which cisco router to buy?

Hi

We have a network of 70 cisco switches and recently acquired CiscoWorks. I understand I need to get a Cisco router to :

1.  use NTP to synchronise time on all the switches

2. use it a a Source Router (with IP SLA feature) when defining collectors in CiscoWorks IPM (Internetwork Performance Monitor).

Would Cisco series 800 or 1800 or 2800 router do the job? I know these are IOS features.

Thanks

Hi Raoul,

Can you provide more information?  How much bandwidth are you expecting the router to perform?  If requirements 1 & 2 are the only once you want then you can, I guess, use your core switch instead.  Otherwise, 850, 870, 860, 880 or 890 are good candidates.

Hi Leo

Yes the only requirements are 1 and 2. I had a go at using the core switch but it is a 3750 and does not have the IP SLA feature.

Thanks

Hi Raoul,

If you want to have router for below two opinion i would suggest to go with 1800 or 2800 will be more than enough for the requirement.
