I am using this personally at my employer in order to simulate topologies and troubleshoot technologies.
  • Easy and available to download with a CCO account.
  • Full-featured router platform.
  • Can run as many instances as you have memory to handle.
  • No issues so far running in VMWare player 14.0.
  • Would be nice if the license expiration simply limited throughput rather than removing features.
  • Better compatibility with VMWare player would be nice. Specifically, making sure you open the serial console almost immediately after turning on the VM.
I've had as many as six VMs running concurrently on a laptop with 32 gigs. This makes it easy to lab up many routing/VPN scenarios. Great study and practice tool. This makes it easy to experiment with technologies or topologies that it would otherwise be difficult to do. How many people can say they've got a half-dozen or more full-featured routers available and the power to run them.

They provide a huge benefit and scalability to our IP transit networking. We also use them as for wan and QoS.
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
  • BGP
  • Scalability
  • Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR)
  • Netflow
  • More integration with the switching
  • A dynamic approach for software updates
  • More automation features and APIs
Well Suited:
  • IP transit and routing in general.

    They handle the MPLS, QoS and private routing superbly.
