2811 Router

Unanswered Question
Feb 26th, 2007

I'm going to aquire MCS-7815-I2 (Voice IP central) with CallMgr 4.2, plus "2811 Voice Security Bundle,PVDM2-16,Adv IP Serv,64F/256D", "1-port ADSLoPOTS HWIC" and "1-Port 2nd Gen Multiflex Trunk Voice/WAN Int. Card - T1/E1". With this kind of equipment and since the 2811 is a router/firewall do i still need an extra firewall appliance like "ASA 5510 Security Plus Appliance with SW, HA, 5FE, 3DES/AES" ?

I have this problem too.

It depends on the kind of security you are looking for your network. 2800 has an IOS firewall with IOS IPS enbaled with the security bundle. This is fine for a small branch office requirement.IOS firewall has some limitations in terms of scalability and the number of features supported vis-a-vis ASA5510.


HTH,Please rate if it does.
