Benefits

The Cisco family of Integrated Services Routers and its unified communications services provide the intelligence that removes barriers to collaboration by enhancing linkages to people, devices, and applications. They provide:

  • Investment protection: Multi-service support provides the ability to repurpose assets as network needs change. An example includes moving from a time-division-multiplexing (TDM) gateway to session border control using the same platform.
  • Unparalleled connectivity and interoperability: Cisco ISRs support the vast majority of protocols, interfaces, and CODECs to provide connectivity to more than 90 percent of the world's PBXs and PSTN connection points. They interoperate with PBXs, IP PBXs, service providers, and analog endpoints.
  • Superior end-user experience: Provide background noise reduction, acoustic shock prevention, echo cancellation, and more. Priority based routing, Call Admission Control/Resource Reservation Protocol (CAC/RSVP), and, and media monitoring help deliver high-quality voice every time.
  • An intelligent path to SIP trunking: The integration of Cisco Unified Border Element into Cisco ISRs helps ensure a migration to SIP trunking that fits your business needs. CUBE on Cisco ISR supports TDM, mixed TDM and SIP, or full SIP environments on a single platform.
  • Integrated security protects against internal and external threats while maintaining high levels of network performance.
