GE Fanuc , a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, announced the NETernity CP923RC 3U CompactPCI fully managed Layer 2/3+ Gigabit Ethernet switch. Designed for demanding applications in aerospace, defense and commercial environments, the CP923RC responds to the growing demand for high performance switching solutions in Ethernet networks that are becoming increasingly pervasive across all industries. The CP923RC can switch network traffic both externally to, and within, a chassis.
NETernity CP923RC 3U CompactPCI fully-managed gigabit switch is cost-effective, flexible, easy to deploy. Features include:
- 10 ports to rear I/O delivers optimum density
- IPv6 support for greater security, reliability and flexibility
- Rugged versions for non-benign environments
- OpenWare switch management software for ease of use
Characterized by the high port density it offers, with ten 10/100/1000BaseT ports routed to rear I/O, the CP923RC supports IPv6, the protocol that is allowing improved security, reliability and flexibility. It also provides enhanced support for mobile devices and a significantly larger number of Internet addresses. The CP923RC is available as standard in air-cooled, rugged air-cooled, and conduction-cooled versions. The air-cooled versions are hot swappable for maximum availability.
The CP923RC extends our strategy of providing a broad range of highly flexible Ethernet network management products, allowing us to offer customers precisely the right solution in terms of form factor, capability and price/performance. The CP923RC delivers improved performance and ease of use while ensuring easy migration through its pin-compatibility with preceding products.
In common with other members of the extensive NETernity family of managed switches, the CP923RC supports GE Fanuc’s OpenWare™ switch management firmware that provides integrated management services including configuration, monitoring, switching control, addressing, routing and an extensive number of supported protocols. OpenWare can be customized to meet particular customer requirements.
