SRX1400 Services Gateway NSPC

 

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, IP Security (IPsec), and intrusion detection and prevention (IDP). The NSPC contains a Services Processing Unit (SPU) and a Network Processing Unit (NPU). All traffic traversing the services gateway is passed to the NSPC to have services processing applied to it. Traffic is intelligently distributed for services 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.

Note
  • 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.

  • The services gateway requires at least one SPU and one NPU in the slots labeled 1 and 3 in order to operate. You can install an NSPC, which contains an NPU and an SPU, or you can install a combination of SRX3000 Series Services Gateway NPC and SPC, on the SRX1400 Services Gateway. You must use a double-wide tray with the combination of NPC and SPC.

  • The ONLINE button on the NSPC does not perform any function and is currently not supported.

  • You can use a single-wide Network Processing Card (NPC) and a single-wide Services Processing Card (SPC) as an alternative to the NSPC.
