We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"It is definitely scalable. It can handle a lot more traffic and group work compared to any other products that I've evaluated. It could easily scale a lot more than what I'm doing right now.""The bandwidth and throughput are pretty good.""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.""It connects all the accounts with the weaknesses, and this is what we were looking for. Also, it connects with the on-premise side.""It seems pretty stable. We have never had any issues with it.""It handles stress very well. We have not reached a point of needing to worry about its capabilities.""It allowed us to create a more secure VPN than we would have been able to do without it.""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."

"The routing protocol is the solution's most valuable aspect."

More ExtremeRouting Pros »

"It could grow or adapt to changes in the cloud. For example, cloud does not support autoscaling. When people want to grow, they have to do manual activities.""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.""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.""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.""It is too complex. It is not easy to set up, even with the documentation that they provided. It is a little confusing.""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.""I would like the ability to moderate between devices on-premise to off-premise. This would be a vast improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cost is a big factor. We would like to see the price reduced.""We would prefer to go through the vendor instead of AWS, as we have a relationship with the vendor and can get discounts directly from them. Going through the vendor, it is much cheaper for us. Though, we would still keep it hosted on AWS.""The licensing model is good with this appliance: Bring Your Own License (BYOL).""We never buy the product on the AWS Marketplace. We only download it. We always use BYOL. We never buy the license in the AWS Marketplace, because it's very expensive.""Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was easy. It was almost a one-click process to purchase CSR.""The product is too expensive on the AWS Marketplace.""The should make the Dynamic Multipoint VPN solution more affordable.""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."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The most valuable feature is the SNMP traps that I use to monitor the router and the availability of the network.
Top Answer: The version of this solution that we are using does not support the LISP protocol. The new versions support LISP, which helps with the aggregation of routing across the landings.
Top Answer: 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… more »
