Review The Datasheet
Extend IPv4 connectivity and migrate seamlessly to IPv6
The NFWare Virtual Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT) is a high-performance software-based solution for transparent address and protocol translation. It allows service providers to extend their IPv4 networks quickly and enables a smooth transition to IPv6.
NFWare CGNAT works as a Virtual Machine on top of standard x86 server and a hypervisor, thus providing flexibility and cost-efficiency for small and large deployments.
Carrier Grade NAT (CGN or CGNAT), also known as Large Scale NAT (LSN) is a way of solving the problem of the limited supply of IP addresses available in IPv4's 32-bit address space. It uses translator devices embedded in the operator's network to change private network addresses into public IPv4 addresses. This enables the sharing of small pools of public addresses among multiple end sites, thus greatly expanding the capacity of the existing network.
Carrier Grade NAT

Vallecas Telecom, Spain
"Deployment of NFWare Virtual CGN allows us to decrease the CAPEX and improve the flexibility of the network due to the virtual nature of the solution"
__ Technical Director at Vallecas Telecom
"NFWare´s CGNAT test demonstrates the feasibility of data plane intensive virtual network functions and constitutes a message for the industry that foster a healthier ecosystem of providers."
__ Head of Network Virtualization Technology & Strategy at Telefónica Global CTO unit
FSM Telecom, Micronesia
"NFWare virtual CGNAT allows us to expand our ADSL customer base without the need for additional IPv4 address space from APNIC, and the reallocation/repurposing of existing IPv4 address space"
