We needed a platform that could support both internet router functionality, from as low as 1Gbps throughput, to as high as 10Gbps. We also needed a platform that could support OTV (Overlay Transport Virtualization). At the time that we purchased these devices, the only other 2 types of platforms that supported OTV were the Nexus 7K (reaching EoL and expensive) and the Catalyst 8500-series, which was brand new.

The Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000) is our primary piece of hardware that we use for different customers. It provides great performance and the reliability of Cisco is great! As we were a starting company we weren't looking for anything too complex configuration wise but surprisingly Cisco did a really great job on keeping it simple but with a huge effect on our service delivery.

We primarily use the Cisco ASR 1001-X Router is a small form factor, high horsepower platform for distribution of routing information within our network. It's extremely feature-rich for its size and offers a good 'pay as you grow' model of scalability as our usage of this model expands throughout our network.

We have several ASR routers currently in our organization. We are using these routers not only as our internet routers, but also as our WAN routers in several of our branch offices. We rely heavily on these routers to perform well for our organization.

We use the ASR 1000 extensively in our environment and it is the primary router that we deploy and support for our networks and our customers. They're modular, allowing us to use different features or modules but use the same chassis for different purposes. Its modular nature allows us to install these and if needed install another module or license an additional feature that keeps maintenance windows short and limits the need for redesigns.

We deploy Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000) on networks that require advanced protocols such as BGP and OSPF. They're usually set up as border gateway routers and they peer with other network providers, provide communications utilizing Multiprotocol Label Switching, QoS and VPN services for road warriors, and IPSec tunnels connecting multiple separate locations.

The equipment is implemented between our two Data Centers (Main and Backup) and allows us to establish a tunnel layer 2 on layer 3, which has allowed us to improve response times for contingency issues, by being able to raise servers in our alternate site, as if they were in the main.

We were using it firmwide to protect our network hardware from intruders as well as malware to move our data past our internal WAN perimeter. We have very heavy traffic and were searching for a solution to help us manage this data without interruption in our always-on network.

The Cisco ASR 1000 series router comes in multiple formats, each tailored to some specific uses. They are physically different in size and how much space they take up, which results in computing power differences as well as what purpose they are best suited for. Given that information, we widely use the ASR1002 and ASR1006 within our network and organization. Both platforms use the same OS, IOS-XE.

We use the ASR routers at our power plant locations as the core of the WAN network running multiple VRF instances. The VRF instances provide separation of corporate and plant controls traffic running over our private 10G WAN infrastructure.

We use ASR1000 series in our testing department for setting up new visualization tools and streaming servers. It also supports the redundant Internet links developed for UAT and SIT for critical configuration testings. The availability of high speed Internet is a critical requirement here as we have many clients who use cloud-based big data clusters and Qliksense for checking live data. The wholesale banking products as well the real-time macro-economic data is fed from Oxford economics to run various Monte Carlo simulations, so availability of high speed and minimal downtime is vital.

We use the ISR for our branches and the ASR in our data centers. We have more than 50 branches and 12 data centers around the world. We have 2x MPLS networks connecting our branches and data centers and we are using BGP to dynamic routing all our traffic. We also use ASR to receive circuits from our clients in a BPN environment.

We use the ASR1000 series for our Internet edge. We run with a full BGP feed with redundant routers and redundant Internet links. They provide us with highly available Internet access. This is a critical service for us because many of our core services are cloud-based. General access to the Internet is also a core service we provide. Even a short outage can generate a lot of trouble tickets and complaints.

We use cisco routers for both edge, core and application service routing and tunnelling. I also use a Cisco router at home. The routers in play have to be reliable and performant above all else and the HA feature set needs to be both simple and reliable.
