Secure Routing, Switching & WiFi

The Cisco 1000 Series ISR

with Verizon Wireless LTE Advanced

When you need traditional secure routing, or software defined WAN with high performance throughput to meet the demands of the digital branch, please consider the new 1000 Series ISR!

Ideal for small to medium branches and temporary networks, the 1000 Series is the first fixed-configuration router with Cisco’s trusted IOS XE software. Combined with a multicore architecture, the 1000 series yields high availability network services, increased mobility, industry-leading security, and multiple levels of redundancy, including Verizon LTE Advanced for “always on” business continuity.


The 1000 Series ISR Difference

To help your evaluation, we offer this framework: Performance, Security & Support.



Fueled by Cisco IOS-XE for up to 250 Mbps crypto performance with Advanced Network Services enabled, the 1000 Series provides increased mobility and next-generation WAN and LAN options including SFP/SFP+, DSL, LTE Advanced, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi to extend new SD WAN architectures and cloud services across remote sites.

In addition to industry-leading functionality (tech specs found here), the 1000 Series offers Application Centric Services, programmability and Verizon Wireless LTE-A to maximize utility and deployment flexibility.

Widely deployed in the world’s most demanding and secure networks, Cisco ISRs provide customer proven branch and retail network security.  

And, the 1000 series ISRs deliver enterprise class security including high-performance encryption, VPN, firewall, URL filtering and support for Verizon Wireless Private Network service with Private Network traffic management.

Fueled by next generation IOS-XE, the ISR 1000 offers branch threat defense including perimeter control protection, intrusion prevention, web security, and malware protection, and the widest range of public and private network VPN services. ISR branch security services include:

Cisco ISRs also include leading physical router security including:

  • The secure boot feature performs hardware-based authentication of the bootloader software to prevent malicious or unintended software from booting on the system.
  • Code signing verifies digital signatures of executables prior to loading to prevent execution of altered or corrupted code.
  • Hardware authentication protects against hardware counterfeiting by using an on-board tamper-proof silicon, including field replaceable modules. If authentication fails, the module is not allowed to boot.

And, if you need the ease and support of managed private network security service over the 4G connection the ISR 1000 series is fully integrated with the Verizon Wireless Private Network service. The 1000 Series supports Verizon DMNR (dynamic mobile network routing) service using NeMo protocol (IPv4-based Network Mobility). The 1000 series also supports PMIPv6 protocol, and Multi-VRF with Cisco DMVPN (dynamic multipoint VPN), which is compatible with Verizon Private Network.
Additionally Cisco ISRs are the first routers to support Verizon’s new Private Network Traffic Management (PNTM). PNTM is an enhancement for the 4G LTE Private Network that provides you with a premium and differentiated network experience through Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities using standards-based IP packet marking.

The robust security options offered by the ISR 1000 series yield flexibility, high availability, and application security, with the ability to deliver differentiated services for multiple departments and organizations.
