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.

Juniper MX Series

It is well suited as a WAN/Internet Edge device. It is easy to configure BGP, contexts and routing instances. Its suite of tools has saved our organization money by being able to provide services (tag stacking, for example) that our provider would normally charge us more for. Due to interface cost this would not be appropriate as a LAN aggregation device.

Juniper MX Series

  • Sometimes I wish that documentation was more robust, complete, though this has been improved of late.
  • It would be nice if netflow was easier to configure.
  • It would be nice if the platform was cheaper.

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".

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.

Juniper MX Series

We preferred Juniper over Cisco for our WAN/Internet routing needs for a number of reasons. First was the price, the Juniper offering was much more competitive than Cisco's. Secondly, was feature set, Juniper's implementation of routing protocols, routing tables, and forwarding options are better thought-out than Cisco's (not to mention Juniper's longstanding use of commit/confirm/rollback features, which Cisco has only started to use recently, and only on some of their products).

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.

Juniper MX Series

  • Its flexible architecture and configuration styles has saved our organization money by providing feature we would have otherwise needed to purchase from our ISPs.
  • It has a long and healthy lifecycle, with potential upgrades for more performance if needed. (This helps alleviate the downtime associated with chassis replacement.)
  • The only drawback is some of the highest throughput interfaces are expensive.
