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

There are a number of scenarios in which the Cisco 1000 V Series is particularly well suited. Just a couple examples in our particular case would include reducing the over all security risk at our company as well as increasing network scalability (which proves to be crucial in an industry such as ours).

Juniper Enterprise Routers

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.

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 Cloud Services Router 1000V Series (CSR 1000V)

I can not really say for certain, as we did not end up ever using Alcatel Lucent Omni Access. We compared the two routers in a number of ways, and we decided that Cisco had a better reputation, better guarantee, and although pricier, it was worth it for their history.

Juniper Enterprise Routers

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

Juniper Enterprise Routers

  • We're saved over 35% upgrading the Network to Juniper.
