VPN Connections

Hi All,
 I have two remote sites that are not connected in any way, they don't even have an internet connection as yet. They want to implement a video conferencing system between the two via IP.
My question is, since this is a point to point connection, what are the best cisco routers to use, I was thinking of the 1841, would I need that on both site or could I use an 800 series on one and the 1841 on the other.

All cisco routers is allowing pointtopoint VPN chanel. quality depends on your bandwidth request and VPN type.
If you dont need more that 2 Mbit IPSEC bandwidth on tunnel, you may use 800 sserires router. 1841 support up to 4 Mbit.
If you dont need encryption 800 support 8 mbit, 1841 support more than 20 Mbit.

It's going to be used only for the video conferencing across these two site so will not be a constant connection.
