Two Companies Sharing a Fiber Connection

Experts,

Our company is looking to see what hardware it would take for two companies to share one fiber connection.  Two separate networks.  Is this possible?

Any information is greatly appreciated.

So the Fiber connection would come into the cisco asa firewall and then to the switch and then the other company would be plugged into my switch?

Are both companies sharing the single firewall?  Then yes.

If no, then the connection goes to the switch first and then the respective firewalls.

have a look to MIKROTEK routers.. Easy to configure then CISCO.

Though saying that CISO is the best if your IT Admin knows how to configure, if now use MIKROTEK.

Thanks

Yes, its can be shared in many ways :)
How they "share fiber" is the other end ISP, or same companies on both ends, but different buildings/else variations?
When its comes to "sharing" its always just matter of security level.
If security level low, then yes, VLAN isolation is enough, if security level is concerns , then GRE Ipsec tunnel should be used.
But its can be to many variation in your scenario.
