Additionally, firewall appliances will be collocated with each campus border node, providing more traditional border firewall functionality, between the various Layer 3 routing domains and the Internet. The firewall appliance must provide at least internal and external 1 gigabit, 10 gigabit, 40 gigabit and 100 gigabit ethernet interfaces, Multiple gigabit ethernet interfaces in a port aggregation group would be preferable.
