The Netgate® 1541 Security Gateway with pfSense® Plus software is our most powerful solution for medium to large enterprise data centers or server rooms. It features a 2.1 GHz, 8-core, 16-thread Intel® Xeon® D-1541 processor with AES-NI, two 10GBase-T ports and two 1 Gbps RJ-45 ports. The CPIC-8955 cryptography accelerator cardwithQAT (QuickAssist Technology) can be added to offload encryption processing for improved VPN throughput performance. Other expansion options include a 2- or 4-port Intel 10 GbE card for additional SFP+ ports or a 4-port Intel 1 GbE card for additional RJ45 ports. With RAID configurations and high availability options, the Netgate 1541 is our most robust solution for high throughput and/or mission critical deployment requirements.

Equipped with an Eight Core Intel Xeon® 2.1 GHz, upgradeable memory up to 32 GB and expandable network interfaces up to (8) ports, the Netgate 1541 achieves routing performance of up to 18.8 Gbps.
