Cisco 900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR)

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.

As an edge/WAN router that contains internet BGP routes, it handles this work very well. And the devices are robust, able to manage a significant load. However, the interface cost can be somewhat of a hindrance when wanting to use it to interconnect many metro clients.

Cons

Cisco 900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR)

  • [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].

  • I would like to able to find more examples of configs. Given the multiple ways to configure the same setting, having a little more documentation would be helpful.
  • I wish the FPCs and interfaces were cheaper.

Juniper support is friendly, easy to understand, widely knowledgeable, and easy to get ahold of. I did not give them a higher rating as some of my more complex issues, were solved by myself while under consultation from Juniper TAC.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR)

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.

Both products are great, even the CLI is very alike in both products. We chose Juniper for its reliability and support.

Return on Investment

Cisco 900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR)

  • 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

Juniper Enterprise Routers

  • We're saved over 35% upgrading the Network to Juniper.
  • There's a learning curve to get used the command line, so learn it before getting your hands on a Juniper Router. It's worth it, and you'll see your ROI immediately.
