How many VPN sessions can vMX100 have ?

Dear, All

 

Now, I make design of NW using vMX100

Could you teach me how many site-to-site VPN sessions can vMX100 have?

# In datasheet, only 500Mbps throughput is written.

 

We’d like to make over 1000 VPNs, Can I?

Hi

I believe the vMX100 have the similar capabilities as a physical MX appliance

The following url on the Page No. 3 suggests upto 250 Max concurrent VPN tunnels.

Kind of a big deal

Re: How many VPN sessions can vMX100 have ?

As far as I know, vMX is sized equivalent to the regular MX100 as @AjitKumar suggests. Given then, 250 concurrent client VPN sessions is what you should shoot for as a max.

Hi, all

Thank you for replying!

 

Do you know how I can have over 250 VPNs using vMX?

And if you have design guide of VMX, please share me.

Getting noticed

Re: How many VPN sessions can vMX100 have ?

You could try launching multiple instances of vMX in AWS. Sites 1 to 200 would go to vMX1, sites 201 to 400 would go to vMX2, etc.

Kind of a big deal

Re: How many VPN sessions can vMX100 have ?

Unfortunately there are no deployment guides for the vMX yet other than the deployment instructions here: https://documentation.meraki.com/MX-Z/Installation_Guides/vMX100_Setup_Guide_for_Microsoft_Azurehttps://documentation.meraki.com/MX-Z/Installation_Guides/vMX100_Setup_Guide_for_Amazon_AWS

 

As @kevinl mentioned, you can deploy multiple vMX appliances to scale the VPN connections.
