New Rugged Networking System Provides Higher Performance in Edge Computing



Elma Electronic has extended its NetSys-530x family of rugged, secure networking products with the NetSys-5303, which now adds edge computing capabilities on top of the rich Cisco-enabled routing functions of earlier NetSys systems. The model 5305 also incorporates the latest in Intel Core i7 CPU options, multi-terabyte data storage plus GigE ports expansion.

Technical Highlights:
• Secure data communications at the network edge using Cisco-based routing software
• Rugged, SWaP-optimized system with high computing capacity for mobile, in-the-field applications
• Flexibility with Intel CPU options and choice of multiple I/O configurations
• Modular building block concept ensures efficient upgrades and redesigns

Based on Elma’s building block design concept for modular electronics, the NetSys-5303 is an extendable and configurable system enabling cost-effective upgrades for future expansion or system redefinition.

The new NetSys-5303 offers higher performance computing as well as secure routing connectivity to a wide range of applications in ground, ship and air defense equipment, drilling and mining operations, commercial air and ground transport infrastructure, energy distribution and homeland security and emergency services.

Steve Gudknecht, Systems Product Marketing Manager, Elma Electronic, noted, “Edge computing allows certain computational, storage and networking operations to be offloaded from the central processing infrastructure, improving overall application performance.”

In addition to a choice of Intel Core i7 CPUs, the system features dual routing ports, nine GigE and FE switching ports, a high capacity, multi-terabyte removable storage bay and optional CANbus support.
Its modular design enables a host of I/O options including a full range of video, audio, USB, digital and GPIO connectivity. Highly visible front LEDs indicate power and system status as well as link activity.
