XPand6102 Small Form Factor (SFF) Rugged System

The XPand6102 is a Small Form Factor (SFF) system that features an XPedite5205, which runs Cisco IOS® Software with Cisco® Mobile Ready Net capabilities, and an XPedite7450 for general processing. The combination of XPedite5205 and XPedite7450 provides a high-performance router with plenty of computing power for any application. The XPand6102 can be utilized as a development platform or a deployed system.

The XPedite5205 uses the same Cisco IOS® that IT staffs in the military, energy, public safety, and other industries are already trained on, enabling these organizations to expand their network to personnel, equipment, facilities, and vehicles at the edge of the network – warfighters on the battlefield, mines and drilling platforms, natural disaster mobile command centers – without any additional training. The XPand6102 can be connected to UHF, VHF, Wi-Fi, and other IP-based radio platforms to create the network nodes used to form mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). With the ability to operate without a connection to central infrastructure, MANETs offer many advantages for military, public safety, and emergency response users. The XPedite5205 extends the Cisco® enterprise infrastructure beyond the reach of traditional fixed-network infrastructure for oil and gas, mining, smart grid, heavy construction, transportation, homeland security, and public safety applications.

The router offers high performance, four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and a rich Cisco IOS® Software feature set for the most Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-constrained applications. To meet the needs of demanding mobile and embedded networking applications, the XPand6102 provides hardware encryption, radio aware routing (RAR) with support for the latest Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP), support for IPv6, integrated threat control with integrated Cisco IOS® firewalls and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Quality of Service (QoS).

The XPedite5205 is packaged in a natural-convection-cooled horizontal enclosure with four commercial RJ-45 connectors. For rugged applications, the system can be packaged in an XPand6000 Series enclosure with D38999 circular connectors.
