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.?
