  • Details

    The Cisco® ASR 9900 Route Processor - Figure 1 - is the first generation of system processors available for the Cisco ASR 9912 Router and ASR 9922 Router chassis. The Cisco ASR 9900 Route Processor is designed with a system architecture to accommodate convergence of Layer 2 and Layer 3 services as required by today’s service providers in wireline, data center interconnect (DCI), and Radio Access Network (RAN) aggregation applications.

    The Cisco ASR 9900 Route Processor brings the time-tested and robust carrier-class capabilities of Cisco IOS® XR Software to the Carrier Ethernet edge. The operating system supports true software process modularity. The capabilities of Cisco IOS XR Software allow each process to run in separate protected memory, including each routing protocol along with multiple instances of control, data, and management planes supported. The software also supports distributed route processing.

    Route Processor Types

    The Cisco ASR 9900 Route Processor is available in service-edge-optimized and packet-transport-optimized models. The service-edge-optimized version offers a higher amount of memory essential for large-scale comprehensive service deployment. Both versions of the route processor support service-optimized as well as transport-optimized line cards. Different line cards can be mixed on the same chassis, providing maximum design flexibility.

    Features and benefits of the Cisco ASR 9900 Route Processor are listed in Table 1.

    The Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers delivers superior scale, service flexibility, and high availability into access and aggregation networks. It is powered by Cisco IOS XR Software - an innovative self-healing, distributed operating system designed for always-on operation. Cisco IOS XR Software supports software maintenance update (SMU) capability which allows bug fixing or even small feature releasing without interrupting existing services. Software also supports Field Programmable Device (FPD) upgrades which can be used to update field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), (ROM monitor) ROMmon, etc., while systems are running.

    Cisco ASR 9000 Series Carrier Ethernet applications include business services such as Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) and Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN), Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), and mobile backhaul transport networks. Features supported include Ethernet Services; L2VPN; IPv4, IPv6, and L3VPN; Layer 2 and Layer 3 Multicast; IP over dense wavelength-division multiplexing (IPoDWDM); SyncE; EOAM and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) OAM; Layer 2 and Layer 3 access control lists (ACLs); H-QoS; MPLS Traffic Engineering Fast Reroute (MPLS TE-FRR); Multichassis Link Aggregation (MC-LAG); Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB); Cisco Nonstop Forwarding (NSF) and Nonstop Routing (NSR); Point-to-Multipoint Traffic Engineering (P2MP-TE); Lawful Intercept; Smart Call Home (SCH); and Multi Gigabit Service Control (MGSCP).

    The Cisco ASR 9000 Series Multiservice Edge (MSE) and Ethernet MSE (E-MSE) capabilities allow enterprises to offer powerful business VPN services with strong service-level agreement (SLA) enforcement. Such services typically require simultaneous scale increases across multiple dimensions; for example, the number of Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF) interfaces, IPv4 and IPv6 route scaling, BFD sessions, and instances of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Cisco NSR interfaces. A Cisco ASR 9900 system configuration requiring high multiple dimensional scale requires the service-edge optimized A9K-RP-SE model to support the increased system scale.

    Timing synchronization is an integral part of traditional circuit-based networks, so the availability of equivalent functionality in next-generation Ethernet-based architectures has quickly become a critical requirement. The Cisco ASR 9900 chassis have standard compliant PTPv2, GPS, DTI, and BITS connections on the route processor, and SyncE support natively on the line cards, giving mobile providers ample options for time and frequency synchronization. Additionally, the Cisco ASR 9900 Route Processor supplies centralized clocking functions throughout the system, providing consolidated timing distribution and recovery to and from the line cards.
