We need 10G WAN connectivity!

10G ISP connections are getting more and more commonplace and the prices keep dropping.  My dream-list asks:

 

- An MX that supports 10G on the WAN and L3 interfaces.  I'm having a harder time pitching the MX450 as a solution with only 6Gb max firewall throughput.  I don't need advanced features, just doing what you already do so well, but at 10G.  It's great that I can use SFP+ and run fiber today, but that 6Gb limitation is starting to get constricting.  I've been buying Palo Alto firewalls as a solution until Meraki has an option.

 

Call it the MX550.

Kind of a big deal

Re: We need 10G WAN connectivity!

What throughput are you getting from your MX450?

 

I wouldn't be surprised if you don't have everything enabled you will get more throughput.

It seems to have a hard 6Gb cap.  I don't run anything special, it's just basically a really fast NAT firewall.  I hoped that they would let it go all the way to the interface speed and cut it down if you are using a lot of features.

Re: We need 10G WAN connectivity!

I'd suggest that your best option would probably be to get in touch with your local Meraki SE.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Meraki has some ways to circumvent the hard cap from their view. But I have absolutely no idea, and I doubt it is at all supported. You'll probably be on your own.
