Expeditionary Communications Software Definable Network-Appliance
The XC-SDNA is a highly portable, rugged software programmable communications solution that combines the functionality of an IP router and a Virtual Machine (VM) server. The XC-SDNA offers enterprise-class Virtualized Networking Function (VNF) performance in a small size, weight, and low power (SWaP) device that is durable enough to withstand the rigors of mobile and portable use in the most austere locations. The XC-SDNA is part of a family of small, low-profile appliances that can be used individually or paired with other XC appliances as part of assembling a truly scalable executive communications capability. Other XC devices include the XC-6300, the XC-3300, the SDNA-HK, and the XC PSU/UPS.
The XC SDN-A is based on our Software Definable Network-Appliance (SDN-A) technology, which allows users to create an individualized IP networking appliance based on the use of Virtualized Networking Functions (VNFs). SDN-A’s support several different virtual machine hypervisors, along with virtual networking functions from companies such as Cisco, Aruba, Juniper, Palo Alto, Haivision. When used with Linux based hypervisor, users benefit from the SDNA-XC’s cellular and Wi-Fi transport technologies.
Scalability with other XC Devices
The XC products are modular, interoperable, and scalable with other Expeditionary Communications devices to meet IP networking requirements of any complexity. XC devices enable you to create flexible, scalable, secure, software defined small and light sophisticated comprised solutions to meet nearly any mission requirements.
IAS Router Operating System (IAs ROS)
The IAS Router Operating System is a secure, high performance, enterprise-class IP router/ VPN gateway/ Virtual Machine Hypervisor that was custom developed from the ground up to support military and government deployable communications use cases. The IAS ROS uses patented WAN technology management capability providing Communicators:
- Offers multiple WAN technologies, including Ethernet, 4G/5G Cellular, Wi-Fi WAN and SATCOM
- 802.11ac and 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 radios as either a traditional Wi-Fi access point and/or Wi-Fi client/WAN
- 5 Gigabit RJ45 Ethernet, all routable with individual MAC addresses using Intel Ethernet controllers
- User accessible SIM slot, that requires no tools to change
- Optional 2.5” SSD drive “bump” for applications that require up to 15TB of SSD storage
- USB 3.0, Mini Display Port, and USB console port to support field configurability and various use cases
