Small-form-factor network switch for distributed military and avionics applications introduced by Themis

FREMONT, Calif., 1 Nov. 2012. Themis Computer in Fremont, Calif., is introducing the NanoSWITCH small-form-factor network switch for ruggedized, distributed-architecture, networked applications including military, avionics, ground vehicles, command and control, and oil and gas.

The NanoSWITCH, which is optimized for high-density Gigabit Ethernet embedded computing deployments, provides configuration flexibility, support for converged network patterns, and automation of intelligent network services.

The switch includes interfaces that meet access, aggregation, or small-network backbone connectivity requirements, and provides 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports that can operate at reduced rates of 10 and 100 megabits per second and supports managed L2 and L3 functions.

The NanoSWITCH also includes a packet-processing engine along with a TCAM based policy function for secure ingress egress access control. The switch supports IPV4 and IPV6 routing and tunneling, and L2 and L3 VPN services following IETF (VRF, RFC2547), IEEE (802.1ad, 802.1ag) and DSL Forum standards (Q-in-Q), including OAM support for IEEE and RTU extensions.

NanoSWITCH uses sophisticated traffic policies including metering, counting, statistics, scheduling and shaping for optimizing QoS for converged data, voice, and video traffic.

The switch supports sFlow, IPFix and remote port analysis for network traffic monitoring and management. Management of the switch is accomplished through a serial port or through an Ethernet port.

The switch includes an optional X86 single-board computer that can be installed to configure the NanoSWITCH to provide gateway functionality between MIL-STD-1553, CAN 2.0, USB, and RS-232 buses and the Gigabit Ethernet backbone.

The computer board also can function as a distributed architecture system manager for devices connected to the switch and can be accessed through either a serial port or an included monitor/keyboard/mouse connector.

The NanoSWITCH switch is packaged in a 7-by-10-by-1.5-inch water-resistant aluminum enclosure. All port functions are accessed via standard sealed circular-MIL miniature connectors. Caps and retention lanyards are optionally available, but are not required for moisture sealing.
