Maximum Firewall throughput : the maximum traffic firewall can handle
Maximum 3DES/AES VPN Throughput : maximum encrypted traffic firewall can handle
by the way your firewall definitely can handle the extra load

What is the meaning of
Maximum Firewall throughput
Maximum 3DES/AES VPN Throughput

Ernie BeekExpertCommented:
Maximum Firewall throughput: the maximum speed at which the firewall can pass (all) traffic.
Maximum 3DES/AES VPN Throughput: the maximum speed at which the firewall can pass VPN (encrypted) traffic. This is lower because of the encryption/decryption of the VPN traffic (which takes some time of course).
