Helps us to aggregate/manage bandwidth from two ISPs, as a fail-safe

How has it helped my organization?

Helps us to aggregate/manage bandwidth from two ISPs, as a fail-safe.

What is most valuable?

Bandwidth Management and aggregation. It is valuable for combining two ISPs. Switching to a secondary/redundant ISP is thus seamless, in the event that the primary ISP goes down. 

The Bandwidth Management is also valuable for limiting heavy downloaders that may impact negatively on the experience of other users.

What needs improvement?

Needs a mail alert/notification when the device loses any of its connections, during ISP redundancy implementation.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No scalability issues.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No previous solution.

How was the initial setup?

My network engineers were able to find their way around it in a short time.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It’s value for the money.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Check Point, Fortinet.

What other advice do I have?

I give it an eight out of 10. It’s functionally competitive with higher priced alternative brands.
