Cisco ASR 1002-X Basics

Cisco ASR 1002-X Basics

Lets talk about the basics of Cisco ASR 1002-X Router now, Similar with the ASR 1001-X Router but the difference is the inbuilt capacity in the ASR 1002-X Routers differ from ASR 1001-X Routers.

Further we can also discuss the difference between the route processors and Embedded processors and the use of these processors in ASR Routers.

ASR routers are generally used where we have the demand of the high bandwidth, likewise we have the customer and the capacity requirement for the WAN network is more and equal to 1 Gbps and in future the capacity increase to 2,5 or 10 Gbps, then can use ASR routers.

Some of the requirement where we are providing solution in the DC and we need to provide the High end routers as CE routers, then we can have the ASR Routers.

Note: - We can upgrade the back-plane capacity of the ASR routers by putting the license of Embedded processor like ESP-5, ESP-10, ESP-20. So we can upgrade the Back-plane capacity up-to 20 Gbps in ASR Routers.

Further if you guys have any queries about the Cisco ASR Routers in terms of Hardware or the functionality of the routers, we feel free to contact us so that we can explain the information related to the Cisco ASR routers. 

Lets talk about the routers in details as follows:- 

Cisco ASR 1000 series Aggregation services Routers mixture more than one WAN connections and community offerings, which include encryption and traffic management, and forward them across WAN connections at line speeds from 2.5 to 2 hundred Gbps. The routers include each hardware and software program redundancy in an enterprise-leading excessive-availability design.

The today's addition to the Cisco ASR circle of relatives is the Cisco ASR 1001-X Router, a single-rack-unit (RU) router helping 2.5- to twenty-Gbps forwarding ability. Cisco ASR 1001-X Router speeds may be “became up” incrementally to as an awful lot as 20 Gbps with a simple throughput improve license, rather than having to buy additional hardware blades or new routers.

The Cisco ASR a thousand series helps Cisco IOS XE software program, a modular operating system with modular packaging, feature speed, and effective resiliency. The Cisco ASR one thousand collection Embedded offerings Processors (ESPs), that are based on Cisco Quantum float Processor technology, boost up many superior features which includes crypto-based totally access protection; community deal with Translation (NAT), thread protection with Cisco area-primarily based Firewall (ZBFW), deep packet inspection (DPI), Cisco Unified Border element (dice), and a numerous set of information middle interconnect (DCI) capabilities. those offerings are implemented in Cisco IOS XE software program without the want for extra hardware help.

Cisco ASR 1000 Routers sit at the edge of your enterprise data center or large office connecting to the WAN, as well as in service provider points of presence (POPs). The Cisco ASR 1000 Series will benefit the following types of customers:

Enterprises experiencing explosive network traffic as mobility, cloud networking, and video and collaboration usage ramp up. Cisco ASRs consolidate these various traffic streams and apply traffic management and redundancy properties to them to maintain consistent performance among enterprise sites and cloud locations.

Network service providers needing to deliver high-performance services, such as DCI and branch-office server aggregation, to business customers. Service providers can also use the multiservice routers to deploy hosted and managed services to business and multimedia services to residential customers.
