Netgate SG-3100 is an ARM based pfSense Firewall Appliance

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/04

By now I should have had plenty of time to try out an ARM based pfSense multi-WAN router like the [WayBack]  Netgate SG-3100 is an ARM based pfSense Firewall Appliance.

So this is a reminder for myself to write down more detailed experiences than the summary at [WayBack]Netgate SG-3100 pfSense Security Gateway Appliance.

It is in the Mikrotik price range, but each time I use those I bump into mysterious RouterOS issues that only I seem to have.

Dean Bubley’s Disruptive Wireless: Debunking the Network QoS myth

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/09

QoS doesn’t work, except for one specific scenario:

Where QoS works is where one organisation controls both ends of a connection AND also tightly-defines and controls the applications:

  • A fixed-broadband provider can protect IP telephony & IPTV on home broadband between central office & the home gateway.An enterprise can build a private network & prioritise its most important application(s), plus maybe a connection to a public cloud or UCaaS service.
  • Mobile operators can tune a 4G network to prioritise VoLTE.
  • Telco core and transport networks can apply differential QoS to particular wholesale customers, or to their own various retail requirements (eg enterprise users’ data vs. low-end consumers, or cell-site timing signals and backhaul vs. user data).
  • Industrial process & control systems use a variety of special realtime connection protocols and networks. Vendors of “OT” (operational technology) tend to view IT/telecoms and TCP/IP as quaint. The IT/OT boundary is the real “edge”.

This is not news, but it’s worthwhile repeating: it is actually cheaper to build a network that can carry the traffic than building a network that keeps quality promises on a backbone that is undersized or close to capacity. Overprovisioning works, everything else does not, economically as well as technically.
