The Cisco ASR 1000 Series consists of seven different routers: the Cisco ASR 1001 Router, the Cisco ASR 1002 Fixed Router, the Cisco ASR 1002 Router, the Cisco ASR 1002-X Router, the Cisco ASR 1004 Router, the Cisco ASR 1006 Router, and the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. Powerful and innovative processor: Cisco QuantumFlow processor Cisco ASR 1013 router (24-slot, 13-rack unit [13RU]) and Cisco ASR 1006 router (12-slot, 6RU) for hardware redundancy (2 ESP and 2 routing processor slot) chassis; Cisco ASR 1004 router has 8 slots, 4RU chassis with 1 ESP and 1 routing processor slot; Cisco ASR 1002-X is 3 slot, 2RU chassis, with its own Integrated route processor and ESP, Cisco ASR series shared port adapter interface processor (SIP) cards, and six internal Gigabit Ethernet ports; the Cisco ASR 1002 is also a 3-slot, 2RU chassis with a route processor and the Cisco ASR 1000 Series SIP card and 4 internal Gigabit Ethernet ports with 1 ESP slot; Cisco ASR 1002 fixed 1 slot 2RU Chassis with Route Processor, Cisco ASR 1000 Series SIP Cards, 4 Internal Gigabit Ethernet Ports, and 1 2.5-Gbps ESP Cisco ASR 1001 is a 1RU chassis with its own integrated route processor (non-RP1 and RP2 ).
The Cisco ASR 1006 and ASR 1013 routers support fully redundant route processors that allow full route processor hardware redundancy, in-service software upgrades (ISSU), non-stop forwarding (NSF), and route processor service upgrades.
For a single route processor Cisco ASR 1000 platform (Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1002 Fixed, ASR 1002, ASR1002-X, and ASR 1004), the route processor has dual Cisco IOS software options that allow these routers to adopt Cisco's industry-leading high Unobstructed features, Cisco IOS Software Redundancy, ISSU, and NSF These features require Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 to have 4 GB of DRAM memory The Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP2 supports Cisco IOS Software Redundancy, ISSU, and NSF, which have default 8-GB DRAM memory.
Both the Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 and the Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP2 have a single copper (RJ-45) 10/100/1000 managed Ethernet port.
The Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 can support 2 GB or 4 GB of synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM). Since the card has 2 SDRAM slots, a 2 GB route processor can accommodate two 1-GB dual inline memory modules (DIMMs), while a 4 GB route processor can accommodate two 2-GB
Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP2 Supports 8 GB or 16 GB of SDRAM Since the card has 4 SDRAM slots, an 8 GB route processor can accommodate two 2-GB dual inline memory modules (DIMMs), while 16 GB The routing processor can accommodate two 4-GB DIMMs.
Hard disk drive
The Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP1 and RP2 provide hard drives for code storage, system configuration, and log files. The RP1 provides a 40-GB hard disk drive installed on its own motherboard. RP1 hard drives are field replaceable, but not hot-swappable The Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP2 provides 80-GB hard drives that can be installed, replaced, and hot-swapped.
