Some users ask some questions about the difference between ISR 1000 and ISR 800 such as the difference between C1111-8P and C891F-K9.
We know that the new ISR 1000 Series does not replace the ISR800 Series. You can continue to order the 800 Series after the ISR 1000 Series becomes orderable.
A user’s question: Difference between C1111-8P vs. C891F-K9
“I’m thinking to implement new model router for my infrastructure and I would like to know what would be the best option. Currently I have two MPLS provider and I will need to guarantee the communication to Central Data Center. And deploy different services like (Network segmentation, Dynamic protocols, QoS, ACLs). The main idea is that the router can receive both mpls links”
Suggestions: Choose C1111-8P or C891F-K9
Both models are based on Cisco IOS which comes with a wide array of networking features including and no limited to Routing Protocols (EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, etc), QoS (Low-Latency Queue, Shaping, Policing, etc), Security features (ACL, Zone-based Firewall), etc.
