There is 280 computers in five different building. They need a router that has really good security included VPN with frame relay connection and there are three employment in IT department. None of them have certified in CCNA or CCNP. They have to contact outside source to set up or repair their router when it come to corrupted.

I wonder which Cisco router that has easy configuration with really good security that anyone can configure it without certified CCNA or CCNP? The price isn't their primary concern.

Thank you,

How are your 5 buildings connected?

For your connection to the internet I would recommend a 2811 with the Advanced Security feature set.

Price isn't a concern? In the real world, it's ALWAYS a concern! :)

Okay, you're leaving out the connections to the other buildings, #1. #2, what other type of services are we concerned with? IPS? What type of encryption for the VPN? If price doesn't matter, go with a cisco 3845. gives you lots of bandwidth, lots of cpu, and lots of options. Add an AIM-IPS-K9 and you've got additional IPS signatures. Add an AIM-VPN/HPII-PLUS and you'll be able to do AES 256 on huge pipes (1GB ethernet uplinks???) :)

Fun stuff.
