What I'm most interested in is security and ease of administration. (kind of
an oxymoron). I will need to do NAT. In regards to interoperability, I
don't know what I necessarily need to "interoperate" with (we'll probably
hook up e-mail with our ms exchange server). I'm pretty familiar with both
NT and Cisco's IOS. With regards to support, I assume that the three
companies below would provied sufficient support (I've always been pleased
with Cisco). Speed is not too much of an issue at this time, we'll probably
be starting out at a minimum of T1. I don't think we'll be taxing the
firewall. However there is talk of hooking directly into a SONET Ring within
the next year.
I hope this helps.
