right plug (pin 8).

Use the following procedure to connect a video terminal to the console port on a route processor.


NoteEach Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1 must have a console port connection (typically to a terminal server) if you are running a redundant configuration in the chassis. Each Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1 must have a console port connection (typically to a terminal server) if you are running a redundant configuration in the chassis.


Perform the following procedure to connect a terminal to a console port:


Step 1 Connect one end of the RJ-45 cable to the serial RJ-45 port (CON) on the front panel (see Figure 12-33).

Step 2 Run the cable up and through the cable management bracket and connect the other end of the RJ-45 cable to the RJ-45 adapter (see Figure 12-33).

Step 3 Connect the adapter to your video terminal to complete the cable connection.

Step 4 Power on your video terminal.

Step 5 Configure your video terminal to match the following default console port settings:

  • 9600 baud
  • 8 data bits
  • No parity generation or checking
  • 1 stop bit
  • No flow control

Step 6 Continue with the installation by referring to the procedure described in the “Connecting External Cables to the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router” section.


 

Connecting External Cables to the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router

Keep the following guidelines in mind when connecting external cables to the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router:

  • To reduce the chance of interference, avoid crossing high-power lines with any interface cables.
  • Verify all the cabling limitations (particularly, distance) before powering on the system.

Auxiliary Connection

This asynchronous EIA/TIA-232 serial port (AUX) is used to connect a modem to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1 for remote administrative access.

Use the following procedure to connect the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router to a modem:


Step 1 Connect one end of the modem cable to the RJ-45 port on the primary Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1, labeled AUX. See Figure 6-15 to view an AUX port connection.

Step 2 Run the cable up and through the cable management bracket and connect the other end of the cable to your modem.
