Netgate TNSR High-Performance Edge Routing Features
High-performance routers will be needed at the network edge, in network cores, from premise-to-cloud direct connect infrastructure (where available) and even between public or private Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs).
Bridging connects two networks so that they act as if they are one network. This is commonly used to connect interfaces across different types of links, e.g., Ethernet to VXLAN, or to enable filtering between two segments of the same network.
Static routing relies upon a manually-configured routing entry rather than information from a dynamic routing protocol. Static routing and dynamic routing are not mutually exclusive.
Dynamic routing enables routers to select paths based upon real-time logical network layout changes. Popular dynamic routing protocols include Border Gateway protocol (BGP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), and Routing Information Protocol (RIP).
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the routing protocol used by the global internet, finds the best route path by weighing the latest network conditions based on reachability and routing information.
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is an interior gateway protocol that uses a link state routing algorithm to find the best path between a source and destination router. TNSR supports both OSPF v2 (OSPF) and OSPF v3 (OSPF6).
Equal-cost multi-path (ECMP) is a dynamic routing technique where packet forwarding to a single destination can occur over multiple best paths with equal routing priority.
Static Address Resolution Protocol (Static ARP) can be used to manually map an IPv4 network address to a MAC address that will not be removed after a period of non-use.
Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) is a protocol that can detect link failures within milliseconds, or even microseconds.
Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) is a feature which uses isolated L3 domains with alternate routing tables for specific interfaces and dynamic routing purposes.
With this configuration, two units act as an “active/passive” cluster with the primary node working as the master unit and the secondary node in a backup role, taking over as needed if the primary node fails.
TNSR edge router provides stellar packet per second and gigabit per second performance for the most demanding secure networking applications.
What is TNSR High-Performance Edge and Core Routing ?
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. TNSR software provides 5, 10, 40, even 100 Gbps, or more routing via "ASIC-speed" software on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.
