Hi AXISHK,

In the most concise manner, it pretty much comes down to this:

                                                   NSA 3600                 NSA 4600
Firewall throughput:                 3.4 Gbps                 6.0 Gbps
IPS throughput:                         1.1 Gbps                   2.0 Gbps
Full DPI throughput:                 450 Mbps                800 Mbps
Maximum connections (DPI):  175,000                   250,000
VPN tunnels:                                  1,000                     3,000
Interfaces:                                             2 x 10-GbE SFP+
                                                          4 x 1-GbE SFP, 12 x 1 GbE
                                                          1 GbE Mgmt Interface
                                                            Expansion Module

To be clear, both units have the same features for Interfaces.

Let me know if you have any questions!

How many ports for DMZ ? We are using Sonicwall Pro 4060 and it works perfect.

In this case, can NSA 3600 serves our need ?

You can assign as many ports as needed to DMZ with NGFWs (Next Generation Firewalls), which both units are! Basically whatever you could do with your Pro 4060 you can do with a NGFW only with greater functionality and much more power.

SonicWALL recommends replacing the Pro 4060 with the NSA 4600. I don't know what you're requirements are so it's tough for me to say but if the Pro 4060 is meeting your needs and with the spec comparison I provided above the NSA 3600 should still easily out perform what you have now.
