X-ES Integrates Cisco® Networking Technology to Better Serve Military, Industrial, and Other Markets

Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) announces that they have entered into a Cisco® Solution Technology Integrator (STI) agreement, allowing them to integrate Cisco networking technologies into X-ES embedded computing solutions for military, communications, industrial, and commercial markets. The rugged Cisco 5940 Series Embedded Services Router is now available in both development platforms and deployable X-ES embedded systems for air- and conduction-cooled 3U CompactPCI cards.

Cisco 5940 Series Embedded Services Router, with Cisco IOS® software and Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, provides highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links.

X-ES supplies two unique development chassis incorporating the Cisco 5940:

  • The XPand1200 is a lab-based conduction-cooled chassis, hosting Intel® Core™ i7 processor boards such as the XPedite7332, or NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ P4080 processor boards such as the XPedite5470. Additionally, third-party I/O XMC or PMC modules can be supported with the XChange1200 3U cPCI carrier with front panel or P16/P14 I/O.
  • The XPand1300 is also lab-based, but air-cooled, and hosts the same CPU or I/O cards for quick and easy development purposes.

When lab development is completed, the air-cooled or conduction-cooled payload modules can be easily migrated to deployable systems. Conduction-cooled payloads are integrated into the MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-461E certified, conduction-cooled, ½-ATR XPand3200 Series, XPand4200 Series, or XPand5200 Series chassis for deployment into Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) constrained applications. “We are excited about becoming a Cisco STI partner and having the ability to integrate embedded routers from the worldwide leader in networking into X-ES systems”, states Bret Farnum, VP of Sales and Marketing at X-ES.

“We are already working with multiple joint customers on opportunities to integrate the Cisco 5940 router into systems. Having the STI agreement in place will allow X-ES to provide better support to our customers.”
