Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)

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.

Well suited for SMB and for organizations with multiple sites that need VPN connection. We've used it for 10-20 users per site with a 2-5 Mbps internet connection. It's less appropriate for large business with many users to be connectedBuilt-in WiFi features can give wireless modem capability. Dual-LAN-supported so you will get redundancy.

Cisco Small Business RV Series

  • More switchports would be welcome, although this would increase cost and size
  • Faster wireless would improve performance
  • An SPF port would allow uplinking to more business-class switches

My experience is that there is always something that proves to be just a bit tedious to get figured out but once you do it is easily duplicated

The features are good. The support is good. The resources to deploy, manage, and operate it are good. Customer's feedback and testimonials are good. The updates in terms of zero day vulnerabilities are good and timely. But, I still give an 8 out of 10 because I think the pricing, licensing, and GUI can be improved more.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)

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.

Cisco Small Business RV Series

Cisco's power really stems from its brand reputation and honestly not much else. No one ever got fired for deploying Cisco, and that's why it stands out. The Cisco Small Business RV Series is no exception there; the unit is built well and does the job. However, much more powerful alternatives for routers are out there—the biggest competitor being Ubiquiti. The UniFi routers are significantly more powerful in all regards, including routing speed, IPS/IDS speeds, and VPN functionality. Support for those is admittedly rather lackluster though, so if your network is critical, you are effectively self-insuring your equipment. For some that may be fine, but for others, that risk of extended downtime is just not worth it.

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