Cons
"Cisco Enterprise Routers could improve by making their solution more user-friendly. Currently, users need to have extensive knowledge of networking to use them because there is only a command-line interface for the configuration. They should add a graphical interface to allow junior users guidance and more flexibility when doing the configuration.""The solution could improve by having multiple features inclusive of the router, such as a free firewall and VPN. Additionally, it should be a generic box that can act as a router, firewall, and switch.""Tends to have a short life cycle.""It would be better if Cisco had a User Interface (UI) that we could configure from a web browser. Right now, we only have a Graphical User Interface (GUI). I would like to see a new UI with a dashboard for configuration in the next release.""I am happy with the price of Cisco Enterprise Routers, but they could offer more discounts to their customers.""Longer duration of support.""The solution is not easy to manage for people that do not have the experience.""Depending on the customer, the initial setup could be complex."
