If you try to pronounce SFFR, it will probably come out “safer,” which is exactly what the so-named SFFR router from Extreme Engineering Solutions purports to offer: safer, secure, encrypted communications, courtesy of the company’s hardware, running Cisco IOS IP Routing software. At less than 72 cubic inches and 3.5 pounds, the SFFR router provides mobile ad hoc networking for military, heavy industry and emergency response, extending the Cisco enterprise infrastructure beyond the reach of traditional fixed-network infrastructure.

The X-ES SFFR router incorporates Cisco IOS IP Routing Software with Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities to provide highly secure data, voice and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across both wired and wireless links. Combining the SFFR with UHF, VHF, Wi-Fi and other radio platforms enables integrators to create mobile, wireless, ad hoc networks, without requiring a connection to central infrastructure. This rugged router, available in natural convection-cooled, conduction-cooled, or forced air-cooled enclosures, can be installed tomorrow in any vehicle or aircraft and/or deployed in the harshest of environments.

Unique features of SFFR include the rugged router running Cisco IOS Release 15.2GC, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CME) support and Cisco Mobile Ready Net, which allows for mobile ad hoc networking and Radio Aware Routing (RAR) with Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP). In addition there is integrated threat control using Cisco IOS Firewall, Cisco IOS Zone-based Firewall, Cisco IOS Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Cisco IOS Content Filtering. Identity management is supported using authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) and public key infrastructure.

Hardware features include hardware acceleration and hardware encryption, four integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports available via commercial RJ-45, industrial IP66/67, or military D38999 connectors. The mini-system footprint is only 4.88 in. (W) x 1.90 in. (H) x 7.70 in. (L) = 71.4 in3. Included is an integrated MIL-STD-704 28V DC power supply with MIL-STD-461 E/F EMI filtering and the whole system meets MIL-STD-810F environmental and MIL-STD-461E EMI specifications.
