The Cisco 4000 family Integrated Services Router (ISR) revolutionizes WAN communications in the enterprise branch. With new levels of built-in intelligent network capabilities and convergence, it specifically addresses the growing need for application-aware networking in distributed enterprise sites. These locations tend to have lean IT resources. But they often also have a growing need for direct communication with both private data centers and public clouds across diverse links, including Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs and the Internet.
- Lower WAN expenditures
- Superior and secure user application experiences
- IT consolidation, space savings, and improved total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Business continuity and increased resiliency
- Lower telephony costs with VoIP and rich media experiences
- Embedded IP security (IPsec) VPN hardware acceleration
- Integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports
- USB-based console access
- Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN)
Cisco IWAN is a set of intelligent software services that allow you to reliably and securely connect users, devices, and branch office locations across a diverse set of WAN transport links. IWAN-enabled routers like the ISR 4000 dynamically route traffic across the "best" link based on up-to-the-minute application and network conditions for great application experiences. You get tight control over application performance, bandwidth usage, data privacy, and availability of your WAN links - control that you need as your branches conduct greater volumes of mission-critical business.
- Cisco converged branch infrastructure
The Cisco 4000 Series ISRs consolidate many must-have IT functions, including network, compute, and storage resources. The high-performance, integrated routers run multiple concurrent IWAN services, including encryption, traffic management, and WAN optimization, without slowing your data throughput. And you can activate services on demand through a simple licensing change.
