Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

There are [not] many products out there that do all these functions at this price point made by such a trusted brand. You may be able to save a bit going with a lesser known brand but you get what you pay for. If someone asked I'd easily recommend this series or the line in general to take care of all your routing needs.

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.

I would rate these routers useability as 9/10 - I've designed and deployed Cisco solutions for the last 20 or so years, so, therefore, know what I am buying and try to get an understanding of the capabilities before deploying. The Cisco 1000 series Integrated Service Router is a rock-solid investment with great throughput "out of the box".

My experience is that there is always something that proves to be just a bit tedious to get figured out but once you do it is easily duplicated

Cisco routers can be configure and forgotten unless you are adding to the configuration or on the rare troubleshooting event.

With any Cisco product, you are very well supported by the Technical Assistance Centre (TAC). This is one of the major plus points when selecting Cisco networking products - working in IT for the last 20years you soon appreciate that it is impossible to know everything and that there are people within Cisco you can lean-on when you need assistance.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

We are a mainly CISCO shop, so Junipers are out for the most part. We chose the ASR1001-x as it was an upgrade from the ASR1004 we were using previously. We required the ability to process a lot of traffic using 1G and 10G interfaces, with scalability and security features that match.

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.

Return on Investment

Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

  • Once they are installed they just work. Even when a device enters EOL/EOS they keep chugging along.
  • Good lifetime - they don't retire models so often that you can't keep up.
  • Good extended support, this allows us to keep them in place as long as possible (or practical) and increases our ROI.
