Cisco Systems Routers

Cisco Systems manufactures several routers with MIPS processors. Most of these routers are relatively modern, and sometimes are still prohibitively expensive on eBay or via other mechanisms of purchase.


Cisco has a very bland history when it comes to the class of CPUs in their hardware. Cisco is often known for their (a)buse of m68k CPUs for their routers, as well as x86 CPUs for their firewalling and VPN solutions.

Cisco later switched to MIPS-based solutions from a variety of vendors, most notably PMC-Sierra and Broadcom.
