All our routers are Cisco routers and have been for many years. Cisco is still the de facto standard and have very high quality. From a technical perspective the internet is a very good resource for any troubleshooting you might need to do: there is a massive amount of documentation and experience to be found on the web regarding Cisco.
  • Documentation on Cisco Routers is abundant.
  • The web is a great resource for troubleshooting.
  • Speed is good on the routers.
  • Pricing is a little high.
  • No real negatives are further worth mentioning.
As Cisco is still the de facto standard for routers or even other network equipment, it is the brand to go to. Especially high-end usage is excellent. It might be a bit too expensive for smaller companies. But quality has a price, so Cisco is certainly always worth to have a look at.

I recently used two RV models of Cisco Routers, more precisely the RV042 and RV340. The main feature used is the VPN and in both it worked well. I believe most of those looking for and purchasing this line of Cisco Routers are looking to implement such functionality in their small and medium businesses.
  • Functional VPN with robust configuration options for small businesses.
  • Load balancing for WAN, adding excellent manageability to your network.
  • Dual WAN.
  • Firmware improvements as the routers (at least the models I used) can sometimes crash while setting up.
  • In two RV042 that I had to configure and monitor, I had problems where they stopped working properly (crashes, loss of settings, bug). In another model, the VPN did not connect and only after a router restart did it work.
  • Three WAN options on RV line.
Cisco Routers is well suited for small businesses that need to connect branch offices via VPN, WAN redundancy allowing business continuity, and Internet link load balancing.

They are used in our distribution, core, and peering layers.
  • Route packets.
  • Store prefixes.
  • There are inconsistencies in syntax and feature set across families.
  • The recommended code releases are usually way behind the release schedule.
  • Catastrophic bugs can cause issues with the most benign of changes.
The best use case for Cisco over other vendors is their training and certification programs, which are the de facto standard. If you only have experience with Cisco gear and don't want to expand your horizons, then Cisco is obviously going to be the choice.
