Product Review

The Fortinet FG-101E offers high firewall throughput rates, up to 7.4 Gbps for larger packets, ensuring efficient data processing and network protection. However, it lacks included transceivers, necessitating additional purchases for specific connectivity needs. With a versatile range of ports and an SSD for internal storage, it supports complex network configurations but operates within a relatively narrow temperature range, potentially limiting deployment environments.


The Fortinet FG-101E is a network security appliance designed to meet the demands of small to mid-sized businesses and branch offices. This device integrates seamlessly into rack mount setups, being a 1 RU form factor, and ensures compatibility with standard data center configurations. It measures 1.75 inches in height, 17 inches in width, and 10 inches in depth, making it compact and efficient for rack installations. This security appliance operates efficiently within a broad range of power supplies, accepting 100–240V AC at 60–50 Hz. Its power consumption is notably efficient, with an average of 24.8 W and peaking at 27.5 W, which translates into heat dissipation of 87.0 BTU/h. The noise level is approximately 93.8 BTU/h, ensuring a relatively quiet operation. Designed to perform in diverse environments, the FG-101E functions within a temperature range of 32°F (0°C) to 104°F (40°C) and can be stored from -31°F (-35°C) to 158°F (70°C). Humidity tolerance ranges from 10% to 90% non-condensing, enabling this device to operate in a variety of climatic conditions. Furthermore, it can operate at altitudes of up to 7,400 ft (2,250 m), providing flexibility for deployment in various geographical locations. Connectivity options on the FG-101E are extensive: - 14 GE RJ45 ports for high-speed local network connections. - Dedicated GE RJ45 ports for management, High Availability (HA), and Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) configurations, including 1 for management, 2 for HA, and 1 for DMZ. - Two GE RJ45 WAN ports for secure and reliable internet connectivity. - Dual GE RJ45 or SFP shared ports, offering flexibility for fiber connectivity. - A USB port and a console port for local management and file transfers. The internal storage includes a 480 GB SSD, ensuring ample space for logs, reports, and software updates. In terms of performance, the FG-101E delivers exceptional firewall throughput rates of 7.4 Gbps for larger packets (1518 bytes) and 512 bytes, and 4.4 Gbps for smaller packets (64 bytes), with a UDP protocol. Its firewall latency is ultra-low at 3 μs for 64-byte UDP packets, minimizing the delay for time-sensitive applications. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • Power Consumption: 24.8 W average, 27.5 W maximum
  • Heat Dissipation: 87.0 BTU/h
  • Firewall Throughput: 7.4 Gbps (1518/512 byte), 4.4 Gbps (64 byte)
The Fortinet FG-101E is designed to provide secure, high-speed network connectivity with efficient power usage, extensive connectivity options, and high-performance throughput rates, making it a suitable choice for businesses looking to secure their networks without compromising on performance or operational costs.
