PIX or VPN concentrator

Hello,

Suppose if I have 120 sites and I want to establish VPN tunnels with the central site should I go with a PIX or a VPN concentrator at the central site.

Also how much tunnels a PIX handle and how much a concentrator handle.

Thanks.

Re: PIX or VPN concentrator

Hi, here is a couple links that might help you out…

If this were going to be a fully meshed topology, I would go with a 3030 Concentrator. With the concentrator, you can setup a hub and spoke environment and configure it to route traffic as if it were fully meshed. The PIX 515UR would do the job, but a PIX does not route traffic in a hub and spoke environment so you would have to configure each remote device to talk to the other 119 locations.

The 3030 looks like it's $22,000 msrp

The 515UR looks like it's $7995 msrp

Hope that helps….
