I have been tasked with changing our WAN links from expensive leased lines onto a cheaper vpn option. We have core 6500's with vpn's terminating at a cluster of checkpoint nokia devices. I have been looking into the hardware options for the remotes sites. Approx 60 users at each site. We will be going voip in the next year or so and the checkpoint edge devices seem to offer everything that we need with the management being in place already. I am still not convinced that the 2800's ISR's might not be the better option with it's modular hardware and it has more configurability with the ios etc. Maybe the 2800's future proof the solution better. Any advice greatly appreciated.

To my best knowledge, you can go for either 1800 series or 2800 series router opt for your VPN end points.
