The new model is available to OPNET's customers as part of OPNET's IT Guru, Modeler, and SP Guru products.

The Cisco 3200 Series Mobile Access Router is optimized for mobile vehicular applications, which pioneer a shift in the way organizations communicate and share information across wireless networks.

The Cisco 3200 Series Mobile Access Router, with the Mobile IP and Mobile Networks functionality in Cisco IOS Cisco IOS (originally Internetwork Operating System) is the software used on the vast majority of Cisco Systems routers and all current Cisco network switches. IOS is a package of routing, switching, internetworking and telecommunications functions tightly integrated with a  Software, offers secure data, voice and video communications, seamless mobility and interoperability The capability of two or more hardware devices or two or more software routines to work harmoniously together. For example, in an Ethernet network, display adapters, hubs, switches and routers from different vendors must conform to the Ethernet standard and interoperate with each other.  for networks in motion--entire networks of communication devices in moving vehicles such as airplanes, ships, tanks and trains--and is designed for "always-on" connectivity.

OPNET's mobile IP model was designed to enhance the military's communications and operations infrastructure. The mobile IP model predicts the scalability and performance of specific Cisco Mobile IP deployments in brigade, battalion, and division scenarios.

, vice president, for Cisco Systems Global Defense and Space Group stated, "The OPNET modeling capability is important to us because it provides an opportunity for us to work closely with our customers to demonstrate Cisco Mobile Network features in their unique mission environments. The Cisco Mobile Networks features in Cisco IOS provide a unique mobile IP solution, which extends the edge of the IP network to vehicles. Demonstrating this via the OPNET model allows for more efficient deployment and management of mobile IP solutions. The Cisco IOS Mobile Network features are designed for incorporation into communications systems In telecommunication, a communications system is a collection of individual communications networks, transmission systems, relay stations, tributary stations, and data terminal equipment (DTE) usually capable of interconnection and interoperation to form an integrated whole.  that are customized and installed by Cisco Defense and Space system integration partners."

Founded in 1986, OPNET Technologies is the pioneer and leading provider of Intelligent Network Management software.
