Part of the Cisco® ASR 9000 Series, the Cisco ASR 9001 Router (Figure 1) is a compact high-capacity Provider Edge (PE) router that delivers 120 Gbps of nonblocking, full-duplex fabric capacity in a two-rack-unit (2RU) form factor. Based on the same Cisco IOS® XR software image as the other routers in the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, the Cisco ASR 9001 Router delivers the features and services found on the ASR 9000 Series platforms, allowing customers to standardize on the same Cisco IOS XR image. The Cisco ASR 9001 Router has an Integrated Route Switch Processor (RSP) and two modular bays that support 1 GE, 10 GE, and 40 GE Modular Port Adapters (MPAs). The base chassis has four integrated 10 GE Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) ports, a GPS input for stratum-1 clocking, Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS) ports, and management ports.

Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers deliver exceptional scale, service flexibility, and high availability to Carrier Ethernet transport networks. The routers are powered by Cisco IOS XR Software, an innovative self-healing, distributed operating system designed for always-on operation. This is the same operating system that powers industry-leading routers such as the Cisco CRS Carrier Routing System, bringing the same reliability, scalability, performance, and comprehensive features that have made the Cisco CRS the dominant entity in the service provider core. Cisco IOS XR Software also allows for an end-to-end IP/MPLS solution to service provider requirements based on the same software, thereby reducing the operational complexity of managing multiple operating systems. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series further enhances the IP Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) Carrier Ethernet design for converged, resilient, intelligent, and scalable transport of consumer, business, wholesale, and mobile services.

Cisco ASR 9000 Series Carrier Ethernet applications include business services such as Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN (L2VPN and L3VPN), IPTV, Content Delivey Networks (CDNs), mobile backhaul transport networks, and broadband network gateway (BNG). Features supported include Ethernet Services; L2VPN; IPv4, IPv6, and L3VPN; Layer 2 and Layer 3 multicast; IP over dense wavelength-division multiplexing (IPoDWDM), Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE), Ethernet operations, administration, and maintenance (EOAM) and MPLS OAM, Layer 2 and Layer 3 access control lists (ACLs), hierarchical quality of service (HQoS), MPLS Traffic Engineering Fast Reroute (MPLS TE-FRR), Multichassis Link Aggregation (MC-LAG), Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) and Cisco Nonstop Forwarding (NSF) and Nonstop Routing (NSR).

Note:    Site to Site IPSec VPN is not currently supported on the ASR 9001 platform.

The integrated RSP has 8 GB RAM and is capable of holding serveral millions of routes, which makes the Cisco ASR 9001 Router useful as a dedicated route-reflector appliance.
