What is IPSec VPN throughput?

If your business uses site-to-site VPNs, IPSec throughput is the amount of network traffic that can pass through the firewall and the encrypted tunnel to your remote site (or users). Nowadays, most decent firewalls use hardware encryption so IPSec figures should be similar to the overall throughput of your device.

What is Cisco 1841?

How is VPN throughput calculated?

Calculate your expected throughput by taking the least bandwidth of either the VM, VPN Gateway, or ISP; which is measured in Megabits-per-second (/) divided by eight (8).

How is VPN bandwidth calculated?

First, if you’re connected to the VPN, disconnect and run a speed test. The easiest way to test your connection speed is by visiting a speed-test website like SpeedTest.net, which is run by analytics company Ookla. There are alternative sites, like Fast.com, but SpeedTest is generally considered to be the best.

What is VPN capacity?

The maximum safe packet size on an IPsec VPN is 1,328 bytes. Most internet links are limited to packets no larger than 1,500 bytes, and the difference enables IPsec and other frequently used protocol headers. Add the TCP/IP header of 40 bytes for an unencrypted packet size of 1,368.
