We use Cisco 831, 881, and 881w routers for small single computer sites. The 800 series used in Network Extension mode makes a great small office solution. enough ports for a PC, a printer and an IP Phone. The 800 series securely connect to our Cisco ASA headend by VPN over any internet transport available at the location.
We use the 800 series across all departments for any site location where we need a very small office.
The 800 series/ ASA combination makes locations financial feasible where where private lines would be much too expensive for the use case.
  • Connects local site to VPN headend
  • Securely adds a network subnet in remote locations
  • The security available in an inexpensive package makes these units a great value.
  • Programming can be complicated for new users
  • An easier VPN setup would be a good value add to this product
  • PoE for IP Phones requires an add-on daughter card
  • The daughter card add expense and requires that the 800 series unit be opened to install card
The [Cisco 800 Series Industrial ISR (IR 800)] is great when we need to add a small new site in a very short time.
Our previous experience with these units makes the roll-out of new sites quick and almost seamless.
The 800 series excels in locations where we want to tunnel all traffic back to the core site.
Split tunneling for "SD-WAN" type use is not as functional as in other products.

The Cisco Router Series 800 is used in all locations classified as small and medium, a total of 76 locations, providing end-to-end communication through DMVPN. We use ZPFW for security reasons too. The same router is also used for local internet output, making web access faster and more efficient. In the security layer we use the ZBFW solution. This router can be easily deployed due to its low cost and easy configuration.

  • Low cost
  • Fast configuration
  • Switch port
  • Remote branch
  • Workshops
  • Congress
The Cisco 800 series routers are completely suitable in locations up to medium port, where their bandwidth is sufficient for proper operation. For larger locations the routers of the 4000 series are already better, due to their operating characteristics. Throughout the routing scenario Cisco routers can be used, always observing the proposed design.

They are critical in connecting our 100 WAN sites and edge connectivity.
  • Once they are configured you can basically forget them until your (NMS) network management systems notify you of an issue
  • Simple EIGRP configuration
  • Super cost effective
  • Most are single power supply
  • If they aren't a full 19" 1U device you have to purchase rack ears separately from the device
  • VPN tunneling can be a bit of a configuration challenge
I think that there is a Cisco router for every deployment.
People have bad days and some things are deemed not critical enough to fix.
  • Online training
  • Self-taught
My experience is that there is always something that proves to be just a bit tedious to get figured out but once you do it is easily duplicated
Not every router can handle all situations and so you have to purchase the upgrade to do handle the new requirements.
