Cisco® ASR 1000 routers have the power to aggregate all your traffic streams from branch offices and other sites while running the intelligent services that help you control, filter, and secure traffic. You get consistent application performance among enterprise sites and cloud locations. All on a compact, universal hardware platform. Consistent software operates across the whole product family, so you can deploy and manage all your ASRs in the same way.

  • ASR 1001

    Cisco ASR 1000 Series QoS advanced features include:

    ● Fully dedicated and different silicon for both scheduling (Cisco QFP Traffic Manager) and packet processing (Cisco QFP Engine)

    ● Multiple and flexible levels of Hierarchical Scheduling and Queuing

    ● Three-parameter scheduling with high-priority traffic protection under very high levels of over-subscription

    ● Deep Packet Inspection features such as Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR) at a very high throughput, implicit in the Cisco QFP architecture

    ● QoS integration with the Cisco Session Border Controller (SBC), IP Security (IPsec), IP Multicast, NetFlow, Compressed Real Time Protocol ( cRTP), etc. at a very high throughput and scalability

    ● Flexible software architecture that allows very high feature velocity and versatility


    Cisco ASR 1000 Series QoS Hardware Architecture

    Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers offer a centralized architecture when it comes to the forwarding plane. The 5- and 10-Gbps ASR 1000 Series Embedded Services Processors (ESP5 and ESP10, respectively) represent the forwarding plane in this case. All network traffic flows through ESP10, making it the main engine for all QoS features. The main component of both ESPs is the Cisco QFP and its two pieces of silicon, the Cisco QFP Engine and Cisco QFP Traffic Manager. Cisco QFP Engine is in charge Modular QoS CLI (MQC) classification, marking, Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED), policing, etc. Cisco QFP Traffic Manager handles shaping, priority, and Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ) scheduling, etc. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series SPA Interface Processor 10 (SIP10) is also capable of ingress classification, buffering, and scheduling with a non-MQC configuration. For more information on these components please visit

    Highlights of QoS features in the ESP10 and ESP5 follow:

    ● 128,000 hardware queues

    ● Multiple levels of hierarchies

    ● Two levels of high-priority traffic per policy

    QoS performance with the ESP10 depends upon the QoS configuration and the combination with other features. Nevertheless, the performance with a very complex QoS configuration, several thousand subinterfaces, IPv6 Multicast, and access control lists (ACLs) is several million packets per second The huge advantage with the Cisco ASR 1000 Series is the fact that Cisco QFP Traffic Manager is not affected by any of the features that Cisco QFP Engine needs to perform. So QoS shaping and Low Latency Queuing (LLQ) configurations has minimum impact performance in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

    The best approach to understand Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router QoS is by following the flow of the packets from the ingress to the egress (Figure 1). Note that the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router platform is designed to support high levels of oversubscription, and in the figure each of the steps through the box is a possible congestion point. The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router QoS always tries to transmit high-priority traffic before any other type of traffic. This feature is especially important when customers oversubscribe the system bandwidth with high- and low-priority traffic. Following is the flow of the packet in a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router from a QoS congestion point of view:

    1. SIP10 and ESP10 ingress classification and scheduling
    1.1. SIP10 ingress classification and scheduling
    1.2. ESP10 interconnect scheduling

    2. ESP10 egress QoS

    3. SIP10 buffering
