Overall Satisfaction with Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000)

Most Cisco shops use a strong Cisco branded switching and routing backbone. Our company is no different. About every 3 years we upgrade to the latest Cisco routers and the Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000) was our latest upgrade in the router sector. They have been implemented throughout the organization and are now being used to replace problematic voice routers as well.
  • Modular design allows for lots of expansion options
  • The voice module gives us full control over all our VOIP systems
  • The system integrates well with our Cisco management and monitoring tools
  • Third-party monitoring options can't get as much data from these boxes
  • CDP protocol is still mostly a proprietary protocol
  • Among the most costly integrated routers out there
  • ROI is high, as these things hardly ever need to be touched once set up
  • Time savings in reducing the amount of needed hardware to accomplish the same tasks
  • Gives our admins peace of mind when building out the network with Cisco gear

You generally will get a long life out of these devices as well as long runtime without requiring a maintenance window to reboot or fix.
