Netgate Announces New Appliance: 8200 with TNSR Software

December 15, 2022 (AUSTIN, TX) -- Netgate®  is excited to announce its newest high-performance security router – the Netgate 8200 Secure Router with TNSR® software – is now available for pre-order. The Netgate 8200 supports high-speed throughput with management flexibility for service providers, virtual or branch offices, edge-to-cloud applications, and all businesses that need multi-gigabit throughput.

The Netgate 8200 with TNSR software delivers 18.6 Gbps L3 routing, 18.6 Gbps ACL filtering, and 15.34 Gbps AES-GCM IPsec VPN throughput – using iPerf3 traffic as a benchmark.

It is equipped with an 8-Core Intel® Atom® C3758R CPU with integrated QuickAssist & AES-NI, 16 GB of memory, and 8 independent, flexible WAN/LAN ports – 1 GbE (2), 2.5 GbE (4), and 10 GbE (2) – making it an ideal choice for businesses that need secure, fast routing.

Other highlights include:

  • Quiet and Cool: an actively controlled cooling fan integrated into the chassis baseplate which allows the unit to remain uncharacteristically quiet for such a powerful 1U system.
  • Energy Efficient: the Netgate 8200 has a low power draw, which makes it more energy efficient than other 1U rack-mounted systems.
  • Advanced Management: TNSR software configuration through both CLI and RESTCONF API enables the Netgate 8200 to be managed by IT automation platforms like Ansible®, SaltStack®, Puppet®, or Chef™ - which go beyond traditional GUI management techniques to enable both speed and multi-instance management orchestration at scale, along with low-cost deployment and automated operation.
