SBS Technologies, represented by Metromatics , has introduced the Sabre 2000; a 6U CompactPCI extended fabric switch that provides maximum flexibility and high switching density.
Sabre 2000 features a 16 or 24 port 10/100/1000Base T layer 2 Ethernet switch with non-blocking operation for 20 ports, making it suitable for advanced telecommunications and enterprise applications requiring multiple interface options and high switching densities.
Sabre 2000 complies with the PICMG 2.16 packet switching backplane specification as an extended fabric board and is hot swap compliant for integration into high availability systems.
Auto-negotiation at the port level provides seamless interpretability for a mix of Ethernet connection speeds and modes.
The chipset used on Sabre 2000 provides extensive capabilities, including 2MB of packet memory and automatic flow control.
Sabre 2000 provides 24 link ports. Various configuration options route one or both link ports to the backplane as additional node links. An optional rear transition module provides access to Ethernet ports not used in the backplane (up to 24 ports).
