Product Overview 

Cisco is redefining state-of-the-art edge router technology with the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. These routers are an arrangement of mid-range switches that build up an exciting cost-to-execution class offering. The deployment of this series benefits both specialist co-ops and enterprise IT ventures. 

For service providers, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers facilitate flexible, efficient, and cost-effective delivery of complex consumer and business services. For enterprises, these routers deliver a highly reliable, high-performance WAN edge solution where information, communication, collaboration, and commerce converge. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers accelerate services by offering outstanding performance and resiliency with optimized, intelligent services. Other key features of this router series include: 

  • Newly established benchmark for price-to-performance offerings in the enterprise advanced routing, service provider edge, and broadband aggregation segments 
  • Facilitates significant network architectural innovations in areas such as secure WAN aggregation, managed customer premises equipment (CPE) services, and service provider edge services 
  • Decreases working costs (OpEx) and capital consumptions (CapEx) by encouraging overseen or facilitated benefits with indistinguishable models and working conditions

  • ASR 1001 Router 
  • ASR 1002 Fixed Router 
  • ASR 1002 Router  
  • ASR 1002-X Router  
  • ASR 1004 Router
  • ASR 1006 Router
  • ASR 1013 Router 

All adaptations utilize the imaginative and ground-breaking Cisco QuantumFlow Processor, which provides an excellent improvement in execution and versatility for system processors. 

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series conveys various administrations inserted into the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor at wire speeds from 2.5 to 200 Gbps. The administrations upheld on the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor incorporate security administrations (for example, encryption and firewall), nature of administration (QoS), Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR), Cisco IOS® Flexible Packet Matching (FPM), broadband conglomeration, and the Cisco Unified Border Element (SP Edition). 

With the division of the control and information planes within the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router design, programming repetition is provided. This includes the following adaptations: the Cisco ASR 1001, ASR 1002 Fixed, ASR 1002, ASR 1002-X, and ASR 1004 Routers as well as equipment excess (on the Cisco ASR 1006 and ASR 1013 Routers). It doesn't end there, the measured Cisco IOS XE Software that is presented with the Cisco ASR 1000 Series encourages In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU). 

Cisco introduces the high-end router Cisco ASR 1001-X at the edge of Customer enterprise networking (where both connectivity and the traffic flow is high). There are numerous routers per each enterprise network's capacity, but Cisco ASR 1001-X is the first choice for enterprise network connectivity to the service provider via MPLS.
