Cisco gets fresh mid-range router competition

OneAccess, the branch office router company that's a major competitor to Cisco overseas, is launching new products for the mid-range router market.

The mid-range market is defined by OneAccess as one that requires routers have greater than 150Mbps WAN interfaces and are priced between $5,000 and $30,000. Its offerings butt heads with Cisco's 39XX ISR and 4451 ISR routers.

OneAccess is responding with the ONE1560 and ONE2510. The 1560 features single or dual Gigabit Ethernet WAN uplinks and a four-port Gigabit Ethernet LAN switch. Optional interfaces and features include an A/VDSL uplink, dual mode IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN and third-party applications for the router's application server.

The 1560 supports IPv4 and IPv6, RIP v1/v2, OSPF v2 and BGP v4 routing protocols. It also supports PIM-SM and IGMP v2/v3 multicast protocols, IP QoS, IPsec, GRE, IPIP and L2TP VPNs, firewalling with stateful packet inspection, and standard and extended access lists.

The 2510 sports single or dual Gigabit Ethernet WAN uplinks, a four-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, and optional A/VDSL uplinks and wireless LAN. It supports the same routing, multicast, VPN and security features as the 1560.

The mid-range router market is expected to grow from $1.25 billion in 2013 to just over $1.5 billion in 2014, OneAccess says, citing figures from Infonetics. Comparatively, the branch office router market is expected to grow from just over $1.5 billion in 2013 to about $1.65 or $1.7 billion in 2014, and the high-end router market is expected to remain flat at about $550 million.

The ONE1560 is priced at $2,500 while the ONE2510 costs just under $5,000. OneAccess claims these prices are one-third to one-seventh that of Cisco's 39XX and 4451 ISRs.

OneAccess sells its routers through service providers as managed services CPE.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
