Palo Alto Debuts 120 Gbps Network Firewall

In terms of raw throughput, Palo Alto claims that the PA-7050 can deliver up PA-7050to 120 Gbps of traffic. Matt Keil, director of product marketing at Palo Alto Networks, explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that the top-end throughput is 120 Gbps, measured using HTTP traffic.

"HTTP is an important distinction because it more accurately mimics the type of traffic on a customer network," Keil said. "Prior to the PA-7050, the top end was 20 Gbps."
