I am looking for some suggestions from people on a selection of a router and any needed interfaces in addition to the router which are needed. I am getting a new 20Mbps ATT fiber internet line. Where they will be terminating the line, I would have to run cable a good 100 feet or so.

So my question first is what type of cable is going to actually run from the terminated line to the router? Copper or Fiber? Seems like it would need fiber, but I just konw that fiber is the technology outside our building, I dont know about the inside.

Then, what model Cisco is my best bet? I may want to have a second line installed at some point, so I would like option for another SFP (if that is what it uses).

I have a decent size office with about 200 people and we have bonded 3 T1 4.5Mbps line now that we are putting quite a load on, so I thought something in the 2900 series. But I just dont konw what parts I would need to go with it.

Thanks.

HI,

If you don't want to use SFP , only media converter I advise ASA-5505-UL IF you need SFP you need to buy expensive router which has SFP you need to buy 3800 or 3900 series,---
