Switch/Router/Time Server Enlists For Military Duty

OnTime Networks expands its military-grade Gigabit Ethernet switch and router portfolio with the CloudberryMIL CR-6900 Series, a commercial off the shelf (COTS), fully managed Layer 2/3 Ethernet switch with an embedded Cisco 5921 Embedded Services Router (ESR) IOS and network time server capability (IEEE 1588 PTP, NTP, IRIG, 1PPS), in a rugged housing. Designed to provide reliable, high-performance connectivity for extremely demanding size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints in harsh demanding environments, the unit is suitable for forward-fit and retrofit applications. It provides a technology advantage for deploying data, video and voice services virtually anywhere LAN/WAN connectivity may be required, especially in mobile, airborne, ground, manned or unmanned vehicle and sensor applications. With routing speeds of up to 500 mbps for the Cisco 5921 ESR package or near full wire speeds for OnTime Networks' own router package, the unit offers a powerful network solution.

 

With up to 48 gigabit Ethernet and four 10 gigabit Ethernet ports, the CR-6253F2 provides a robust network routing architecture with the performance, security, quality of service (QoS), high availability and manageability that customers expect from Cisco IOS-based technologies. The familiar Cisco IOS router software and the Cisco-like CLI interface on the switch management side minimize training requirements and provide extensive support for IPv4/IPv6 routing protocols, IP multicasting, Radio Aware Routing (RAR), Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP), remote VoIP, Firewall/IPS/IDS, Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) and Mobile IP routing for connectivity in Comms on the Move (COTM) applications.

Its modular rugged design, enclosed in a rugged 19" 2U housing, requires no active cooling and will provide a number of connector options (RJ-45 and 38999). The unit features a military-grade power supply for aircraft (MIL-STD-704F) and ground (MIL-STD-1275D) vehicle use, as well as MIL-STD-461F EMI/EMC filtering.
