what are the differences between a router/or high end catalyst switch like cat6500 and pix like pix 515, as far as security concerns.

Re: pix

Well, a PIX is not a router. The PIX is a standalone firewall that is very fast and very secure. It’s usually best to protect the perimeter of your network using a PIX and the routers and switches should just do routing. Your Cisco design engineers should be able to help determine what’s best in your topology.
