Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors
Product Overview
®
The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Embedded Service Processors (ESPs) are based on the innovative, industry-leading
Cisco QuantumFlow Processor for next-generation forwarding and queuing in silicon. These modules use the first
generation of the hardware and software of the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor architecture.
The 5-, 10-, 10-N- 20- and 40-Gbps Cisco ASR 1000 Series ESPs (part numbers ASR1000-ESP5, ASR1000-ESP10,
ASR1000-ESP10-N, ASR1000-ESP20, and ASR1000-ESP40, respectively) provide five centralized forwardingengine options for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. Additionally, the Cisco ASR 1002
Fixed Router includes a nonmodular, fixed ESP with throughput of 2.5-Gbps and the ASR 1001 comes with a
nonmodular, fixed ESP with throughput of 2.5-Gbps which is upgradable with a software activated performance
upgrade license to 5-Gbps.
The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-N-Gbps ESP (ASR1000-ESP10-N) is the nonencryption version of the Cisco ASR
1000 Series 10-Gbps ESP (ASR1000-ESP10). The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-N-Gbps ESP can only support
®
noncrypto Cisco IOS Software images and will never support encryption capabilities such as IP Security (IPsec). In
future releases, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-N-Gbps ESP may support secured network management features
such as Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and Simple Network Management Protocol
Version 3 (SNMPv3).
The Cisco ASR 1000 Series ESPs are responsible for the data-plane processing tasks, and all network traffic flows
through them. The modules perform all baseline packet routing operations, including MAC classification, Layer 2 and
Layer 3 forwarding, quality-of-service (QoS) classification, policing and shaping, security access control lists (ACLs),
VPNs, load balancing, and NetFlow. They are also responsible for features such as firewalls, intrusion prevention,
Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR), Network Address Translation (NAT), and Cisco IOS Flexible
Pattern Matching.
The Cisco ASR 1002 Fixed Router and Cisco ASR 1001 are the two chassis that support the 2.5-Gbps ESP, which is
integrated in the chassis. The Cisco ASR 1001 is upgradable with a software activated performance upgrade license
to 5-Gbps. There is no need for an additional hardware component to achieve a higher throughput of up to 5-Gbps
on the Cisco ASR 1001. With the enforced performance upgrade license (part number FLS-ASR1001-5G), the
customer can easily upgrade via a license only. For details on the Cisco ASR 1000 IOS XE software image and
licenses including the software activation which is supported at first time customer shipment (FCS) on Cisco ASR
1001, please refer the product bulletin “Cisco ASR 1000 Series Software Activation”. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 5Gbps ESP (ASR1000-ESP5) supports 5-Gbps bandwidth and is supported exclusively in combination with the Cisco
ASR 1002 Router chassis. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-Gbps ESP (ASR1000-ESP10 and ASR1000-ESP10-N;
refer to Figure 1) supports 10-Gbps bandwidth, is supported on Cisco ASR1002, Cisco ASR1004, and Cisco
ASR1006, and can optionally be deployed in customer networks that require 1+1 hardware redundancy with Cisco
ASR1004 and Cisco ASR 1006. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 20-Gbps ESP (ASR1000-ESP20) supports 20-Gbps
bandwidth, is supported on the Cisco ASR 1004 and ASR 1006 Router chassis, and can optionally be deployed in
customer networks that require 1+1 hardware redundancy. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 40-Gbps ESP (ASR1000ESP40) supports 40-Gbps bandwidth, is supported on the Cisco ASR 1006 and ASR 1013 Router chassis, and can
optionally be deployed in customer networks that require 1+1 hardware redundancy.

Data Sheet
Performance highlights of the 20- and 40-Gbps ESPs include hardware-assisted policing; encryption capability of 8
and 11 Gbps, respectively; and special jitter- and latency-minimizing multicast packet replication. The encryption
capability of the 10-Gbps ESP is rated for 4 Gbps, whereas the 5-Gbps ESP as well as the integrated ESP on the
Cisco ASR 1001 chassis is rated for 1.8 Gbps and the 2.5-Gbps ESP integrated on the Cisco ASR1002-F chassis is
rated for 1.0 Gbps. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-N-Gbps ESP has the same performance characteristics as the
Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-Gbps ESP but does not support encryption services.

Applications
The Cisco 2.5-, 5-, 10-, 10-N-, 20-, and 40-Gbps ESPs facilitate the following solutions:
●
Service provider broadband: The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router serves as a broadband aggregation router
that terminates up to 32,000 subscriber sessions and supports features such as Session Border Controller
(SBC) (formally known as Cisco Unified Border Element (SP Edition)) for voice over IP (VoIP) and video (for
™
example, Cisco TelePresence communications systems) services and hardware-assisted per-user firewall
for security.
●
Service provider edge (PE): The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router interfaces with service provider-provisioned
voice and multimedia (for example, Cisco TelePresence communications systems) services directly at the
edge. No overlay network, network appliances, or service blades are required in this solution for lower
operating expenses (OpEx) and flexible deployment models. This router supports protected signaling for both
voice and video services and facilitates 32,000 voice calls concurrent with 40 Gbps of data traffic with
accounting, firewall, and call-quality features enabled.
●
Service provider-managed customer premise equipment (CPE): The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router
serves as a WAN aggregation router with high-density Gigabit Ethernet or WAN link aggregation and 10Gigabit Ethernet uplink capability. Key benefits are Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN functions and line-rate IP
Multicast support for triple-play (data, voice, and video) deployments
●
Enterprise WAN aggregation: The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router at the WAN aggregation headend
facilitates a branch-office architecture that offers excellent investment protection with services and scale.
Solution benefits consist of a multigigabit encryption rate (up to 11-Gbps IP Security [IPsec]), and
optimization of the WAN to route around brownouts in the service provider network to guarantee missioncritical applications. (Please note that this product includes software developed by Cavium Networks.) The
Cisco ASR 1000 Series 10-N-Gbps ESP supports all of the described sevices except for IPsec encryption.
●
Enterprise Internet gateway: The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router as an Internet gateway delivers
multigigabit Cisco IOS Firewall capability in a router without the need for service blades. All firewall
processing is performed in silicon by the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor at up to 2.5, 5, 10, 20, or 40 Gbps. In
addition, the router provides high-speed logging through Sampled NetFlow Version 9 and ongoing forwarding
with baseline and firewall features enabled.

●
Data monitoring (Encapsulated Remote Switched Port Analyzer [ERSPAN]): The Cisco ASR 1000 Series
Router can capture Layer 2 through Layer 7 packet data and route it through the Layer 3 cloud to the data
center. No service blades are required in this solution, which offers full packet visibility compared to IP Traffic
Export.
