Cisco Routers

One major drawback of Cisco Routers is that it is quite expensive. It may not be the perfect budget friendly item for most small companies. However, it is highly accessible and reliable. Security concerns are next to nil so it is something one can rely on, without fearing frauds and security breeches.

Extreme Networks Wireless WAN

The Extreme Wireless WLAN solution is ideal for any type of business and can be deployed in small, medium and large scenarios as per customer demand. Access points are robust and support high density of connected clients without loss of performance. I use the wifi network to work with my notebook and smartphone when I'm not at my desk connected to a network cable.

Cons

Cisco Routers

  • Firmware improvements as the routers (at least the models I used) can sometimes crash while setting up.
  • In two RV042 that I had to configure and monitor, I had problems where they stopped working properly (crashes, loss of settings, bug). In another model, the VPN did not connect and only after a router restart did it work.
  • Three WAN options on RV line.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Routers

I haven't used other routers in my career. We evaluated Palo Alto but quickly realized we needed to stay with Cisco, as they never gave us a reason to change. Palo Alto also was a much greater financial investment we were not willing to take, along with the learning curve to support their hardware.
