Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)

Ok so they're fast, check. They're secure, check. They're well made, check. So what would stop me from recommending at all?? Well they're not cheap, not at all. And it doesnt end there, if you want to keep these guys on the smart licensing track (which you do, believe me, it will save you headaches) then its even more money. But like they say, you get what you pay for!

Recommending this device completely depends on the use case. If you are looking for a device that can be easily configured to dump clients on your private network, these are the ones to get. We've sent them home with users, sent them to small offices, or just for a meeting off-site. You can turn almost any internet connection into a home office. It's been very helpful during COVID-19 as we have needed to setup multiple offices outside of our normal area. Setup in the field does not require a technical person, just plugin and you are up and running.

Pros

Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)

  • Easy to use, simple to operate, highly predictable. IOS/IOS-XE is well known and there is a virtually limitless pool of engineers who know this platform and if not having direct experience, can apply knowledge from other IOS/IOS-XE with very little adjustment.
  • Extremely flexible due to wide variety of interfaces. NIM and SM-X provide a great deal options: TDM, E&M, FXO, FXS, switches and servers are all options.
  • Robust IP feature set: Routing protocols, NBAR, Netflow, QoS, DMVPN. This large IP feature set gives us the ISR makes it a highly re-usable router, capable in many different use cases.

Cons

Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)

  • The UCS-E blades that you can insert into the routers only get refreshed every 4-5 years. So the cpu/memory/HDD options are limited and quite dated
  • Some LTE connectivity options for some countries are lacking or LTE NIM cards for some countries are not supported
  • Does not support dual power supply options for maintaining uptime from power events

Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

  • Being one of the most versatile routing/switching platforms available, it fulfills most functions one would need in a compact appliance.
  • I have not experienced lack of functionality in any areas we use the appliance for.
  • One small feature I would like to have is 19" rack mount.

Very easy to use, and very effective on our environment. Scalable, stable, and can support all routing protocols needed in most manufacturing environments. The security license is very effective.

This router is easy to use and manage. It provides the features, most important the security our organization requires to function properly. There is also cohesion between the HQ router we are currently using.

As always the support from Cisco through the TAC has been great for this product. Of course, there are always some bugs to be expected, but to be honest, I think this platform is actually fairly stable and it builds on the IOS software that has been around for many years.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)

We did not compare the Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers to other competitors as we used Cisco for a long period of time already. We selected this product as we used a lot of CISCO products in the past and with good support. Other products don't have the protocols that CISCO products have.

We built a total Cisco environment based on Cisco-only network equipment. We started with UCS for Compute and network, and are now switching to HyperFlex. This is all connected to Nexus switches and some Catalyst switches for OOBM. This is also all connected to the internet by an HA cluster of Cisco ASAs.On remote sites, we are using Cisco ASAs with Catalyst switches with 1800 APs with Mobility Express. In some specific cases we missed routing equipment or routing functions not available on Cisco ASAs, so we selected and are using Cisco Routers.

Return on Investment

Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)

  • deployment in different branches were quick and easy to be done
  • Same config push on all routers helped to get the setup done in few hours.
  • expansion is very easy with NIM available for different purpose whether it be WAN port or PRI or FXS port.
  • Cube license helps to increase the SIP channel as and when required as no hardware change is required which is very helpful.

  • The long-term stability is great, we have very few problems, resulting in low maintenance costs.
  • Configuration for almost all routers in the basics is the same, so there's a very short learning curve per model.
  • Running some models of Router for more than 10 years of stability, so the ROI with the devices is greater than expected on starting.
