    How many users and end devices are we talking about? Is this a stand alone site, or are there other offices (different buildings) that need to communicate with each other?

    Depending on needs (e.g. IPT; # of VPN's, # of circuits...) look at anything from a Cisco 800 series, 1800 series, or 2800 series. By default I’d say look at the Cisco 2800 series. That’s our smallest office router. We’ve used the Cisco 800 series and Netscreen 5GT for additional connections at some sites as well.

    ** We're pretty much a Cisco-shop here. The 5GT was an experiment that was successful but not enough to strain our Cisco relationship :)
