In my opinion, we do not like the Meraki MX compared to Cisco Routers. It is not flexible enough for our needs and is only really viable for very simple east to west traffic. From my experience, for a "Firewall" it has an awful policy management interface that manages to be so featureless but so confusing at the same time.

  • Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000) and Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)
The main reason to go with Cisco Routers is reliability. Other than that most engineers are certified to operate these routers. Other reasons are good technical support, quality community and familiarity/experience within the industry of networking. It is by default product to go with in many situations.

Cisco has been the top vendor while selecting the router, they are always on the list. Cisco has been very up-to-date with current market trends and technology. Cisco has better material available over the Internet, so Cisco has better competency compared with any other vendor, which really helped in selecting the Cisco Routers, as they have a lot of knowledge resources available. Cisco certifications are also one of the great factors when making the router selection. Cisco is continuously working on the updates and technologies to have their routers up to speed. Cisco support is way better than any other networking vendor.

Netgear and Dlink wireless routers also support cloud-based management, however, Cisco is the first one to implement a cloud-based centralized management portal. Cisco Meraki routers provide enhanced network security using Meraki Air Marshal wireless intrusion and prevention system. The devices support the latest wireless standards such as ODFMA Mu-Mimo, 802.11ax, 802.3af POE, band steering, and hardware-accelerated encryption. Apart from dual-band radios (2.5 and 5 GHz) to provide connectivity to clients, the devices implement a dedicated radio for security and RF management and another Bluetooth radio for beacon and BLE scanning.

Cisco Routers have better performance and are more efficient when working. They are friendlier in their configuration environment and in turn, their TAC service is superior to that of other brands, and at the same level of documentation it is more accessible than that of other vendors

Cisco routers are great and are the industry standard. They have proven their ability to last and [continually] provide support for their devices. You can go into a lot of IT closets and see old Cisco switches and routers. Why? because they are workhorses and they last. Their compatibility [with] other systems and hardware makes them hard to beat.

Mikrotik Routers are very inexpensive and lightweight routers. They support many features that enterprise routers support like routing protocols, ACLs, Nating, radius server-based authentication, GUI management, and many more. However, it is not built to handle large amounts of traffic, and it is better suited for small businesses. On the other hand, Cisco Routers are built for large enterprises, and they perform very well under heavy loads of traffic.

I haven't used other routers in my career. We evaluated Palo Alto but quickly realized we needed to stay with Cisco, as they never gave us a reason to change. Palo Alto also was a much greater financial investment we were not willing to take, along with the learning curve to support their hardware.

The Meraki devices are much simpler to manage and configure than any of their other devices. Being able to manage all devices at once makes it easier to detect a problem. The monthly subscription fee is the hardest part to look past, as it's a lot more costly to use Meraki equipment compared to buying other Cisco products with cash and using them for many years.

Important reason is the certified and qualified engineers to support the Cisco devices compared to other vendors in the market. Cisco Routers are easy to manage over a long time compared to Juniper devices. Cisco SDM tool also helps for small sites to manage these routers. Continuous iOS support is another important factors to keep the devices in good secure state.

The Cisco routers cannot compare to a dedicated firewall, especially an NGFW, though a firewall could certainly have performed the routing functions. Primarily chosen to maximize interoperability with Cisco IOS switches inside the firewall.
