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.

Juniper MX Series

It is well suited as a WAN/Internet Edge device. It is easy to configure BGP, contexts and routing instances. Its suite of tools has saved our organization money by being able to provide services (tag stacking, for example) that our provider would normally charge us more for. Due to interface cost this would not be appropriate as a LAN aggregation device.

Cons

Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)

  • Most are single power supply
  • If they aren't a full 19" 1U device you have to purchase rack ears separately from the device

Juniper MX Series

  • Sometimes I wish that documentation was more robust, complete, though this has been improved of late.
  • It would be nice if netflow was easier to configure.
  • It would be nice if the platform was cheaper.

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

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.

Juniper MX Series

We preferred Juniper over Cisco for our WAN/Internet routing needs for a number of reasons. First was the price, the Juniper offering was much more competitive than Cisco's. Secondly, was feature set, Juniper's implementation of routing protocols, routing tables, and forwarding options are better thought-out than Cisco's (not to mention Juniper's longstanding use of commit/confirm/rollback features, which Cisco has only started to use recently, and only on some of their products).

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

Return on Investment

Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)

  • Investment in education
  • High price
  • Easy material
Jose Almeida | TrustRadius Reviewer

Juniper MX Series

  • Its flexible architecture and configuration styles has saved our organization money by providing feature we would have otherwise needed to purchase from our ISPs.
  • It has a long and healthy lifecycle, with potential upgrades for more performance if needed. (This helps alleviate the downtime associated with chassis replacement.)
  • The only drawback is some of the highest throughput interfaces are expensive.
