I have two data centers for redundancy, each with a balance 710 (soon to be replaced with balance 2500s). Remote sites have max-br1 with cellular backup.
for most locations the 2 pepvpn limit is not an issue, but I am running into some locations where I really need a third vpn connection. Right now I will have to set those up as ipsec vpn.
I do not want to jump all the way to a 20 VPN capable, $2,000 unit just to have access to 3 or 4 connections. There is a rather large jump from the 2 vpn to the 20 in the product line.
I know that there are good reasons to limit the number of vpn connection. One is available CPU power, the other is for product segmentation. But since my two connections are there for redundancy AND there is only about 800K max of traffic from each remote site, I know the max-br1 could handle more, if it was “allowed to”.
Any chance of adding a license option for the smaller units like the MAX-BR1, similar to that on the 305? i.e. for a couple of hundred Dollars add ability to go to say 5 PEPVPN connections instead of 2? Keep the max limit still low compared to the larger units, but fill in that gap.
