Routing Performance

I put the 3300 through our suite of router tests, with the results summarized in Table 1.

Test Description Throughput - (Mbps)
Total Simultaneous
Maximum Simultaneous Connections 124
Firmware Version
Table 1: Routing throughput

Unidirectional routing throughput tops out at just under 90 Mbps. But simultaneous bi-directional throughput is right at 100 Mbps. Maximum Simultaneous sessions measured only 124, about par for the course for current Broadcom-based routers.

Figure 3 shows the composite WAN to LAN, LAN to WAN and simultaneous up/down IxChariot throughput tests. Throughput is generally smooth, with only occasional short dropouts.

As usual, I put the LAN client in DMZ in order to get the IxChariot WAN > LAN tests to complete. But I initially didn't disable SPI. I found, however, that the IxChariot traffic was being seen as a DoS attack during the Maximum Simultaneous Connections tests and being blocked. So I disabled SPI to finish running the tests.

Use the Router Charts to see how the 3300 stacks up against other routers.
