Hi, we need to find out a proper Cisco routing/switching platform with integrated FW. I focus on Cat 4503-e with Supervisor 6-e. Its overall throughput is 320 Gbits, ethernet port is capable to work at wirespeed. But no datasheet does clarify throughput at activated IOS firewall.
Could you clarify FW performance at Cat4500? Thanks
Re: Cat 4503-E with Sup-6E anf Firewall performance
The AGM module on the Cat 4500 will support Firewall Feature Set. Security options include firewall, intrusion detection system (IDS), Network Address Translation (NAT) and hardware-based IP security (IPsec) with 3DES data encryption for secure VPN or public Internet connectivity.
