Nokia IP690 & pfsense – Bandwidth


This is long overdue and I was reminded of that by a comment asking what the throughput looks like for this configuration. So, without further ado, here are some bandwidth numbers from iperf3 passing through a Nokia IP-690 running pfsense. Note this is on my live network so there is other traffic present and lots of other variables like switches and so forth, it is not a clean pass only through the IP-690.
