        4-Port Router
        Multi-Port Firewall
        Distributed Network/Remote Storage

ARBITROTM modular design provides a complete development platform. Features include:

        Optimized Linux OS
        IP Routing and Bridging
        VPN (IPSec, PPTP, L2TP)
        File Server for Storage Devices
        Advanced Data Encryption Engine

                     ARBITROTM Modular System Architecture

ARBITROTM is a generic embedded processor solution based on the Intel IXP-4XX processor.
The design is divided into three (3) modules:

        Processor Module
        Breakout Module
        Power Module

                                               The three modules are stacked in a
                                               two-layer design. The Processor and
                                               Power Modules are located on layer one
                                               and the breakout module is connected
                                               via PMC style connectors.

                                               Upon request, Rotani offers complete
                                               hardware evaluations kits and can
                                               arrange for high volume manufacturing
                                               for all three modules.

    Standard processor board uses the IXP-425/533 MHz.
    Support for 2 or 3 radios depending on version.
