Telenet coax to 1gbps: make sure your firewall does not become the bottleneck!

Telenet increases at Corporate Fibernet the maximum download speed to 1gbps. How do you make sure your firewall doesn't become a bottleneck?

Cloud Services

In 2018, 40% of the Belgian companies made use of cloud services, which is considerably more than the 28% in 2016. And rightly so, because this new way of working offers very flexible solutions to enable your processes to function optimally and to achieve your objectives as a team. The basic requirement for making efficient use of this modern way of working is, of course, a fast internet connection.

Internet speed

All Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are working relentlessly to improve their networks. Telenet, for example, is now rolling out Corporate Fibernet with an increase in the maximum download speed to 1gbps. This is an extremely fast connection that will make cloud computing even more of a standard way of working.


You don't want valuable corporate data to be accessible just like that or for cyber criminals to attack your systems. A firewall protects your corporate network against unwanted visitors by scanning all traffic, and Fortinet's very popular FortiGate 60E and FortiGate 100E models have proven their reliability in this area for a long time and are generally considered to be the most advanced and high-performance firewalls.



It is good to know that your company network is protected by a reliable firewall, but do not let it become the bottleneck of your Internet connection. Make sure your firewall can handle the maximum download speed offered by your provider. The speed at which the traffic is scanned must therefore be higher than 1gbps. Fortinet expresses this as the Threat Protection Throughput. For the current standard, this brings you to the FG-200E model or higher.
