GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, has recently announced the RES-210 Rugged Ethernet Switch. Designed for demanding applications that will be deployed in harsh environments-such as on board military platforms that are subject to high altitudes, vibration, shock, temperature extremes, humidity and salt fog- the RES-210 is one of the smallest, lightest 10-port fully managed Layer 2/3+ Gigabit Ethernet switches available, making it ideal for size/weight constrained deployments.
A successor to the widely-installed RES-210 Rugged Ethernet Switch, it includes support for IPv6 as well as for IPv4. In the near future, support for the IPv6 will be a requirement for military and defence customers and the RES-210 Rugged Ethernet Switch offers a path forward to next generation Internet systems with their larger address space, and improved security, reliability and flexibility. Provision of a 28v power supply that is both MIL-STD-704E- and MIL-STD-1275B-compliant allows the RES-210 to be configured in ground vehicles and aircraft as well as other military platforms, making it especially flexible.
The RES-210 Rugged Ethernet Switch is based on Ge Fanuc’s recently-announced CP923RC Gigabit Ethernet switch, and is enclosed in a rugged, small form factor chassis. It features GE Fanuc’s OpenWare switch management environment. Comprehensive and powerful, OpenWare provides integrated management services including configuration, monitoring, switching control, addressing, routing and all supported protocols, Configuration and monitoring functions are accessible from a serial console or via a network. Supported access methods include Telnet, SSH and SNMP.
