Product Description

The RuggedBackbone™ RX5000 is a high port density Ethernet routing and switching platform, designed to operate in harsh environments. The RuggedBackbone™ can withstand high levels of electromagnetic interference, radio frequency interference and a wide temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. This platform is designed to meet the challenging climatic and environmental demands found in utility, industrial and military network applications.

The RX5000’s superior Rugged hardware design coupled with the embedded ROX™II operating system provides improved system reliability when your network needs it the most. The cyber security and networking features make it ideally suited for creating secure Ethernet networks for mission critical, real-time, control applications.

The RX5000 is a scalable, hot-swappable*, modular platform which provides its users with the ability to do in-service changes to the configuration of the RuggedBackbone™ as their network grows or their needs change.
