Cisco ISR features target branch locations

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

September 27 2007: Cisco is expanding the feature inventory of its popular ISR line to include things like acceleration, VoIP, and security. The move is targeting the branch offices of multi-site businesses, and is intended to reduce the success of one-off vendors in these spaces, including Juniper. As a market leader, Cisco can link secondary features to router products and have the combined product set fulfill its revenue requirements even though integrated devices have a lower user cost. We believe this to be a direction that is also aimed at creating a more generic branch access appliance to counter rumored moves by IBM in that direction, possibly in partnership with another network vendor.
