Product Review

The Fortinet FG-601E offers a comprehensive suite of connectivity options, including 2 10 GE SFP+ slots, 8 GE SFP slots, and 8 GE RJ45 interfaces, catering to diverse network infrastructures and facilitating high-speed connections. However, its power consumption, peaking at 244W with a maximum current draw of 6A at 100V, may pose considerations for energy efficiency and operational costs in environments with high usage demands. Additionally, the unit's noise level at 59 dBA could be a concern in quiet office settings, despite its efficient heat dissipation of 832 BTU/h, ensuring stable operations within a broad temperature range.


The Fortinet FG-601E is a high-performance network security appliance designed to meet the needs of mid-sized to large enterprises. It delivers powerful security and networking services in a compact 1 Rack Unit (RU) form factor, making it an efficient solution for securing complex network environments. The device dimensions are 1.75 inches in height, 17.0 inches in width, and 15.0 inches in length, which translates to 44.45 mm in height, 432 mm in width, and 380 mm in length, respectively. This model operates on an AC power supply ranging from 100–240V AC, with a frequency of 60–50 Hz. In terms of energy consumption, it has an average power consumption of 129W and can reach a maximum of 244W under full load, with a current maximum of 6A at 100V. The FG-601E's heat dissipation is rated at 832 BTU/h, ensuring it remains within operational temperatures with a noise level of 59 dBA. The operating environment for the FG-601E is quite flexible, with a minimum operating temperature of 32°F (0–40°C) and a maximum of 104°F (40°C). It can be stored in conditions ranging from -31°F (-35°C) to 158°F (70°C), with humidity tolerance of 10–90% non-condensing. This device is suitable for deployment in locations with an altitude of up to 7,400 ft (2,250 m), accommodating a wide range of environmental conditions. Networking capabilities are robust, featuring: - 2 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ slots - 8 Gigabit Ethernet SFP slots - 8 Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 interfaces - 2 Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 management ports For local storage, the FG-601E is equipped with two 240 GB Solid State Drives (SSDs), ensuring quick access to logs and other data. It also comes with two SFP (SX 1 GE) transceivers included, facilitating immediate deployment in networks requiring fiber connectivity. Performance metrics are critical for network security appliances, and the FG-601E delivers impressive throughput rates. For IPv4 traffic, it achieves a firewall throughput of 36 Gbps for larger packets (1518 bytes) and maintains this rate for medium-sized packets (512 bytes), with a slightly lower rate of 27 Gbps for small packets (64 bytes). The IPv6 firewall throughput mirrors these figures, ensuring no compromise in performance when handling modern IP traffic. Additionally, the firewall latency for small packets (64 byte, UDP) is minimal at 2 microseconds, emphasizing the FG-601E's capability to manage traffic efficiently without significant delay. In summary, the Fortinet FG-601E combines a compact, efficient design with high-performance networking and security features. Its comprehensive connectivity options, resilient storage capabilities, and powerful throughput performance make it an ideal choice for organizations looking to secure their networks without compromising on speed or reliability.
