I would rate cisco 9 out of 10. Cisco is the network equipment leader. It introduces new features; it's the trend maker. The trade-off is cost. Cisco is highly recommended, subject to the availability of funds. It's all about the resources you have and how much you want to invest. We are the customer. However, we are also studying Fortinet and its comparisons and things like those to finalize the procurement process.

We're a Cisco partner. We use the service cloud routers as well. In terms of versions, the company has recently changed from IOS to XE. We're using the latest version of the solution. We're deployed both on-premises and on private clouds. We deploy this for our clients, and therefore the deployment model depends on their requirements. I'd recommend the solution. If a company decides to go with a Cisco router, they are making a wise decision. In general, I would rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

I would recommend this solution to others, but I would ask them to buy from the channel, they shouldn't buy from the market. Because once they buy it from the channel, they do have a lot of benefits that they can derive from it. I would rate Cisco Enterprise Routers an eight out of ten.

Cisco is the number one brand in India. I would recommend this product. Cisco is a good product that is stable. However, because of pricing, customers go with other brands. I would rate Cisco a nine out of ten.

Overall, it's a really good product. Anyone who decides to use a light product in the market that is not reliable, the security would be risky. Cisco enterprise routers are more secure and easy to operate. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is that it is very easy to use, and there is a large community to support you. I recommend checking the licensing because sometimes when you buy the product, you may forget to check the licensing and warranty information. We have seen that most clients work with third-parties when it comes to a monitoring solution for Cisco routers. In summary, this is a good product and one that I recommend. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

You can't compare Cisco to any other gadget or any other solution. They're the best in the market, hands down. I have no choice other than giving them full marks of ten out of ten. I'd recommend Cisco to everyone.

I'd recommend the solution. Once you plug it in, you can basically forget about it because there are never any issues. It just works, and that's great. I'd rate it ten out of ten.

My advice to others considering this solution would be not to do what we did. Don't go with the all-in-one solution. Buy a basic product that Cisco certifies is more than capable of routing the traffic that you expect on the network, then get a decent firewall behind the router to really take care of security, content filtering, ACL and all the rest that a firewall does. It could be a bit expensive, of course, because you're buying two products instead of one. But what you can get out of it is much more than we get now from this Cisco solution. It's not by any chance that when ISPs all over the world deliver an internet access line, they don't give you the top of the line support equipment. They don't push you to buy Cisco because it is the best. They give you something really basic because it's not supposed to do anything else than routing traffic from and to the internet. They expect you to have a firewall behind that router to manage all the rest of what a firewall is supposed to handle. Those providers know exactly what they're doing. What I have learned from my experience with this product is to do more to check for something else as alternatives and compare products without just accepting a reputation and advice from the vending company's experts. You might not need to buy something expensive to really accomplish what you need to do.

We operate a hotel and we have clients who are logging into the WiFi all the time. We need to give them good connectivity. Sometimes we get as many as 500 connections and we know that with Cisco unless the service provider lets us down, the device won't fail. It's a very good product. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it ten out of ten.

Buy official equipment and services from Cisco and you will have fully qualified technical support. There are no limitations, you should go forward with the solution. There is always something new being developed and it is always growing. This is a company that is very innovative. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

I would rate it a nine out of ten. Nothing is perfect and Cisco is always developing and improving the product. I would recommend it. I sell the product and I would recommend this one as an internet solution. I get everything I need from this solution.

We're mostly using the 4000 series of the solution. In terms of advice, I'd say users need to be clear about customer requirements to avoid overpaying for features they don't need. They should take care to select the proper router type and use the proper license. For deployment, they need a high level of understanding, for the implementation and configuration. They need to be prepared for all scenarios to be network ready. Something might turn off, for example, so they need to be prepared for those instances in order to properly handle them. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

The Cisco name guarantees that it is a good product and it meets most of the demands. We expect that Cisco DNA will solve the problems that we had in terms of security. It was quite difficult before, with the 802.1X. Now, it is more flexible. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

In one or two years, once SD-WAN is more mature, we may switch from our traditional routers and protocols to be completely integrated with SD-WAN. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to consider the routing that is needed because it can change the way you set up and deploy. There are differences between MPLS, internet routing, and office connectivity. SD-WAN will also be something to look into. This is a good solution, but it's not perfect. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We have not done very much configuration with this solution because we only use it as an internet gateway and we also use the firewall for filtering and applying policies. This product is very good but nothing can have ten out of ten. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten

Most of the time, I use the command-line interface. The downtime for a switch automatically taking over for another one has been reduced. It used to take five or six minutes for the jobs on the other resource tree, but it is faster now. My advice for people implementing this solution is to test it. Try new things that you have never tried. Cisco has support, which is the most important thing. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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.

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