The XG-1541 1U system is a state of the art Security Gateway appliance, featuring the eight core Intel® "Xeon-DE" D-1541 2.1 GHz, with AES-NI and Intel QuickAssist acceleration to support a high level of I/O throughput and optimal performance per watt. This high performance solution is suitable for companies with medium to high throughput requirements to support business, branch and enterprise-class networking use cases.

Combined with TNSR® Business software, the XG-1541 can be configured as a 10 GbE firewall, LAN / WAN router, or VPN solution - capable of fully exploiting its underlying hardware to accommodate the most demanding traffic processing conditions.


Combined with TNSR Business software, the SG-5100 can be configured for various applications including:

  • Edge / Access / WAN Router - 10, 25, 40, 100 Gbps - and beyond - Network Function Virtualization (NFV) router solutions for edge, campus and data centers at a fraction of the cost of FPGA/ASIC-based products

  • Firewall - L2 / L3 / L4 access controls that scale transparently right alongside high-speed routing

  • Site-to-Site IPsec - High-speed encrypted traffic connections without the usual cratering of throughput

  • Large-scale NAT - Software-scalable IPv4/IPv6 address space management eliminates dependency on expensive TCAM-limited appliance products

  • Port Mirror - Fast, easy, low-cost traffic copies for security analysis or other inspection purposes - on-premises or in the cloud

  • Cloud Connectivity - Data center to cloud, intra-cloud and inter-cloud connections to maximize network throughput with minimal hardware


The TNSR RESTCONF API enables the SG-5100 to be managed by IT automation platforms like Ansible®, SaltStack®, Puppet®, or Chef™ - which transcend traditional GUI management approaches - to enable speed, scale, and low-cost deployment / operation.

Features and Technology


  • Routing - Robust IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols and features

  • VPN and Tunneling - Comprehensive suite of secure interconnect options for inter-premises and premises to cloud needs

  • Encryption - Requisite modern and legacy encryption algorithms for secure information transfers

  • Firewall - Router interface access controls and high-scalability network address translation options

  • Network Services - IP address, domain, and network timing technologies that enable core network infrastructure expansion

  • High Availability - Modern enterprise-class availability and reliability of routing paths

  • Management - Legacy and automated interfaces for configuration, fault and security management

  • Access Control - User authentication, role, group, and privilege management


TNSR software is a high-speed software router built on a number of open-source software projects.

  • Vector Packet Processing (VPP)

  • Data Plane Developer Kit (DPDK)

  • Clixon


  • Free Range Routing (FRR) routing protocols

  • strongSwan

  • Kea

  • Net-SNMP

  • NTP

  • Unbound

  • CentOS underlying operating system

In addition to deployment on the XG-1541, TNSR Business can also be purchased in conjunction with a Netgate SG-5100, Netgate XG-1537, as a Bare Metal Image for deployment on 3rd party hardware, or in the cloud on Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure. Free trials are available on AWS, Azure. 

Punch in a higher weight class with our CPIC 8955 Cryptographics Accelerator card. The CPIC 8955 delivers upto 50 Gbps of hardware acceleration to help offload the performance demands of securing and routing Internet traffic.
