I'm a bit confused about this honestly. I have a client who has 120+ hosts/users on their network.
I thought that the 800 series would suffice since they don't really require other network services.
They just want a internet router that won't die down on their 120+ users because their Linksys WRT54G2 crashes during production every now and then.
Now I looked at some cisco 800 series router data sheet and I found out that they only recommend 20 users for cisco 871, which I believe is suited for small - to - medium businesses. LINK: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps380/ps6200/product_data_sheet0900aecd8028a976.html
Now, how does cisco classify their client's business environment? For example, how many hosts do cisco classify for example, a SOHO environment? How many users is a SOHO environment?
It kind of looks like this:
SOHO = # of users
Small Business = # of users
Medium Business = # of users
Large Business = # of users
Enterprise = # of users
Help would be much appreciated because I don't believe that 800 series are only recommended for 20 users. And as a sidenote, could anybody recommend me a pretty powerful router with failover options suitable for 120+ users/hosts? Thanks alot! Help would really be much appreciated
