Hardware Features of the Cisco ASR 1001-X Router

The Cisco ASR 1001-X Router supports:

  • A non-modular and fixed Embedded Services Processor (ESP) with a default throughput of 2.5 Gbps that is upgradable with a software-activated performance license of 5 Gbps, 10 Gbps, or 20 Gbps.
  • Up to 16 GB (8 GB in the base configuration) of DDR3 error-correcting code-protected field- replaceable memory, with single-bit error correction and multi-bit error detection.
  • Up to 8 Gbps security and crypto processing through a dedicated security processor.
  • One copper Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbps network management port.
  • RJ-45 console ports and auxiliary ports, and a mini USB console port.
  • Two USB 2.0 ports for USB flash sticks or USB secure tokens (secure key distribution).
  • An embedded USB (eUSB) flash module that supports 8 GB of nonvolatile Flash storage.
  • Six built-in 1 GE SFP-only interfaces (do not support SFP+), and two built-in 10 GE SFP+ interfaces (support only 10-GE rate) that support SyncE.
  • Stratum 3E network clocking per GR-1244-CORE, using 1588, 10 GE, GE, SPA, or Network Interface Module (NIM) interfaces as timing sources.
  • One half-height SPA bay.
  • Command-line interface (CLI), alarm, network management, logging, statistics aggregation, and on-board failure logging (OBFL).
  • Software redundancy using Dual IOS, similar to all the other non-hardware redundant routers from the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router family.
  • LED indicators for Ethernet and console status, as well as visual system state indications.
  • Environmental chassis management.
  • Up to 20 Gbps sustained forwarding data traffic through the chassis.
  • 10 MB ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM).
  • One Network Interface Module (NIM) bay.
