ASR1002. Can it take a RP2 upgrade?

With the global routing table hitting over 500,000 routes I want to check our ASR can be upgraded accordingly to facilitate this.

 

When doing a show ver is shows "cisco ASR1002"

 

Now am I reading the below right in that the RP cannot be upgraded for this ASR to RP2?

Can it be installed at all?

 

Thanks

Thanks. So for the ASR1002 is

Thanks.

 

So for the ASR1002 is there any workaround to allowing it to take more than 512,000 routes. Is it hard fixed at that. 


It can only have up to 4GB of SDRAM as it won't take 8GB.

The "workaround" would be (if possible for your need) to not accept the complete Internet route table.  Otherwise, you're looking at purchasing a more capable platform.

I've just raised a TAC case

I've just raised a TAC case and I've been advised that due to the ASR1002 having a ESP10 that it should be fine for 1m routes even with 4GB.

Such conflicting information however as the below blog advises 512k routes:

http://blogs.cisco.com/sp/global-internet-routing-table-reaches-512k-milestone/

Apparently the ESP5 is limited to 512k routes but not ESP10.

Well, just get Cisco to commit that >500K routes is a supported configuration on that platform.
