All-In-One Gateways


Keep several parameters in mind as you begin your deliberations. For example, how many users will the network support? And how many will be on the network simultaneously? These numbers can have an impact on the licensing for certain features and will be the key to determining whether a particular appliance will have satisfactory performance for deployment.

Will the gateway be deployed at a branch office that will connect back to a central network, or will it be protecting the main enterprise network at its point of entry? The answer will help you decide which features are required on the device or which will be handled by other appliances. It will also help you choose a management interface that's appropriate for the device.
