XChange6300

Embedded Services Router (ESR) with Cisco IOS-XE® on an XMC/PMC Module

The XChange6300 XMC/PMC-based Embedded Services Router (ESR) router runs Cisco IOS-XE® 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.

When combined with UHF, VHF, Wi-Fi, and other radio platforms, the combination can create mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), without requiring a connection to central infrastructure for military and emergency response. It 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.

XChange6300 Embedded Services Router

The XChange6300 XMC/PMC-based Embedded Services Router (ESR) router runs Cisco IOS-XE® 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. When combined with UHF, VHF, Wi-Fi, and other radio platforms, the combination can create mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), without requiring a connection to central infrastructure for military and emergency response. It 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 two combo ports that can independently support either 10/100/1000BASE-T or 1000BASE-X Ethernet ports, as well as one fixed 1000BASE-X or 2500BASE-X Ethernet port directly from the CPU. The XChange6300 also offers a rich Cisco IOS-XE® Software feature set, suitable for the most Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-constrained applications. To meet the needs of demanding mobile and embedded networking applications, the XChange6300 ESR provides onboard hardware encryption to off-load encryption processing, radio aware routing (RAR) with support for the latest Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP), support for IPv6, integrated threat control with Cisco IOS-XE® firewalls and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Quality of Service (QoS). The XChange6300 ESR uses the same Cisco IOS-XE® 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 XChange6300 ESR is a conduction-cooled XMC/PMC router card that can plug into existing sockets or be used in stand-alone applications. X-ES provides an XChange6300 development platform, along with ruggedized, deployable, packaged router systems.
