The appliance comes with a specified number of Mobile Access User Licenses (either 100 or 200, depending on model).
Refer to the datasheet for details: https://www.checkpoint.com/downloads/products/1500-security-gateway-datasheet.pdf
You can add an additional 50 users at an extra cost.
That's about as many users as you can realistically support on those appliances.

If users are going to use VDI or RDP or something like that to access resources in DC then it can handle quite a lot (depending on Internet bandwidth).

Also, it depends on your policy of course but our users are permitted to use Internet on their home PCs and only use Remote Access to work with company systems which offloaded traffic from appliance quite a lot actually.

Bottom line is, it really depends on how are users going to work and your current appliance configuration (enabled blades, access policy, etc).

Dear Admin thanks for the response. No of mobile user is mention in the data sheet. But my concern is about internal user. because their are multiple SMB appliances but m not able to differentiate all according to no of users.

I'd say the "Mobile Access" number also applies to the number of internal users as well, with the real number depending on how much throughput the users need and what Software Blades are enabled.

Hi Admin,
Is there any document so we can decide which appliance is best suited for user according to bandwidth and no. of blades. Thanking you in advance.

The datasheet tells you what the different performance statistics are for the different models and protection profiles (Threat Prevention, Next Generation Firewall, IPS + FW, or FW only).
The actual Software Blades for each one is listed on the datasheet.
Based on how much bandwidth you expect an average user to use and the protection profile you want, you can size accordingly.
In general, you're looking at approximately 200 users for a 1590, less for the other appliances.

For a more detailed conversation, I recommend engaging with a local partner or your local Check Point office.
