Overview

 

The Cisco IOS XRv 9000 router implements the feature set of Cisco IOS XR software. Running on virtualized general x86 compute platforms, it complements existing physical Cisco router platforms that rely on Cisco IOS XR software, such as Cisco Network Convergence System routers, Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers, and Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS) platforms.

 

Now, service providers can enhance their operational excellence and offerings based on physical routers and easily move them to a virtual form factor. The Cisco IOS XRv 9000 router offers greater agility, improved network efficiency, lower capital and operational expenditures, and the ability to efficiently scale network capacity up and down, based on demand.

 

This lab demonstrates how to install the IOS XRv 9000 in a VMware ESXi environment.
