Netgate Releases TNSR High Performance Router Version 22.06

June 23, 2022 (AUSTIN, TX) Netgate® today announced availability of its latest version of TNSR® software, Release 22.06. TNSR is a high speed vRouter solution capable of addressing the high-performance edge routing, cloud connectivity, and robust IPsec site-to-site VPN needs of businesses and service providers. The product integrates Vector Packet Processing (VPP), Free Range Routing (FRR) - and other open-source projects - with Netgate control and management planes into a production-ready, secure networking solution. This integration saves organizations from the expertise, time and expense required to raise open-source project software into high-speed production-ready commercial solutions.

The 22.06 release adds IPFIX flow reporting, initial support for WireGuard VPN tunnels, improved route display, the ability to selectively enable and disable IPsec tunnels, along with numerous bug fixes and other improvements.

Because of the TNSR architecture and fast vector processing capabilities in VPP, the WireGuard implementation in TNSR is much faster than the standard in kernel Ubuntu / Linux WireGuard implementations.

“With progress on highly requested features like standardized flow reporting, release 22.06 is another important step forward for our customers as they expand their high-speed routed networks.” said Jamie Thompson, Netgate CEO. We look forward to working with our customers to explore new implementations utilizing WireGuard VPN capabilities between the network edge, data centers and the cloud.“

Netgate is also pleased to report the transition to Ubuntu Server Release 20.04.4 Long Term Support (LTS) as the base operating system for TNSR has been extremely successful. Building on this progress, upgrades from TNSR software Release 22.02 to 22.06 are supported for current customers, and new customers can install TNSR 22.06 on this Ubuntu LTS version directly.

TNSR software is made available via a bare metal image for non-Netgate appliances and virtual machines, software instances on Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud service provider marketplaces, and factory installed on Netgate 1537 and 1541 appliances.
