Enterprise Firewall for an ISP

By gcmayya ·
Currently we are looking for Firewall
which can support satellite ISP
network. We are providing internet
service to multiple customers. Total
traffic is around 100 Mbps
(Uplink/Downlink. Total
sessions(TCP)around 30000 to 50000.
Current setup of Sonicwall 4060 with
HA hangs up intermittently eventhough
UTM options are disabled. Discussed
with various vendors resulted in more
confusion. Can anyone suggest any
enterprise firewall suitable for this
kind of application

Were using ZyWALL 35 UTM of ZyXEL here at our office and to my evaluation its works really fine. Try to evaluate their ZyWALL 70 UTM you may find it interesting also try to search via net cisco models firewalls, the thing is its more expensive than ZyXEL products.

If you are looking for Windows box solution you may find useful solution on .
It is able to manage Gbit speeds. But 50000 TCP connections is quite high number. It is important also if you need TCP inspection (NAT) at all.
