Even though it is somewhat older than some of the latest versions, it is still capable of offering a great combination of features to any user out there. It is one of the best options of routers that are available on the market and the series in general. This is the router to go for if you want a mix of both the recent past features and a bit of the latest router technology. Today, it is still sought after by many customers despite the coming of the latest Cisco router versions such as those belonging to the series.

Overall, the Cisco Series offer unparalleled total cost of ownership savings and network agility through the intelligent integration of market leading security, unified communications, wireless, and application services.

In addition to the support of a wide range of wireless and wired connectivity options supported on Cisco Series, Cisco W offers integration of IEEE All Cisco Series Integrated Services Routers offer embedded hardware encryption acceleration, optional firewall, intrusion prevention, and application services. Figure 1. Designed for scalability, the modular architecture of these platforms enables you to grow and adapt with your business needs.

Table 1 lists the business benefits of the Cisco Table 1. The Universal image contains all of the Cisco IOS technology sets which can be activated with a software license.

This allows your business to quickly deploy advanced features without downloading a new IOS image. Additionally, larger default memory is included to support the new capabilities. Cisco EnergyWise technology will be supported in the future. The modular architecture is designed to support expanding customer requirements, increased bandwidth, and fully integrated power distribution to modules supporting Table 2 lists the architectural features and benefits of the Cisco Series.

Table 2. Modularity Features and Benefits The Cisco provides significantly enhanced modular capabilities refer to Table 2 offering investment protection for customers. Most of the modules available on previous generations of Cisco routers, such as the Cisco ISR, are supported on the Cisco Additionally, modules used on the Cisco can easily be interchanged with other Cisco routers to provide maximum investment protection.

Taking advantage of common interface cards across a network greatly reduces the complexity of managing inventory requirements, implementing large network rollouts, and maintaining configurations across a variety of branch-office sizes.

Table 3. Full EnergyWise support will be available in future software releases. Each slot can support high-speed storage densities upgradeable to 4GB in density. USB 2. The USB ports enable another mechanism secure token capabilities and storage. You can enable advanced features by activating a software license on the Universal image.

In previous generations of access routers, these feature sets required you to download a new software image. Technology packages and feature licenses, enabled through the Cisco software licensing infrastructure, simplify software delivery and decrease the operational costs of deploying new features.

At each stage in the product lifecycle, Cisco ONE Software helps make buying, managing, and upgrading your network and infrastructure software easier. Designed to meet the requirements of the branch office, these platforms provide a complete solution with voice, security, mobility, and data services.

Businesses enjoy the benefit by deploying a single device that meets all their needs and save on capital and operational expenses. The Cisco IOS Software Security technology package license for the Cisco Series offers a wide array of common security features such as advanced application inspection and control, threat protection, and encryption architectures for enabling more scalable and manageable VPN networks in one solution set. The Cisco Series offers native hardware-based encryption acceleration to provide greater IPSec throughput with less overhead for the router processor when compared with software-based encryption solutions.

The Cisco Unified Wireless Network addresses critical points of potential failure and helps enable resiliency and survivability for WLANs at remote locations and branch offices. This solution protects the WLAN by providing fast recovery from a variety of faults that may occur. IEEE Cisco has innovative, next-generation wireless solutions that offer greater performance and extended reach for pervasive wireless connectivity. These routers help extend corporate networks to secure remote sites while giving users access to the same applications found in corporate offices for both data and voice applications.

When users require WLAN access, visibility and control of network security are even more critical at the remote site. Application Services As organizations continue to centralize and consolidate their branch IT infrastructure in an effort to reduce cost and complexity in the branch office, they are challenged to provide adequate user experience, ensure continuous service availability, and deliver business-relevant applications when and where they are needed.

To address these challenges, the Cisco Series provides the ability to host Cisco, 3rdparty, and custom applications on Cisco Services Ready Engine SRE module that seamlessly integrate into the router.

The module has its own processor, network interface, and memory that operate independently of the host router resources, helping to ensure maximum concurrent routing and application performance while reducing physical space requirements, lowering power consumption, and consolidating management.

The Internal Service Module hardware offers up to a seven times performance improvement over the previous-generation Advanced Integration Modules and provides a x86 processor. The Cisco SRE module enables on-demand provisioning of branch-office applications on the Cisco Series platforms so that you can deploy the right application, at the right time, in the right place.

The hardware and software decoupling provided by the service-ready deployment model enables applications to be provisioned on the module at the time of its installation or remotely anytime thereafter.

The Service Ready Engine enables organizations of various sizes to future-proof their network by allowing them to quickly deploy new branch-office applications without deploying new hardware, reducing the cost of rolling out branch-office services.

Managing Your Integrated Services Routers Network Management applications are instrumental in lowering Operating Expenditures OPEX while improving network availability by simplifying and automating many of the day-to-day tasks associated with managing an end-to-end network.

Organizations rely on Cisco, third-party and in-house developed network management applications to achieve their Opex and productivity goals. Underpinning those applications are the embedded management features available in every ISR. The new ISRs continue a tradition of broad and deep manageability features within the devices.

Table 4. Encapsulations Ethernet, Table 5. It offers the ability to monitor events and take informational, corrective, or any desired EEM action when the monitored events occur or when a threshold is reached.
