Find out what your peers are saying about Cisco Cloud Services Router vs. Cisco Enterprise Routers and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
372,124 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most important feature is that it is designed for mobile vehicle communication in harsh conditions.
It provides peace of mind because it is a stable product that you aren't going to lose sleep over at night wondering if it will be running or not.
It integrates well with the other products we're using. We have it with multiple windows like Palo Alto, Arista and it easily integrated with them.
It allowed us to create a more secure VPN than we would have been able to do without it.
It handles stress very well. We have not reached a point of needing to worry about its capabilities.
It seems pretty stable. We have never had any issues with it.
It connects all the accounts with the weaknesses, and this is what we were looking for. Also, it connects with the on-premise side.
AWS has a reference architecture to enable the Cisco routers in high availability and Transit VPC. This is a very powerful router and can enable us to use Transit VPC in AWS, and this is a very powerful feature that we use.
Most of the hardware is very stable.
Cisco has one of the best products in terms of routing because of the protocols in which they provide.
It has provided us a more secure environment, especially the firewall. We've had multiple attempts of network intrusion which have been defeated due to the firewall rules in place.
This solution helps us with our inter-network constitution, and that works for us.
I extensively used site-to-site VPNs, access control, etc., linking remote sites to the central location to create a highly distributed organization.
Its routers are versatile, reliable, and capable.
I would like to see better security, where there are more access controls and data confidentiality.
I would like the ability to moderate between devices on-premise to off-premise. This would be a vast improvement.
They have an online registration that happens after they pick up block months. If they could decrease to yearly or something, sometimes the device is not cell phone accessible. That becomes an issue or challenge for us. If that can be improved, that would be really great.
It is too complex. It is not easy to set up, even with the documentation that they provided. It is a little confusing.
The ease of use within the AWS environment needs to improve. Sometimes, it is very esoteric in how you use it. Therefore, you have to learn to use it, then you are able to.
I would like some deployment examples and guides specific to AWS VPCs and how to separate your subnets. Then, how they tie-in with the Internet gateway and any NAT services that we are running on our VPC. This would be extremely helpful.
It does the job, but it's not cloud native. It could be even better, like having a single pane of glass and being less expensive.
Technical support could be better. I am missing a single pane of glass, where I can see all the connections, etc.
If they can negate or reduce the modem delay, that would be great.
In terms of room for improvement, I think that there is a need for additional administration.
Their support has room for improvement. The regional agents are not that great.
The cost is prohibitive.
Recently, there seems to be a lot of people who are leaning towards Juniper CLI, which is easier to pick up.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is good for what it offers.
Purchasing the product on the AWS Marketplace was very simplistic. Our organization was trying to centralize our billing costs, and simplicity was best.
The pricing is fine, though it might have been cheaper going through a partner or doing a direct buy.
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was easy; click a button and you have it.
The cost needs improvement. It is very expensive through the AWS Marketplace.
The price is a little high, more than what we wanted to pay. This is one area where we would like to understanding how the price could be brought down a bit more.
Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace was very simple. We went through the AWS Marketplace because it was the easiest way to get the product up and running very quickly.
The should make the Dynamic Multipoint VPN solution more affordable.
Cisco is mid-tier in terms of pricing and quite affordable by most enterprises.
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 have to look at another solution.
It is a costly solution.
