A 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet switch standardizes data throughput in network-centric OpenVPX applications. This fully managed Layer 2/Layer 3 Switch Kontron VX3920 has 24 high-throughput 10 Gbit/s ports to the data plane. These can be scaled through channel bundling even up to 40 Gbit/s bandwidth. This switch lets you replace individual data buses.
The switch has high port density and bandwidth, making it a suitable backbone and infrastructure building block for COTS systems in various mobile and stationary ground based, naval and airborne applications. With up to 60 Gbit/s data throughput provided by one Rear I/O module with 40 Gbit/s Ethernet QSFP+ and two 10 Gbit/s SFP+, it also enables powerful networking for complex system clusters, which are found on larger military intelligence and surveillance applications such as naval vessels.
