New office router and firewall

I'm designing for a new office and am looking for help with which Cisco gear to order. It has to be Cisco and I just need help on the router and firewall stuff.

The new office will have two ISDN-PRI T1s. One for voice, one for data. The firewall won't be doing any VPN stuff. Just straight filtering and NAT.

I am looking at a 2811 ISR with two VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1 interface modules. We are hoping to go to SIP in the future so I chose these for flexibility. Also looking at an ASA 5510. Will these do the trick or is that overkill?

Thanks

I think you are right on.  You could scale down to a 5505 depending on what you need from the firewall, and you could drop down to an 1800 series router, but I would prefer what you have listed.  If I was spec'ng out I would go with what you have listed, but this is without knowing how many users, phones, devices, traffic flows, etc..

My recommendation would be of CISCO ASA 5510 and of CISCO Router 1811. I am currently using both and believe me you can do any thing you want with this thigs. Liken VPN, Policy Based Routing. Failover etc.

ken/nas, thanks for your responses. Any idea on what interfaces I need for the router to terminate ISDN PRIs?

The card you had (VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1) will do the trick for both the voice and the data.
