Currently, our company network is pretty basic, consisting of two class C subnets, linked across a slow network connection via VPN. However, we are shortly moving into new premises.
Our new building is split into six distinct units, we are planning on occupying three of these, and leasing the other three spaces to other companies. I'd like to assign a subnet per unit.
We intend to use an additional subnet for our infrastructure (our company servers), and a further subnet for shared infrastructure (i.e. proxy servers), so that's a total of 8 subnets. I don't see a need to expand beyond that in during the life of the router.
I need to be able to set ACLs to allow or prevent specific subnet from being able to communicate with each other. I'm not looking at spending a fortune on features we don't need, just something reliable with 1Gbps connectivity with the ability to link to switches via fibre.
So the question is....
....My knowledge of router hardware can be written on the back of a stamp, so can anyone suggest any suitable hardware for the job? I have someone in mind (CCNA) to get the work done, so I guess anything Cisco would be preferred.
