Backplane Systems Technology presents MPL’s range of firewall/router products
specifically designed for industrial and defence applications where security,
quality, reliability, low power consumption, and long-term availability are key
MPL’s firewall/router products find application in remote monitoring and
maintenance, and secure communication in automation and defence among many
Key features include wide power supply of 8-36VDC; fanless operation; operating
temperature range of -40¡C to +85¡C; 3x Gigabit Ethernet ports (RJ45, M12,
D38999 or Fibre), Open Frame, Standard, or MIL housing up to IP67
(wall/flange/rack mounting); optional integration of managed switch (copper or
fibre); mPCIe port for WLAN or GPRS; and EN50155 Class Tx (+85¡C) certification.
Designed for long-term availability, MPL’s firewall/router can operate in
harsh environments without fans or ventilation holes thanks to the specially
designed housings, and can be easily mounted on a 35mm DIN rail or wall. The
compact housing (CEC housing 62x120x162mm) offers sufficient space to add a
MAGBES (Managed Gigabit Switch) and/or SSD/HDD. MIL spec housings are optionally
available to meet specific application requirements.
MPL offers copper ports as well as SFP ports for various fibre optical
solutions, making the product universal in application. The firewall/router
also features an internal mini PCIe slot, allowing multiple extensions such as
WLAN or GPRS; an externally available USB connector and a microSD memory card
slot, allowing easy logging and/or configuration; and optional backplane enabling
customisation with additional interfaces.
MPL can supply the devices pre-installed with an adapted version of
OpenWRT, a Linux based embedded distribution that provides all the functionality
needed to operate as IPV4 and/or IPV6 firewall and router.
