    Jim and I are about to start getting creative, I'm not happy with what we've got on the horizon but at least we'll have something.

    The pandemic is all but destroyed the SOC market unless you're a large enough player to place orders for hundreds of units and willing to wait six months.
    So do you have a small appliance in the works?

    Yes, but the platform has a power level that's somewhere between the z6 and z12. You will never see something from me like the z4, the only way to get a price that matches that is to purchase complete garbage that compromises either on thermal and physical qualities such that it won't survive my desert climate here at home or compromising supply chain integrity. The latter is a huge problem, and I do not believe you can call something secure when it's being purchased from factories that are known to have a history of problems in this space.

    But, again you have no choice at present. All firewall, network switch, and wireless access point hardware available at present is built from a supply chain that isn't valid for sale to the US government. Normally I could care less, but I feel VERY strongly about supply chain integrity due to past issues, and as such I'd rather not sell anything at all then sell a product that is built in the wrong place by the wrong people.

    This is why i refuse to sell Firewalls with built in wireless. Have it be Sonicwall Untangle Foritnet Cisco etc etc. IMO the best solution is a hardware based firewall then a wireless AP & switch or the bigger picture if larger scale.

    Bump. I'd imagine it's some Arista-branded appliance?

    Looking forward to 'something' being released.

    The other post on faceyspace said something about going live with the new HW release on 4/19. I wonder if that is still true.

    Indeed. From the video on Arista's site it looks like it could be branded the Q8? I'm mostly nervous by how/if they'll change the availability for the prosumer market. It's not like it's particularly easy to get hands on Arista products as a home user. Unless they make this CUE line more available a la Meraki Go/Aruba Instant On.
