The NP6Lite works the same way as the NP6. Being a lighter version, the NP6Lite has a lower capacity than the NP6. The NP6Lite max throughput is 10 Gbps using 2x QSGMII and 2x Reduced gigabit media-independent interface (RGMII) interfaces.
Also, the NP6Lite does not offload the following types of sessions:
- Syn proxy
- DNS session helper
The NP6Lite is a component of the Fortinet SOC3. The SOC3 includes a CPU, the NP6Lite network processor, and a CP9Lite content processor that supports most CP9 functionality but with a lower capacity.
