The Cisco® 5940 Embedded Services Router (ESR) is optimized for mobile and embedded networks that require IP routing and services. The CompactPCI form factor complemented by Cisco IOS® Software and Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, provide highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links.
The Cisco® 5940 ESR is a high-performance, ruggedized router designed for use in harsh environments and offering reliable operation in extreme temperatures and under shock and vibration conditions typical for mobile applications in rugged terrain. With onboard 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 high performance, four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and a rich Cisco IOS® Software 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 CompactPCI (cPCI) router card that is available in both conduction- and air-cooled 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 and deployable systems.
