Cisco 5940 Embedded Services Router
About the Cisco 5940 Embedded Services Router
The Cisco 5940 ESR is a high-performance, ruggedized router designed for use in harsh environments—offering reliable operation in extreme temperatures and under shock and vibration conditions typical for mobile applications in rugged terrain. With onboard hardware encryption, the Cisco 5940 ESR offloads encryption processing from the router engine to provide highly secure yet scalable video, voice, and data services for mobile and embedded outdoor networks. The router offers high performance, four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and a rich Cisco IOS Software feature set, providing investment protection for customers deploying bandwidth-intensive applications in mobile or embedded networks in public safety, transportation, defense, and energy markets.
The Cisco 5940 ESR is a 3U CompactPCI (CPCI) router card that is available in both air- and conduction-cooled models. At only 100 x 160 mm (roughly the size of a 4- x 6-in. photograph), the Cisco 5940 ESR solves critical size, weight, and power challenges. Cisco has an ecosystem of partners and systems integrators that embed Cisco 5900 Series Router Cards into industry-standard, commercially available enclosures and custom enclosures, tailored to the unique environments in which these routers are deployed. An optional rear transition module (RTM) is available for applications requiring access to the I/O connectors through standard RJ-45 connectors.
