Cisco Embedded Service 3300 Series Switches

Cisco Embedded Service 3300 Series Switches for IoT

Ruggedized, Custom designed Switches

The Embedded Service 3300 Series (ESS 3300) lets third-party partner integrators build custom Gigabit Ethernet switching solutions for a range of IoT use cases. The ESS 3300 is ideal for environments with specialized form-factor, size, weight, power, port-density, port-media, and ruggedization needs.

Features and capabilities

Flexible port-density options

Modular Gigabit Ethernet boards

The 3300 Series provides one or two embedded boards in a PC104 form factor to meet your port-density needs. The mainboard offers 2 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 8 ports of Gigabit Ethernet, and an expansion-module board adds 16 ports of Gigabit Ethernet.

IOS XE operating system

Advanced IOS XE operating system

The ESS 3300 runs Cisco's enterprise-grade IOS XE. The operating system offers best-in-class security, management, resiliency, and switching features. You can use familiar Cisco CLI or GUI-based web UI to configure switches built with Embedded Service 3300.

Ruggedized for extreme environments

Ruggedized for extreme environments

ESS 3300 boards are ruggedized for industrial conditions, including extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, and high mean time between failures (MTBF). Cisco partners and integrators can develop ruggedized enclosures for customers.

Power over Ethernet

Power over Ethernet

The ESS 3300 is software ready to support native PoE and PoE+. Integrators can follow Cisco reference design to build PoE systems with custom-designed enclosures to suit customers' PoE needs.

Rich Layer 2 switching features

Rich Layer 2 switching features

The 3300 Series supports the Network Essentials (Layer 2) feature set.

How you can use it

Defense and aerospace

Defense and aerospace

Deploy ESS 3300 switches to build advanced tactical networks that provide highly secure and reliable high-speed connectivity. Deliver highly secure broadband for voice, video, and data communication. Integrators can use the ESS 3300 in the communication systems of military vehicles, aircraft, helicopters, drones, and ships.

Oil and gas

Oil and gas

Oil and gas companies need to monitor and analyze data from some of the most remote, harshest environments in the world. Use the ESS 3300 to build reliable networks that can monitor high-value assets and collect data for real-time data analysis. Drive efficiencies and increase safety while operating in remote and hazardous locations.

Transportation

Transportation

Install the ESS 3300 Series where your applications require high-quality voice, video, and data connectivity: in trains, commercial airplanes, automobiles, trucks, and first-responder and emergency vehicles. Integrators can build switches with custom interfaces and the right level of mechanical ruggedization--ingress protection, temperature, shock vibration--based on application needs.
