Recently we have been bombarded with many queries regarding whether this or that FortiGate model can get this kind of speed (500Mbps or 800Mbps) when using PPPoE.
Most of the queries come from customers that use a range of models from 50 to 100 (D, C, and F).
Following KB and forums, we ask them to do many things such as:
1. checking MTU size,
2. verify interface speed,
3. either use UTM on the firewall policy or not,
4. verify if the ISP guarantees the speed
5. Can get the speed if using ISP's router
6. and more
Aside from needing to check and troubleshoot, is there any clear answer or baseline on which models can support 500Mbps/800Mbps? I read somewhere that this issue is related to the CPU of the firewall itself.
Let's say a customer wants to buy a new firewall to cater to a small office with at most 30-50 active users and ask if 60F or 80F is suitable and can reach 500Mbps/800Mbps.
