Product Review

The Cisco ASR1006-X offers a flexible solution for high-density packet routing with its 8 Shared Port Adapter (SPA) slots and support for up to 200 Gbps of ESP bandwidth, catering to demanding network environments. However, its substantial size and weight (36.5 lbs) might pose challenges for space-constrained installations. Additionally, the requirement for Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.16.0 or later for operation ensures up-to-date features but necessitates careful version management and compatibility checks.


The Cisco ASR1006-X is a high-performance router designed for high-end enterprise and service provider environments requiring high throughput and encryption capabilities. This device is part of the Cisco ASR 1000 series, known for its scalability and resilience. The ASR1006-X model comes with a comprehensive set of specifications tailored to support demanding network requirements. This router features eight slots for Shared Port Adapters (SPAs), providing flexibility in connectivity options. With two slots dedicated to Route Processors and another two for SIPs or Ethernet Line Cards, the ASR1006-X ensures efficient processing and data throughput capabilities. The hardware supports redundancy, ensuring continuous operation and minimum downtime, a critical requirement for mission-critical applications. The dimensions of the ASR1006-X are 10.47 inches in height, 17.2 inches in width, and 18.15 inches in depth, with a weight of 36.5 lbs. This size allows for rack mounting in standard 19-inch racks, although wall mounting is not supported. The router's design facilitates front-to-back airflow, aiding in maintaining optimal operating temperatures from 0 °C to 40 °C and a relative humidity range from 10% to 85%. Key to the ASR1006-X's performance is its ESP bandwidth, ranging from 40 to 200 Gbps. This bandwidth capability enables the router to handle heavy data loads efficiently. Compatible SIPs and Ethernet Line Cards include the Cisco ASR 1000 Series 40 Gbps SIP Carrier Card, Cisco ASR1000 Series MIP 100 Gbps Carrier Card, and ASR 1000 Fixed Ethernet Line Card, which enhance the router's versatility and performance. Encryption is a critical aspect of modern networking hardware, and the ASR1006-X incorporates embedded hardware-based encryption. Depending on the ESP, it supports up to 11 Gbps or 29 Gbps crypto support throughput, ensuring secure data transmission across networks. Operating the ASR1006-X requires Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.16.0 or later, ensuring access to the latest features and security updates. The router also features an external USB flash memory of 1 GB for additional storage. Power efficiency is addressed with a maximum power consumption of 250 WAC / 242 WDC, and the router can operate on a wide range of power inputs from 85 to 264 VAC and -40 to -72 VDC. This versatility ensures that the ASR1006-X can be deployed in various environments without concerns over power compatibility.
  • Embedded Hardware-Based Encryption: supports up to 29 Gbps crypto support throughput.
  • Power Consumption: 250 WAC / 242 WDC (Maximum) for efficient operation.
  • Operating Conditions: designed to operate between 0 °C and 40 °C with a humidity range of 10% to 85%.
Finally, the ASR1006-X can operate at altitudes from -500 to 10,000 feet and be stored in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C, ensuring reliability in a wide range of geographical locations and conditions. This combination of features makes the Cisco ASR1006-X a suitable choice for organizations looking for a scalable, secure, and high-performance networking solution.
