A hardware Firewall

Well you can make your own hardware firewall or UTM box. You need to 1st decide whether you will do the software processing or FPGA based processing. In case it is software processing then you need a standard machine with something like Zebra, Quagga or even Vyatta. The chassis can be bought so. Every component can be bought.
