Cisco routers can use any transport over any combination of IP/Ethernet and TDM (E1/T1) infrastructures (copper, microwave, or optical), and allow you to reliably and securely connect users, devices, and branch office locations across a diverse set of WAN transport links.

Gain more control and visibility, centralize management, and respond to business needs faster while increasing IT efficiency by deploying integrated network services on demand, wherever you need them.

Cisco Enterprise Routing Portfolio

Improve the user experience with agility and advanced security

Superior user experience

Cisco’s routing solutions, with integrated software and hardware, offer bandwidth optimization, application acceleration, and intelligent caching. Achieve application high availability by monitoring path performance, and apply that intelligence to select the best path for a given application. You can efficiently load-balance across paths to deliver on application-level Service-Level Agreements (SLAs).

With an application-aware WAN, you can deploy business-intent policies across the entire network, with no probes or additional hardware.

Advanced security

Cisco’s converged branch platform integrates real-time contextual awareness and security automation. Cisco provides industry-leading real-time threat intelligence and prevention, malware protection, embedded firmware protections, Evaluation Assurance Level 4 (EAL4)-certified perimeter defense, and web security. Protect sensitive enterprise communications with site-to-site and remote-access VPN technologies, including DMVPN, GET VPN, FlexVPN, and SSL VPN. Secure your “in motion” data with NIST-approved line-rate encryption.

Enable faster anomaly detection and deeper forensics for internal and external threats with comprehensive network visibility and behavior-based analytics. Cisco provides secure processes and systems you can trust.
