TEMPE, Ariz., 1 May 2012. The CPCI7203 rugged 3U CompactPCI embedded computing board from Emerson Network Power in Tempe, Ariz., has received Cisco verification for secure unified communications in federal agencies and military embedded systems. The embedded computing board finished interoperability verification testing for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager for government agencies and network-centric defense applications, company officials say.
Cisco validation “will enable quicker and easier transition from legacy deployed PBX systems and simplify maintenance to help reduce total cost of ownership,” says Paul Virgo, marketing director for the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. “In today’s security-conscious environment, the ability to collaborate with encrypted communications is more important than ever.”
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.6.1 is completing certification at the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), which allows it to operate on U.S. Department of Defense communications networks. It enables defense agencies to manage their communications quickly and conveniently in order to focus on mission-critical tasks.
The Emerson Network Power 3U CPCI7203 single-board computer uses the Intel Core i7 integrated dual-core processor, and is suitable for harsh environments. On-board memory includes as much as eight gigabytes of soldered ECC DDR3 memory and the air-cooled variants also support 256 kilobytes of non-volatile memory and 4 gigabytes of MicroSD flash. Conduction-cooled variants offer a high density 1.8-inch solid-state drive for data storage.
