SRX1400 Services Gateway Network and Services Processing Card

The Network and Services Processing Card (NSPC) is a double-wide common form-factor module (CFM) card that provides the processing power to run integrated services such as firewall, IPSecurity (IPsec), and intrusion detection and prevention (IDP). All traffic traversing the services gateway is passed to the NSPC to have services processing applied to it. Traffic is intelligently distributed for service processing, including session setup based on policies, fast packet processing for packets that match a session, encryption and decryption, and Internet Key Exchange (IKE) negotiation.

  • If the NSPC is not present, you must install a filler cover to shield the empty slots 1 and 3 and to keep contaminants out of the chassis and allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device. The services gateway is delivered with a filler cover already installed over these slots.
  • You can install either an NSPC, or a combination of SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Network Processing Card (NPC) and Services Processing Card (SPC), on the SRX1400 Services Gateway. You must use a double-wide tray with the combination of NPC and SPC. For more details, see the SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Cards Supported on SRX1400 Services Gateway.
  • The ONLINE button on the NSPC does not perform any function and is currently not supported.
