changing firewalls from Cisco Pixes to Juniper SRXs

changing firewalls from Cisco Pixes to Juniper SRXs

I've got a network of 24 sites; hub and spoke design; using Pix 501's and some 515E's. I want to replace that with Juniper SRX100's and 220's. I need to make sure the Junipers and Ciscos can connect reliably as I'm performing the swap-out. I presume that when it comes time to swap the units out, I would start with the hub machine as opposed to the branch machines? I also am unsure as to actual design concept for the Juniper network, as far as protocol use (do I need BGP) and whether to use route-based or policy-based IPsec VPNs. I've been doing a lot of reading about, and done some basic configuring on, Juniper SRX100's , so I have a working knowledge, but am certainly no pro. I would appreciate some initial (big picture) design comments.
