I'm looking for a security device that can handle VLANs on the WAN side.

Like virtual WAN interfaces; one for each VLAN

I'm hoping something like the SA540 can do it.

Any suggestions?

SA500 today supports only vlan on LAN ports.  vlan/sub-interfaces over WAN is not supported.

You may want to check out Cisco IOS 800 router or ASA that should support what you are looking for.

On the other hand, I am interested in understanding what you are trying to accomplish with subinterface support over WAN?

i.e. sub-interface based application service provided by local ISP? or?  Feel free to send me through private message if preferred.

Could this be placed on the roadmap for the SA540?

It would really make this device top shelf.

I would use this to consolidate my WAN links (I currently have four).

I want to send all the WAN links to different VLANs on a switch and have one or two Trunks out of the switch to the SA540 WAN(s).

This would allow me to have more than two WAN links.
