  • These routers are very good at performing 24x7! This is key to running an organization where employees are working 24x7.
  • The ZBFW feature works especially well to help lockdown and protect your network.
  • Having the ability to perform in-service upgrades is a key feature in keeping your network up at all times.
  • One room for improvement on these routers would be better QA testing on the software before it's released. We have had several IOS images that have had major bugs in them.

  • Routing performance is good.
  • WAN aggregation supporting multiple Gig speeds.
  • Firewalling via ESP mode.
  • Hardware level QoS.
  • ESP offload support all major features to offload load from RP.
  • Multi port 40G and 100G cards.
  • Performance above 200Gbps is not possible.
  • SIP/SPA module is very costly.

  • In most cases, the larger ASR routers such as the 1006 and 1009s have sufficient capabilities to be used as a Core network router.
  • The smaller ASRs such as the 1002 devices are best suited on the edge, capable of handling a limited number of connections due to the fixed chassis.
  • The ASR 1000 series routers can, as with most devices, improve with additional memory capacity and upgraded chip sets for faster processing.
  • There seems to be limitations on the number of routing sessions the smaller ASR devices can handle, which can be overcome with proper planning and placement within the network.

  • The routers have been very reliable with little to no down time.
  • They have provided the throughput needed by the organization.
  • Management of the routers and their ability to send advanced net-flow data have greatly increased our understanding of network performance and how applications are performing on the network.
  • Licensing on the routers is more complicated than it needs to be. We have the ASR routers along with ISR routers both have the license of the advanced service, however, on the ISR routers that license did not include the app-X feature needed to send the application specific net-flow data we wanted. It would be better if Cisco was consistence with the features included with licenses.
  • Some software patches are quite involved as there is a boot loaded and IOS that must be upgraded.

  • We use the firewall services which come inbuilt and are vital for a secured network.
  • It's a good spend of money due to the services offered with the dual configuration.
  • Performance and integration within Cisco products are up to par compared to market competitors.
  • The command line interface could be made better with adding more Unix shell features.
  • Cost could be a major concern if the desired throughput is not achieved.
  • For video streaming, the mid-sized packed based data could spike the latency, so an appropriate plan needs to be deployed for packet size.

  • For those who are used to Cisco, they are easy to use.
  • They interoperate well with other vendors. Everyone is compatible with Cisco.
  • Performance is excellent. I’ve never had a Cisco router that was unable to perform as Cisco says it will.
  • The CLI can sometimes be inconsistent. You get used to it, but could be better.
  • Programmability is hit and miss. Overall, newer code has better support for programmability.
  • Cisco’s pricing is relatively high. No one pays list price, so list prices are very high and can be off putting at first.
