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 an NSPC to have services processing applied to it. Traffic is intelligently distributed and an NSPC 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 an NSPC is not present, you must install a filler cover to shield the empty slots 1 and 3 and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.
  • You can either use an NSPC or combination of SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Network Processing Card (NPC) and Services Processing Cards (SPC), with a double wide tray holder on the SRX1400 Services Gateway for the device to operate properly. For more details, see the SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Cards Supported on SRX1400 Services Gateway.
  • The ONLINE button on NSPC does not perform any function and currently it is not supported.
