ASA 5505 vs 5510

    I am trying to decide between the 5505 and 5510 Security Plus Bundle.
    We currently have a 515e that this would replace. Our current config
    includes a 3MBps symmetrical internet pipe, which has served us well
    to date. Besides web access and email, we have a web based application
    that has higher use during a three month period each year. This
    application is SSL encrypted and consists of a series of 5-10 clicks
    on pages weighing 15-40K each. There are 40,000 invitations to access
    the application over this three month period but useage can sometimes
    peak when a batch of 700 invitations are sent over a one hour period.
    The web server (in the DMZ)needs to communicate with the DB server in
    the internal network, the place where the greatest traffic is
    happening.

    We have studied the specs and know that the 515e can handle this
    traffic acceptably... my question is.... if we select a 5510 over the
    5505, will there be a noticeable improvement on responsiveness given
    the specs above or are the specs such as the ability to handle 300Mbps
    max through the firewall over the 150Mbps of the 5505 simply
    irrelevant since the internet feed is only 3Mbps and the port on the
    back of either firewall is only 100Mbps.

    Thanks!
