Updated: Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules for ASR 1000 Series Router

Most users have questions about choosing and using the SFP modules for network switches, routers and firewalls. For example, which SFP transceivers will support my ASR 1001 router? Does my C1-WS3850-12S/K9 support the GLC-TE module? If the GLC-TE 1GE SFPs run well with 1000Mbit in a SFP+ port on the 4500-X?

Now in this article we will take the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers for the exact example. Find out all the SFP Transceivers for ASR 1000 Series Router.

Firstly, let’s read some users’ problems while choosing SFP modules.

Some users’ questions about SFP modules for ASR 1000 Series:

“We’ve recently bought a Cisco asr 1001 Router and I have a number of interface slots. I want to populate these with fibre modules. Can you tell me which fibre modules are compatible please? Are the regular SFPs ok to use or is there a special asr series of SFPs to use?”

“Recently am facing some issues with ASR 1002 and GLC-TE Copper Base-T Module.

Please see below details:

  1. Router Model ASR 1002 and Running IOS asr1000rp1-adventerprisek9.03.04.02.S.151-3.S2.bin
  2. Running Copper Base-T Module SFP-GE-T

Now I am trying to use GLC-TE module but port is not UP.

How can I solve this problem!!?”

For the ASR, you need “SFP-GE-T”. Cisco has updated its platforms and minimum software releases that support the Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) and Gigabit Ethernet Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver modules. We can read the full list of Transceiver Models and Minimum Software Release Required supported on Cisco ISR 1000 Series.
