As a point of reference, the advantage of the Netgate 5100 is discrete, unswitched 1 Gbps ports, but it lacks the 10 Gbps capability of the Netgate 6100. The advantage of the Netgate 7100 is 10 Gbps capability, but the LAN ports are limited to a total of 2.5 Gbps throughput across the 8 switched ports.

The Netgate 6100 provides maximum flexibility for both 1 and 10 Gbps WAN capabilities across RJ45, SFP, and SFP+ ports, as well as 4 discrete, unswitched 2.5 Gbps LAN ports.

The Netgate 6100 features 16 GB eMMC. There will also be an optional storage upgrade version, the Netgate 6100 Max featuring 128 GB eMMC. There is a wall mount option available.
