Watchguards vs Junipers firewalls

Hi all - Has anyone out there had experience of running these firewalls near
1Gig speeds (mainly middle to large packets, not voice) between zones/ports,
if possible

 

Specifically we are looking at the Watchguard XTM535 and the Juniper
SRX550/600's.

 

I am interested in experiences good and bad on either platforms and usage of
IDP/Weblocker etc on them.

 

We currently use SRX240 and Watchguard 1250e but have a need to increase the
throughput to nearly 1Gig.

 

Other criteria would be to be to do OSPF/BGP in high availability mode

 

Many thanks

 

Simon
