Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

Cisco [800 Series Integrated Service] Routers, [specifically] 819 routers, are well suited for small offices like remote teleworker sites, and a very perfect solution for operating automated teller machines (ATMs) at locations where the only source of network connectivity is via a mobile network operator where one has to use a SIM card. The fact that the router supports dual SIM makes it a great solution. However, I guess because one has to configure the embedded modem to function as desired, it takes some time to get used to [the] chat scripts and so on.

No problems with any of the Cisco 900 Series [Integrated Services Routers] (ISR) platform features within the enterprise environment. Because these devices are running a version of IOS-XE as opposed to traditional IOS, some of the more 'basic' configurations can become more complex. In the end, the 900 Series is still able to provide the required functionality, but there is a learning curve.

Pros

Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

  • [Cisco 800 Series Integrated] Routers can form tunnels over a cellular network via the SIM inserted into it.
  • With an external antenna attached to it, their coverage is very good, making them suitable for remote sites where network coverage from ISPs is a concern.
  • They function as a switch and router in one device.

  • [It] works great full-featured, but [I recommend a] small router for remote sites.
  • [It] can handle more traffic than it even advertises!
  • [It has a] well-priced option for smaller or less critical sites.

Cons

Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

  • I have not experienced lack of functionality in any areas we use the appliance for.
  • One small feature I would like to have is 19" rack mount.

  • [It has a] pay as you grow model of licensing, but, [in my opinion, is] a pain to implement.
  • [The] service impacting license application [could be improved].
  • Configuration complexity [could be improved].

This router is easy to use and manage. It provides the features, most important the security our organization requires to function properly. There is also cohesion between the HQ router we are currently using.

Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

We looked into setting up Site to Site VPN with either Cisco ASAs or [Fortinet] FortiGate Firewalls. We were unable to find a product that didn't also require us to set up an LTE modem separately. It would have forced us to have a mess of cables and multiple devices. Our kit for the field with the Cisco 800 [Series Integrated Services Router] is simple: router, power cables, and wireless access point. Everything is labeled and attached plugs into one device. Any field user can follow the instructions [to] get up and running quickly.

Cisco Catalyst Switches are technically faster and easier to deploy but don't provide the same flexibility when it comes to 10Gbps services or advanced routing. There are corner cases where having IOS-XE on the 900 series ISRs provides the functionality required for complex applications whereas the Catalyst cannot. Having the option to scale the number of active ports on the 900 series ISR helps in keeping costs at an appropriate level.

Return on Investment

Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

  • The long-term stability is great, we have very few problems, resulting in low maintenance costs.
  • Configuration for almost all routers in the basics is the same, so there's a very short learning curve per model.
  • Running some models of Router for more than 10 years of stability, so the ROI with the devices is greater than expected on starting.

  • Lots of money saved in downgrading from less useful and older full-sized routers at small sites
  • Time saved having to learn new commands (web GUI works great)
  • Saves time training staff to manage them
