Upgrading Corporate Office-Where To Start?


We are planning to upgrade the Cisco equipment in our corporate office and I have been given the task of doing it (lucky me). What I have here is our corprate office with connections (frame-relay) to 58 nationwide shops. The number of shops is expected to double in a year. At the coportate office we are using a 2611XM as our main router and 9 2950 switches to handle the servers and corporate users. I am looking at something along the lines of a 7200 series with 48 port switch blades and a router module. I need some advice on the best way to set this up using the least amount of space (my budget is rather open ended so there should be no cost issues). I am fairly new at this so please correct me if I say anything that either does not exist, not possible or is just plain silly.


Re: Upgrading Corporate Office-Where To Start?

I would suggest that you go through the features of the product throughly so that you can make maximum use of it. To start with the data sheets would give you a fair idea on what all modules and festures the 7200 supports. There are various documents available that explain the configuration and other aspects. The link below shows a list of these.
