Extend your network with CG-NAT, NAC, BNG & DPI all within
the same Inventum VSR instance

Multipurpose Performer

Multi-purpose Performer

The Inventum VSR software package brings bridging, switching and routing to standard servers. With throughputs of 10Gbps per Intel® Xeon® CPU core, your servers can now be converted into a high-performance networking system. Add-on software modules enable VPN, CGN, BNG and DPI functions, making the VSR one of the most flexible NFV products out there.


Inventum's very own Linux derived operating system drives the control plane. inventOS™ makes it easy to extend the control plane using software modules that are shared across all Inventum routers. The isolated data plane, uses Intel’s DPDK and Inventum's proprietary code to deliver tens of gigabits of ultrafast performance on standard commercial-off-the-shelf servers (COTS).
