Help Choosing Router and Configuration

Hi all,

hope to find everyone well. 

Once again I come to you guys looking for your expertise. 

I don't have much experience in routing since I mostly use L3 switches to do everything but I was given a job where I have to pass the configuration below from a Mikrotik router (that I never touched before) to another router, and this router has to act as a core router and a firewall to the internal network, the configuration currently on the Mikrotik is the following:


/interface bridge
add name=bridge_MPLS protocol-mode=none
add name=bridge_vlan100_CCTV protocol-mode=none
add name=bridge_vlan217_Court
add name=bridge_vlan218_management

I was given a Draytek Router to do this but the router doesn't support OSPF or MPLS and also I created another network (vlan) in order to separate some devices from the network and the router had the cpu always at 80 plus % what was creating all kind of issues. Obviously the router was not being man enough to handle the routing process from the network to what is weird when the load on the interfaces was only of 270Mbps.

Well, I tried everything to put things to work the best I could but could never bring some cameras that are connected to the ETHER4 but no matter what I did I wasn't able to. 

Now I'm going to remove this Draytek and I'm going to install a Cisco but since I don't work with routers very much don't know what router/firewall is going to be the best one to this kind o job,

What router do you guys recommend and if possible what kind of coniguration should I add or the routing process to happen?


Thank you
