We needed tried and true device to support both internet edge and OTV functionality. While the ASR1K line is reaching end-of-life, the Catalyst 8500-series platform was brand new so we were not ready to invest in that platform; however, in hindsight, given Cisco has EoL'd the ASR1K for software/security, likely in mid/late 2025, we are disappointed in its longevity.

  • Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)
We haven't used any other manufacturer other than Cisco. [H]owever, we have used different models that Cisco offers. The ASR has a little more horsepower than the ISR. Both are very good routers though.

Before standardizing on the Cisco ASR 1000 we had explored the idea of using Juniper routers. Ultimately we felt the Cisco ASR 1000 was a better fit at the time. We have been very happy with this decision, but it might not be the right decision for everyone. It fit our environment and our needs very well, Juniper is also a very good choice.

The Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000) don't go against the alternatives I've used, but make a great combination of devices, and configuring them alongside each other makes it very easy to administer the whole network. Configuring VLANs across them and setting up policies can be done via CLI or web interfaces, or even using third-party softwares that get along really well with all of them.

We initially selected the Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router (ASR100). However - when we needed to purchase additional equipment and upgrade the system, we ended up going a different route. We found a more cost-effective solution and did not continue to order incremental Cisco products - we feel this was a much better investment/use of resources.

  • Cisco 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 9000)
The Cisco 1000 series devices in most cases perform vastly different roles in a large network than the ASR 9000s. They take up a lot less physical space, require less cooling and less power consumption at a lower cost. However, they cannot process information at the same efficiency as a Cisco ASR 9000, but if installed and configured properly, the devices can work together to efficiently perform all necessary network functions without impactful outages.

Cisco has a larger market share than Juniper in the router markets. Because of that, there are more certified Cisco service engineers and more online support resources compared with Juniper for troubleshooting hardware issues. The rest of our LAN infrastructure was already Cisco making the support footprint for the routers lower with Cisco than Juniper.

Those routers were picked because some features for the aforesaid products were equally good and worthwhile. And another very critical point was also that it Increases scalability when combined with an optional Cisco IOS XE Software Security license, and enables link security and VPN services.

  • More stable and better integrated in the network
  • Globally standardized and delivered
  • Every network engineer know how a Cisco router works
  • No explanation necessary if you use this vendor, because it is the number one in that use case
  • Huawei is just a copy of Cisco and therefore we buy the original hardware and software to work with

Cisco Routers are a better fit for my org. Juniper seemed to be the best comparison, but mainly we chose to remain with Cisco because our in-house knowledge was already there. We didn’t see a big enough difference in other options to make it worth the change.
