U.S. Navy researchers needed embedded computing services routers for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) research work. They have now selected Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) as the sole source basis for this rugged computing and routing package.
The XChange3000 carrier card will host an XPedite5205 Embedded Services Router (ESR) that runs Cisco IOS® Software with Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, providing highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links.
The NIST FIPS 140-2 Overall Level 1 validated and NIAP Common Criteria Certified router offers high performance, four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and a rich Cisco IOS® Software feature set, suitable for the most Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-constrained applications.
Each of the eight system assemblies ordered will contain an XChange3000 3U VPX-REDI XMC/PMC Carrier Card, an XPedite5205 Embedded Services Router (ESR) with Cisco IOS® on an XMC/PMC Mezzanine Module, and an XIt1074 Rear Transition Module (RTM) hosting an XIt2045 PMC I/O Module.
