5288 – Net Tool Optimizer

Anue Systems (Now Ixia), approached Pump for assistance developing a new high density network monitoring switch. The product had a long list of requirements, including hot-swappable components (e.g. input/output trays, fan modules, and power supplies), broad temperature range with narrow component operating limits, and strict regulatory certification (NEBS Level 1).

Pump supported the product throughout the full development cycle, providing the initial mechanical architecture, performing detailed mechanical design, and supporting Anue as they brought the 5288 NTO through testing and certification. Thermal challenges were met using iterative cFD analysis and extensive testing to ensure the product would perform as expected in the field.
