Product overview

The Cisco® ASR 1000 Series Fixed Ethernet Line Cards (ASR1000-2T+20X1GE and ASR1000-6TGE) are fixed port Ethernet line cards for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. The line cards are capable of 40-Gbps full-duplex traffic forwarding using a fixed-port interface design. The ASR1000-2T+20X1GE has twenty 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (Figure 1). The ASR1000-6TGE has six 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (Figure 2).

The Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and 10-Gbps SFP (XFP) modules allow you to configure the line card for different media types (copper or fiber) and different optical requirements (single- or multimode fiber), as available. The line cards have one power LED, one line-card status LED, and 22 port or
link-status LEDs.

With these line cards, the ASR 1000 Series routers can achieve greater Ethernet density and a lower price per port. However, this fixed configuration means that the Ethernet line cards are not compatible with the Shared Port Adapters (SPAs) that are currently used with the SPA interface processors. Instead, the Ethernet line cards take the slot of the SPA interface processor. Table 1 lists the differences between the fixed Ethernet line cards and the SPA interface processors.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Modular Interface Processor (ASR1000-MIP100) (Figure 3) is a full-duplex 100-Gbps modular Ethernet line card that is capable of hosting up to two Cisco ASR 1000 Series Ethernet Port Adapters (EPAs) (Figures 4 through 8). The EPAs are new interface cards that introduce 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series. Like the fixed Ethernet line cards, the modular interface processor with EPAs offers the same feature parity and functionality as the SPA interface processor and SPA combination. Table 1 shows the features of the three types of interface cards.

Other aspects of the fixed Ethernet line cards and the modular interface processor include:

     Rich Ethernet Layer 2, Layer 3, IP, IPv6, and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packet-processing capabilities, as previously provided on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series platforms

     Rich Quality-of-Service (QoS) functions:

    Ingress and egress QoS, as previously provided on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series platforms

    Egress queuing capability, as previously provided on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series platforms

    High- and low-priority lanes to Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors for high priority, low-latency forwarding

The 18-port 1 Gigabit Ethernet port adapter, 10-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet port adapter, 2-port 40 Gigabit Ethernet port adapter, and 1-port 40 Gigabit Ethernet port adapter are hardware-ready for MACsec.
