The Cisco 3270 Rugged Router is a high-performance rugged processor card designed to support multiple applications running concurrently over wired or wireless networks. With onboard hardware encryption, the Cisco 3270 offloads encryption processing from the router CPU to provide secure, yet scalable video, voice, and data services for outdoor and mobile networks.
With a form factor roughly twice the length of the Cisco 3251MARC, the Cisco 3270 allows for connection of a greater number of peripheral devices, including a broader selection of network interfaces such as fiber, Gigabit Ethernet copper, and universal serial bus (USB). The Cisco 3270 can support a second stack of PC/104-Plus cards for future card expansion. With higher scalability, increased port densities, and greater network module expansion, the Cisco 3270 delivers investment protection for customers deploying embedded, outdoor, and high-end mobile networks in the defense and rail industries.
