Backplane Systems Technology is proud to present MPL’s µGUARD Multipurpose Firewall, Router or Access-Point for Rugged Environments.

The new Rugged µGUARD acts as multipurpose Firewall, Router or Access Point and comes with long-term availability. The design is optimized for ultra-low power consumption, small size (SwaP-C) and with highest flexibility, plus the capability for operation in extended temperature (-40° 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. If the application requires fiber, a TX2FX module can be integrated. Alternatively, MPL offers a firewall solution with RJ45, M12, or MIL-38999 Connectors. The standard operating temperature range is -20°C to +60°C and is also available with an optional extended temperature range of -40° 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.
