if their any mobile app for Cisco RV130W for remote monitoring 





Hello everyone! 


Which model of routers is the best for connecting to my ISP. I do not intend to do anything more with the router


I have a very basic knowledge of Cisco Systems. In fact, I only got involved because we are in the process of changing to a high-end internet connection, and our ISP recommended enterprise-grade service. And Cisco routers were one of the recommended routers. 


So all I need is a " simple" Cisco router to connect my home office to my ISP internet.

Hello @Victor63567 Thanks for reaching out, as there are a lot of factors going into your router purchase decision. I can say personally that I'd recommend either that RV160 or RV260 for a small home office. It's in a sweet-spot on cost as well as VPN options. It sounds like you may need a higher end option, you'd be looking at the RV340 series instead. Especially if you require the use of AnyConnect which is exclusive to the RV340 series.


@abir.hasan Currently our routers do not use apps to manage the device. We have a web UI option that should work on most mobile-browsers without issue. Our Cisco Business Wireless offering does use a mobile app for management, but that's more of an aside.
