First, I have only 1 client with watchguard hardware (an XTM21 at 1 office and x10e at the other end).

The VPN between them isn't working.  the x10e is out of support.  To buy a year (the  most they offer for that model), it woudl cost $210 with the reinstatement fee (support expired months ago).

Another option they said was to do an trade up and for $450 we could get an XTM25 w/ 1 year of support.

In speaking with them, they said I could buy from NewEgg rather than distributor

would this work?

or this comes with the 1 year of support?

I would say go with the XTM25 with 1 year of support, second option.

Thank you.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
Quality of Service (QoS) options are nearly endless when it comes to networks today. This article is merely one example of how it can be handled in a hub-n-spoke design using a 3-tier configuration.
