Overall Satisfaction with Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 800)

Cisco 890 ISRs is one of the most common platforms supporting smaller sites within in our network.
It provides wired and wifi connectivity between branches and HQ.
  • Routing, switching, wifi support etc.
  • It is a very versatile platform deployed in many of our locations.
  • Great solution for networks with an on-the-go setup.
  • Being one of the most versatile routing/switching platforms available, it fulfills most functions one would need in a compact appliance.
  • I have not experienced lack of functionality in any areas we use the appliance for.
  • One small feature I would like to have is 19" rack mount.
  • Rich functionality in a compact appliance at very reasonable price point.
It is too bad that Cisco 890 has been announced EOL as it is one of the most versatile platforms used within our environment.
In order to support wifi functionality well, It is well suited for it to be deployed close to the users. One additional feature it could support would be a connector for an external wifi antenna.
