Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Routers
The router was used by our organization to provide a stable connection. Its was being used across the company, although it a smaller company with less than 20 individuals. It addressed the problem of having a stable internet connection in order to stay connected with our data in real time.
- Stable connection.
- Good for small business.
- Nice user interface.
- Slight lag when switching screens.
- Configuration is a little slow.
- Menu structure could be improved.
Although Cisco provides a broad range of networking equipment (access points, switches, security devices, etc.) compatibility with other devices was something that was factored while procuring Cisco routers. We needed to have something in place that would enable the office to stay connected with the option of being wireless or via ethernet.
Our organization has benefited from Cisco routers being designed so that they provide threat protection and secure our network. From areas like providing us with a firewall and protecting against threats to being able to restrict access to certain websites in order to boost productivity. This router has been quite reliable.
The Cisco routers have been able to provide continuous access to our applications and data throughout the office. Being able to stay connected to applications in real time anywhere in the office while staying connected to devices like the printer. We have a dozen people using the network at any given time without any issues.
We chose the Cisco routers over the competition because they fit the bill in terms of what we needed and checked off all the boxes. For example, being able to support a small office without any areas of limited connectivity; a stable internet connection that would not get bogged down; security features to keep our data safe.
This router is well suited for smaller organizations, our company had less than 20 people and it seemed to work just fine. There weren't any areas where the connection was limited. It provided benefits like firewall and was fairly straightforward to navigate and setup. However the interface could be cleaned up a little bit.
