The Netgate® SG-5100 security gateway appliance with TNSR® Business software is a robust and future-proof device that covers a broad spectrum of networking needs. This high-performance solution is suitable for home, small business, branch, and enterprise-class applications.

With a quad core Intel® Atom™ C3558 2.2 GHz CPU with AES-NI, (6) independent 1 GbE ports, and 4 GB of upgradable DDR4 RAM, the SG-5100 tackles demanding firewall/router/VPN performance needs with memory and storage upgradeability, and robust encryption handling.

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.
