Cisco Enterprise Routers Review

Good lifespan, easily installed and managed, with good support

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for network communication and connectivity.

What is most valuable?

They are good. They have a good lifespan and they are easily managed.

The information is readily available for all of the products.

Also, they have local support available, as well as principal support, which is also easy to get.

What needs improvement?

Prices could be better.

I would like to see better reporting and also integration with other products.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Cisco Enterprise Routers for more than five years.

We have the version that was used at that time, as well as the newest versions.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable product. We have 12 users in five locations.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It is easy to install.

It does take some time because you need to do the configuration. 

It can take a day to deploy. It may take longer if it is a complex environment, or if it is a simple environment, it can be done faster.

What about the implementation team?

We have an internal team, who works with the implementation partner.

The implementation partner starts with the base configuration, and then they draw on our internet team to work with them.

Eventually, it falls under our team management.

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

It's expensive and the pricing could be improved.

The license is paid yearly.

What other advice do I have?

We plan to continue using this solution. I would recommend Cisco Enterprise Routers to others who are interested in using them.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
