Hi networkers,

- there are 11 frame relay circuits, possibility of growth,

-1 ISDN BRI connection,

-1 E1,

-no Voip at the present moment,

Which router do you suggest me to choose?

Yes. It's really a matter of budget, you can pretty much drive this as the situation requires, because any router can work.

What is your budget ?

Any ISR from 2801 and up would do the job.

let's say the client didn't specify a threshold.Actually, their HQ router is dieing, and he's willing to pay.

I forgot to mention that the 11 Frame Relay connection I talked about are on the same access link. (I meant 11 PVC, to be more accurate).

I agree with Paolo. The 2800 series ISR will work fine. You can also choose among the 3800 series ISR.


Aside from the model of your router, you may want to think about the maintenance contract, like 24x7 x 4 hours or something.


Hope this helps.
