TNSR User Story: Region 5 ESC Lights Up TNSR

Region 5 logo

While Netgate provides secure networking solutions to every vertical on literally every continent on planet Earth, education is always a special sector for us - especially when it plays a pivotal role in the rebuilding of a regional economy. We’re honored to have Region 5 ESC as a TNSR customer, and wish all the best as they help improve life in the southeast Texas coastal region.

TNSR Application Spotlight: Cloud Connectivity


Screen Shot 2020-03-02 at 1.27.19 PM


Many organizations are migrating some or all of their business applications to public clouds (AWS, Azure, etc.) - for access flexibility, scale, and cost reasons - as fast as possible. But users are still at headquarters, branch offices or at home. Hair-pinning through the corporate data center for security purposes is costly for the organization and sluggish for the end-user experience.

TNSR software provides cost effective speed, security, and scalability for connecting to the cloud, within the cloud, or across clouds.


TNSR Performance

performance Performance data is always a key criteria for selection of network solutions. But performance data is easily misconstrued, making vendor comparisons challenging, if not impossible. While Netgate is not in a position to vet other vendors' claims, we try to be 100% transparent with our performance test results. Packet traffic conditions, hardware vintage, software release, and test methodology can independently affect test results.

In the world of networking, correct implementation and speed are everything. TNSR software delivers. Definitively. No Trickery.

USNS Mercy Steps Up Its Network for COVID-19 Support


The USNS Mercy - a 65,000 ton converted oil tanker which hosts 1000 hospital beds (including 80 intensive care beds) - is currently docked in the Port of Los Angeles to help the Southern California region cope with COVID-19.

With any hospital, secure networking communications are essential. The Mercy’s network must accommodate not only official naval vessel communications, but also civilian medical staff and patient communications. As with numerous US government agencies, the US Navy is a pfSense software user, and so is the USNS Mercy.
