This chapter provides an overview of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers and contains the following sections:

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers are the next generation Cisco midrange router products. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers use an innovative and powerful hardware processor technology known as the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor. The following are the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers:

  • The Cisco ASR 1006 Router is a 12-SPA, 6-rack-unit (RU), hardware-redundant chassis with two Embedded Services Processor (ESP) slots, two Route Processor (RP) slots, and three SIP slots.
  • The Cisco ASR 1004 Router is an 8-SPA, four rack-unit (RU) chassis with one ESP slot, one RP slot, and two SIP slots.
  • The Cisco ASR 1002 Router is a 3-SPA, 2-RU chassis with one embedded services processor slot that comes with the route processor, Cisco ASR 1000 Series Shared Port Adapter Interface Processor (SIP), and 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports built in. For more information about the type of connectors and cables used by the 4-port Gigabit Ethernet built-in SPA, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers SIP and SPA Hardware Installation Guide .
  • The Cisco ASR 1002-F Router is a one half-height SPA, 2-RU chassis. The embedded services processor, route processor, and SPA interface processor (SIP) are integrated with the chassis. In addition, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports are built into the chassis.
  • The Cisco ASR 1013 Router is a 24 half-height shared port adapters, 13-RU chassis that can hold 6 SIPs and provides superslots (more height and power) for the Cisco ASR1000-RP2s and Cisco ASR1000-ESPs. The Cisco ASR 1013 Router is designed with two zones (Zone 1 and Zone 0) for redundancy and superslot spacing. The Cisco ASR 1013 router has four 40G slots and two 100G slots.
  • The Cisco ASR 1001 Router is a one rack-unit chassis that offers a compact form factor router that satisfies customer demands such as low power consumption and decreased usage of rack space. The Cisco ASR 1001 Router has the route processor, embedded services processor, and SIP integrated within the chassis with one half-height SPA slot.
  • The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router is a 3-SPA, 2-RU chassis. The embedded services processor and route processor of this router are integrated in the chassis. There are six small form factor pluggable (SFP) Gigabit Ethernet ports. Depending on the Cisco software license that you install, the router can provide a forwarding bandwidth of 5 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 20 Gbps, or 36 Gbps.

For the single-route-processor Cisco ASR 1000 platforms (Cisco ASR 1002, Cisco ASR 1002-F, Cisco ASR 1002-X and Cisco ASR 1004), the route processor has a dual Cisco IOS Software option that allows these routers to use Cisco IOS software redundancy, Cisco high-availability features, and Nonstop Forwarding (NSF). Single-route-processor Cisco ASR 1000 platforms do not support ISSU upgrade or downgrade. Instead sub-package software upgrade is supported only if the router is running in sub-package mode.


NoteThe Software Redundancy feature requires the router to have 8 GB of DRAM memory.


 

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers run Cisco IOS XE Software and introduce a distributed software architecture that moves many operating system responsibilities out of the IOS process. In this architecture, Cisco IOS, which previously was responsible for almost all of the internal software processes, now runs as one of many Cisco IOS XE processes while allowing other Cisco IOS XE processes to share responsibility for running the router.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers use the powerful Cisco QuantumFlow Processor which provides performance and resiliency for network processors.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers deliver multiple services embedded in the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor. The services supported on the Cisco Packet QuantumFlow Processor include security services (for example, encryption and firewall), quality of service (QoS), Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR), broadband aggregation, and session border controller, among others.

Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router Configurations

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers are available in different packaging configurations. Some of the chassis configurations are modular with separate field-replaceable units (FRUs) for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors, and the shared port adapters.

All FRUs (Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1, Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processor, and SPAs) are designed to work in the different chassis models. The power supplies and fan modules are chassis specific. The SPAs are supported in all chassis configurations although there are SPA restrictions in the Cisco ASR 1002 Router and the Cisco ASR 1002-F Router.

Table 1-3 lists the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router configurations. In this table, HH is half height and FH is full height.

