Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Service Router with Application Experience (ISR-AX)

Resilient,Yet Technically Can Be Difficult To Implement On An Enterprise Level.

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

Easy implementation, great product.

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.

Cisco CSR is a useful product but can be buggy

Solution has been stable a is increasing in adoption scale

Cisco ISR G2

Easy way to combine voice and data

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.

Difficult implementation and maintenance, Buggy Code and a less than stellar experience

Extremely complicated to both deploy and maintain. Serious issues with code stability of WAAS - ended up deploying 3 different versions and had to roll back to old 5.5.7 code for successful deployment. Deployment had to be stalled while Cisco involved internal product teams for months to resolve issues. Cisco Prime is an inferior management product and APIC EM just doesnt work as advertised. In retrospect we should have gone another route.

Great Company / Partner to work with

Great assistance with solution design for our end user customers

Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN)

Good product but needs to be better supported by Cisco.

This was a new technology and the vendor had not had sufficient experience in proposing the right configuration and being able to debug some of the problems we encounered with the system architecture quickly enough.

No down time - Awesome!

Over all a great experience - very minimal down time.

Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN)

A solid system, but not as flexible as I was expecting.

The iWAN system was new and has had some limitations that I wasn't expecting. It didn't balance across WAN ports like I thought it would. Overall the hardware has been rock solid. The software has been OK. There have been more glitches than I would have expected from Cisco. Weird appliance reboots because of firmware glitches. If you don't know IOS CLI, you will need to rely on others to do the work and that can be frustrating after working with a lot of GUI appliances (firewall and the like). iWAN was not able to fix an underlying problem of low bandwidth. We should have dealt with that first.
