The Cisco 4000 Series ISR
When you need “always on” branch services, please consider the 4000 Series ISR!
Ideal for small, medium and large branches, the 4000 Series delivers critical branch network services, industry-leading security, and multiple levels of redundancy, including Verizon LTE Advanced, for “always on” business continuity.
The ISR 4000 Series utilizes Verizon’s Wireless Private Network services including the new split data routing service. When data is split, private data is sent over the private network, and public traffic over the Internet. This separation can drastically reduce your network services costs, and will increase performance for Internet and public cloud applications.
And, the ISR 4000 Series delivers industry-leading secure SD WAN capabilities, including a connector to rapidly deploy Verizon’s DNS Safeguard, based on Cisco Umbrella, providing cloud-based threat prevention for malware and ransomware.
The 4000 Series ISR Difference
To help your evaluation, we offer this framework: Performance, Security & Support.
Fueled by Cisco IOS-XE for up to 2Gbps performance with Advanced Network Services enabled, the 4000 Series provides industry-leading network, security, compute, and storage services to help you meet every day network challenges, and extend new hybrid WAN architectures and cloud services across remote sites.
In addition to industry leading functionality (tech specs found here), the 4000 Series offers a new Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Advanced Module, Application Centric Services, and programmability to maximize utility and deployment flexibility.
Widely deployed in the world’s most demanding and secure networks, Cisco ISRs provide customer proven branch and retail network security.
And, the 4000 series ISR delivers enterprise class security including high-performance encryption, VPN, firewall, URL filtering and support for Verizon Wireless Private Network service with Private Network traffic management.
Fueled by next-generation IOS-XE, the 4000 Series ISRs offer branch threat defense including perimeter control protection, intrusion prevention, web security, and malware protection, and the widest range of public and private network VPN services. ISR branch security services include:
- IOS Zone Based Firewall
- DNS service protection from malware and ransomeware with Umbrella & Cloud Web Security
- Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for endpoints.
- Snort IPS, Integrated IPS and FirePOWER Threat Defense – (These have individual hyperlinks)
- IP Security (IPsec)- and Transport Layer Security (TLS)-based encryption technologies delivered in DMVPN, GETVPN, and Flex VPN.
Cisco ISRs also include leading physical router security including:
- The secure boot feature performs hardware-based authentication of the bootloader software to prevent malicious or unintended software from booting on the system.
- Code signing verifies digital signatures of executables prior to loading to prevent the execution of altered or corrupted code.
- Hardware authentication protects against hardware counterfeiting by using an onboard tamper-proof silicon, including field-replaceable modules. If authentication fails, the module is not allowed to boot.
And, if you need the ease and support of managed private network security service over the 4G connection the ISR 4000 series is fully integrated with the Verizon Wireless Private Network service. The 4000 Series supports Verizon DMNR (dynamic mobile network routing) service using NeMo protocol (IPv4-based Network Mobility). The 4000 series also supports PMIPv6 protocol, and Multi-VRF with Cisco DMVPN (dynamic multipoint VPN), which is compatible with Verizon Private Network.
Additionally, Cisco ISRs are the first routers to support Verizon’s new Private Network Traffic Management (PNTM). PNTM is an enhancement for the 4G LTE Private Network that provides you with a premium and differentiated network experience through Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities using standards-based IP packet marking.
