New Rugged Networking System Provides Higher Performance in Edge Computing

New NetSys-5303 from Elma provides more secure data communications across wireless channels

FREMONT, Calif., May 2017 – Elma Electronic has extended its NetSys-530x family of rugged, secure networking products with the NetSys-5303, which now adds edge computing capabilities on top of the rich Cisco-enabled routing functions of earlier NetSys systems.  The model 5305 also incorporates the latest in Intel Core i7 CPU options, multi-terabyte data storage plus GigE ports expansion.

Based on Elma’s building block design concept for modular electronics, the NetSys-5303 is an extendable and configurable system enabling cost-effective upgrades for future expansion or system redefinition.

The new NetSys-5303 offers higher performance computing as well as secure routing connectivity to a wide range of applications in ground, ship and air defense equipment, drilling and mining operations, commercial air and ground transport infrastructure, energy distribution and homeland security and emergency services.

Steve Gudknecht, Systems Product Marketing Manager, Elma Electronic, noted, “Edge computing allows certain computational, storage and networking operations to be offloaded from the central processing infrastructure, improving overall application performance.  Our rugged, compact NetSys-5303 performs pre-processing tasks at the network edge, while bringing more secure data processing to in-the-field, remote and mobile applications.”

In addition to a choice of Intel Core i7 CPUs, the system features dual routing ports, nine GigE and FE switching ports, a high capacity, multi-terabyte removable storage bay and optional CANbus support.

Its modular design enables a host of I/O options including a full range of video, audio, USB, digital and GPIO connectivity. Highly visible front LEDs indicate power and system status as well as link activity.

Routing is provided by integrated Cisco IOS Embedded Services Routing (ESR) software for secure data, voice and video communications across wired and wireless links.  This dependable architecture provides secure connectivity for mobile and remote data applications.

The SWaP-optimized NetSys-5303 platform incorporates Elma’s extensive experience in rugged packaging design for harsh application environments. Features include an IP67 rating for ingress protection, MIL-STD 810 compliance for extended temperature, shock and vibration requirements, and a power supply that is MIL-STD-704F, 1275D and 461F compliant.