Field-Replaceable Units

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series routers are easy to service; many of their major components are field-replaceable units (FRUs). The following are the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router FRUs:

  • Cisco ASR 1000 Series route processors: RP1 and RP2
  • Cisco ASR 1000 Series embedded services processors: Cisco ASR1000-ESP5, Cisco ASR1000-ESP10, Cisco ASR1000-ESP20, Cisco ASR1000-ESP40, Cisco ASR1000-ESP100, and Cisco ASR1000-ESP200.
  • Shared port adapters
  • Cisco ASR 1000 Series shared port adapter interface processors (SIPs)
  • Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 internal hard drive
  • Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 DIMM memory module (Note that the integrated Cisco ASR1000-RP1 on the Cisco ASR 1002 Router DIMM memory module is not field-replaceable.)
  • USB flash token memory stick
  • AC and DC power supplies
  • Bracket kit—Custom cable-management brackets are mounted to each rack-mount bracket to provide cable management to both sides of the chassis (parallel with card orientation). These brackets are screw-mounted to the rack brackets to enable easy installation and removal. There is a rack-mount bracket for each chassis:

For the Cisco ASR 1006 Router, the cable-management brackets contain five independent cable-management U features to provide cable dressing for each card module slot. For SIPs, these brackets work in tandem with SPA product feature cable management to allow installation and removal of adjacent cards without having to remove cables.

For the Cisco ASR 1004 Router, the cable-management brackets contain three independent cable-management U features to provide cable dressing for each card module slot. For SIPs, these brackets work in tandem with SPA product feature cable management to allow installation and removal of adjacent cards without having to remove cables.

For the Cisco ASR 1002 Router, the cable-management brackets contains one independent cable-management U feature to provide cable dressing for each card module slot. These brackets work in tandem with SPA product feature cable management to allow installation and removal of adjacent cards without having to remove cables.


Note The Cisco ASR 1002-F Router and Cisco ASR 1002-X Router use the same accessories as the Cisco ASR 1002 Router.


For the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, the cable-management brackets contain four independent cable-management U features to provide cable dressing for modules. There are two brackets with four U-feature hooks for each side of the chassis.

For the Cisco ASR 1001 Router, the cable-management bracket contains one independent cable-management U feature to provide cable dressing for each card module slot.

Functional Overview

This section contains the following topics:

Chassis Slot and Logical Interface Numbering

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers have a slot numbering system located on both sides of the card module location. The chassis slots are physically numbered from zero starting at the bottom of the chassis. This section describes the slot numbering for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers:

Cisco ASR 1000 Series SPA Interface Processor (SIP) subslots begin their numbering with “0” and have a horizontal orientation. The SIP subslot numbering is indicated by a small numeric label beside the subslot on the faceplate. Some commands allow you to display information about the SPA itself, such as show idprom module and show hw-module subslot . These commands require you to specify both the physical location of the SIP and SPA in the format, Slot/Subslot, where:

  • Slot—Specifies the chassis slot number in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers where the SIP is installed.
  • Subslot—Specifies a subslot of the SIP where the SPA is installed.
  • Superslots (power zone 0 and power zone 1)—Specifies the Cisco ASR 1013 Router slot spacing divided into zones.

NoteSee the router-specific chapter for chassis slot numbering and naming descriptions.


MAC Address Information

The Media Access Control (MAC) or hardware address is a standardized data link layer address that is required for certain network interface types. These addresses are specific and unique to each port and are not used by other devices in the network. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers assign and control the MAC addresses of its shared port adapters.

You can identify shared port adapter slots by using software commands. To display information about:

  • All shared port adapter slots, use the show interfaces command.
  • A specific shared port adapter slot, use the show interfaces command with the shared port adapter type and slot number in the format show interfaces port-adapter-type slot-number /port-number.

NoteIf you abbreviate the command (sh int) and do not specify shared port adapter type and slot number (or arguments), the system interprets the command as show interfaces and displays the status of all shared port adapters and ports.


The MAC addresses are assigned to the slots in sequence. For example, in the Cisco ASR 1006 Router, the first address is assigned to slot 0 and the last address is assigned to slot 6. The actual MAC address assignment is 16 MAC addresses per SPA slot for half-height SPAs and 64 per SPA slot for full-height SPAs. Also, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 RP Management Ethernet port is assigned one MAC address from the end of the pool and for the Cisco ASR 1006 Router with two Cisco ASR 1000 RP1s, each ASR10000 RP1 is assigned one MAC address.

Using this address scheme, you can remove shared port adapters and insert them into other routers without causing the MAC addresses to move around the network or be assigned to multiple devices.

