Pros
"What I like the most is that it's an easy plug and play device to work with.""It's easy to use, and there is a lot of information available on the internet.""Cisco Enterprise Routers are simple. Everything is in a proper manner. You don't need to upgrade or do other things on a daily basis. Cisco sends you the updates, and they are automatically updated. They are good.""Solution is stable.""They are the best in failover switches. Their product line is excellent.""They have a good lifespan and they are easily managed.""I am pleased with the technical support.""I think Cisco Enterprise Routers are excellent."

Cons
"Depending on the customer, the initial setup could be complex.""An area of improvement would be the way the licenses are managed because, at the moment, you pay for a license for each router as opposed to paying a once-off cost.""The price could be better""Over time things have changed where Cisco has not invested in improving the orchestration and simplifying it for people who do not want to get into the details. Cisco has not gone into that focus.""It can be very expensive, sometimes, to do the jump to the next router for your needs.""While the commands are easy to understand, and you will find a mixture, if you put a question mark on them then it will create problems.""Other products are coming to the market that are not as expensive, Cisco should reduce their price to be more comparable.""Compared to equipment by other vendors, such as Check Point, the physical size of the units is bigger."

More Cisco Enterprise Routers Cons →

"The solution needs to offer SDN features.""Better documentation to assist with implementation would be helpful.""If you are setting up a site-to-site VPN between a Juniper and Cisco device then you may encounter some issues.""In terms of improvement, I would like for it to effectively protect against the broadcast storms, multicast storms, and DDoS attacks.""In terms of what could be improved, they could extend the software warranty to be for its lifetime, as well. At the moment, the software warranty is limited, I think to one year.""The web interface can be improved.""One thing that the product can do better is clustering. Rather than just having two of them, it would help if there was one cluster to extend to more notes in the cluster itself.""The third-level customer support coming from Juniper itself could be much better. To get assistance from Juniper, we sometimes have to wait for weeks and months. I don't really appreciate that. Their support should be faster."
