There are 3 non-profit orgs in our building (including mine) that share a single internet connection. We are preparing to upgrade to a 100mb pipe for this connection to alleviate bandwidth concerns (duh, right?). We currently share 10mb. For this new pipe, we'll need a new router. Each org also has it's own firewall after the router.
In order to prevent future traffic problems, we'd like the ability to shape and prioritize traffic. We'd also like the ability to monitor problem areas more closely than we currently can.
Naturally, budget is a big concern, but we do have some resources to invest in this.
What suggestions do you experts have on a specific product/model series to investigate?
Any advice, experience, etc...?
