They also have 4g options built in in some models, I can’t confirm whether 5g options exist but I’d be surprised if they don’t yet.

Hi Darren,

What was the price range you were looking at?
Something like a Cisco c1117 should do FTTP and FTTN.
If you were looking at having these just be deployed on FTTP sites a c1111 should be fine.
I don't recall for these routers if you need extra licencing to unlock extra performance however, if memory serves me correctly the hardware should be perfectly capable.

Hi All,

We have sites that are NBN FTTN (last mile VDSL2) which are being upgraded to FTTP starting later this month.

Currently we run Cisco 1900 series routers into firewalls, switches, etc for small sites with 5-15 staff and that has worked well for many years.

Our smallest FTTP site will be 140 / 40MBps with larger sites 200MBps+ hence I was thinking it’s time to upgrade / replace the 1900 units.

Some of them are in support, however I’m not really bothered as we have plenty of spares and this is a good opportunity to make improvements whilst we’re doing site visits.

A few sites have 4G / 5G backup via separate router which can remain as is or integrated with new hardware if possible.

We do have some Ubiquiti devices around which work well, happy to consider those and any other suggestions.

Happy to hear recommendations off or on list if the information can benefit someone else here.
