• The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processors address the stringent route-processing requirements of carrier-grade IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packet network infrastructures. They are the central control processors that run the network operating system, provide advanced routing capabilities, and also monitor and manage the other components of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router.
  • This ASR1000-RP2 is similar with the ASR1000-RP2=.  The ASR1000-RP2= is a spare one.


Features and benefits

When it comes to connecting enterprise networks to cloud infrastructure, Cisco ASR 1000s are more than mere edge routers.

Application-centric SD-WAN

Security and integrity

Leading encryption performance, layered security services, and a tamper-resistant design help the Cisco ASR 1000 reduce your attack surface and secure edge traffic.

High performance and scale

Always-on architecture

A unique chipset architecture splits control and data-plane operations for improved performance, no matter how complex or crowded your edge. The Cisco ASR 1000 is built to scale.

Unified communications

Advanced silicon

Our latest ASIC technology in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series provides unparalleled edge performance, even when connectivity comes in large bursts.
