Netgate Introduces Netgate 6100 Secure Router with TNSR

August 25, 2022 (AUSTIN, TX) -- Netgate®, the leading provider of open source-driven secure networking solutions, today announced the availability of the Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR®, the latest addition to the company’s highly popular secure networking appliance family. The product is an ideal edge router / 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 rack option.

TNSR software is a high-performance software router that enables businesses and service providers to address today’s demanding edge and cloud networking needs. 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. With TNSR, the Netgate 6100 Max transforms into a high-performance, ready-to-use router that supports fast throughput at an affordable price.

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.

With TNSR software, testing shows delivery of 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 - compelling figures for a product in this class, especially fanless and at a reasonable price point.

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.

“We're confident that the level of performance, throughput, connectivity, and deployment flexibility provided by the Netgate 6100 Max with TNSR software will benefit anyone in need of 10 Gbps performance under heavy traffic loads and who wants to maximize their IT return on investment." said Jamie Thompson, Netgate CEO.