If the MAC addresses were stored on each shared port adapter, online insertion and removal would not function because you could never replace one shared port adapter with an identical one; the MAC addresses would always be different. Also, each time a shared port adapter was replaced, other devices on the network would have to update their data structures with the new address. If the other devices did not update quickly enough, the same MAC address could appear in more than one device at the same time.


NoteStoring the MAC addresses for every slot in one central location means the addresses stay with the memory device on which they are stored.


Online Insertion and Removal

In the modular chassis configurations, most Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router field-replaceable units (FRUs) support online insertion and removal (OIR). However, the removal of critical non-redundant FRUs will result in service interruption.


NoteAs you disengage the shared port adapter from the router, online insertion and removal (OIR) administratively shuts down all active interfaces in the shared port adapter.


Online insertion and removal (OIR) feature allows you to install and replace shared port adapters while the router is operating; you do not need to notify the software or shut down the system power, although you should not run traffic through the shared port adapter you are removing while it is being removed. Online insertion and removal is a method that is seamless to end users on the network, maintains all routing information, and preserves sessions.

All SPA OIR events are independent of one another. An OIR event of a single SPA does not affect the other SPAs in that ASR1000-SIP10 or any other system function.

The following items describe the OIR differences between the Cisco ASR 1002 Router, the Cisco ASR 1002-F Router, and the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router:

  • The Cisco ASR 1002 Router supports the integrated Cisco ASR1000-RP1, which is a combined route processor and carrier card that are not field-replaceable units. The Cisco ASR1000-ESP5 or ASR1000-ESP10 are field-replaceable units.
  • The Cisco ASR 1002-F Router supports an integrated route processor Cisco ASR1002-RP1 and an integrated embedded services processor Cisco ASR1000-ESP-F, which are not field-replaceable. The Cisco ASR1002-SIP10-F module is not removable; but the one half-height SPA is a field-replaceable unit.
  • The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router supports an integrated route processor (Cisco ASR1002-RP2) and an integrated embedded services processor. Both these components are not field-replaceable. The router has a built-in 6x1GE SPA that occupies the SPA Bay 0. In addition, there are three half-height SPA bays for field-replaceable SPAs.

The following is a functional description of OIR for background information only; for specific procedures for installing and replacing a shared port adapter in Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers, refer to the online configuration note for each shared port adapter.

When you remove or insert a shared port adapter in a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, the Control Processor notifies the Cisco ASR1000-RP1, which in turn notifies the forwarding engine control processor (FECP), and then performs the following steps:

  • Rapidly scans the midplane for configuration changes.
  • Initializes all newly inserted shared port adapters, noting any removed interfaces and placing them in the administratively shutdown state.
  • Brings all previously configured interfaces on the shared port adapter back to the state they were in when they were removed. Any newly inserted interfaces are put in the administratively shutdown state, as if they were present (but not configured) at boot time. If a similar shared port adapter type is reinserted into a slot, its ports are configured and brought online up to the port count of the original SPA.

Environmental Monitoring and Reporting Functions

Environmental monitoring and reporting functions allow you to maintain normal system operation by identifying and resolving adverse conditions prior to loss of operation.


Caution To prevent overheating the chassis, ensure that your system is drawing cool inlet air. Over temperature conditions can occur if the system is drawing in the exhaust air of other equipment. Ensure adequate clearance around the sides of the chassis so that cooling air can flow through the chassis interior unimpeded and exhaust air exits the chassis and is not drawn into the inlet vent of another device.

Environmental Monitoring

The environmental monitoring functions use sensors to monitor the temperature of the cooling air as it moves through the chassis.

The local power supplies provide the ability to monitor:

  • Input and output voltage
  • Output current
  • Outlet temperature

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers are expected to meet the following environmental operating conditions:

  • Operating Temperature Nominal: 5° to 40°C
  • Operating Temperature Short Term: –5° to +55°C (not applicable to the Cisco ASR 1001 Router)
  • Operating Humidity Nominal: 5% to 85% noncondensing
  • Operating Humidity Short Term: 5% to 90% noncondensing (not applicable to the Cisco ASR 1001 Router)
  • Operating Altitude: 198 to 13,200 feet (60 to 4000 meters)
  • DC Input Range: –40.5 to –72 VDC
  • AC Input Range: 85 to 264 VAC

If the air temperature exceeds a defined threshold, the system controller displays warning messages on the console terminal, and if the temperature exceeds the shutdown threshold, the system controller shuts down the system.

