Product Review

The Fortinet FMC-XG2 offers impressive firewall throughput rates, with up to 18Gbps for larger packets and a solid 4.5Gbps for smaller 64 byte UDP packets, showcasing its capability to handle various types of network traffic efficiently. However, its limitation to only two SFP+ expansion slots may restrict scalability in larger, more complex network environments. Additionally, the device's power consumption is reasonable for its performance level, peaking at 81.6W, making it a relatively energy-efficient choice for businesses prioritizing both performance and operating cost.


The FORTINET FMC-XG2 is a high-performance networking hardware device designed to meet the needs of demanding network environments. It features two total expansion slots and supports SFP+ expansion slot type, enhancing its connectivity and scalability options. The device is equipped with two network interfaces, both of which are hardware-accelerated 10-GbE SFP+ interfaces, ensuring high-speed data transmission and efficient network operations. This model does not include hardware-accelerated 1-GbE SFP interfaces or 10/100/1000 interfaces, focusing instead on high-bandwidth applications. It comes with two SR SFP+ transceivers, facilitating immediate deployment and connectivity to high-speed networks. In terms of performance, the FMC-XG2 delivers impressive throughput rates. For firewall throughput, it achieves 18Gbps with 1518 byte UDP packets, 17Gbps with 512 byte UDP packets, and 4.5Gbps with 64 byte UDP packets. Its IPSec VPN throughput is notable at 6Gbps for 512 byte packets. The device also offers an IPS throughput of 2.5Gbps and an antivirus throughput of 2Gbps when operating in a flow-based mode.
  • Power consumption is optimized, with an average consumption of 68W and a maximum of 81.6W, making it an energy-efficient choice.
  • It dissipates 278 BTU/h, balancing performance with environmental considerations.
  • The internal storage capacity of 256 GB supports extensive data and application requirements.
With a firewall latency of just 4 μs for 64 byte UDP packets, the FMC-XG2 ensures minimal delay in data processing, maintaining high-speed network communication. It supports a wide range of virtual domains, offering flexibility with default support for 10 and a maximum capacity of 500 virtual domains. This feature allows for extensive network segmentation and customization according to organizational needs. The device can manage a significant number of FortiAPs, with a capacity for up to 4,096 in total and 1,024 in tunnel mode, demonstrating its capability to handle large-scale wireless deployments. Additionally, it supports up to 5,000 FortiTokens and 8,000 registered FortiClients, underlining its suitability for environments with extensive user and device management requirements. Physically, the FMC-XG2 measures 5.25 x 17.5 x 27.65 inches (133 x 444 x 702 mm) and weighs 60.0 lb (27 Kg), indicating its robust build quality and suitability for rack mounting, which is supported. In summary, the FORTINET FMC-XG2 stands out as a powerful and efficient networking solution, designed for organizations requiring high throughput, low latency, and extensive device and application support. Its focus on high-speed interfaces, coupled with significant storage capacity and support for a large number of devices, makes it a versatile and capable component of any modern network infrastructure.
