    Cisco 2900 or 3900

      A:I have a new 100mbps EPL fiber link and wanted to know what would be the best recommendation to interneconnect my sites. In one end of the cable the ISP is providing ethernet handoff, on the other end the ISP is providing Fiber handoff ?



      Q:Hi, if you have no idea to decide which is suitable for you to choose Cisco 2900 or Cisco 3925, you can follow the information below to help you make decision:



      Overview of Cisco 2900:

      Cisco 2900 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR) are designed to meet the application demands of today's medium-sized branches and to evolve to cloud-based services.



      Overview of Cisco 3925 Router :

      The Cisco 3925 Series offers embedded hardware encryption acceleration, voice- and video-capable DSP slots, optional firewall, intrusion prevention, call processing, voicemail, and application services. The Cisco 3900 Series offers superior performance and flexibility for flexible network deployments from small business offices to large enterprise offices.

          Your speed between the two sites will always be limited by the slowest uplink on either side If one end has fiber and one has cable, you'll be limited to the cable upload speed.


          Hardware really doesn't matter in terms of filemaker's needs between those two devices.


          You have given us no scope whatsoever about the structure of your two sites, or your need to interconnect them. How many users in each location? How is your filemaker server configured (IE why do you need to connect two sites, rather than hosting at one location?) ? What do you even use filemaker for?


          If you give us vague data, you're going to get vague answers.
