Hardware Additions

Cisco ASR 1001 Router

The Cisco ASR 1001 Router is a new, small- footprint edge routing solution (1RU) that delivers up to 5-Gbps performance throughput with services turned on, enabling deployment agility in high-end enterprise branch, WAN edge, and managed services environments.

The Cisco ASR 1001 Router introduces the concept of integrated daughter cards (IDCs). Six models are available:

  • ASR1001: without an IDC
  • ASR1001-2XOC3POS: with an IDC that provides two OC-3 Packet-over-SONET/SDH (PoS) ports
  • ASR1001-4XT3: with an IDC that provides four T3 ports
  • ASR1001-4X1GE : with four 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • ASR1001-HDD (160 GB): with a 160-GB hard disk drive
  • ASR1001-8XCHT1E1 : with eight channelized T1/E1 ports

The IDCs are not field-upgradable.

The Cisco ASR 1001 Router also supports software activation for some licenses, including the upgrade from 2.5-Gbps to 5-Gbps performance.

Cisco ASR 1013 Router

The Cisco ASR 1013 Router with the 40-Gbps embedded services processor (ESP) and 40-Gbps SPA interface processor (SIP) provides:

  • Twice the bandwidth and capacity of earlier Cisco ASR 1000 Series models
  • A modular and highly services-integrated routing platform
  • A highly scalable and cost-effective solution for the centralized 40-Gbps routing space

Primary Innovations

  • Provides a platform for cloud computing to conserve resources and help ensure optimal performance
  • Extends high availability to the edge by helping to enable in-service software upgrades

  • Enhances operating efficiencies (compact form factor reduces power consumption, space, and sparing requirements)

Primary Services

  • Enterprise
    • Multiservice secure WAN aggregation, private WAN, and Internet gateway
    • Integrated threat defense
    • Application optimization
    • Ethernet WAN
  • Service Provider
    • Multi-service edge
    • Session border controller
    • Edge broadband
    • High-end route reflector
    • Managed customer premises equipment (CPE)
