    No, NS is not required.

    They are high end devices designed for many more users than you have in high throughput, high availability environments.

    Access Gateway will more than suffice for your current needs.

    Although, given you use the VPX that leads one to assume you have a virtualisation platform, so you may want to consider building your XA server as virtual and have two of them for resilience.

    But again. What you have should be fine so long as the server is spec'd to support the app(s) your users will run.
