Hi,

what is the maximum throughput for Internet Bandwidth for Fortigate 100D Firewall?

http://www.fortinet.com/products/fortigate/100Series.html

Base on this link, is it base on the IPS throughput? I am confuse. IPS can be refer to intrusion prevention system too. Or just Internet Provider Service?

Hi - is is ISP not IPS that normally refers to Internet Service Provider - in the web page you are looking at, IPS does indeed refer to Intrusion Prevention System.

The maximum throughput on most of the models on that page (including the 100D) is 2.5 Gbps

Hi Christ, thanks for pointing out and you are right, ISP is Internet Service Provider. LOL

We are thinking of increasing our bandwidth to 1Gbps. So if 100D supports up to 2.5Gbps, then I think it is okay for us for 1 Gbps.

The Firewall throughputs are showing the throughput based on the MTU (maximum transmission unit) - the smaller the size, the slower the throughput. But the 100D will be fine for your 1 Gbps bandwidth

Hi, want to ask since I'm not that familiar with firewall throughput. Here is the scenario, our client have 500Mbps internet speed and they have a cisco asa 5506-x. Upon checking on the datasheet of ASA 5506-x firewall throughput is only 250mbps. Is it enough to support a 500Mbps ISP link?. or they undersizing the firewall. Thanks for the response.
