Re: 887 with Gigabit ports and Gigabit "internet"

It's ethernet. The ISP is an independent here in the UK building their own infrastructure. They present me with an RJ45 hanging off some CAT6.
Local equipment is installed to (usually) the apartment block plant room with fibre back to the local distribution point and CAT6 to any apartment signing up to the service.
I'm taking an 887 to test SVI and "raw" ethernet port behaviour and do some basic speed tests with NAT and CBAC configured.
I may suggest an ASA but as this is a domestic install an ASA might be overkill. A 1921 with a Sec licence should do I would think.

It sounds like the 1 Gbps pipe will be shared among multiple tenants, which you may end up getting 10% or 5% of it depending on tenant usage pattern or any bandwidth shaping methodology the building management implemented.

With that in mind, a 1921 router, ASA 5505, and SRX 100 should fit the bill.

If I were you, I would ask price, feature, and performance comparison table from your authorized Cisco reseller. You will then decide which one is most suitable.
