Cisco Broadband VPN Router(s) Question

Unanswered Question
Mar 25th, 2008

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions in regards to which model(s) of Cisco Routers they would recommend?

I have never used a Cisco router before. Currently, I use the Netopia 4686-XL for all of my broadband connections for my companies. (I use different Netopia models for my T1's)

Does Cisco offer a Broadband VPN router with Hardware Acceleration installed along with a GUI configuration? (Or a GUI & CLI would be fine as well)

I am looking for a more robust VPN Broadband router(s) with hardware acceleration installed to handle a heavy traffic workload.

Thank you very much in advance for any information you could provide.

I have this problem too.

You can look at any of the 800 series SOHO type broadband product line, look at the data sheets , they do support Cisco security device manager (SDM) which is gui interface, I believe the 831, 836, and 837 routers have ipsec hardware acceleration but not sure look in data sheet for each product it should porvide that information.

You may look product throughput stats
