4 out of 5.0, Reviewed Sep 20, 2016
The standard licensing (shaping) limitation of 45mbps is just not enough in today's world of high-bandwidth demand. We use the PS to shape WAN traffic for both MPLS and Internet and will now have to purchase the 100mbps upgrade, which is quite costly. I am almost sure that this 100mbps will also run to its limit in some of our locations soon.
I would recommend that you figure out the actual bandwidth requirements for where you would implement this device and go at least 50% higher if not more on the device. That would probably need to be the next level up Blue Coat device (PS 7500 or so) or another vendor
reliable product and service (shaping)
lower prices, offer higher bandwidth devices for the same cost
purchase the 100mbps from the start or look to another product that offers the same capabilities with higher shaping limits and less cost.
we wish it had more bandwidth available for shaping
