Introducing the Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR

Introducing the Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR

We’re excited to announce that the Netgate® 6100 Max is now available with TNSR® software. TNSR software is a high-performance software router that enables businesses and service providers to address today’s demanding edge and cloud networking needs. With TNSR software, the Netgate 6100 Max transforms into a super-scale, ready-to-use router that supports high-speed throughput without the super-scale price. We anticipate that this will catch the attention of anyone with a need for 10 Gbps or better performance under heavy traffic loads and who wants to maximize their IT return on investment.



What TNSR Can Do For You

High-Performance Routing and High-Throughput Site-to-Site IPsec

TNSR software offers true 10+ Gbps or more routing, as well as fast and efficient site-to-site IPsec, especially when compared to traditional solutions underpinned by kernel-based, single packet-at-a-time processing approaches.

Preinstalled with the latest TNSR software, our testing shows the Netgate 6100 Max delivering 18.6 Gbps L3 routing, 18.6 Gbps ACL filtering, and 7.2 Gbps AES-GCM IPsec VPN throughput - using iPerf3 traffic as a benchmark*. These are excellent figures for a product in this class, especially fanless and at such a reasonable price point.


High-Speed Cloud Connectivity

In addition to being available on the Netgate 6100, 1537, and 1541, TNSR is also available on AWS and Azure as a vRouter solution. In the cloud, TNSR is ideal for connecting to Cloud Service Provider on-ramps or between Virtual Private Clouds - offering speed, scalability, and affordability.

More About the Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR

The Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR software is an ideal edge gateway solution for organizations in need of versatile WAN connectivity (1 to 10 Gbps WAN connections - across 4 RJ45, SFP, and SFP+ ports) and high-performance LAN connectivity (4 discrete, unswitched 2.5 Gbps LAN ports), all in a fanless, desktop package or the new pre-assembled 1U option. This new option provides the Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR software mounted on the Netgate rack-mount for 6100 appliances.

At its core, the Netgate 6100 Max has a 2.2 GHz Quad Core Intel C3558 CPU with integrated QuickAssist Technology, SHA and AES-NI instructions, plus 8 GB of DDR4 memory - leading to a noticeably more performant user experience.

Further, the product’s physical packaging and environmentals make for even more versatility. The Netgate 6100 Max comes in a compact form factor, has a quite low power draw, and operates silently at up to 40° C - making it suitable for desktop, wall-mounted, or rack-mounted placement. It also includes a dual USB / RJ45 serial port console and locking power connector.

Businesses, educational institutions, government agencies and all service providers will be hard pressed to find another product on the market in this price range with this level of performance, throughput, connectivity, and deployment flexibility.
