Cisco IOS XR7

Network operating system Cisco IOS XR7 is well suited for high-volume networks. It works well for those who are yester-generation and are stuck with the CLI command interface. Cisco IOS XR7 is definitely not suited for small businesses due to its high pricing. Additionally, purchasing security on top of this is a complete no-no for small to medium businesses.

Cons

Cisco IOS XR7

  • Web interface can certainly be improved.
  • It is stuck with a command-line interface. I understand that old users were CLI addicts but a whole new world emerged and it's not fair to force them to learn CLI.
  • Pricing-wise it is always too high. Can look into reducing that exorbitant pricing for routers.

Cisco IOS XR7

Cisco's routers running Cisco IOS XR7 are rock solid, have years of proven performance, and the maintainers base for its CLI-based interface for set up and maintenance. Even though it is pretty high on initial purchase costs, this year of rock-solid performance is what a few of our customers very much needed and this is the very reason a few of our customers, and we did suggest Cisco IOS XR7 running routers for them.

Cisco IOS XR7

  • Made operational simple for already Linux-style working workforce in the organization hence reducing operational costs.
  • Picking and choosing only those software packages needed for us certainly brought down our purchasing costs.
  • On the negative side, the initial cost of purchase is very high. Small to medium companies will surely think many times.
