how to choose Firewall with connect to core switch Like 9500 for Wifi6


have question about design network enterprise So if we need to design Wifi 6

We will select access switch like 9200 or 9300 and have port Mgig uplink 25 or 40

for support AP Cisco Wii 6 So next and Core Switch downlink 25,40 and Uplink 100G So if customer need firewall protection before access internet we need sizing firewall port 100G right or we just use port 1G for connect to ISP router and access internet 


I think use a lot of cost for this anyone please explain

If you are looking for a great firewall with 100 Gig ports and L2-L7 capabilities, have a look at the Palo 5400 series,

@Reza Sharifi is correct and I agree -- Palo Alto has been consistently "king of the hill" for firewall for >5 years (based on Gartner Magic Quadrant).
