3U VPX Ethernet switch for military embedded computing applications introduced by Interface Concept

BRIEC-DE-L´ODET, France, 22 July 2011. Interface Concept in Briec-De-L´Odet, France, is introducing the 3U OpenVPX ComEth4410a Ethernet fabric switch for aerospace and defense high-speed switch fabric embedded computing applications. The ComEth 4410a is built on the same architecture as the Interface Concept ComEth 40xx family, and supports full-wire-speed L2 bridging and L3 routing with L2-L4 advanced traffic classification, filtering, and prioritization. Managing the ComEth 4410a is the Interface Concept Switchware.

Managing the ComEth 4410a is the Interface Concept Switchware.For the data plane, the ComEth 4410a implements a modular PCI Express Gen2 switch, delivering as much as 32 gigabits per second of switching capacity with low latency.

The switch supports several simultaneous peer-to-peer traffic flows. Each port can be configured as the upstream switch port. Non-Transparent bridging (NTB mode) supports several NT endpoints (for external PCI Express domains or CPUs).

Systems designers can split the switch in independent partitions, and the switch has a micro-controller dedicated to the management plane (VITA 46.11). For more information contact Interface Concept online at www.interfaceconcept.com.