In addition, the power supplies monitor internal power supply temperatures and voltages. A power supply is either within tolerance (normal) or out of tolerance (critical). If an internal power supply temperature or voltage reaches a critical level, the power supply shuts down without any interaction with the system processor.

The environmental monitoring functions use the following levels of status conditions to monitor the system:

  • Normal—All monitored parameters are within normal tolerances.
  • Warning—The system has exceeded a specified threshold. The system continues to operate, but operator action is recommended to bring the system back to a normal state.
  • Critical—An out-of-tolerance temperature or voltage condition exists. The system continues to operate; however, the system is approaching shutdown. Immediate operator action is required.
  • Shutdown—The processor has detected a temperature condition that could result in physical damage to system components and has disabled DC power to all internal components. This condition requires immediate operator action. All DC power remains disabled until you toggle the power switch. Before any shutdown, the system logs the status of monitored parameters in NVRAM so you can retrieve it later to help determine the cause of the problem.
  • Power supply shutdown—The power supply detected an internal out-of-tolerance overvoltage, overcurrent, or temperature condition and shut itself down. All DC power remains disabled until you toggle the power switch.

Fan Failures

When the system power is on, all fans should be operational. The system continues to operate if a fan fails. When a fan fails, the system displays the following message:

router: 00:03:46:%ENVM-3-BLOWER:Fan 2 may have failed
 

If the air temperature exceeds a defined threshold, the system controller displays warning messages on the console terminal, and if the temperature exceeds the shutdown threshold, the system controller shuts down the system.

If the system does shut down because the temperature exceeded the shutdown threshold, the system displays the following message on the console screen and in the environment display when the system restarts:

Queued messages:
%ENVM-1-SHUTDOWN: Environmental Monitor initiated shutdown
 

Reporting Functions

The chassis manager on the forwarding engine control processor manages the local resources of the forwarding processor. It manages the ESI (Enhanced Serdes Interconnect) which are the datapath links on the midplane connecting the Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1s, SIPs, and standby ESP modules to the active Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processor. It communicates with the chassis manager on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1 to report the status and health, including detected hardware failures, ESI status, software process status, and the state of thermal sensors.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers display warning messages on the console if the chassis interface-monitored parameters exceed a threshold. You can also retrieve and display environmental status reports with the following commands:

  • show environment all
  • show version
  • show inventory
  • show platform
  • show platform software status control-processor
  • show diag

Parameters are measured and reporting functions are updated every 60 seconds. A brief description of each of these commands follows.


NoteThe example outputs displayed in this section are from the Cisco ASR 1004 Router. Similar output is displayed for all Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

Cisco Product Identification Standard

This section describes the Cisco products and services product identification standard. This feature provides you with the ability to effectively integrate and manage Cisco products in your network and business operations.

Unique Device Identifier

The Unique Device Identifier (UDI) is the Cisco product identification standard for hardware products. A product identification standard removes barriers to enterprise automation and can help you reduce operating expenses.

The UDI provides a consistent electronic, physical, and associated business-to-business information product identification standard.

The UDI is a combination of five data elements. Table 1-4 lists the UDI elements.

Table 1-4 Cisco UDI Elements

Additional product information

The combination of serial number and product ID (PID) is unique and consistent across all Cisco products. The PID that is coded on hardware is called a base product identifier.

Additional orderable PIDs may be associated to a base PID. For instance, an orderable PID may describe a packaging configuration for a product or a bundled group of products sold, tested, and shipped together. Specific unique device identifier (UDI) benefits include the following:

  • Identifies:

Individual Cisco products in your networks

PIDs and SNs for service and replaceable products

VIDs for product version visibility

  • Facilitates discovery of products subject to recall or upgrade
  • Enhances inventory automation of Cisco products

The Cisco product identification standard provides the following features:

  • Version visibility—Cisco continuously improves products through feature additions. Product changes are indicated by incrementing the version ID (VID), which provides version visibility to help you understand and manage product changes. The VID management ensures consistency of changes from product to product.
  • Operating expense reduction— The Cisco UDI provides accurate and detailed network inventory information; identifying each Cisco product in a network element through a standard interface. Cisco operating systems can view and use this data, allowing you to automate your electronic inventory.
  • Consistency across product layers—The UDI is designed into hardware products and cannot overwritten in error. Operating and management systems discover the UDI through standard interfaces and display the UDI in standard outputs. Standard interfaces include the IETF standard ENTITY-MIB.
