Product Description

The ASR1001 Cisco router is compatible with Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.2.0S and later, featuring an inbuilt memory of 4 GB that can be upgraded to either 8 GB or 16 GB across 4 DRAM slots. It offers a storage option of 8 GB eUSB, supports up to 500,000 IPv4 and IPv6 routes, and provides network management through Telnet and SSH Protocol (CLI), Console Port (through the CLI), SNMP, and RFC 2665. The unit operates within a temperature range of 5 °C to 40 °C nominally and -5 °C to 55 °C short-term, with humidity levels from 5% to 85% nominally and 5% to 90% short-term, while also supporting software redundancy for enhanced network reliability.

Product Review

The Cisco ASR1001 offers significant scalability in its operations, supporting up to 500,000 IPv4 and IPv6 routes and a memory upgrade path from 4 GB to 16 GB, catering to growing network demands. However, it operates within a relatively narrow temperature range of 5 °C to 40 °C nominally, potentially limiting its deployment in environments with extreme temperatures. The device ensures network management versatility through Telnet and SSH protocols, SNMP, and a console port, yet its reliance on Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.2.0S or later may restrict compatibility with older software environments.


The Cisco ASR1001 is designed to meet the requirements of small to medium-sized enterprise and service provider networks, offering high performance in a compact form factor. This router is compatible with Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.2.0S and later, ensuring up-to-date features and security. With an inbuilt memory of 4 GB, the device can be upgraded to either 8 GB or 16 GB to accommodate growing network demands, facilitated by its four DRAM slots. Storage needs are addressed with an 8 GB eUSB, providing ample space for system and application files. The ASR1001 supports up to 500,000 IPv4 and IPv6 routes, indicating its capability to handle large-scale network environments efficiently. Network management is versatile, including Telnet and SSH protocol for secure command-line interface access, SNMP for monitoring, and a console port for direct device management. The router's status and activity are easily monitored through various LEDs indicating power, status, activity, standby, hard drive, USB, and link status. - IPv4 Routes: Up to 500,000 - IPv6 Routes: Up to 500,000 - Network Management: Telnet, SSH Protocol (CLI), SNMP Operating in a wide range of temperatures, the ASR1001 is built to function between 5 °C and 40 °C under nominal conditions, and can withstand short-term operational extremes from -5 °C to 55 °C. This resilience extends to storage temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C. Humidity tolerance is similarly broad, with operational relative humidity from 5% to 85% under nominal conditions and up to 90% for short-term scenarios. Storage conditions can handle relative humidity from 5% to 95%, ensuring the router's durability in various environments. The minimum and maximum operating altitudes of -60 m to 4000 m further demonstrate the ASR1001's versatility, capable of functioning in a wide range of atmospheric pressures. Redundancy is a key feature, with software redundancy supported to ensure continuous operation and network reliability. In summary, the Cisco ASR1001 is a scalable and resilient networking solution, designed to support growing and diverse network infrastructures with its extensive routing capabilities, robust network management features, and wide operational tolerances for temperature, humidity, and altitude. Its upgradeable memory and storage options, along with software redundancy, make it a reliable choice for enterprises and service providers looking for a high-performing, yet compact, networking hardware solution.
