The New Netgate 4100 is Ready for Pre-Order!

The New Netgate 4100 is Ready for Pre-Order!

It's been another journey navigating the pandemic and continued supply chain upheaval, but we've powered through! Today, we are excited to announce our newest secure networking appliance, the Netgate 4100. We expect it will be a very popular edge gateway solution for professional home, small / medium business, and branch office locations who need two 1 Gbps WAN ports, and as many as four high-throughput 2.5 Gbps LAN ports. With a fanless design, the product is suitable for desktop, wall mount, or rack mount deployments - with pricing starting at $599 USD. Factory-provisioned with pfSense® Plus software makes it ideal for a broad range of edge firewall, VPN, and router use cases.

Here are the highlights:

  • 1.8 GHz Dual Core Intel® Atom® CPU with integrated QuickAssist Technology and AES-NI

  • 4GB DDR4 RAM

  • 16GB of eMMC flash storage (Base configuration @ $599 USD) or 128GB SSD (Max configuration @ $699 USD)

  • Two (2) 1Gbps Combo ports

  • Four (4) discrete (unswitched) x 2.5 Gbps RJ45 ports

  • Fanless, quiet operation

  • Desktop, wall or rack mount

iPerf3 performance testing with pfSense Plus Release 22.01 reveals the product achieves 8.15 Gbps L3 routing, 4.09 Gbps firewall performance, 3.42 Gbps NAT handling, or 0.96 Gbps of AES-GCM IPsec VPN throughput - excellent for a versatile deployment, sub-$600 USD solution.

The dual combo WAN ports allows users to run a dual-WAN configuration, e.g., one with a fiber connection and a second with a copper connection.

The Netgate 4100 completes our midrange product line update. We've worked especially hard to integrate the latest technologies for improved performance and flexible connectivity - all while navigating global supply chain and transit challenges. The Netgate 4100 provides a price-performance optimized solution for customers seeking greater WAN and LAN port flexibility and performance throughput than the Netgate 2100, but at a lower price point than its bigger brother, the Netgate 6100. Check out our nine-minute product overview video for more details.

We're taking pre-orders starting today, and expect to begin volume shipping in just a few weeks.
