Cisco Cloud Services Router Review

Provides us with secure 3G/4G LTE WAN cellular and wireless LAN connectivity for mobile environments

What is our primary use case?

Gateway communication for IoT activities is our primary use case. We were looking for a stable mobility solution.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides us with highly secure, reliable, and easy-to-manage 3G/4G LTE WAN cellular and wireless LAN connectivity for mobile environments.

It has delivered high-speed secure VPN services with High Availability, strong firewall protection, Application Visibility and Control, and more. This AMI runs Cisco IOS XE technology features (ASR 1000 and ISR 4000 series) and uses AWS instances with a direct I/O path for higher and consistent performance, as well as 2x performance with IMIX packets.

What is most valuable?

The most important feature is that it is designed for mobile vehicle communication in harsh conditions. It is also:

  • easily and rapidly deployed
  • highly available
  • highly secure
  • reliable.

Also, in terms of integration and configuration of the product in our AWS environment, it has 1700/2100 MHz (Band 4 AWS) frequencies.

What needs improvement?

Cisco should improve on the operation due to a clock signal component failure. I would also like to see better security, where there are more access controls and data confidentiality.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution. I have put high workloads on it and it has been very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For my environment it is a good solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is good for what it offers.

What other advice do I have?

It integrates with multiple solutions but I have only tried it with AWS solutions.

I would rate it at eight out of ten. It is a good solution but they have to improve on the security.
