Product Review

The Cisco ASR1000-ESP10 offers a solid throughput of 10 Gbps, suitable for medium-sized network backbones, and is compatible with multiple chassis types (ASR 1002, ASR 1004, and ASR 1006), providing flexibility in deployment. However, its memory configuration, including 512 MB Cisco FP, 2 GB DRAM, and relatively limited 128 MB packet buffer memory, may pose constraints for intensive, memory-heavy operations. Additionally, its operational and storage temperature and humidity ranges ensure reliability under various environmental conditions, but the power consumption of 140 W could be a concern for energy-conscious deployments.


The Cisco ASR1000-ESP10 is a high-performance embedded services processor designed to deliver integrated, high-speed services for enterprise and service provider networks. With a throughput capacity of 10 Gbps, this processor enhances the capabilities of Cisco ASR 1002, ASR 1004, and ASR 1006 chassis, enabling them to handle demanding network requirements efficiently. This model is equipped with 512 MB Cisco Flow Processor memory, ensuring fast and reliable data processing. Additionally, it includes 2 GB DRAM for operational functions, 10 Mb Ternary Content Addressable Memory (TCAM) for high-speed data searches, and 128 MB packet buffer memory that helps in managing data flow and reducing packet loss. The device supports a variety of Management Information Bases (MIBs), complying with RFC 2737, which facilitates efficient network management and monitoring. Network administrators can manage the device using multiple interfaces such as Telnet through the Command Line Interface (CLI), a console port accessible via the CLI, and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) based on RFC 2665. This flexibility ensures that the device can be integrated and managed within diverse network environments. Key hardware specifications include: - Size: With a height of 0.92 inches and a width of 16.7 inches, its compact size makes it suitable for installations where space is at a premium. - Power Consumption: At 140 W, it is designed for energy efficiency, reducing operating costs. - Environmental Tolerance: The device operates reliably within a wide range of temperatures (5 °C to 40 °C) and altitudes (-60 m to 4000 m), ensuring consistent performance under various environmental conditions. Additional environmental specifications highlight its durability and reliability: - Operating Relative Humidity: Ranges from 5% (non-condensing) to 85% (non-condensing), allowing the device to function in a broad spectrum of humidity levels. - Storage Conditions: It can be stored in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C and in relative humidity levels from 5% to 95%, ensuring long-term durability. This processor not only provides the necessary power and memory to support intensive data processing tasks but also comes with the adaptability to meet the needs of complex network infrastructures. Its comprehensive feature set makes it an essential component for networks requiring high throughput, extensive memory capacity, and reliable management options. The Cisco ASR1000-ESP10 represents a strategic investment for organizations looking to scale their network infrastructure while maintaining high levels of data integrity and security.
