WAN bandwidth upgrade

To support the WAN upgrade, The 10, 20 and 50 Mbps locations would require a router or layer 3 device with 10/100 Fast Ethernet electrical port for the WAN. The 100 Mbps location would require a router or layer 3 device with Gigbit Milt-Mode port for the WAN connection.

We have routers at all locations, that covers the layer 3 part. The only location we have 100 mbps is HQ. We have a core stack made up of Cisco Catalyst 3750's, it goes through our firewall first, Cisco 5510.  As for rhe other locations, we have either a Cisco 3725 or a Cisco 1841-T1.
 
Are we ready for this upgrade?

At the HQ, it sounds like your ISP is handing you a fiber connection.

Unless you plan on using a transceiver, you'll need a fiber port for your ASA5510.
Make sure you have the correct fiber jumper.
ISPs typically use ST or SC connections.
Your ASA5510 probably uses LC.

Ensure you have gigabit connectivity between your ASA and the 3750 stack.

We have a fiber port on the firewall. However, at the site with the 20mbps connection we need a HWIC card for the router. Other than that, we are good to go.
