Effectively interfaces our public and private networks, but our version does not support the LISP protocol

What is our primary use case?

We have a public and a private network, and we use the Cisco CSR to route traffic between them. In our private network, we have a Cisco Nexus 1000V virtualization switch that works with VMware. Our goal was to have our two LANs work together as a layer two network, and this solution forms the gateway between them. Our CSR is set up such that one end is connected to the internet, whereas the other end connects to our public network. We have a route between the CSR and our Nexus 1000V, which is directly connected to the other switch that is included with VMware.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the SNMP traps that I use to monitor the router and the availability of the network."
  • "You can use this router in a scalable solution but it has its limitations."

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I surely recommend. My advice to anybody who is researching this solution is to consider scale. You can use this router in a scalable solution but it has its limitations. Overall, it works really well and does not have any large bugs or issues with it. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

A stable product that offers enhanced security via machine learning assessment tools

What is our primary use case?

My team is in charge of auditing the security infrastructure of these routers. I perform penetration testing and blue teaming in pursuit of this effort. Our customers for this product are typically government departments. In the current project, we are designing smart cities, in which these routers are part of the infrastructure.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the artificial intelligence assessment models."
  • "There should be a system in place to help existing users make an easier transition to the newer interfaces."

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product and I recommend it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
