We have mainly used the ASR9000s to take the place of older models and devices such as the GSR and CRS model routers. The GSRs have long been End Of Life and are no longer supported by Cisco. The CRS is a capable device but does not offer the versatility of the ASR family of routers.

Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Juniper was more security/less routing and Cisco was more routing/less security. Redback was Ericsson which is easy when creating VRFs known as contexts. When doing show command it would give you all the information within that context. In Cisco you need to perform 3 or more commands to get the same info.

Management is more comfortable with Cisco gear due to familiarity. The old adage that "Nobody was ever fired for IBM" translates perfectly to Cisco: "Nobody was ever fired for buying Cisco." In this case, our hands were forced into making a hardware upgrade. With a big leap like this, it makes sense to do a bake-off and compare and contrast between vendors, but at the end of the day, it's all about what gives the decision-makers warm and fuzzy feelings.

From the performance point of view I have not noticed any issues in our environment for this. From the operation point of view [there] was a learning [curve] to the new IOS when we used Juniper routers, but not really an issue after the first installations.

  • Cisco 5500 Series Network Convergence System (NCS 5500)
We have replaced our ASR 9000 with NCS 5500. The ASR 9000 was able to handle the features we needed better than the NCS. We had to move our layer 2 down to Nexus switches.

The Cisco routers provide a similar administrative interface with the rest of our Cisco network hardware. This reduced staff training to support the hardware.
