+1 for the SRX220.  It will work and work well.

Honestly - Find some more money if you can.

Check out: http://www.juniper.net/us/en/local/pdf/datasheets/1000281-en.pdf

The Juniper SRX100 might even do the trick, with enough ports, enough throughput, BGP, etc - but I'd go a SRX220 if you can afford it.  It will do you well.

If you can't then perhaps a switch with a gig uplink into a linux box running Quagga or something like that.

600 users isn't a small amount, so I'd be trying to do it properly.

Hey noggers,

I'm working in a company that has just reached 600 users in our
network infrastructure. We are having some issues with our router
(Draytek - Vigor 3200 Series). He's not handling well the bandwidth of
the 3 x 10Mb links we have, and we are scheduled for a 100Mb link next

However the problem is that the we are short on funds for IT.

So, with that, what kind of router do you noggers recommend for a
medium company with 600 users that can support up to 5 links delivered
trough ethernet.

Cheers to all,
Jason Firmino
