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.Incentivized
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.Incentivized
[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.Incentivized
[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.Incentivized
Being one of the most versatile routing/switching platforms available, it fulfills most functions one would need in a compact appliance.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.Incentivized
[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].Incentivized
Cisco has provided a real diverse router in a small package that meets the needs of our current environment. I highly recommend this product and should feel the to consider this type of solution, you would have made the right decision
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.
I think Cisco is a good product that offers a huge list of options where you can get support from. I find that forums, blogs and communities really assist wit resolving any issues that you might come across.
Implementation of this router is relatively easy. What i can say is plan your implementation and consider the the environment you are going to use it for.
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.Incentivized
I have similar feelings about the NCS 5500 Series Router. IOS-XR is great, but the need to upgrade components to support newer features seems like a planning oversight. 400G Linecards are great and needed.... but they need all new power supplies? Really? Also, the ability to use lags across multiple linecards would be nice. I'm pretty sure that's not available, but that is more understandable.Incentivized
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.Incentivized
Lots of money saved in downgrading from less useful and older full-sized routers at small sitesTime saved having to learn new commands (web GUI works great)Saves time training staff to manage themIncentivized
