Cisco's Sliding But Still Dominates Routers

Cisco takes aim at fakers with anti-piracy tool

ENP takes a look. By Paul Rubens | Feb 28, 2005 If you play word association with a network administrator and say "router," the chances are pretty high that the response you get back will be "Cisco." This doesn't reflect a lack of imagination on the part of NAs, it's just that Cisco Systems has a vast share of the router market about 58 per cent according to San Jose, CA-based research house Infonetics. Cisco, also based in San Jose, addresses the SOHO market with its Linksys division, and the SMB, enterprise and service provider markets with its bewildering range of Cisco products. Although Cisco's share of the overall router market has been falling sharply over the last 12 months no doubt to the delight of rival Juniper Networks Cisco still the lion's share of the enterprise router market, which Juniper has as yet failed to penetrate significantly. Also on Cisco at ENP RSA: Cisco Revs Its Security Offerings In the enterprise space the models that matter cater for branch and head offices which effectively means the new 1800, 2800, and 3800 series Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) in branches and the 7200 series routers at head office. The new branch office routers build on the older and perhaps more familiar 1700, 2600, and 3700 series multiservice access routers, but have been redesigned from the ground up, with the result that they are both cheaper and offer higher performance than their predecessors. As the name suggests, the integrated services routers offer a range of services built in to the router, including telephony and call processing (except in the 1800) and security management including hardware encryption acceleration, IPSec VPN, and URL filtering. Most importantly, all these extra services can be switched on without having a negative impact on the underlying performance of the router itself all services can operate while the router is forwarding packets at line speed, Cisco claims. "In the past, services have been rolled out at head offices, but many companies now want to push out these services Shortel to branches," says Neil Walker, a Cisco Systems router product manager.

The firms senior vice president for public sector, Patrick Finn, told Nextgov that increasing numbers of rogue partners pretend to posses Cisco accreditation but are in fact selling bogus software and hardware. Undercover investigators from the US Government Accountability Office are said to have uncovered 40 quotes for counterfeit parts from online retailers based in China after placing orders for electronics between August 2011 and February 2012. Cisco has a whole section of its partner site devoted to such matters, including a case study example of a reseller who purchased 40 Cisco 1841 Integrated Services Routers from a broker and sold them on to a government department using the official channels. However, the department was not satisfied with the provenance of the kit, as Cisco explains : Cisco traced the serial numbers to the original routers, two of which were installed in a clients network in Asia Pacific. Cisco Brand Protection team members photographed the serial numbers of the original routers and provided this evidence to the government department.
