How has it helped my organization?

It has provided us a more secure environment, especially the firewall. We've had multiple attempts of network intrusion which have been defeated because of the firewall rules in place.

What needs improvement?

Their support has room for improvement. The regional agents are not that great. The devices can be a bit of an energy hog. We would like to see a more durable power supply system because being in a third world country we have frequent power outages and it takes a bit of time for our generators and… more»

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

Our issues are basically currency related. The licensing is in dollars and the dollar is steadily rising. We've had an increase in the licensing fee due to the simple reason that the exchange rate is almost over 40%. That creates a major issue. If the currency devaluation doesn't stabilize, we may… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone outside the US to consider the issues that we're facing right now, the currency devaluation and licensing fees. I would rate it a nine out of ten because we haven't had any major issues with it.

What needs improvement?

In terms of room for improvement, I think that there is a need for additional administration. We have seen other products, such as the Cisco Email Security Appliance and the Cisco Web Security… more»

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

Cisco is mid-tier in terms of pricing and quite affordable by most enterprises.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Cisco is very a popular vendor in this country, so I have been using Cisco products all along, in terms of routing. I have not been exposed to other technologies.

What other advice do I have?

Mostly, this is a very good product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are some people trying to introduce other technology such as Check Point and Juniper, but our Enterprise customers rely on Cisco.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the configuration that is involved with iOS. In addition, it is very durable. It does not have downtime.

What needs improvement?

It comes with 3-1 default box and other parts. You have to buy additional lamp parts, which adds to the cost if they could, but affect the number of parts with the default configuring.

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

The pricing is a huge issue. I had to convince my company to purchase this solution. It is very expensive, and prohibitive.

What other advice do I have?

I think the network backup for this solution is solid, and is worthwhile for any company to consider.

What do you think of Cisco Enterprise Routers?

What is our primary use case?

Installed at many locations using a hub-and-spoke design to connect remote sites to central locations over GRE tunnels.

How has it helped my organization?

Its routers are versatile, reliable, and capable.  I find their user interface easy to use in getting simple to complex tasks completed, even after not using it for a while.

What is most valuable?

I extensively used site-to-site VPNs, access control, etc., linking remote sites to the central location to create a highly distributed organization.

What needs improvement?

Recently, there seems to be a lot of people who are leaning towards Juniper CLI, which is easier to pick up.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
