Features and benefits

Multitenancy in any cloud

The CSR 1000V Series serves as a secure single-tenant router in a multitenant, shared-resource public cloud environment. It provides end-to-end managed connectivity.

Infrastructure agnostic

Gain complete independence, regardless of the infrastructure that your enterprise or data center network uses. The CSR 1000V Series works with VMware ESXi, Red Hat KVM, Citrix Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V and Azure, and Amazon Web Services.

Reduced security risk

Deploy a complete, hypervisor-isolated, multiservice secure instance for each tenant. Secure features include IPsec VPNs and built-in zone-based firewalls, among others.

Network scalability

Scale beyond the limitations of IEEE 802.1q VLAN tagging by building a VXLAN network or extending Layer 3 routing deeper into the cloud environment.

Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA)

Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) is the industry’s first network with the ability to find threats in encrypted traffic. ETA is now available on more platforms, including ASR 1000, ISR 1000, ISR 4000, and CSR 1000v Series routers.
