Cisco 2000 Series Connected Grid Routers (CGR 2000)

These may not be the fastest or latest [technology] when it comes to routers, but for their class, they are great. If you were you put a similarly priced router out in the places these things can run it would be dead within a year. Also, you don't need to have an elaborate networking closet to get these into. They work well in small, hot, or potentially dusty places with ease.

Suitable for all environments, whether it be small or very large corporate offices. Routers are reliable and robust and if you have the budget, then you should not sacrifice for cheaper.

We didn't look outside of the Cisco branded routers since we wanted to manage it as part of the enterprise and not have a "one-off" router.
