Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000)

As we provide our network services poor multiple customers we were looking for a well-known brand where we could rely on their name. Cisco was, besides Aruba, the way to go in our situation. After configuration, the network administrators were able to keep everything under control with ease. It could be a bit tough for the beginning network administrator but overall it was a great investment!

Cons

Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000)

  • The ASR 1000 series routers can, as with most devices, improve with additional memory capacity and upgraded chip sets for faster processing.
  • There seems to be limitations on the number of routing sessions the smaller ASR devices can handle, which can be overcome with proper planning and placement within the network.

All our modular contingency service exercises use this equipment, it allows us to perform this type of exercises very easily, in a controlled and effective way. It is used at least once a month for these types of events. It also allows configuration replication in computers that are under the same model.

We did not heavily engage with the Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router (ASR1000) support function as we decide to switch the solution to a more cost-effective option, and this was primarily a price decision vs. any support related decision.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000)

Before standardizing on the Cisco ASR 1000 we had explored the idea of using Juniper routers. Ultimately we felt the Cisco ASR 1000 was a better fit at the time. We have been very happy with this decision, but it might not be the right decision for everyone. It fit our environment and our needs very well, Juniper is also a very good choice.

A huge positive side of using Cisco is that it is easy to understand. Apart from expanding our software application industry, this device made a huge impact through acquisition. Using Cisco, another point that stacks up against all other routers is that it is keeping up with current business trends. Traffic filtration is very simple with an access-list, which works very efficiently. Cisco comes out with the best routing engine among all the other router services. Cisco overcomes all of the issues that we are dealing with [when it comes to] other routing services.

Return on Investment

Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000)

  • It is a healthy return on investment with planned packed size data. Average unicast latency is low and consistent with small and large packets (barring mid-sized).
  • Cisco devices last longer and also have a decent trade-in policy to recover some value when equipment is replaced.
  • Higher concurrent IPSec tunnels are offered, we tested for 1500+, fielding both encrypted and a mix of encrypted and cleartext traffic.

  • Although it has advanced technology, it is cheaper than the traditional router.
  • Easy to manage with only 1 person.
