Business quality ADSL modem routers and central office router - recommendation ?

Hi,
I have a customer who has 4 branch offices that have ADSL connections and a central office with a 20Mbps SHDSL connection.  They need to run VPNs back to the central office.

I'm looking for recommendations on TOP QUALITY/BEST :
 - ADSL modem routers for each of branch offices
 - Central office router and/or UTM device

Does anyone have any recommendations / suggestions ?

The branch offices could go with separate routers/firewalls and ADSL modems - don't have to be integrated :)

For central office you can do with fortigate 60D series UTM box, this has wireless options too

On the branch side there are many choices

I would recommend the use of UTM to every office to avoid configuration issues...
Just go to a vendor and ask them to make a working suggestion....
Preferably the main office would get the good one (UTM) and the other offices would get the smaller models(UTM).
For the SHDSL just use the supplied modem/routers (i guess the provider supplied them...if not ask for a cheap one that it recommends...) , the UTM will handle everything and they would work as simple modems....

You can use Fortigate 60 series(UTM License) firewall's for both central and remote office.

We have implemented this box to many customers and the firewall is quite stable.

Fortigate support is very responsive too
