Rugged MTN5915 Cisco Router

Rugged MTN5915 Cisco Router

Rugged Cisco Mobile Router/Switch

The MTN5915 is a repackaged, rugged Cisco 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) card. The ruggedized MTN5915 is a perfect solution for harsh environments. The fully sealed design supports extended temperature operation as well as harsh shock, vibration, and altitude requirements. It provides five 10/100 Ethernet ports (2X WAN uplinks, 3X LAN ports) along with standard or custom connections. Internal wide range DC power and power conditioning are also accommodated.

It is built to survive shock and vibrations as it is milled from solid aircraft aluminum to provide unmatched structural rigidity. The aluminum chassis is ultra-rugged and fully conduction-cooled. It also includes an integrated GigE Ethernet switch and provides secure yet scalable data for a variety of applications.

All outer MIL-Spec circular connectors are sealed and water tight. The entire MTN5915 chassis which is also protected from all the elements. The standard temperature range is -15 degrees Celsius to +55 degrees Celsius. Extended temperature ranges from -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius making this router tough in nearly all environments.

Core Systems designs the Cisco MTN5915 to meet or exceed the military specifications listed to the right.
