MPL’s µGUARD firewall, router or access point for rugged environments

Backplane Systems Technology introduces MPL’s µGUARD multipurpose firewall, router or access point
for rugged environments.

The rugged µGUARD comes
with the assurance of long-term availability, with the design optimised for
ultra-low power consumption, small size (SwaP-C), high flexibility and extended
temperature operation (-40¡C up to +85¡C).

The µGUARD can be
expanded with up to 10 additional manageable LAN ports. It is available as
OpenFrame on a cooling plate to be mounted in existing housings or cabinets,
and in a standard industrial housing for wall or DIN-rail mounting.

A TX2FX module can
be integrated if the application requires fibre. Alternatively, MPL offers a
firewall solution with RJ45, M12, or MIL-38999 connectors. The standard operating
temperature range is -20¡C to +60¡C with an optional extended temperature range
of -40¡C up to +85¡C.

The μGUARD comes
preinstalled with an adapted version of OpenWRT. This Linux based embedded
distribution provides all functionality required for operation as IPV4 and/or
IPV6 firewall and router.

Key features also
include wide input voltage range of 8-36VDC; 1 Gbit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000
Mbit support); 2 x mPCIe slot for WLAN, GPRS, LTE, mSATA SSD; 1 x M.2 slot
