Core Routers are instances of the Cisco XRv Virtual Router with IOS XR version 6.1.2
All other 22 Routers are instances of the CSR1000v Virtual Routers with IOS XE version 16.9.5
All Router interconnections are done with a combination of Sub-interfaces y Tunnels.
Please notice that these interconnections are not pre-configured.
The Customer is responsible to make all Router interconnections.
Each XRv and each CSR1000v Virtual Router needs at least 3GB of RAM to operate
Since this Server has 128GB, it has enough RAM to guarantee a good performance!
