Recommendation. Cisco ASR1001 or ASR1002 to replace

robvelc2014

We are currently using 2 Cisco 7201 w/ NPE-G2 pushing about 1300-1400 PPPoE sessions via L2TP tunnel on each.  Each device does about 850Mb/s throughput.   In total we have around 2700 PPPoE sessions with a total of around 2Gb/s bandwidth.  We provide ADSL service.

 

We are in the market for another Cisco but was wondering what the Cisco ASR1001 or Cisco ASR1002 would be able to handle ?  Also we want to replace our aging Foundry Bigiron 4000 that has 2 BGP sessions without full views.  

 

We're looking to consolidate everything into a Cisco ASR device possibly to save space and allow growth.  when it comes to the point that we need to push the BGP to a different device, that won't be a problem.  We also require the device to allow for 10Ge connectivity that we will be expanding to in the close future.

 

This would allow us to condense our 7U space into 1 or 2U space with much more horse power. 

 

Thanks for your time.

You can replace all of your devices with a couple of ASR-1002X routers. Depending on the ESP, you can get up to 36Gig of throughput. This device comes with 6 build in 1Gig SFP ports and you can also get a couple of 1-port 10Gig modules. You can run BGP and any other routing protocols.

For now we want to replace our 7201 devices.  Would 1 ASR1002-X be able to handle our existing 2700 pppoe sessions and allow for further growth with the 5Gbps ESP to start?  

 

How many sessions (pppoe) would the 5Gbps ESP be able to handle in real life? 

 

I don't think we can budget 2 ASR1002 for time being.  We can budget one of them.  So we were hoping to be able to do BGP plus our PPPOE through the one ASR1002-X.  Or perhaps there is a lower cost cisco that can do BGP without full view?

I agree with Reza.  ASR1002-X has an "upgradeable" ESP.  All you need to apply the e-license and the bandwidth support can go up/down.
