MIDDLETON, Wis., 15 May 2012. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPedite5205 PCI mezzanine card (PMC) embedded computing router module hosting Cisco IOS IP Routing software for mobile ad hoc networking for military and emergency response.

The XPedite5205 embedded services router (ESR) extends the Cisco enterprise infrastructure beyond the reach of traditional fixed-network infrastructure for military embedded systems, oil and gas, mining, smart grid, transportation, and public safety applications.

The XPedite5205 ESR has Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities to provide secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links. When combined with UHF, VHF, Wi-Fi, and other radio links, the combination can create mobile, wireless ad hoc networks, without requiring a connection to central infrastructure, company officials say.

The XPedite5205 can be retrofitted into deployed VME, CompactPCI, VPX, and custom systems with an available or open PMC site.

The module has the Freescale Power Architecture processor; four integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports; runs Cisco IOS Release 15.2GC; support for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CME); Cisco Mobile Ready Net, which allows for mobile ad hoc networking and Radio Aware Routing (RAR) with Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP); on-board hardware acceleration and encryption; integrated threat control using Cisco IOS Firewall, Cisco IOS Zone-based Firewall, Cisco IOS intrusion prevention system (IPS), and Cisco IOS content filtering; identity management using authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) and public key infrastructure; and conduction- or air-cooling.
