Hardware Features on Entry Level Devices

PaloAlto Needs to consider some physical features to be included in the SMB sector cleints. A competitor is preferred because of including more ports in their entry level devices including SFP (10GE) slots

PAN really doesn't cater to the SMB market as they're unlikely to actually purchase license subscriptions. That's not an official answer of course, it's only my personal opinion. 


The logical answer is of course that competitors that may be including 10Gb interfaces on their entry hardware can't actually make use of that bandwidth in almost all cases. So you might have a higher speed interface, but the hardware isn't capable of handling traffic anywhere near that speed. So logically why include an interface that your hardware can't actually take advantage of?
