Equipment Recommendation

Hi.  I'm building a bid for a network and website for my first consulting gig in *years*.  I've been working as a product manager and grew up in IT.

 

The business is a workspace buildout for data-heavy individual users - up to 30 devices.  I'd like a LAN (or vLAN) for security cameras, cash register, entertainment system, SMB owner use, etc. There will be a heavily used vLAN for say 30 guest users (think coffee shop, and the high-end users are real data people). 

 

It looks like I can make a 100MB fiber connection with cable internet for failover etc. for Internet service.  

 

Can I use *one piece* of equipment - from the MX family - to configure 2 ISP connections mesh and failover, 3+vLANS, max throughput as much as possible up to ~512Mbps total. On one vLAN, I'd like to limit x# IPs to 4Mbps then throttle, On one vLAN I'd like to allow up to 20Mbps per x# IP based on member login, and the overage I'd like to spread out between the "corporate" vLan and the first two depending on demand.

 

I want everything like an enterprise build with a router, smart switches, and wifi access points. And my budget is limited.

Re: Equipment Recommendation

The little MX68 will do most of what you want.

I'm confused about your statement around WiFi, but for that many users I'd probably go with an MR46:

It's not clear to me how many devices will be wired.  If it is more than 10 you'll need either a 24 or 48 port switch:

It sounds like everything being accessed is on the Internet and their are no local servers.  If there is going to be a need for more than Gigabit networking then you'll need higher end switches, but it is not clear from your description if this is the case.

Re: Equipment Recommendation

Hi @Chris10 , looks like Philip has covered off the hardware requirements for you. Are you in the UK, if so which Partner will you be reaching out to?  If you don’t have one aligned we’d be more than happy to quote this lot for you.

 

regards

Re: Equipment Recommendation

Thank you Philip!  The MX68 and MR46 are what I put in the original proposal. You also validated that since I am planning to host all IT services in the cloud - I can remove the switch.  I will be wiring a conference room phone, two smart screens, a clover system, a Sonos, and the security camera base.  I have a follow up question which I will post in a new thread.

Re: Equipment Recommendation

Thank you, not in the UK... I am physically in Canada at the moment and this is for a startup in Los Angeles.
