<>bOptimized for Open Services Networking Applications and Services
The 3ComŽ Open Services Module (OSM) Flexible Interface Card (FIC) integrates Open Services Networking (OSN) applications and services directly into the 3Com MSR 50 Series Multi-Service Routers and 3Com Router 6000 Family.

With its 80 Gb hard disk drive, 1 Gb of memory and pre-installed, secure Linux operating system, the module enables a wide range of applications and services, to be installed directly into the network fabric.

The powerful, flexible design of the OSM FIC extends the capabilities of the MSR 50 Series and the Router 6000 Family beyond that of just secure routing, delivering unprecedented application and services functionality while reducing cost of ownership.

Provides an Open and Flexible Platform
The OSM FIC uses industry-standard Linux, enabling it to support a very wide range of applications and services, including 3Com and third-party applications and those developed in the open source community.

A software development kit (SDK), which provides all the tools and documentation needed to develop additional applications for use on the FIC, is also available.

Reduces Cost of Ownership
By embedding applications within an OSM FIC integrated into a 3Com router, the need for additional appliances or devices is reduced, eliminating redundant management of multiple devices and lowering capital expenditures and reducing operating costs.

Because of the flexible and open nature of the Open Services Networking FIC, new applications can be loaded onto it as organizational needs change, without having to acquire additional hardware.

Integrates Data Flow and Management
The OSM FIC, when installed, is a fully integrated part of the MSR 50 Series or Router 6000 Family. All data flows directed to the module occur across the backplane of the router, ensuring maximum performance and reliability.

Management of the OSM FIC is also fully integrated within the router. The Open Services Networking Control Agent (OSN|CA) provides simple point-and-click installation of applications, authenticated and secure communication with the router itself, and other tools such as upgrade and rollback for the applications on the module.

The agent also communicates directly with the host router to initiate and manage traffic flows, seamlessly and automatically. CLI and SNMP management tools are also supported.
