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.

Pros

Cisco

  • [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.

Cons

Cisco

  • 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.

  • When Internet is lost and come back we need to reset the Z3 device from the dashboard in order to register the IP Phone to CUCM
  • It would be nice to manage the Z3 device to a local web portal just for TS
  • Max Speed 100Mbps. It would be nice if it could run up to 1GB

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      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.

      With Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800) you can establish VPN connections and maybe integrate the IP Phone to your CUCM; however, you need an expert in place; you need to configure it with tunnels GRE or VPNs for example; you also need to configure other VPN devices on the main site. With Cisco Meraki Z3 Teleworker you just connect it to the Internet and make some easy configuration from the Meraki Dashboard and are ready.

      Return on Investment

      Cisco

      • 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.

      • Good visibility for IT team so we can monitor and validate the teleworker traffic
      • Zero Touch Provisioning so we do not need to send a Engineer to configure it.
      • Consumer-grade network security
