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.

Nokia 7750 Service Routers (SR) are good as a core switch and brings in value for money, with its high capacity switching and routing. It is suited as the best MPLS switch and has been a popular choice for L3 routing too by many SP. It is not good for distribution and access.

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.

We have both Nokia 7750 and Cisco ASR 9000 in our network. The main advantage of the Nokia 7750 is its compatibility with the SAM element manager and users easily can configure using SAM. This feature is not found on ASR9k. Cisco is good for L3 routing especially BGP functionalities and peering.

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