Traffic / Bandwidth Shaping Firewall Appliance
Posted on 2010-09-08
I’m looking for a firewall appliance that has decent traffic / bandwidth shaping features. We have around $1,000 to spend but would be happy to pay less if that’s possible. This is for a small business that needs to prioritize a variety of different types of streaming media so that regular web surfing doesn’t impact the streams.
I am currently considering a Sonicwall TZ210 as it does have decent bandwidth management capabilities, however the controls aren’t as granular as I would like. Also, we don’t need a lot of the more advanced features of the TZ. We basically need a decent / low end firewall with good traffic shaping capabilities.
We are not looking for a software solution built around a PC, this needs to be an appliance.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
