I am interested to hear about the uses and practical applications of
the Cisco PIX 501, 506, 515, and 525. Please let me know the
application and why that specific firewall would be chosen. Thanks
for your help.

The pix blade is no pix 500 series.

I have to admit, that I ignored the EOL products.

So basically you are saying the number of users it what
differientiates the models. I was just wandering if there were
reasons other than size of office that would require higher models.

connections per second
throughput
max number of interfaces
interface type selection

its not just about the number of users - in fact in many scenarios, the
number of users is much less relevant than the connections per second
capacity (ie. application hosting)
