ASRE 1000 - ASR 1000 Series Essentials v3.1.0S
Learn the major features of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series router.
In this course, you will learn the major features, functions, characteristics, and connectivity options of the Cisco Aggregation Services Routers (ASR) 1000 Series routers in enterprise and service provider environments. You will get detailed platform-specific information on the hardware and Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.1.0S operations, and you'll learn the functional operation of High Availability, In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU), Quality of Service (QoS), security, and multicast services in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.
Note: You are required to bring your own laptop and Ethernet cable to class.
What You'll Learn
- Features, benefits, and functions of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series routers
- Architecture, features, and functions of hardware elements of the 1RU, 2RU, 4RU, 6RU, and 13RU chassis, route processor, embedded services processor (ESP), SPA interface processor (SIP), QuantumFlow processor, and shared port adapters (SPAs)
- Cisco ASR 1000 operating system and functionality
- How packets are processed and the various components in this process
- Install software in and successfully reboot a Cisco ASR 1000 Series router
- Initiate a failover and describe Cisco ASR 1000 High Availability capabilities
- Install software and examine the Cisco ASR 1000 ISSU capabilities
- How QoS is implemented in hardware and how QoS features provide improved and more predictable network service
- Configure QoS for ingress queueing and egress shaping
- Configure multicast services
- Configure IP Security (IPSec) and firewall/Network Address Translation (NAT) services
Who Needs to Attend
Technical professionals, especially customer technical support personnel, system engineers, and system integrators, who need to know how to implement Cisco ASR 1000 Series routers in their network environment
- ICND1 or equivalent experience
- Knowledge of Cisco IOS Software commands
- Understanding of principles of QoS, multicast, and IPSec services

Lab 1: Lab Access and Cisco ASR 1000 Orientation
Become familiar with access to the remote Cisco ASR 1000 lab and the Cisco ASR 1000 hardware modules.
Lab 2: Performing System Software Maintenance Functions
Boot the router from ROMMON, become familiar with the file system, and reload the software.
Lab 3: Configuring and Testing High Availability
Practice forcing a failover of the redundant route processor and ESP and observe any traffic loss.
Lab 4: Configuring and Testing ISSU
Practice performing software upgrades in various modes, including the superpackages and subpackages using existing and native CLI methods.
Lab 5: Configuring QoS and Viewing Results
Configure and test QoS implementation of ingress queuing and egress shaping of multiple traffic classes.
Lab 6: Configuring and Testing Multicast
Configure multicast services on the Cisco ASR 1000 and observe the results using various show and debug commands. You will also force a high-availability failover and observe the effect that it has on multicast traffic.
Lab 7: Configuring and Testing Firewall and NAT
Configure zone-based firewall and NAT and view stateful sessions. Then, force a high-availability failover and observe the effect it has on stateful sessions.
