Get network management & infrastructure that adjust to you
No matter what challenges you’re facing at your data center and branch locations, the Nodegrid Services Router (NSR) gives you complete control of your network.
It’s the only modular solution that adjusts to your business’ needs, so your network can become a powerful value creator.
- Free your resources with the industry’s most in-depth out-of-band management
- Provide secure & flexible network access via Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
- Get uncompromising control on a granular scale with SD-Branch capabilities
Why Nodegrid Services Router?
The Nodegrid Services Router makes it easy to optimize your stack. Using virtualized network functions (VNFs), the NSR goes beyond the network switch to bring you a virtual environment that scales to your needs. Use VNFs alongside the NSR’s modular expansion cards for faster deployments, hardened security, & added savings.
- Replace up to six devices with a single NSR
- Virtualize more systems to drastically downsize your stack
- Set up zero touch provisioning for plug-n-play deployments
- Get total peace of mind with enterprise-grade security
- Protect your data using encrypted SSL and IPSec technologies
- Isolate & eliminate threats thanks to control/data plane separation
Save Across the Board
- Cut CAPEX with VNFs, 3rd-party app hosting, & add-on modules
- Prevent outages using alerts & automation that self-heal issues
- Save on OPEX thanks to remote out-of-band & cellular backup
What makes NSR the leading services router?
The NSR is the most powerful solution thanks to its multi-core, Intel-based processor. Where competing devices limit you to few VNFs, the NSR handles every network function without breaking a sweat.
Freedom to scale
With up to nine field-upgradable expansion modules, the NSR is the only solution to offer true freedom to scale. You no longer need to compromise, because the NSR gives you every capability you need.
You don’t have to put up with cumbersome stacks any longer. The NSR tightens up networking using a single device for virtualization, third-party app hosting, Docker containers, & automation.
Integration with Nodegrid Manager gives you unified control, regardless of which vendor solutions you use. Simply connect the NSR for in-depth, 360-degree management – all on one interface.
Lay the foundation for open networking that adapts to you
Whether you need to run custom security applications at your largest data center, or SD-Branch capabilities for a faraway office, the Nodegrid Services Router is your open platform solution. It’s the only modular services router that lets you bolt on more functionality and address your business’ changing needs.
