Hello Fellow IT's,
I am helping my friend out with his network configuration for optimal operation for VOIP operations his business. It s a simple set up, in which there are 27 client computers and 1 network server running windows server 2008 R2. Right now there is no router in between the Comcast modem and switch just a direct connection between the two devices. The modem handles the DHCP and is the default gateway. I'm trying to find the correct router that I can implement into this situation; Preferably one that I can set up a firewall, VPN, and that has QoS. The computers all use OS based soft phones and the databases are accessed and utilized through the cloud. I've done some research and found a few I believe that may work in this network but not sure. I was also informed that bandwidth plays a part in the selection and I have the overall numbers and system specs to provide as necessary. I have a few links below of a some routers that I found.
SOHO Network Security Firewall:
Cisco Small Business RV320 and RV325 Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Routers.
Basically all I'm trying to do is protect the system, decease latency, increased call quality, and allow for remote access to the network.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thank you.
