Looking for Router/switch recommendations

First off I am not taking CCNA or any certs

I am looking for recommendations for CISCO Router

Looking for 1Gigabit and Fiber for uplink
1GB internetwork to Switch

Looking for GB Switch with or with out POE
24 ports

Both must be scaleable and run current IOS

There is probably something i am forgetting because i don't really deal with networks

Thanks for the input

    What do you mean by scalable? Ability to add more interfaces? Are you looking for something newly purchased or used? What are the bandwidth requirements? Remember just because a device has 1G ports doesn't mean it can forward traffic at that rate.

    Be prepared to spend some money. ISR G2's would probably be the smallest thing that fits the needs of gig interfaces, modular scale and and actually pushes that much bandwidth.

    Switch wise should be easier to find something within your needs.

    For that kind of performance you're looking at a cisco ASR or Top of the line ISR2.

    I know it feels nice to have a beefy Cisco router at you Internet edge, but just get a Fortigate FG60d or a Juniper SRX. Then you can have all sorts of fun cisco routers on your internal network.
    Itchy... Tasty!
