Cisco Routers

Cisco Routers are well suited for organizations that are looking for reliable and secure network routers. Once they are set up and configured, they have a reputation for longevity. Updates from Cisco are provided on a regular basis and contain many security patches throughout the year. The use of Cisco Routers might be less appropriate for smaller organizations that may not have the staff to support the devices.

Cisco Routers

Purchasing Cisco Routers was a decision we made after researching various other options and solutions. The next best alternative we found was from Adtran - however, after assessing the costs and benefits of both solutions we decided on Cisco. Although, they are slightly more expensive we felt the product was far superior and was worth the incremental investment. A few years after the purchase decision we feel this was the right move and are very happy with the purchase

  • Using Cisco Routers, there are gains in network management possibilities. For example, you can add WAN and VPN redundancy to the business. Most small businesses still do not use such resources.
