Netgate 8300 with TNSR Software


Elevate your network infrastructure with the Netgate® 8300 Secure Router featuring TNSR® software. Netgate’s first 100Gbps+ Secure Router is a powerhouse designed for service providers, virtual/remote offices, and businesses embracing edge-to-cloud applications, this high-performance, secure router redefines networking with unmatched flexibility, expandability, and scalability. Unleash unparalleled performance with its 2.0 GHz, 8-core, 16-thread Intel® Xeon® D-1733NT processor equipped with the Intel AVX-512 instruction set, delivering exceptional speed and security. AVX-512 exponentially boosts routing, VPN, and ACL filtering performance by processing data more efficiently, significantly enhancing network performance with faster data processing, reduced latency, and improved responsiveness.
Experience next-level connectivity with quad 10G SFP+ ports, quad 1G SFP ports, and triple 2.5G RJ-45 ports, boasting a remarkable 500% increase in throughput and a 175% boost in port density over the 1541. As Netgate's most expandable chassis, it can support 25G and 100G ports via PCIe cards. The Netgate 8300 helps future-proof your network infrastructure and scale as your business grows. 
Take your network capabilities to the next level and unleash the full potential of your business with Netgate's most robust secure router.

This system combines the power of TNSR software with an Intel Xeon D-1733NT 8-Core CPU with integrated Intel AVX512 and QAT, and 16 GB of memory to deliver over 110 Gbps of L3 routing across 11 Independent 1G, 2.5G, and 10G Flexible WAN/LAN ports. Additional PCIe slots bring extra flexibility to expand, supporting up to 25G or 100G with our recommended Intel E810-based add-in cards.

IT automation platforms like Ansible®, SaltStack®, Puppet®, or Chef® can manage the TNSR software configuration on the Netgate 8300 through both CLI and RESTCONF API. These methods go beyond traditional GUI management techniques to enable speed and multi-instance management orchestration at scale, along with low-cost deployment and automated operation.

To provide reliable and consistent performance, the 8300 has an actively controlled cooling fan integrated into the chassis baseplate, which allows the unit to remain uncharacteristically quiet for such a powerful 1U system.
