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.

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
