ImageStream Internet Solution - Pro Series Router

Pro Series routers include the Rebel Pro™, Gateway Pro™, Enterprise Pro™, and Carrier Pro II™. The Pro Series is extremely competitive in terms of price and performance. ImageStream is able to minimize the cost of components and software licensing by using the Enterprise Linux™ router distribution, off-the-shelf CompactPCI and PMC components, and mass-produced enclosures.

Pro Series routers include premium features like heavy duty 19" rackmount chassis, front panel serviceability, hot-swap network cards, flash disk reliability, and a 2 Gbps backplane (64-bit 33 MHz CompactPCI). Except for the Rebel Pro, all Pro Series routers include hot-swap redundant power supplies. Pro Series routers also offer many advanced options including support for DC power, 23" rack mounting, removable flash cards, packet processing engines, and high availability (HA).
