We have ASR9k chassis as below and have plan to realize NAT44, NAT64, Dual Stack ip structure on the chassis.

But when i check licene information on the web site, i couldn't totally understand what kind of license i have to prepare or purchase.

 1. I need to buy VSM or ISM

 
1. I need to buy VSM or ISM hareware?  Is it essential?
A. Yes, it is essential. 
 
2. Can i use basic feature of NAT44,NAT64,Dual Stack with RSP without hardware(VSM or ISM)?
A. No, ASR9k does not support SW NAT and hence dedicated HW is required.
 
3. If i have to buy hardware, which hardware do you recommand (vsm or ism)?
A. VSM is the next generation CGN card but it supports NAT44 yet.   NAT64 is expected to be supported since 5.3.0 on VSM (Jan/Feb 2015)
 
4. What kind of license do i have to buy for NAT44 from VSM?
A9K-XLAT-LIC-5M
 
7. What kind of license do i have to buy for NAT44 from ISM?
A. A9K-CGN-LIC-5M
 
8. What kind of license do i have to buy for NAT64 from ISM?
A. A9K-NAT64-LIC-5M
 
9. What kind of license do i have to buy for Dual Stack from ISM?
A. A9K-DSLT-LIC-5M
 
10. We are using Linceard Service Card(A9K-MOD160-SE) as below. Do i need to buy also "A9K-M160-V6-INLN" License?
11. If i have to buy license as above, what is the exact function of this license "A9K-M160-V6-INLN"?
A. Inline improves performance by out tasking forwarding functionality to a LC. The Inline license only applies to the 6RD, MAP-E & MAP-T features. ISM is still required.

Dear AkiritchFirst of all,

Dear Akiritch

First of all, really thanks for your feedback.

Actually i have further questions regarding CGN.

1. related to question number "10" like above, is there any limitation for configuration dual stack ip configuration(not ds-lite) on asr9k? i mean just configuring two kind of ips (ipv4 and ipv6 both)to the interfaces.


2. also related to question number "10" like above, as i know, this licens(A9K-M160-V6-INLN) is for mainly to configure stateless NAT64.
Let's assume that i already have this license(A9K-NAT64-LIC-5M) with ISM module.

In this case, do i need to buy "A9K-M160-V6-INLN" license also essentially?

 

Thanks Regards.

A. No, licence is not needed for it.

A. A9K-NAT64-LIC-5M would be mandatory one and A9K-M160-V6-INLN optional in case we use MOD160 for inline NAT assistance. I am not sure about the this INLN usage details thought and let somebody else to comment on it. 

Or you may check it with your local cisco sales department.

Re:  1. I need to buy VSM or ISM

Is "A9K-24XT-V6-INLN"required for DS-Lite support on the line card(A9K-24X10GE-TR) in addition to A9K-XLAT-LIC-5M for VSM?

Re:  1. I need to buy VSM or ISM

Hi,

 

please check out this link 

It's an old post that I have created and I got some useful answers.

 

"To support inline Stateless CGN (MAP-T, MAP-E & 6RD), also linecards need a CGv6 license (eg. MOD80 -TR/-SE needs  A9K-M80-V6-INLN). For this, the ISM is still needed in the chassis, but  the traffic don't pass through it anymore, so no additional session  licenses are required."
