Recomendation for 130 user aprox.

Hello people, I hope you are well. I come from miklrotik and now I have to check out a residential (for older people). I see that it has a mikrotik 951, in the ARP table I see 111 entries, and in the DHCP server there are 132 records. It has a 1Gb drop and a 500M rise. What Fortinet Router can you recommend?

Tank You!!!

For all routing features, no license is needed with any FortiGates.

Thank for that, here i found a 60E, it'll work?
The first that i search is the IPS Throughput. What another thing i have to search?

The 60E has reached EOO(End of Order) Dec. 2021 and EOS(End of Support) in Dec. 2026. It would still work as a router but firmware updates wouldn't be available after that point, like for vulnerability fixes.

If no UTM/UTP features is necessary (you can't buy the license any more after EOO anyway) it would probably work fine for the capacity.

 

<edit>Unless you find/get a unit with active support license you wouldn't be able to get support either.</edit>

Apart from the device, do I have to pay for a license? I just need a Router

I just want to warn you that without the support, you can't download the latest available firmware. So if the particular firmware you get the unit with has some specific problems/bugs related to the routing features you need, you might not be able to solve the problem. The chances are not too high though.
