SOFIC 2019: OnTime Networks Brings Rugged Router Solution

CM/CR-6228 Series combines latest hardware & software in a SWaP optimised packaging

At SOFIC 2019, on booth #1650 in Tampa, FL/USA this week, OnTime Networks exhibits its fully rugged military multi-function commercial off the shelf (COTS) All-in-One system that features 10GB Ethernet Switch, Router, GPS Time Server and Computer.

The new CM/CR-6228 Series can combine the capabilities of a 28 Port GB/10GB Ethernet Switch, Layer 3 Router, GPS Time Server and Computer in one compact design.

The CM/CR-6228 Series has been recently selected for an international multi-engine mission aircraft programme. The selection of the CM/CR-6228 was influenced by its high performance modular, scalable and future-proof architecture, as well as its advanced features and compact size.

The new CM/CR-6228 Series provides four (4) different capabilities in one size, weight and power (SWaP) -optimised Multi-Function COTS all-in-one platform.

The new CM/CR-6228 Series not only combines the latest hardware and software in a SWaP optimised packaging, but also features great modularity (mix and match functionality), which is highly attractive to address Department of Defense (DoD) programme needs. The integrated GbE/10GbE switch provides a total of 28 Ethernet ports, of which 24 ports are10/100/1000 BASE-T ports and 4 ports are 1000 or 10000 BASE-T or SR. The CM/CR-6228 Series enables secure, managed network routing and GbE switching capabilities for onboard communications and computing subsystems. The unit is specifically designed to provide reliable, high-performance connectivity for extremely demanding SWaP constraints in harsh, demanding environments (e.g. high altitude, extreme shock and vibration, extended temperatures, humidity, dust and water exposure, noisy EMI, dirty power).

The CM/CR-6228 Series router implementation is based on a separate router board with an Intel Atom processor and can either be equipped with the OnTime Networks router package providing routing speeds of up to 800Mbps or with the Cisco 5921 Embedded Services Router (ESR) Advanced Enterprise router package, or the Architecture Technology Corp. (ATC) Routing and Encryption Suite (ARES) with NIAP, CSfC, and Common Criteria (CC) certification.

Its modular, rugged design, enclosed in a completely sealed housing against dust and water ingress (IP68), requires no active cooling and provides MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. 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.
