This is effective for businesses who need a network solution that works more or less out of the box, without having to coordinate multiple additional devices in the configuration process. Correspondingly, users with needs for more advanced functionality or configurability, or modification may benefit from a different model or different product line.

My company is not so big to test the router on its highest limits. I can tell only that it works great and does not ask us for unexpected maintenance, service or unpleasant surprises. It works perfect and makes it's job the best.

Cons
Cisco
  • Right now in the ASR nine twenties, we're having an issue with its shooting out power adapter errors when there really isn't any. And we're not really sure we're working with Cisco Tex to see if it's a bug and if there's a bug fix.

  • Programming can be complicated for new users
  • An easier VPN setup would be a good value add to this product
  • PoE for IP Phones requires an add-on daughter card
  • The daughter card add expense and requires that the 800 series unit be opened to install card

Usability

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".

Support Rating
Cisco
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.

Implementation Rating
Cisco
The implementation basically works, you configure it and it's easy to use, the problem with implementation using this kind of products is the fact that complex things require very complex configurations and the troubleshooting is too complicated due to a missing web interface or missing integrations that simplify that part. troubleshooting consist only in debugging via CLI.

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
  • 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.

  • 800 Series units are a great value for very small sites
  • The 800 series have allowed us to be agile in the opening of sites quickly in under-served rural areas.
  • The only downside is having to renew the support every few years.
