Re: What to get for the house

said by macallah:

The 3745 is very noisy with all its cooling fans running at full speed 24/7.

Agreed with you there macallah, though IIRC when I was looking into a 3745 I did come across a webpage where a
person replaced the fans with quiet / lowflow fans with no impact to performance or temp alarms, and got a MUCH
quieter device overall.

said by macallah:

it does not run a modern IOS and I like to tinker with it

Define 'modern'. IIRC Cisco did bring it up to the last revisions of the 12.4T IOS, and there's not much in
15.x that 12.4T can't do in my view.

Third it only has 100mbit connections if the cable system gets an upgrade eventually

said by macallah:

what if the provider goes up in speed in the future? A 5510 with secplus license is over 2k.

Agree with you there. Don't know when consumer GigE connectivity will be available, but I want to be prepared for it,
and Cisco products seem to lag on it -- ASA5550 if that -- or are bloody expensive to do it -- ASR 1K w/ ESP2.5.

On the Juniper side, the SRX220 is VERY tempting at 8x GigE interfaces and 950Mbps (claimed) thruput.

Not sure what else in the enterprise arena people have come across that has GigE interfaces and Gig thruput with services on.

I recently asked for quote between SRX 210, 220, and 240. The price difference between 220 and 240 are not much, however 240 is much more powerful. I would not recommend anyone to use 220 model since people should jump to 240 when 210 model is insufficient unless Juniper can lower the price

I guess you have not listened to either of those products...

@aryoba
From the two or three sources I checked, the delta between a 220 and a 240 was about 1K... so up to the buyer's wallet / purchase order.

I also have to question about Juniper -- and indeed any vendor's -- claim that a device can move more than 100Mbps
traffic with only FE interfaces. I'm not sure what they're smoking or what math they're using...

that's simple really, Think trunks/port-channels... Also, since most Junos is virtualized, you could be talking about multiple firewalls pushing across multiple trunks.

Sounds more like a marketing number than actual throughput number to me...

it comes pretty close to around 500mbps+ which far more what an asa5505 could do...
