Router vs. SpeedFusion throughput


#1

Dear Guys ,

If I have two Balance 380 devices connected using SF and they use 60Mbps SF throughput , then how much router throughput remains for Internet load balancing ?
Which statement is correct ?

1- Balance 380 can support up to 60Mbps SF and up to 200Mbps router throughput simultaneously.
2- Balance 380 can support up to 140Mbps router throughput for Internet load balancing if all 60Mbps SF throughput is used.
3- Balance 380 can not do any Internet load balancing if all 60Mbps SF throughput has been used.

Please make it more clear for me.

Thanks - Hootan

Hello,

The throughput figures given are the maximums while running a single type of traffic ( 200 Mbps non-vpn or 60 Mbps SF ).
None of the 3 options is correct. Throughput of mixed traffic will depend on ratio of traffic types going through router.
These we be less than the maximums and dependant on your specific scenario.

Thanks for the reply,

Okay , I’m looking to have a formula helping to choose the device model based on SF and router throughput needed.
