    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.

    Cons

    Cisco 1000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 1000)

    • Cisco Routers are more expensive than other competitors.
    • Cisco Routers require leaning of the command line interface, complicated stuff for non-technical people.
    • Interchangeability is limited with some other manufacturers because Cisco sometimes uses proprietary protocols.

    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.
