Help finding a good small remote office solution

Unanswered Question
Jul 7th, 2010

I am needing a solution for a small branch office with WIFI, VPN, POE, VOIP W/QOS, min 8, 10/100 ethernet ports with POE, and can use DSL or Cable as the primary ISP.  I was looking at the 871, but I am not sure if this is what we need.  Any help pointing us in the right direction, would be great.

I have this problem too.

Yup, one of the 800 Branch Office routers should be able to handle it http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps380/index.html They can also provide security and other features. Depending on your traffic load they will be able to do what you need.

If you need a firewall for that you could use a 5505 or a 5510 that should be able to handle your traffic http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/prod_models_comparison.html

I hope it helps.

Thanks for the fast reply.  The 871 looked like the best fit, I just wanted to make sure.  How scaleable is it, we may need to add up to a total of 12 connections, with up to 8 phones.  I know it only has 2 POE ports, I should be able to add an additional POE switch to it without any issue correct?

Thanks

Yes, it will not be a problem. Both POE switch and the devices and connections you are mentioning.

The only limitation that I see is traffic load, which given the devices you mentioned will not be significant.

I hope it helps.
