Routing Performance

NOTE!Testing Notes:
WAN to LAN tests are all run with LAN endpoint in DMZ
LAN to WAN tests are run with LAN endpoint not in DMZ, except UDP Stream

The numbers in the chart pretty much tell the story. The Broadcom processor provides plenty of routing power. Especially impressive is the fact that the UDP streaming results show no degradation in speed and no packet loss.

I also ran 10 second IxChariot tests in both directions which looked pretty good and are shown in Figure 7.
