SDN Appliances

Software Definable Network Appliances™ (SDN-A™) are portable, robust, software programmable communications solutions for secure voice, video and data feeds over a variety commercial network technologies including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Cellular, MANET, SATCOM and more.

SDNA-XCB

Software Definable Network-Appliance™

The latest cutting-edge addition to the portfolio of Software Definable Network AppliancesTM, the SDNA-XCB, combines the capabilities of an “all WAN technology consuming” IP networking router, an 8 port Ethernet switch (with 4 802.3at PoE ports), and an enterprise-class virtual machine server into a single Expeditionary Communications (XC) form factor

SDN-A Technology

A single SDNA-XCB device can host a dozen or more Virtualized Networking Functions (VNFs) or virtualized application servers. VNFs can include IP routers, firewalls, certificate authorities, IDS/IPSs, Wi-Fi controllers, domain controllers, file servers, WAN acceleration VMs, RoIP media server VMs, and application server VMs, and many other virtualized appliances and servers.

Scalability with Tactical Field Office

The SDNA-XCB is one of a family of Expeditionary Communications (XC) appliances designed for use as standalone desktop appliances or within the Expeditionary Networking Kit (XNK) or the XNK–MINI Chassis Systems. The XNK-Mini is a carbon fiber VIP roller board case that is small enough to stow in an aircraft overhead storage bin.
