    Hi @Weerapong ,

    Greeting Forum, I assum you will have UTM feature and the each End Client have 3MB/s traffic. (General Condition) .

    Looking for the UTM throughput in Datasheet, Here are the mount Firewall can afford.

    ATP800: (1900/8/3) = 80

    FLEX700: (1450/8/3) = 60

    USG310: (550/8/3) = 23

    Note:

    -Test condition:

    Anti-malware (with Express mode) and IPS throughput measured using the industry standard HTTP performance test (1,460-byte HTTP packets). Testing done with multiple flows.

    -These data can be influenced by various factors, so they are provided for reference only. Additionally, we do not recommend using the USG310 as it has been EOL.

    Thank you

    Hi @Weerapong ,

    Please kindly find those value in Datasheet.

    For example: ATP800 with 1900 UTM Throughput.

    so 1900bit/s divide 8 = 237.5 Btyte/s

    237.5 divide 3 (each client traffic) = 80 .

    Find the ATP800, FLEX700 datasheet.

    https://download.zyxel.com/USG_FLEX_700/datasheet/USG%20FLEX%20700_10.pdf

    Thank you

    Hi @Weerapong ,

    No matter if it's ATP800 or Flex700, both have higher performance than USG310.

    ATP is default bundled with a one-year Gold Security Pack license. If you need all UTM features, you can choose ATP series.

    If you are not quite sure if all UTM features are necessary in your network, you can chooses USG FLEX with bundled UTM Security Pack. After the 1-year UTM Security licenses are expired, you can then choose Gold Security Pack or UTM Security Pack based on your needs.

    Thank you

    @weerapong license packs are "optional" and provide more services (under yearly fee) that might or might not interest or be necessary to your use.
