Cisco ASR1000-RP2 ASR 1000 Series ASR1000 Series Route Processor 2
The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors address the stringent route-processing requirements of carrier-grade IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packet network infrastructures. They are the central control processors that run the network operating system, provide advanced routing capabilities, and also monitor and manage the other components of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router.
Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors fall into two main categories:
Modular Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors for modular chassis, including the ASR 1004, ASR 1006, ASR 1006-X, ASR 1009-X and ASR 1013 models. These are the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1 (RP1; part number ASR1000-RP1), Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 2 (RP2; part number ASR1000-RP2), and Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 3 (RP3; part number ASR1000-RP3)
Cisco ASR1000-RP2 ASR 1000 Processor Features and Benefits
Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors offer the following embedded features:
Full range of industry-leading Cisco IOS XE Software features and services
Optional redundant-processor and dual Cisco IOS XE Software support for single-route-processor solutions to improve network resiliency
USB ports for 1-GB compact flash memory support
Built-in embedded flash memory (eUSB or eMMC) support:
◦ 1 GB on RP1; 8 GB on the built-in RP1 on the ASR 1002 router partitioned: 1 GB for bootflash; 7 GB for mass storage
◦ 2 GB on RP2; 8 GB on RP3
◦ 8 GB on the built-in route processor on the Cisco ASR 1001, 1001-X and 1002-X, partitioned: 1 GB for bootflash; 7 GB for mass storage
Field-replaceable and hot-swappable capabilities with modular Cisco ASR1000-RP2 ASR 1000 Processor for minimal service disruption
Stratum-3 clock circuitry, building integrated timing supply (BITS) input and output (BITS output available on ASR1000-RP2 and on the chassis of ASR1002-X that has a built-in RP)
Memory scalability up to 4 GB DRAM on the RP1; up to 16 GB DRAM on the RP2, ASR 1001, ASR 1001-X, ASR 1001-HX, ASR 1002-X, and ASR 1002-HX; up to 64 GB DRAM on the RP3
Many additional features are performed in line with routing, including:
Building and distributing forwarding information to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processor (ESP)
Implementing session border controller (SBC) setup and teardown and applying per-session policies for voice and video streams
Offering a portal for stateful firewall policy configuration and distribution to the ESP forwarding engine
Negotiating and maintaining IP Security (IPsec) authentication, encryption methods, and encryption keys (Internet Key Exchange [IKE])
As the management processor for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, the RPs automatically perform the following system management functions:
Load the operating system software images to all installed line cards upon powering up or through operator commands
Synchronize the dynamic state conditions for the redundant Cisco IOS XE Software, the route processor, and ESP components
Perform high-availability failover for redundant solutions
Provide out-of-band system console and auxiliary ports, USB, and Ethernet ports for router configuration and maintenance
Allow direct system access through the operating-system kernel if catastrophic Cisco IOS Software failure occurs
Monitor and manage the power and temperature of system components such as line cards, power supplies, and fans
