1- Does the ASR9K support NATing natively? (Cisco IOS XR IP/MPLS Core Software 3DES)
- Yes. It supports CGN (NAT44, NAT64 etc) with ISM module.
2- Does it support NBAR or any other replacement service to stop P2P and do inspection?
- I beleive NBAR is yet to be supported on ASR9K.
3- QoS is also done on the edge, we do some rate-limiting and shaping, does it support UBRL (user-baed rate-limiting)?
- I will let others to comments on it.
Finally, would you use it to replace your 7200VXR router?
- It depends on multiple factors and your requirement. 7200 is CPU based forwarding platform with limited hardwre off loading (like VPN encryption). So it comes up with its own limitation in terms of process/features enabled and throughput. ASR9K is a one of the best fit for edge node platform positioning. Edge node is known for loading with lot of features with expectation on traffic througput. So if your requirement justifies, you can go for ASR9k.

One can also perform the operation manually, like a "turboboot" for classic XR in this facinity.
