Product Review

The Cisco MX65W-HW offers adequate performance for small branch applications with a stateful firewall throughput of 250 Mbps and the capability to manage up to 50 VPN tunnels, aligning well with its recommendation for up to 50 clients. However, its advanced security throughput is limited to 200 Mbps, and VPN throughput caps at 100 Mbps, which may constrain high-demand security tasks. With two dedicated WAN interfaces and built-in DHCP, NAT, QoS, and VLAN management services, it ensures reliable connectivity and network management, but the absence of web caching and a relatively low maximum power load could limit efficiency in more demanding network environments.


The Cisco MX65W-HW is designed to cater to the needs of small branches, providing a comprehensive solution for networking and security. This device supports up to 50 recommended clients, making it suitable for small-scale operations that require reliable connectivity and security measures. At the core of its performance, the MX65W-HW offers a stateful firewall throughput of 250 Mbps. This ensures efficient management of network traffic, safeguarding against unauthorized access while maintaining high-speed data transmission. For environments requiring advanced security features, such as intrusion prevention and malware protection, the device delivers an advanced security throughput of 200 Mbps. This capability ensures that even with enhanced security measures, the network's performance remains optimal. VPN connectivity is a critical feature for businesses with remote employees or multiple locations. The MX65W-HW supports a maximum VPN throughput of 100 Mbps, allowing secure and reliable remote connections. It can handle up to 50 concurrent VPN tunnels, providing flexibility and scalability for growing businesses. Connectivity options on the MX65W-HW are versatile: - Two dedicated WAN interfaces (2 GbE RJ45) allow for fast and reliable internet connections. - One USB port for cellular failover ensures continuous network availability, even if the primary connection fails. - Four fixed LAN interfaces (4 GbE RJ45) offer ample connectivity for local devices. Despite its powerful features, the MX65W-HW does not support web caching, focusing instead on core networking and security functions. Its design allows for either desktop or wall mounting, providing flexibility in deployment. The device measures 10 inches in width, 5.2 inches in depth, and stands 1 inch tall, with a weight of 3.37 lbs, making it compact and easy to integrate into various environments. Power efficiency is a key consideration for networking hardware. The MX65W-HW operates on a DC power supply, with an input voltage of 18 VDC. It maintains a low idle power load of 9 W, with a maximum power load of 79 W under full operation. This efficiency ensures that the device can deliver high performance without excessive energy consumption. Environmental resilience is another aspect of the MX65W-HW's design. It can operate within a temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C and can withstand humidity levels from 5% to 95%, ensuring reliability in various conditions. The MX65W-HW is equipped with built-in DHCP, NAT, QoS, and VLAN management services, streamlining network administration and enhancing performance. It features automatic detection of Layer 2 and Layer 3 outages, minimizing downtime. Additionally, the device is PCI compliant, with an IPS sensor type for advanced security measures. In summary, the Cisco MX65W-HW presents a comprehensive solution for small branches in need of secure, reliable networking. Its performance, connectivity options, and environmental resilience make it a valuable asset for businesses aiming to maintain high levels of network security and operational efficiency.
