Cisco Enterprise Routers Review

A reliable internet gateway with effective routing policies

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is as an internet gateway.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that we can specify the routing policies for our traffic.

What needs improvement?

The cost of this solution is a little bit high compared to others.

Some of our customers have asked that this solution have a 10G connection.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had any complaints about the router going down.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of this solution is good.

We have customers with between thirty and fifty users and we have other customers who have between one hundred and one hundred and fifty users.

How are customer service and technical support?

Cisco's technical support is very good. I have used them for this solution, as well as for access points. I would rate their support an eight out of ten.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We perform the deployment and configuration of this solution for most of our customers. Many of them are not educated in Cisco technology. There are some customers who can handle it, but they still consult with us for advice.

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

This solution is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We have not done very much configuration with this solution because we only use it as an internet gateway and we also use the firewall for filtering and applying policies.

This product is very good but nothing can have ten out of ten.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten
