Cisco Enterprise Routers Review

A reliable product that you can set up and leave alone

What is most valuable?

The best part is that once you set up Cisco routers, you just leave them alone. You don't have to do much unless you have to change the configuration. We hardly have issues with Cisco equipment and I believe that reliability is the best part of Cisco.

What needs improvement?

Compared to equipment by other vendors, such as Check Point, the physical size of the units is bigger. A smaller footprint would be an improvement. 

We sometimes experience delays when a router is processing that requires us to reboot it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Cisco Enterprise Routers for more than 20 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Cisco's equipment is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product and we have a couple of hundred users.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward. We have Cisco certified engineers here, and they take care of that. The deployment takes maybe a couple of hours, and we're done.

What about the implementation team?

We have an in-house team of four or five people who deploy and maintain our products, including this one. 

What other advice do I have?

This is definitely a product that I can recommend to others.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
