Imagine my disappointment when reading the EOL/EOS documents and finding the entire RV series being EOL'd and no replacement from Cisco.
The RV345P was just perfect for us. Now what? Do people have any suggestions? The Anyconnect, Site-2-Site VPN, Routing protocol, VLAN isolation, inter-vlan routing, vlans, PoE, 16 ports, DHCP relay, etc. We make use of all of these features.
And with regards to the VPN, the throughput of up to 600mbit via the VPN was just what we needed. So something that can do at least that.
Discussion and or suggestions are welcome.
Thank you for the link. I had not considered Meraki. However, after reviewing the current offerings, I find that Meraki does not provide the same feature set in a single package.
Only 1 model family, MX68, has PoE capability yet only offers 200mbit VPN performance.
Admittedly, the idea of a cloud managed solution is intriguing, I just wish the underlying hardware was as capable as the RV34x devices.
At this point we're looking at a Fortinet product. De FG-60E-POE has the necessary VPN throughput, POE, etc. but lacks the port density. The port density issue is easier to solve than the VPN throughput. Cost is about 30-50% higher than the RV345P and I still don't know about licensing costs (if any). In any event it looks far more cost effective than the Meraki MX68.
Anyone else with suggestions?
Every product has pros and cons., so one should choose the right product based on the needs, and available support.
