BT to Install New Cisco ASR 1000 Aggregation Services Routers

BT Global Services intends to deploy the new Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. BT Global Services has been involved in testing the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers prior to the product's launch in March this year. Financial terms were not disclosed.


The new Cisco Aggregation Services Router (ASR) 1000 is powered by a 40-core "QuantumFlow" processor and designed for massive scalability in packet intelligence in both service provider and enterprise networks. It packs up to 20 million packet per second (PPS) forwarding rate performance in a compact single router platform. As such, the ASR 1000 could be used to consolidate a number of networking appliances, including firewall, IPSec VPNs, deep-packet inspection (DPI) and Session Border Controllers (SBC). Over 42 patents were filed on the Cisco Aggregation Services Router 1000 Series.


Cisco is offering three versions of the platform: a 3-slot chassis with up to 15MPPS performance, an 8-slot version with up to 20MMPS, and a 12-slot version with up to 20MMPS. The two larger systems are 40G ready. Cisco also named several early customers of the ASR 1000, including NTT, Lufthansa Systems, and Wachovia.
