The Internet of Things (IoT) - Embedded Networks

Secure, Reliable Connectivity in Extreme Environments

The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is bringing networking to new device types and locations. Networks must reliably and securely connect people and things in environments with weather and temperature extremes. These networks must also provide seamless mobile connectivity on devices with size, weight, and power limitations in any location, under any circumstance.

The IoT and Cisco Embedded Networking Solutions

Cisco Embedded Networking Solutions provide reliable, secure operation in the most harsh environments and extreme temperatures to meet the most demanding applications.

Designed for use in public safety, transportation, defense, oil and gas exploration, energy and mining, Cisco Embedded Services Solutions bring your business closer to the benefits of the IoT.

Cisco Embedded Services Routers

Our embedded solutions are powered by Cisco IOS Software, an advanced, state-of-the-art, high-availability networking software. With Cisco IOS Software, you can continually optimize your network, rapidly add features and applications, and integrate third-party network equipment, systems, and services.

In addition, all embedded solutions support Cisco Mobile Ready Net, the platform for extending information sharing and collaboration to highly mobile users -- even those operating in the most severe and remote locations in any kind of mobile environment.

The Cisco ESR 5915 Embedded Services Router extends IP network routing and services to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links. It can be embedded into existing systems and provide mobile connectivity in heavy industrial, public safety, transportation, and defense applications. With an industry-standard form factor, based on the PC/104 standard, it is available in both air - and conduction-cooled models.

The Cisco ESR 5921 is a software-based router application designed to operate on small, low-power handheld or mobile devices and provide highly secure, reliable networking capabilities. In applications where equipment size, weight, and power consumption are critical factors, the Cisco ESR 5921 helps deliver multiple applications and robust communications capabilities.

The Cisco ESR 5940 is a plug-and-play, high-performance compact PCI router card. It is available in both air - and conduction-cooled models. With the ESR 5940, you can establish a highly scalable mobile network in vehicles so you can securely extend your organization's first-responder vehicles, armored vehicles, and passenger and freight rail trains.

Cisco Embedded Service Switches

Cisco ESS 2020 Series Switches can collect data from remote locations for real-time analysis by experts located at a remote site or headquarters. They can also help monitor the transit of vehicles and equipment to remote sites. Connected sensors can monitor the condition of the vehicles, cargo, or crew, and convey this information to remote data centers or to other vehicles.

The Cisco ESS 2020 Series is available in two card configurations and meets all standards for extreme temperature operation, with low power consumption.
