Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco 2000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 2000)

The best scenarios for the Cisco 2000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 2000) is for outdoor exposures with little supporting infrastructure. I also recommend multiple fiber or copper connections since the network may have issues in the environment.
