SBS Technologies has manufactured two types of 6U CompactPCI 24-Port Gigabit Ethernet switches, one for normal temperature conditions Model CP6-GESW24M3 and the other a conduction-cooled version for rugged, heat-sensitive environments Model CP6-GESW24M3N. The CP6-GESW24M3 and CP6-GESW24M3N 24-port switches offer cost-effective high-speed network connectivity for both commercial and environmentally challenging military applications.
Designed for flexible Layer-2 switching and Layer-3 IP network routing, these managed Gigabit Ethernet switch boards require no host intervention or software drivers, resulting in easy installation and use. Both switches are PICMG 2.16 compliant and can function either as a fabric or node board. When used as a node board, two ports are used to connect the switch board to dual fabric connections and the remaining 22 ports are routed to rear panel I/O. The switch can be managed using SSH CLI or Telnet via the RS-232 serial interface or by HTTP or SNMP over Ethernet. An optional front panel RJ-45 connector for out-of-band management is also available.
The available PMC slot will allow developers to expand switch functionality and connectivity options. The switch's extensive built-in test (BIT) functionality enables managers to conveniently test the switch remotely while it is still installed in the system. The BIT feature provides three test modes: Power On, which is run immediately following a power on reset, Background, which is run while the switch is operating and does not interfere with normal switch activity, and Commanded mode for more extensive testing.
