I'm planning to buy an MX 100 for one of my remote sites. My initial plan was to connect a 600 Mbps DSL now my provider said they can give 1000/125 Mbps. I was checking the MX spec and it says 750 Mbps only. does it mean I wont be able to see a download speed more than 750 Mbps?
Ok, the spec talks about 750 Mbps firewall throughput but I will be using the MX just to provide Internet connectivity not for any specific firewall rules.
I suspect even if you are not running the firewall there will be some processing taking place. Chances are it has a gigabit link (hardware side) but it is not able to process at line speed - like a switch. Hence they are stating 750mbs. If you do not have a bunch of rules, then chances are you will be doing well. 750mbs is not to shabby really for a device like this. At home I have a router / firewall (non-meraki) and it is limited to 100mbs 😞
