Hi Experts --
I need some advice. My company is currently upgrading our internet speeds from 5mb download and upload to 100mb download and 20mb upload. With the higher speeds, this is a good time to upgrade the networking components. The curernt internet connection is 2-T3 lines that connect into a Cisco 2800 Series Router which connects to the various switches in our office.
One upgrade solution is to install a firewall (looking at a Checkpoint firewall) in front of a gigabit router (does not need to be wireless) which connects to the switches. The switches will all be upgraded to 48-port switches 10/100/1000.
Does anyone have any recommendations on the firewall, router, and/or switches? Is there a better solution? Would it be possible to purchase the router with all the firewall options, or should the network have a separate firewall and router?
Thanks for all of our support!
Thanks for all your advice
