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.

  • The configuration is not easy to do with the console. A more user-friendly approach would be appreciated.
  • When a problem occurs doing the configuration, the debug information is not very helpful.
  • WiFi capability would be great.
  • Maybe have a version with GPU to be able to run AI models on it.

      Alternatives Considered

      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 operational cost can be afforded by both small and large-scale businesses. Workflow automation enhances faster service delivery and creates room for the deployment of new services. I commend this platform to any organization that is struggling to realize development dream in networking programs.
