Dear Cisco Experts,

We are a K-12 school with around 250 computers. This summer we are planning to upgrade our Juniper firewall and Yamaha router to Cisco.

Could you please advice on which model of Cisco firewall and router devices would be most suitable for handling all internet traffic for 250+ users?

The plan is to create a DMZ zone between two firewalls. Therefore what we have mind is the following setup:

1) Device1 - Router with firewall module that directly connects to ISP (has to support PPPoE and able to connect to fiber optic modem, VPN connection for 50+ users)

2) Device 2 - Firewall with VPN functionality for 50+ users

We would greatly appreciate if you give advice on which model to buy.

Thank you very much!
