  • There is no hard limit but there is a soft limit based on the size of the appliance, which appliance are we talking about?

  • We have the following models used right now:

    head office using CR1000iNG-XP (SFOS 16.05.5 MR-5)

    one of our branches using CR25iNG (SFOS 16.05.2 MR-2)

    one another branch is using XG125 (SFOS 17.0.8 MR-8)

    Thank you

  • I can't really comment on the Cyberoam side of things as I don't know the performance around those devices too well.

    But I would suggest the XG125 would have a soft limit (for performance) of around 30. Don't hold me to that because I am struggling to find the documentation of recommended number of APs

  • Hi,

    Just to confirm what Emile said, we make a recommendation based upon the size of appliance. It will also depend upon whether you are using the firewall/UTM solely as a Wireless controller or using other protection features as well.

    The attached chart gives you an indication for XG appliances and you can check the model specs under www.sophos.com/compare-xg to see which is equivalent to your CR models.

    This recommendation is intended for best performance and assumes the unit is being used predominantly as a Wireless controller and does not have all protection features activated.

    Hope this helps to answer your question.

    Best regards

    Barbara

  • Hi,

    is this information still valid for the latest SFOS software version and APX models?

  • APX uses the same technique as AP Series. So the information should be valid.
