I've never worked with an ASR901 before and now I'm designing an MPLS network but with several budget constraints.
Basically what I need is 1 customer edge port and 2 MPLS ports to connect to an MPLS cloud. I would normally use an ME3600X for this, but, since the ASR901 is running the same software and also has enough ports available for lets say half the price, I was wondering if this would suffice too.
Can anyone tell me the noticable differences between those platforms?
The network is not TDM related or whatever. So basically I was just looking at the Ethernet version of this router (A901-6CZ-F-A).
The IOS for ME3600X starting 15.2-2S and above appears to have alot of overlapping features with the IOS on ASR901 series although I'm sure there are quite a few differences left still and the Feature Navigator will substantiate this.
Are you trying to terminate pseudowires on service instances?
ISO images are as close as we can get to the old school classic IOS images from back in they day.
Doing upgrades by putting a new image on the flash, changing the boot pointer and reload was and is still the walhalla of Cisco based devices.
