Hardware for gbit line



  • I'm getting a full gbit line and well wanted to buy a 2558 board but it seems to be getting EOL.

    so speed 1000/1000 over PPPOE.
    at least 2 intel ports
    minimally 100mbit VPN preferably higher.
    packages like snort and squid.

    now I have 2 roads I can walk
    1 is
    Celeron G4400 with a Gigabyte GA-Z170N-WIFI board

    The other is Supermicro X10SDV-4C-TLN4F Xeon D1518

    The difference is that the 1st option is 3x cheaper.



  • Where do you see that C2558 is going to EOL?
    Celeron G4400 will be able to give gigabit routing capability already, even lower end N2930, 1037U, J1900/N3150/N3700 will do the job.

    Here in Germany the C2358, C2558 and the C2758 are all to get the hands on! From where you are (country)?

    so speed 1000/1000 over PPPOE.

    Then go with an Intel Core 2 Duo or Intel Core i3, i5, i7 (embedded) or Xeon E3 CPU that is
    handling that speed with eases and more on top.

    at least 2 intel ports
    minimally 100mbit VPN preferably higher.
    packages like snort and squid.

    Then a qaud core CPU or SoC might be the better option for you! It might be better
    for all together I mean the 1 GBit/s, the Squid and Snort on top.

    You are prisoner of your own mind, you have more options then that, but often not in the same
    price range like the named by yours. This one might be to low or not string enough.
