RUGGEDCOM RX1400

Combining Ethernet switching, wireless LAN, routing and firewall functionality in one, the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 holds its own in the most demanding industrial environments. As a cellular router, it eliminates the need for extensive communication infrastructures. In addition to providing IP40 protection, it requires no internal fans for cooling to operate reliably in an extended temperature range of -40° C to +85° C.

Ruggedcom RX1400

The RUGGEDCOM RX1400, thanks to its compact form factor and multi-function capability, offers a cost saving solution for large scale deployments by avoiding the need for multi-device solutions to achieve the needed interface, switching, routing and application hosting capabilities.

RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 Virtual Environment

The RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 provides a virtualized environment to run a guest Linux operating system and third party applications
on the RX1400, enabling intelligence at the network edge.

Virtualization allows a full Linux image (with dedicated storage media and I/O ports) to run in parallel with the RUGGEDCOM ROX II, using a Linux KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) based solution. The KVM ensures that the guest OS and third party applications can run without impacting RUGGEDCOM RX1400 core services running on the system. Click here to learn more.
