Router o Firewall

Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:39 pm

The RB3011UiAS-RM is a router or a FireWall? I need to buy a firewall, does this equipment help me?
Thank you.

Forget name calling, please state your requirements without any reference to equipment
What is it that you want to accomplish (functionality space, NOT solution space)
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)

The RB3011 is a router with firewalling capability. This is a rack mount unit, so you might also consider the RB4011 which comes in a compact form.

I have replaced a rb2011 with which managed 65 users through simple queues, qos via queue tree, balancing loads of 3 wan via vlans, more than 30 firewall rules and another 30 in mangle. in the peak hour 60 megs were spent with an average use of 70% to 90% cpu.
