Overall Satisfaction with Cisco 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers (ASR 1000)

The equipment is implemented between our two Data Centers (Main and Backup) and allows us to establish a tunnel layer 2 on layer 3, which has allowed us to improve response times for contingency issues, by being able to raise servers in our alternate site, as if they were in the main.
  • Establish a tunnel layer 2 on layer 3.
  • Solution for service recovery events.
  • Overlays configuration issues when interface disconnects occur.
  • Visual alarms due to no connection of interfaces.
  • Improvement in service recovery times.
  • Ease of retrieval of services in a modular way.
The truth was we have not evaluated another option.
We have received training on the equipment, which has made us add more networks on our own, we provide first level support, we validate the publication of the equipment and we can satisfy the needs of our internal clients in terms of the prompt recovery of the affected services.
All our modular contingency service exercises use this equipment, it allows us to perform this type of exercises very easily, in a controlled and effective way. It is used at least once a month for these types of events. It also allows configuration replication in computers that are under the same model.
