Hi Hugo,

It would probably behoove you to contact Sales and/or your Sales SE as they might shed more light on capacity and features based on your environment. However, here's a previously posted link on Platform specs/matrix.

I would agree with rkalugdan to review the pdf file If 10k users were using just 1Mb of bandwidth (average) that would be 10Gbps which is a PA5060, assuming AppID and Threat Prevention were enabled on the FW.

Even if not all 10.000 employees would browse at the exact same moment the thing to watch out for is the SSL-capabilities (which if you ask me is a must nowadays).

If you just look at the bandwidth (assuming 1Gbps uplink) a PA-3050 or even 3020 "should" be enough - but if you can afford a PA-5060 then why not :-)

Specially when the difference regarding concurrent SSL sessions are:

(SSL decrypt sessions)

PA-5060: 90.000

PA-5050: 45.000

PA-5020: 15.000

PA-3050: 15.360

PA-3020: 7.936
