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.

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 Enterprise Routers

  • 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.

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)

Neither product supported all the protocols we needed to allow all of our locations to route. It does add some complications to the gateway and vnet setup though. Once we retired our ISRs we were able to go to Meraki vMX and the auto-vpn setup works rather well and is much simpler than IOS configs

Juniper Enterprise Routers

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 Cloud Services Router 1000V Series (CSR 1000V)

  • I don't need to use outdated hardware for testing.
  • Don't need a dedicated power feed to spin up a usably-sized network.

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.
