Hello Everyone,

We are in the market for a used integrated service router and switch to manage
our network. A 24 port gigabit switch should suffice accompanied with
an industry
grade router. We like buying used (still under warranty) equipment as
long as there
is good feedback. Which make and models are you gents and ladies liking these

Some Requirements for the router:

IPSEC and VPN Enabled
Transcoding capabilities using PVDM2 and NM-HDV2

We were considering:

Cisco 3845
Cisco WS-C2960G-24TC-L

But I thought I would get some insight on value, pricing, and
scalability before making
a recommendation.

Kind Regards,
