TNSR® software is packet processing platform that delivers superior secure networking solution performance, manageability, and services flexibility. TNSR software can scale packet processing from 1 to 10 to 100 Gbps and beyond on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware - enabling routing, firewall, VPN and other secure networking applications to be delivered for a fraction of the cost of legacy brands. TNSR software features a RESTCONF API - enabling multiple instances to be orchestration managed - as well as a CLI for single instance management.
