Generally, in the past, we are satisfied with routers from Cisco. The R&D of new hardware has been satisfactory as to not be a concern. But, the new 4K routers IOS have been one bug after another with serial interfaces, UCM bugs and clocking bugs. We have stopped all deployments with 40+ sitting in a stock room due to intermittent failures in the currently 2-3 deployed sites. We were looking to enhance our remote site capabilities with a better net flow, optimisation, NBAR enhancements and IWAN, at this time, we will pause and wait until we have a more stable device.

We have a love/hate with both Cisco and their ISR series. We've found the previous gen of HW (18xx) ws actually more powerful from a compute standpoint. Also, if you don't have a cookie cutter break/fix issue then it's almost impossible to get support.

We received excellent support from Cisco during this implementation.

The implementation of the 4331 router with IWAN installed with relative ease. The utilization of the legacy Cisco contrller software did not work with the code levels requried on the 4331. We have since learned of a recall on the routers causing us to hlt futher implementatins and replace all existing routers. Cisco is willing to assist with the costs for the replacement.

As an early adopter of iWAN and PFR, we experienced performance problems and an number of bugs that we did not experience during the pilot phase. Part of the problem was that Cisco sold a solution that was not quite ready. We were given a baseline of the G2 ISR routers, like the 2951, but found that the demands on the cpu were too high. It would have been better to just know, at the beginning, that we needed to step up to the ISR4K.

Changing of key resources during implementation caused delays to the overall schedule to obtain qualified help from Cisco

We replaced a Cisco 3845 with a Cisco 4431. The 3845 was reaching the end of its usable life. The 4431 was a drop in replacement which we saw improved network performance from the robust hardware.

The Cisco ISR G2 provides a good combo of innovative features and backwards copatibliity. It is a very cost effective solution. I especially like the ability to combine voice and data service onto a single hardware platform, reducing overall TCO.
