    I was skeptical reading the marketing speak about this - but I'm honestly VERY excited about this product. We've deployed Zyxel USG (and now FLEX/ATP) gateways to business clients for years and they love them (as do we). We don't manage them via Nebula because it limits so much in terms of configurability of a USG/FLEX/ATP that we sometimes need for our business clients. But they're so stable - we've been fine with VPN management and Secureporter/Email data delivery.

    But as an MSP we've always wanted to be able to deploy a manageable gateway for residential/small business clients. This checks all the boxes. The KEY thing for us will be this. Can the gateway be individually managed by the user via the Nebula app on their own account, while it's tied into our MSP Nebula account for network monitoring and management (and residual monthly income). This would be the ultimate offering. We're going to order a couple regardless. But while we get you're marketing this directly to end users, don't lose sight that there is a significant market segment that many MSPs know is there, but is too much background effort to serve (we've tried all sorts of solutions. Ubiquiti AirCubes linked into UNMS and using DNSFilter for filtering? It sort of worked - for us. But customers got little visibility except the DNS filter reports, etc).

    So anyway - looking forward to playing with this. But if you haven't factored in how MSPs could leverage this platform for an underserved client base - I hope you do. This could be a heck of an offering!

    What is the throughput this device can handle on the WAN interface? Since different models have different throughput.
