The following sections list the new hardware and software features that are supported by the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.7S:

New Hardware Features in Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Release 3.7S

The following are the new hardware features in Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Release 3.7S:

Cisco ASR 1002-X Router

The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router is a 3-SPA, 2-RU chassis. The embedded services processor and route processor are integrated into the chassis. There are 6 small form factor pluggable (SFP) Gigabit Ethernet ports. The router provides a forwarding bandwidth of up to 36 Gbps. The Cisco ASR 1002-X Router supports all the general-purpose routing and security features of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.

For detailed information, see the following Cisco document:

ISIS BFD TLV

The IS-IS Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) Tag Length Value (TLV) feature provides a faster method to detect a loss of an IS-IS adjacency. Before, when an IS-IS adjacency reached the UP state (and therefore could be used for forwarding), a BFD session needed to be established with that neighbor. Now, a BFD session is maintained as long as the hello holddown timer for the neighbor does not expire, which is new for BFD TLV. The BFD session is only deleted if the neighbor hello times out. If BFD signals to IS-IS that a session has gone DOWN, the adjacency associated with that session will transition to DOWN state. Once the BFD session goes back UP, the adjacency state can transition back to an UP state. For a given IS-IS topology, IS-IS determines if BFD is usable for a given neighbor on that topology. BFD is not usable when BFD is enabled on both sides and the BFD session is down. When there are multiple BFD sessions enabled for different address families, such as IPv4 and IPv6, if BFD is not usable for any address family, then BFD is consider not usable for the entire adjacency on that topology. For example, if both IPv4 and IPv6 BFD are enabled for single topology, if either the IPv4 BFD session is down or IPv6 BFD session is down, the neighbor state will be set to DOWN state. If BFD is not enabled for a given address family, then BFD is considered usable for that address family. For single topology mode, the neighbor state is down when either the IPv4 or IPv6 BFD session is not BFD usable, that is, if BFD is enabled on both sides and the BFD session is DOWN. If BFD is not enabled on either side, BFD will be set to TRUE. For multi-topology mode, IS-IS adjacency will be in UP state as long as any topology is UP . However, the neighbor for the topology where BFD is consider not usable is considered down for that specific topology. For example, if both IPv4 and IPv6 BFD are enabled, and the IPv4 session is DOWN and IPv6 session is UP, then the IS-IS adjacency is still UP. In this case, the IPv4 neighbor is considered DOWN and ipv6 neighbor is considered UP.

Important Notes

The following sections contain important notes about Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Release 3.7S.

End of Sale and End of Life of Cisco Traditional NetFlow

Cisco announces the end-of-sale and end-of-life of the Cisco Traditional NetFlow (TNF) Feature on ASR1000 platform. Cisco will not have any future development, CLI support, TAC support and Documentation on the Traditional NetFlow (TNF) feature beyond the Cisco IOS Software release XE 3.10.

Customers with Cisco Traditional NetFlow (TNF) Feature on Cisco ASR1000 Platform are encouraged to migrate to the Cisco Flexible NetFlow (FNF) Feature on Cisco ASR1000 Platform.
