Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 1000)

Cisco Routers do well at everything from small home office networks that require basic security to large scale service provider implementations that include SD_WAN security. Their routers scale well and they have everything from small 4 port access routers to large enterprise Core routers that function as the backbone of very large networks.

Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)

The [Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)] is great when we need to add a small new site in a very short time.Our previous experience with these units makes the roll-out of new sites quick and almost seamless.The 800 series excels in locations where we want to tunnel all traffic back to the core site.Split tunneling for "SD-WAN" type use is not as functional as in other products.

  • Most are single power supply
  • If they aren't a full 19" 1U device you have to purchase rack ears separately from the device
  • VPN tunneling can be a bit of a configuration challenge

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 1000)

Cisco and HPE Routers are comparable products. Both do the job well without many differences. I would say HP Routers are easier to configure but come with a small performance hit compared to Cisco routers of the same size/scope. Cisco has the brand recognition and many more certified professionals using them though.

The Meraki Z3 falls into roughly the same category as the 800 series and requires no daughter card for PoE.The Meraki MX are more expensive and require more infrastructure to support.The Meraki units also completely stop working when licensing is not renewed, and are more in the class of an SD-WAN product.

Not every router can handle all situations and so you have to purchase the upgrade to do handle the new requirements.
