Hello Expert,

Equipment in place at head office.

a.      1 Baystack ARN router with a serial interface card and v.35 cable
b.       1 Paradyne CSU/DSU
c.      1 nortel switch
d.      1 nortel hub
e.       1 database server – sun mircosystem
f.      1 Dell poweredge server – WINS,DHCP,RAS are the services running.

The head office is connect to two sub office with equip with items list in a,b,c above.

The entire branch and head office connection is via frame relay.

It is recommended that another branch be place in frame relay platform .

I have decided to go with cisco 1800 series router for the propose branch office

Equipment for propose branch to be purchase.

(a) Paradyne CSU/DSU (this loaned from the telephone company that provides the       frame relay.

      (b) 1 nextel or cnet switch if necessary, since this branch office inclusive of growth

            will have max 5 workstations ( currently only 3 is use)

      (c) Cisco router ------- unsure.

The nature of the business requires 24 hours connection and very secure transmitting of data packets, hence we decided to go for a frame relay as oppose to VPN set up.

I  think along the lines of CISCO 1800 series, this must have a serial interface to connect to CSU/DSU .

Could you recommend with module in 1800 range should I buy to satisfy the above requirements, also were can I get the male V35 cable to connect router to CSU/DSU.?

Thanks

I would recommend the Cisco 1841 T1 bundle that comes with a T1 CSU/DSU module already in it. It is a much cleaner install than router-v.35-DSU, easier configuration, and single support call to Cisco for both.
You can also add a 4-port 10/100 switch module...

hello Irmore,

>> I would recommend the Cisco 1841 T1 bundle that comes with a T1 CSU/DSU module already in it

my telephone company whos frame relay platform i will be using insist on suppling a CSU/DSU

as part of the agreement,hence in will have to settle for cisco would the integrated CSU/DSU.

could you post a module in the same 1800 series with just a serial interface.

Thanks

They must be using VisualNetworks probe in their DSU.
The base 1841, with WIC-1T is a serial module, and the CAB-V35MT= is the cable you'll need
