Cisco 2900 series integrated services routers are architected to enable the next phase of branch-office evolution, providing rich media collaboration and virtualization to the branch while maximizing operational cost savings. Overall, the Cisco 2900 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.

The Cisco VPN Internal Service Module (VPN ISM) is a module for the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) that provides the capability to considerably increase performance for VPN encrypted traffic. The module has a multicore processor that operates independently of the host router resources, helping ensure maximum concurrent encrypted application performance while maintaining competitive performance for other types of traffic. The Cisco VPN ISM supports the latest versions of cryptography standards, including stronger National Security Agency (NSA) regulated cryptographic algorithms such as Suite B Cryptography.

The Cisco VPN ISM is ready to use, allowing quick and easy installation of the module for increasing VPN encryption performance on Cisco ISR G2 routers. The VPN ISM is compatible with all Cisco ISR G2 routers that support the ISM card slot and runs the same level of feature-rich functions as found on the Cisco ISR G2. It integrates all elements necessary to optimize branch-office IT infrastructure for delivery of encrypted application data from the data center and deployment of branch-office applications on demand, and houses them under a single chassis - the Cisco ISR G2.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything is well documented on the Cisco DOC site, with a lot of deployment scenarios as well in others sites around the web. Valuable Features:This is the Enterprise Class solution for Routing, all technologies needs for now and for the future are supported. Everything is well documented in Cisco DOC site, with a lot of deployment scenarios as well in others sites around the web. Technically it is incontestable.Improvements to My Organization:Solved most communications needs and trouble scenarios.Room for Improvement:I cannot see any, maybe more new technologies that we unknown.Use of Solution:For eight years and counting.Deployment Issues:A lot, but the majority is due to vendor incompatibility with others and errors in deployment.Stability Issues:None.Scalability Issues:It dependent of the scenario and technical use and needs.Customer Service:Very good.Technical Support:Very Good.Previous Solutions:Yes, it depends of the customer's budget and management directions.Initial Setup:Very easy in all the ways.Implementation Team:In-house one.Cost and Licensing Advice:It is can be very expensive and licensing complex.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, Juniper and Brocade solutions.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Unlike the legacy fixed IOS, it has a modular IOS form. However, it's expensive and needs to be made more affordable for SMEs. Valuable Features:It's got fantastic throughput which meets most of the network Gbps/Tbps data throughput in Next-Generation Networks (NGN) that are in use in today's industry.Improvements to My Organization:* Higher switching capacity* Feature-rich for almost all requirements* Modular IOS form, unlike the legacy fixed IOS which is prone to single point of crash for all services and features on it.Room for Improvement:Cost is very expensive, it needs to be reviewed for affordability by SMEs. They are on the high side for some SMEs who are willing todeploy high standard IT solution powered by Cisco but most of the time,they are not able to afford Cisco SME products.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. February 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's easy to deploy if you know what you are doing, but if you want to improve, you have to upgrade the hardware. Valuable Features:SIP and MGCP - the router is a voice gateway router which terminates all calls to and from the PSTN.Improvements to My Organization:Automatic calls routing depending on certain conditions such as dialled digits and received calls. We can automatically select which telecom provider to use for certain calls.Room for Improvement:Nothing that I can think of. If you want to improve, you have the choice to upgrade the hardware.Use of Solution:I've used it for four years.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:It's been very stable since deployment.Scalability Issues:No scalability issues.Customer Service:Excellent customer service.Technical Support:I never had an issue yet with this product which required TAC intervention but from my previous experience Cisco TAC support is the best.Previous Solutions:We were using the old Telco PABX and had to switch over to VoIP because it was irrelevant and incompatible.Initial Setup:It's easy to deploy if you know what you are doing, and have a proper migration plan.Implementation Team:It was an in-house deployment.ROI:It's high.Cost and Licensing Advice:It's worth the price you pay.Other Advice:It's best for branch office deployment.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
