Compact, high-performance routers01 February 2017 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
INSYS icom says it will launch a new MRO series of compact, high-performance professional routers in April 2017. This series of routers is based on the established MRX modular router platform and support edge as well as cloud computing, says the company.
Features include a built-in icom SmartBox and LXC-based Linux environment for edge computing: the icom SmartBox allows for local storage and processing of data that, according to the company, enables programs and scripts to be executed regardless of the router operating system and configuration. This is made possible by Linux containers (LXC) which run different applications independently and completely closed off from each other.
