Rugged Ethernet Communication Switches

May 8, 2008
The CP6923 6U CompactPCI Gbit Ethernet switch for high-end communication solutions is available in three rugged levels. 

The switch is a PICMG 2.16 compliant 6U CompactPCI managed Ethernet switch with 24 link ports and two 10GbE XFP uplink connections. Three levels defined as R1, R2 and R3 are offered. The R2 and R3 versions are available with E2 capabilities (extended temperature range from -40°C to 85°C). The R1-version is designed for standard application requirements in air-cooled environments. The R2-version is ruggedized for higher shock and vibration environments in accordance with the EN60068-2-27/64 specification. The R3-version is fully conduction cooled and meets VITA 47’s ECC4 requirements. These three versions make the CP6923 CompactPCI switch an ideal partner for the vendor’s CP6001 CPU board with Intel Core Duo/Core 2 Duo that is also available in R1, R2 and R3 versions. Built around the company’s BCM56500 Gigabit Ethernet switch chip, the CP6923 is designed for services such as VoIP installations for call servers, media gateways and trunking gateways (both wired and wireless networks).
