Product Review

The Fortinet FG-500D offers a balanced set of features for network infrastructure, with eight GE RJ45 interfaces and eight GE SFP slots, providing flexibility in connectivity options. However, its power consumption, peaking at 202W under maximum load, could be a concern for environments striving for energy efficiency. Additionally, the unit's solid local storage capacity of 120 GB SSD supports efficient data management and logging, which is critical for high-traffic networks.


The Fortinet FG-500D is a high-performance network security appliance designed to meet the demanding needs of mid-sized to large enterprises. This device is engineered to provide superior firewall capabilities, integrated security functionalities, and high-speed connectivity. Its compact form factor and substantial data throughput capabilities make it an ideal choice for organizations looking to secure their networks without sacrificing performance. With dimensions of 1.73 inches in height, 17 inches in width, and 12.68 inches in length, the FG-500D occupies 1 Rack Unit (RU) in standard server racks, ensuring an efficient use of space in crowded data centers. The unit's weight is 10.8 lbs (4.9 kg), making it manageable for installation and maintenance. In terms of power, the device operates on a 100–240V AC power source, with an average power consumption of 113W and can reach up to 202W under maximum load. Despite its power, the FG-500D is designed to be efficient with a heat dissipation rate of 690 BTU/h, ensuring that it remains cool under heavy operational loads. It operates optimally within a temperature range of 32°F (0°C) to 104°F (40°C) and can be stored in temperatures ranging from -31°F (-35°C) to 158°F (70°C). The device maintains its performance up to an altitude of 7,400 ft (2,250 m), and operates in environments with humidity levels between 20% and 90% non-condensing, showcasing its reliability across various conditions. The FG-500D offers a range of connectivity options to cater to diverse network architectures: - 8 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) RJ45 interfaces and 8 GE Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) slots for high-speed network connections. - 2 GE RJ45 management ports for dedicated network management pathways. - 1 USB client and 2 USB server ports for local console management and external storage connectivity. - 1 RJ45 console port for direct device management. - The inclusion of 120 GB SSD local storage provides ample space for logs, reports, and firmware. Furthermore, the device comes with 2 included SFP (SX 1 GE) transceivers to facilitate immediate deployment in fiber-optic networks, enhancing its out-of-the-box readiness for diverse networking environments. The FG-500D excels in data throughput, delivering IPv4 firewall throughput rates of 16 Gbps across various packet sizes (1518 / 512 / 64 byte, UDP), ensuring that network security does not become a bottleneck in high-traffic environments. This capability ensures that the device can handle substantial data flows while maintaining strict security measures, making it an essential component of any network security strategy. In summary, the Fortinet FG-500D combines efficient power usage, robust connectivity options, and high throughput capabilities, making it a comprehensive solution for securing enterprise networks.
