Dear Experts

Background:
Planning to point to point connect Main Office to branch Office using firewalls.
Leased Line: 5Mbit/s
Branch office: I will use Juniper SSG5.
Both Main Office & Branch Office will use DSL to connect to internet at each ends.

I am proposed by 2 diff solution providers to use 1. SSG140 or 2. SRX 240H

What should i consider on the firewall selection???

Dear Experts. Please kindly share your experience.
Gordon

Well there is a few important thing. In my opinion first of all is Max Concurrent Session limit. The higher it is specified on a hardware the better for You. If You are not short with money I would highly recommend to take SRX instead of SSG. Main thing is what kind of performance You need and how big load You will have on it.

Both are good systems. Since you use a SSG on the branch, which runs ScreenOS, you should stay with that and also use a SSG on the HQ. SRX runs JunOS, which is more complex, but has e.g. more in-parallel editing capabilities. JunOS has been routing-oriented, while ScreenOS is more about security.

It does not make sense to handle two different OS. And you certainly will need none of the JunOS features.

Also check how many dial up VPNs you need.

You may even use the NS 5GT which are cheap  ( 20x model ) , but it will stop being supported in 2013

I hope this helps !
