Product Overview for the Cisco ASR1000-RP2 Fast Ethernet Router

The Cisco ASR1000 Series routers are renowned for their high-performance capabilities and are widely utilized in enterprise networks, service provider environments, and data centers. These router processors are designed to address the increasing demands of modern networking, offering advanced features for secure and efficient data transmission. The ASR1000 Series is renowned for its scalability, flexibility, and high performance, making it an ideal choice for various networking scenarios. From enterprise networks to service provider environments, the ASR1000 Series has proven its mettle in handling diverse requirements.

The Heart of High-Speed Connectivity

The ASR1000-RP2 serves as the central processing unit that drives the ASR1000 Series routers. Its primary function is to manage and control the routing functions, ensuring efficient data transmission across the network.

100 Megabits Fast Ethernet

At the core of the ASR1000-RP2 is its ability to handle 100 Megabits Fast Ethernet. This level of speed is crucial for modern networks, especially in scenarios where large volumes of data need to be transmitted swiftly. Whether it's supporting high-bandwidth applications or facilitating rapid data transfers, the ASR1000-RP2's 100 Megabits Fast Ethernet capability ensures a seamless user experience.

Wide Area Network (WAN) Connectivity

The ASR1000-RP2 is specifically designed for Wide Area Network (WAN) deployments. Wide Area Networks cover large geographical areas, connecting multiple local area networks (LANs) across cities, countries, or even continents. The ASR1000-RP2's robust design and high-speed capabilities make it well-suited for handling the challenges posed by WAN environments, ensuring reliable and efficient connectivity.

Twisted Pair 10/100/1000Base-T

The ASR1000-RP2 supports twisted pair technology, offering versatile compatibility with different Ethernet standards. The 10/100/1000Base-T support means that the router processor can seamlessly operate with Ethernet networks running at 10, 100, or 1000 Megabits per second. This adaptability is crucial in heterogeneous network environments where various Ethernet speeds coexist.

Network Segmentation and Access Control

Network segmentation and access control are important security features that can be implemented on the Cisco ASR1000 Series Route Processor 2 (RP2) to help protect the network from unauthorized access and potential security threats.

One way to achieve network segmentation on the RP2 is through the use of Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances. VRFs allow for the creation of multiple virtual routers within the RP2, each with its routing table and interfaces. This allows for the separation of different types of traffic, such as guest and corporate traffic, and helps to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive network resources.

Another way to achieve network segmentation is through the use of access control lists (ACLs). ACLs can be applied to interfaces on the RP2 to control the flow of traffic based on predefined rules. For example, an ACL can be used to block traffic from a specific IP address or to allow traffic only from certain IP addresses.

In addition to network segmentation, the RP2 also supports various access control features such as:

  • Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA)
  • Secure Shell (SSH)
  • Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Now that we've explored the technical specifications of the ASR1000-RP2, let's delve into its real-world applications across various industries.

Enterprise Networks

In enterprise environments, where reliability and high-speed connectivity are paramount, the ASR1000-RP2 plays a crucial role. It can efficiently handle the data traffic generated by a multitude of devices within the organization, ensuring seamless communication and collaboration. The Gigabit Ethernet support is particularly beneficial for enterprises running data-intensive applications and services.

Service Provider Networks

Service providers operate in dynamic and demanding environments where network performance directly impacts customer satisfaction. The ASR1000-RP2's ability to support 100 Megabits Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet makes it an ideal choice for service provider networks. It can handle the diverse connectivity requirements of both residential and business customers, offering a reliable backbone for delivering internet, voice, and video services.

Telecommunication Networks

In the realm of telecommunication, where fast and reliable data transmission is non-negotiable, the ASR1000-RP2 shines. Whether supporting voice-over-IP (VoIP) services, video conferencing, or other real-time applications, the router processor ensures low latency and high throughput. Its compatibility with various Ethernet standards makes it adaptable to the evolving landscape of telecommunication networks.

Data Centers

Data centers, the nerve centers of modern IT infrastructure, demand routers that can handle massive data flows efficiently. The ASR1000-RP2's Gigabit Ethernet capabilities make it well-suited for connecting servers, storage systems, and other components within a data center. Its high-speed connectivity ensures that data can move swiftly between different parts of the data center, optimizing overall performance.

Performance and Scalability

The Cisco ASR1000 Series Route Processor 2 (RP2) is designed for high performance and scalability in enterprise and service provider networks.

In terms of performance, the RP2 is equipped with a powerful 8GB DRAM, which allows it to handle a large number of routing table entries and support high-speed data processing. It also supports advanced hardware-based forwarding and queuing mechanisms that help to ensure low latency and high throughput for network traffic.

In terms of scalability, the RP2 supports a wide range of interfaces and modules that can be used to expand the capabilities of the router as the network grows. For example, the RP2 can be paired with various line cards such as the ASR1000-ESP10, which is an embedded services processor that provides advanced security and network services capabilities. Additionally, the RP2 also supports various routing protocols such as OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and more.

The RP2 also supports various features that help to ensure high availability and redundancy in the network, such as:

  • Hot-standby Router Protocol (HSRP)
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
  • Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP)
  • Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF)
  • Stateful Switchover (SSO)
