Just looking to ping you guys to see what you think. We're in the process of having our old Cisco 6509 replaced, which was doing everything... routing, switching, encryption, vpn, etc. On the recommendation of the vendor we chose, we're moving forward with Juniper 550's for our main VPN at the core of our 'hub and spoke' network. We're on a MetroE connection and our HQ branches out to sites that have a Cisco 2821 router on the other side. Before, the 6509 and the 2821's would create an encrypted connection, but now we have to do that with these Junipers. They did come with installation, but the vendor is having a ton of issues trying to replicate our setup and get the connection to stay up and be stable. The latest thing is the most encrypted bandwidth they can get out of the boxes is 135Mb/s when it's rated at 1Gb/s at 3DES. Thoughts?
