New rugged network switch keeps devices connected in harsh conditions

Crystal Group has introduced a new high performance rugged network
switch designed to keep critical electronics connected in even the most extreme
environments. The leading computer hardware designer-manufacturer takes their
enterprise-level Ruckus wired solutions to harsh environments with the new
RCS7150 network switch.

Any operational environment requires their devices to remain connected,
regardless of the environment, to help ensure safety and mission success.
The RCS7150 addresses this specific need by delivering a rugged reliable
system featuring robust enterprise-level capabilities.

Crystal Group’s RCS7150 rugged network switches in a 12-port configuration
deliver up to 240 gigabits per second (Gb/s) stacking bandwidth, up to 68 Gb/s
full duplex switching capacity, and up to 51 maximum packets per second (Mpps)
forwarding capacity. The 24-port configuration delivers up to 480 Gb/s stacking
bandwidth, up to 132 Gb/s full duplex switching capacity, and up to 98 Mpps
forwarding capacity.

Based on the Ruckus ICX 7150 Series stackable switch with a 9.75-inch depth,
the RCS7150 is housed in a rugged, lightweight, and compact enclosure with
an option of a transit case or a 19-inch rack with strain-hardened,
aircraft-grade aluminium, designed to survive harsh environments including
extreme temperatures or high shock and vibration.

Key features of the RCS7150 rugged network switch also include support for
IPv6 routing; plug-and-play functionality; compatibility with industry command
line technology enabling the integration of multiple units into a single
logical unit addressable with a single IP address; both 12- and 24-port configurations
available in a 1U form factor and weighing just 3.63kg; mounting compliant with
the EIA-310 19-inch rack standard using Delrin glides or a fixed mount; and
extended operating temperature range between -40¡C and +55¡C.

Crystal Group’s rugged network switches combine enterprise-class
functionality and MIL-SPEC environmental performance to provide reliable,
high-throughput connectivity and data handling in deployed environments.
