Which Cisco Small Business Router is the right one for your business?

February 11, 2014 - 4 Comments

2014 seems to be flying by. I cannot seem to keep up. The blur started with, well, Thanksgiving, the Holiday Season, New Years, Chinese New Year, and now Valentine’s Day is on Friday. You made that dinner reservation right?

We often get questions from folks about which model is right for their small business, whether we are talking about a switch, wireless access point or router. Of course the answer depends on the questioner and their respective business. For a home office or solo person business to a small team of employees in a single room/area, an all-in-one wireless router will make sense. Essentially, it has a router, small switch and wireless access point in one box. Once the business requires more people and more real estate, a more complex approach maybe necessary.

I saw a tweet last week from a gentleman in the UK who did a write-up on the RV220W, which is an all-in-one model. The writer does a good job comparing a normal consumer router versus a small business router and pointing important characteristics to look for. Take a look at the write-up, then go make that reservation.

Have Fun!

  1. Thank you for sharing the information about the small business.I also planned to use RV220W as my router for the secure wireless connections.

  2. Thanks Marc, Im actually planning to make business and found an informative article about Computer business. Bolem gives me ideas to focus on a computer business. I plan to use RV220W as my router for its secured network and wireless connectivity.

  3. I used a first gen RV042 for a couple of years and found it to be a really good option for my home network. I have two wired Internet connections at home, and if you don't have more than 70mbit out and don't need IPv6, the RV042 is a great option. I wrote about this on my blog a while back... it's due for an update soon. And a lot of what I use at home applies to smaller businesses as well (enterprise wireless, high-featured switches, other total overkill). :)

    • Thank you Robert. Would you be interested in trying out the RV042's newest sibling? Let me know and thanks again for the comment. Best, Marc
