Ethernet Switch Boosts ISR/C4I System Performance

The NETernity GBX460 6U, OpenVPX data plane switch module emerges as the first 10 Gigabit Ethernet module of its kind to support high throughput interprocessor communication (IPC) between 10 GigE-enabled processing nodes for deployed defense and aerospace apps. With 20 (optionally 24) 10 GigE data plane ports and 16 GigE control plane ports, it supports non-blocking, low latency data transfers across a multiprocessing cluster at rates up to full wire speed, enabling high levels of performance for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) apps. The GBX460 is an unmanaged Layer 2 switch supporting multiple OpenVPX slots/module profiles. A fully managed Layer 2/3 version will be announced early in 2011. GE FANUC INTELLIGENT PLATFORMS, Charlottesville, VA. (434) 978-5000.
