Officials of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Carderock Division in West Bethesda, Md., announced plans this week to buy 30 Advantech EKI-7758F 8G port industrial managed redundant Gigabit Ethernet switches and 30 Advantech SFP-GSX/LC-AE 1000 Base-SX multi-mode modules.
NSWC Carderock is the Navy's center of excellence for ships and ship systems, and performs research and development, test and evaluation for the Navy's ships, submarines, military watercraft, and unmanned vehicles.
The Advantech EKI-7758F is a 4G+4 small form-factor pluggable (SFP) gigabit managed redundant industrial Ethernet switch with four copper Gigabit Ethernet ports and four SFP ports.
The Advantech SFP-GSX/LC-AE is an SFP transceiver module for 1000 Base-SX Multi mode SFP module. It has an immovable lock design; is hot pluggable; duplex LC connector; full-duplex speeds; TTL signal detect indicator; 3.3-volt DC power supply; EMI performance for high port density; and is RoHS compliant.
Navy officials say they intend to solicit and negotiate only with Advantech. Still, companies interested may respond to the requirement or submit proposals. All proposals received by 19 Nov. 2013 will be considered. Information received will be considered solely for determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement.
To submit proposals or ask questions, email the Navy's Gina Trasferini at [email protected]. More information is online at https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DON/NAVSEA/N00167/N65540-14-T-5004/listing.html.
