Systems Integrated with Cisco® 5940 Router

Cisco® Solutions Technology Integrator (STI)

X-ES is a Cisco Solutions Technology Integrator (STI). As a Cisco STI, X-ES integrates Cisco technology into our systems. X-ES can integrate the Cisco 5940 Embedded Services Router into X-ES systems.

Cisco 5940 Embedded Services Router

Conduction-cooled Cisco 5940 ESR Air-cooled Cisco 5940 ESR Cisco 5940 ESR Rear Transition Module (RTM)


The Cisco 5940 Embedded Services Router (ESR) is a high-performance air-or conduction-cooled, ruggedized, router designed for use in harsh environments. It offers reliable operation in extreme temperatures and under shock and vibration conditions typical for mobile applications in rugged terrain. With on-board hardware encryption, the Cisco 5940 ESR offloads encryption processing from the router to provide highly secure, yet scalable video, voice, and data services for mobile and embedded outdoor networks. The router offers four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and a rich Cisco IOS feature set, providing investment protection for customers deploying bandwidth-intensive applications in mobile or embedded networks in public safety, transportation, defense, and energy markets.

The Cisco 5940 ESR is a 3U cPCI router card that is available in both air- and conductioncooled models. An optional rear transition module (RTM) is available for applications requiring access to the I/O connectors through standard RJ-45 connectors. X-ES provides the Cisco 5940 ESR integrated into development platforms, as well as deployable systems.

Development Platforms with Integrated Cisco 5940 Router

System Developers can start with a COTS development platform and seamlessly migrate to a deployed system. The CDP-5940 is an integrated development platform. Integrated into the XPand1030 enclosure are the Cisco 5940 ESR, XPedite7332 SBC, and XPort6103 256 GB SSD XMC module. The XPand1300 supports air-cooled module development.
