The need for router speeds will only increase.
But fixed-configuration, proprietary, hardware-centric edge networking solutions are a thing of the past.
The modern world will be connected with high-performance network function virtualized (NFV) software routers at the edge and in the core.
Edge routers which forward packets to an external network such as the Internet are pervasive - deployed at every premises data center, corporate headquarters location, and branch office. But, as WAN connection speeds need to increase, existing routers are either unable to achieve higher speeds at all, or too expensive to upgrade. New routers from legacy brand vendors are also loaded with complex software, hardware, and service charges.
TNSR® software provides 5, 10, 25, 40 Gbps or more routing via "ASIC-speed" software on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.
High throughput. Feature rich. Easily scalable. Low cost.
Key router capabilities include:
Core routers provide a routing backbone for transit traffic to flow from one end of a network to another. Different from edge routers, they are:
Just as with edge routers, the buyer challenge is finding a solution with the best price-performance.
TNSR software delivers essential core router requirements:
TNSR software can be deployed on a Netgate appliance, third-party appliance, virtual machine, or cloud compute instance - enabling WAN edge or core router needs to be commissioned effectively anywhere. Per instance bandwidth needs are easy to rightsize - both initially and as routing needs increase. High availability can be provisioned in dual- or multi-node fashion using VRRP.
