Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V Series (CSR 1000V)

If you just need to do simple communication to Azure such as smb and rdp sessions then the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V Series is overkill. If you need to setup multiple mesh vpn connections to existing ISRs and have complicated routing with multiple protocols then Cisco Cloud Services Router makes that setup much easier and less work to maintain and troubleshoot.

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Before Cisco SD-WAN, our users even struggled to send emails with Microsoft 365
  • Cloud applications, such as SharePoint, were not taking a long time to load and made it impossible to collaborate
  • Streaming services--even though video streaming does not work at desired levels, music streaming started to work without interruption

Cons

Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V Series (CSR 1000V)

  • Would be nice if the license expiration simply limited throughput rather than removing features.
  • Better compatibility with VMWare player would be nice. Specifically, making sure you open the serial console almost immediately after turning on the VM.

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Ease of initial configuration - I'm not actually sure how to make it easier without losing granularity and control, but it can be very difficult and confusing when first setting up. Afterwards, it's just point and click.
  • Model upload - It would be nice if a given hardware model could be "uploaded" to provide a basic configuration to start with.
  • Logs - I'd prefer more options for filtering logs and having certain ones not be alarms of any kind.

Cisco SD-WAN 8.2
Based on 21 answers
The support that we have received during the deployment phase and the guidance that was imparted with were top-notch. We could have configured this without a doubt, but the expert opinion and advice that was provided to us helped accelerate the design and implementation process that we took. I won't go into specifics, as there are too many and they are on the case to case basis, but I am confident that you will be informed on what "fits" your needs best.

They are great! Even with the price point it is totally worth it.

We only compared Silver Peak NX and Cisco SD-WAN. Since we are primarily a Cisco infrastructure shop, it seemed to integrate better than Silver Peak. We liked the confirmed long-term support from Cisco we have grown accustomed to and did not want to take a chance on a new player. Nothing bad to say about Silver Peak, we just chose another route.

Return on Investment

Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V Series (CSR 1000V)

  • We were able to quickly and efficiently setup connections to Azure.
  • We outsource our network team so having a single platform makes our support costs less.
  • We had no need to redesign our existing on-prem network to allow mesh connection to Azure.

Cisco SD-WAN

  • In my previous company, we had several production facilities across the US using Cisco's SD-WAN and it allowed the company to continue to provide for employees and our end customers when problems arose with circuits.
  • As I mentioned previously, vManage allowed the company to track when there are circuit outages in a really simple portal. Before Cisco's SD-WAN, we had to spend money on 3rd party monitoring.
  • Whenever there was an issue with the server, an employee could request assistance from anywhere instead of worrying about whether or not there was an IT employee present.
