Thank you to everyone for your responses.  The consensus is that the 1002-F is great for terminating a few thousand access tails under 2.5G in aggregate bandwidth of course with VRF’s, MPLS, QoS, ACL’s etc that you would expect in a standard deployment.

The information I’ve seen online where people have been told by TAC that the ASR1002 fixed devices are not suitable for broadband appear to be related to earlier code releases and that the newer releases are problem free and quite stable.

I do note these devices are EOL but have TAC until 2017 and software updates until this year, seems like a very viable NPE-G2 replacement.

Enjoy your weekends!

Subject: [AusNOG] Cisco ASR1002-F for Broadband Aggregation

Hi Guys,

I am looking for some first hand advise from anyone who may have or may be using a Cisco ASR1002-F as a LAC or LNS.

I've been doing some research online for a few hours and information is very few and far between.

I am looking to deploy at small interstate PoP's where 2.5G will be suitable but need to use for VPLS/MPLS to the edge for some access tails.

Lots of information about the 1002 but some comments from people suggesting the 'Fixed' version is limited.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Kindest Regards,
Nathan Brookfield
