Cisco-certified Rugged Routers Provide Secure Network Performance in Mission-critical Environments

Elma’s expanded line provides flexible, cost-effective systems

Elma Electronic Inc. has expanded its line of Cisco routing solutions to include a series of fanless, compact systems that reliably deliver fast, secure network performance in mission-critical applications.

As an approved Cisco Solutions Technology Integrator (STI) partner, Elma combines its expertise in system integration, networking technology and packaging design across a wide range of environments with the proven solutions of Cisco mobile routing.

One of the systems offers two routing ports and three switching ports in a SWaP-optimized, rugged chassis used in harsh environments such as defense, mining, emergency services and disaster recovery operations.

For enhanced connectivity options, another system incorporates the same rugged design, while adding up to 25 additional ports, including two Gigabit Ethernet ports. The functional and mechanical construction is modular, enabling custom configurations such as CPU options for complete mission systems as well as additional application specific I/O options and high capacity data storage.

Using the proven Cisco Enterprise IOS and Mobile Ready Net capabilities, the new router family delivers highly secure data, voice and video communications to stationary and mobile nodes across wired and wireless links at the network edge. Cisco certified routing protocols enable nodes to quickly adapt to changing network topologies and establish ad hoc networks as nodes move in and out of a fixed network infrastructure.

Radio aware routing and dynamic link control protocols ensure reliable, efficient routing for critical data delivery in real-time, time-sensitive applications. While the use of the familiar Cisco IOS software eases training expenses, Elma’s experience in small form factor system design and embedded computing helps to keep integration costs low while delivering rugged, high performance computing platforms.

Technical Specifications:

  • Cisco-certified routing engine
  • SWaP-optimized for space constrained environments
  • Reliable, secure data transmission for critical applications
  • Operating temperature: -40°C to +71°C (to +85°C for storage)
  • Shock to 40 Gs; 11 ms
  • Vibration from 10 Hz to 2,000 Hz
  • Passive cooling (no fans)

Pricing is dependent upon configuration. Delivery is 10 to 12 weeks ARO.
