The Cisco ASR1000 Route Processor 2 is a second-generation Cisco router that addresses the route-processing requirements of carrier-grade IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packet infrastructures. Unlike its predecessor (ASR1000 Route Processor 1), the RP2 offers memory scalability up to 16-GB DRAM and building integrated timing supply (BITS) output. The RP2 provides advanced routing capabilities such as negotiating and maintaining IP Security (IPsec) authentication, while also monitoring and managing other components in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router. Other features of the ASR1000-RP2 include:
- Provide optional redundant-Processor support and dual Cisco IOS Software support for single-route-Processor solutions for the industry's most compact, fully redundant, high-availability solution, improving network resiliency, management, and costs.
- Provide USB port for 1-GB Compact Flash memory support.
- Offer field-replaceable and hot-swappable capabilities to help ensure minimal service disruption.
- 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.
