NETGATE 6100 BASE PFSENSE SECURITY GATEWAY
The Netgate® 6100 with pfSense® Plus software is one of the most versatile security gateways in its class. It combines the power of an Intel C3558 Quad Core CPU with integrated (QAT) QuickAssist Technology & AES-NI and 8 GB of memory for a snappy user experience, delivering over 18 Gbps of L3 routing across 8 independent 1 GbE, 2.5 GbE, and 10 GbE Flexible WAN/LAN ports. The 6100 is capable of performing high-throughput firewall, routing, and VPN applications. Despite its powerful performance the 6100 operates in complete silence with a passive cooling system and is ideal for pro-home, small/medium businesses, or edge deployments.
The Netgate 6100 is an ideal edge gateway solution for any organization in need of versatile network connectivity with 1 to 10 Gbps flexible WAN/LAN connections and 8 GB of DDR4 memory to deliver exceptional throughput performance.

Netgate 6100 performance tests conducted with pfSense Plus software version 22.01
The Netgate 6100 will also be compatible with TNSR software. TNSR is a high-performance software router capable of producing considerable performance increases far beyond the limits of pfSense Plus software.
CPU: Quad-Core 2.2 GHz Intel Atom CPU, with integrated AES-NI and QAT (QuickAssist Technology) significantly improves encrypted throughput and increases RAM performance by up to 50%.
Network Ports: (2) 10 GbE SFP Ports, (2) 1 GbE Combo Ports (RJ45/SFP), and (4) discrete, unswitched 2.5 Gbps Ports allow for versatile WAN connectivity.
Storage: 16 GB eMMC
Memory: 8 GB DDR4 RAM, DDR4 memory allows more stable, higher transfer rates for memory-intensive applications (e.g. IDS/IPS).
Cooling: The passive cooling system and low power draw of the Netgate 6100 provides efficient thermal management and silent operation expected from smaller devices despite its significantly higher performance.
pfSense Plus software provides the performance, flexibility, reliability and business assurance expected from leading secure networking applications:
- Up to 10 Gbps performance
- Flexible 3rd-party application options
- Traditional management mechanisms
- Proven reliability
- Complete business assurance support
All at a fraction of the cost of proprietary alternatives, pfSense Plus software is the perfect answer. Popular pfSense Plus use cases include load balancing, traffic shaping, captive portal, UTM device, DNS/DHCP Server, IDS/IPS, transparency caching proxy, web content filtering, failover WAN, and much more.
