Cisco 5000 Series Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS 5000)

It seems to me that it is a piece of equipment totally suitable for virtualization, it works perfectly either as an ISR or as an ASA Firewall. This 5000 series of equipment is a platform that is specifically designed and oriented to run VNF. This saves time and at the same time allows us to simplify operations.

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.
