OVERVIEW

The Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR) revolutionize WAN communications in the enterprise branch. With new levels of built-in intelligent network capabilities and convergence, the routers specifically address the growing need for application-aware networking in distributed enterprise sites. These locations tend to have lean IT resources. But they often also have a growing need for direct communication with both private data centers and public clouds across diverse links, including Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs and the Internet.

Cisco 4000 Series ISR General Feature Highlights

Business Requirement(s)

Feature/Solution

Performance

●  Throughput
●  Service reliability
●  Concurrent software services at speeds up to 2 Gbps. Backplane architecture supports high-bandwidth module-to-module communication at speeds up to 10 Gbps.
●  A distributed multicore architecture with the industry’s first internal services plane.
●  Remote installation of application-aware services, which run identically to their counterparts in dedicated appliances.

Lower WAN expenditures

●  Embedded IWAN solution for creating lower-cost, business-class Internet connections.

Pay-as-you-grow

●  Performance upgrade model
●  Investment protection
●  CapEx budget management
●  Router capacity can be increased with a remote performance-on-demand license upgrade (no hardware upgrade) for exceptional savings.

Superior and secure user application experiences

●  “Application Experience” software bundle with advanced routing and network monitoring services.
●  Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN), zone-based firewalls, intrusion prevention (Snort and Umbrella Branch) and content management using Cisco Cloud Web Security and OpenDNS protecting data, providing authentication credentials, and enabling transmissions that are not backhauled through the data center.
●Secure boot feature performs hardware-based authentication of the bootloader software to prevent malicious or unintended software from booting on the system.
● Code signing verifies digital signatures of executables prior to loading to prevent the execution of altered or corrupted code.
●Hardware authentication protects against hardware counterfeiting by using an onboard tamper-proof silicon, including field replaceable modules. If authentication fails, the module is not allowed to boot.

IT consolidation, space savings, and improved total cost of ownership (TCO)

●  Single converged branch platform integrates routing, switching, virtual server, storage, security, unified communications, WAN optimization, and performance management tools.

Business continuity and increased resiliency

●  4400 Series models (4451 and 4431 ISRs) support dual integrated power supplies
for backup. The entire 4000Series supports optional power supply capable of
delivering additional PoE power to endpoints. Defined models provide for a DC power supply.
●  Modular network interfaces with diverse connection options for load-balancing and network resiliency.
●  Modular interfaces with online removal and insertion (OIR) for module upgrades without network disruption.
●  Cisco Unified Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST), which serves as a resiliency complement to Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS), a Cisco cloud-based UC service.
●  Support for multiple, diverse access links: T1/E1, T3/E3, Serial, xDSL, Gigabit and Ten-Gigabit Ethernet.

Lower telephony costs with VoIP and rich media experiences

●  High-performance analog/digital gateway, allowing VoIP over less expensive Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunks.
●  Integrated IP PBX and Session Border Controller

Easier manageability and support

●  Single, universal software image for all features and performance-on-demand licensing flexibility.
●  No additional services and support needed for compute and storage.
●  Supported by Cisco and third-party management tools, with programmability and automation.

Architectural Highlights

Architectural Features

Benefits/Description

Multicore processors

  High-performance multicore processors support high-speed WAN connections. The data plane uses an emulated Flow Processor (FP) that delivers application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC)-like performance that does not degrade as services are added.

Embedded IP Security (IPsec) VPN hardware acceleration

  Increases scalability. When combined with an optional Cisco IOS XE Software Security license, enables WAN link security and VPN services.

Integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports

  The Cisco 4000 Series provides up to four built-in 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for WAN or LAN.
  Based on the platform, some of the 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports can support Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)-based connectivity in addition to RJ-45 connections, enabling fiber or copper connectivity.
  Optionally, depending on the platform, up to 30W PoE+ can be enabled on two of the built-in front panel Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to provide power to external devices such as fourth-generation (4G) LTE routers.
  An additional dedicated Gigabit Ethernet port is provided for device management.

USB-based console access

  A mini type B USB console port1 supports management connectivity when traditional serial ports are not available.
  Traditional console and auxiliary ports are also available.

Optional integrated power supply for distribution of PoE

  An optional upgrade to the internal power supply provides inline power (802.3af-compliant PoE or 802.3at-compliant PoE+) to optional integrated switch modules.
  Redundant PoE conversion modules provide an additional layer of fault tolerance.

Optional integrated redundant power supply (RPS)

  For the 4400 Series, power redundancy is available by installing an optional integrated RPS for decreasing network downtime and protecting the network from power failures.
  Optional PoE boost mode increases total PoE capacity to up to 1000W.

Cisco Enhanced Services Module (SM-X)

  Each service-module slot offers high data-throughput capability If up to 10 Gbps toward the system and up to 1 Gbps to other module slots.
  Support for both single- and double-wide service modules provides flexibility in deployment options.
  An SM-X slot can be converted into a Network Interface Module (NIM) slot using an optional carrier card.
  Service modules support online insertion and removal (OIR), avoiding network disruption when installing new or replacement modules.

Cisco Network Interface Modules (NIMs)

  Up to three integrated NIM slots on the Cisco 4000 Series allow for flexible configurations.
  Each NIM slot offers options of up to two 2-Gbps connections, one toward the route processor and one for direct module-to-module communication. The 4221 ISR has only one 1-Gbps connection to the route processor.
  NIMs support OIR.
  Special NIMs add support for solid-state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs).

Cisco Integrated Services Card (ISC) slot on motherboard

  Integrated Services Card natively supports the new Cisco High-Density Packet Voice Digital Signal Processor Modules (PVDM4s), providing greater-density rich-media voice.
  Each Integrated Services Card slot connects to the system architecture through an up to 2-Gbps link.
  Future modules can be hosted on the Integrated Services Card slot, improving system functions.

Flash memory support

  A single flash memory slot is available to support high-speed storage densities, upgradable to up to
32 GB. The 4221 ISR ships with a fixed 8 GB flash.
  Two USB type A 2.0 ports provide capabilities for convenient storage.

DRAM

  For the 4400 Series ISRs, the default control-plane memory is 4 GB, upgradable to 16 GB to provide additional scalability for control-plane features. The default data-plane memory is 2 GB.
  For the 4300 Series ISRs, the default memory is 4 GB, upgradable to 16 GB (only 8 GB for the 4321) to provide additional scalability.
  The 4200 Series comes with 4 GB fixed DRAM.
