The SWE540 6U OpenVPX 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch provides high speed Ethernet connectivity for high performance computing solutions such as the SBC627 single board computer and the DSP282A digital signal processor. This switch helps deliver performance upgrades for the manufacturer’s pre-integrated mission ready systems. These solutions target high performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications requiring the transfer of large amounts of data with the lowest possible latency such as radar, surveillance, situational awareness and imaging.
The rugged SWE540 is powerful and flexible, representing a 6U OpenVPX 40GigE switch currently available that supports full Layer 2/3 features including hardware Layer 3 forwarding at fabric speed rates. Layer 3 switching and routing is a critical requirement for advanced security and complex networks. It provides dynamic routing over standard routing protocols, enabling a flexible range of network/fabric configurations and applications.
Patent-pending cooling technology limits system thermal load while still enabling the switch to run at peak performance.
The switch supports multiple OpenVPX profiles and uses the latest high performance switch silicon technology to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet performance across 20 ports.
The switch features OpenWare switch management software, allowing it to be customized for specific customer requirements. OpenWare supports a range of network protocols and MIBs (management information bases) with capabilities for multicast, Quality of Service, VLANs, and differentiated services. The OpenWare management interface may be accessed via serial console, SNMP, Telnet, SSH or web interface.
The combination of the SWE540’s hardware and the OpenWare switch management software delivers comprehensive security capabilities. Designed for deployment in security-sensitive mission critical applications, SWE540 features include denial of service attack prevention, user password mechanisms with multiple levels of security and military level authorization schemes including 802.1X and sanitization to allow the overwrite of non-volatile storage if a system is compromised. Survivability is also enhanced by ECC protection on the management processor memory, which offers higher reliability in harsh environments.
The SWE540 is available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions, and can optionally support four QSFP+ and two 1000BaseT ports on the front panel. Rear transition modules are available to enable access to 40 Gigabit and one Gigabit ports off the backplane.
