Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Cisco has one of the best products in terms of routing because of the protocols in which they provide.""Most of the hardware is very stable.""The most valuable feature is that we can specify the routing policies for our traffic.""We achieve good performance in our data center.""The routing feature is the solution's most valuable aspect.""The VPN is the most valuable feature of this solution. The basic clients who don't use the VPN use it mostly for connectivity.""The most valuable features of this solution are MPLS, BGP, and VRF.""The solution is very stable. I have not seen any downtime due to the product freezing or anything like that. It performs well and hasn't required reboots unless it's to troubleshoot with a support service provider needing configuration. It doesn't overheat and it's on 24/7."

Cons
"In terms of room for improvement, I think that there is a need for additional administration.""If they can negate or reduce the modem delay, that would be great.""Some of our customers have asked that this solution have a 10G connection.""We would like to see the security improved.""The solution needs to offer some security features in a future release.""The pricing could be improved.""I would like to see the setup time reduced.""If I only have one LAN port in which I want to connect more than one device, I have to buy an add-on card so that I can have two LAN ports. The smaller devices and low-end routers have about four LAN ports. This solution is a high-end device but has only one. It would be preferable if they offered more LAN ports."

"Compatibility with other platforms could be improved.""Better management tools are needed."
