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.

The [Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)] is great when we need to add a small new site in a very short time.Our previous experience with these units makes the roll-out of new sites quick and almost seamless.The 800 series excels in locations where we want to tunnel all traffic back to the core site.Split tunneling for "SD-WAN" type use is not as functional as in other products.

  • Most are single power supply
  • If they aren't a full 19" 1U device you have to purchase rack ears separately from the device
  • VPN tunneling can be a bit of a configuration challenge

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 5000 Series Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS 5000)

It is used due to its great adaptability in large networks since it allows you to use different technologies, which is a very important factor since you save physical space but also allow you to continue enjoying the services.

The Meraki Z3 falls into roughly the same category as the 800 series and requires no daughter card for PoE.The Meraki MX are more expensive and require more infrastructure to support.The Meraki units also completely stop working when licensing is not renewed, and are more in the class of an SD-WAN product.

Not every router can handle all situations and so you have to purchase the upgrade to do handle the new requirements.
