3U CompactPCI IPv4/v6 Gigabit Ethernet Switch with Range of Management Interfaces
Page 1 of 1
With up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports, a new fully managed IPv4/v6 switch is a cost-effective, high-performance solution for harsh environments. The new 3U CompactPCI CP3929 switch from Kontron is designed to meet the growing demand for high-performance IPv4/v6 Ethernet switching for rugged intra- and inter-system communications. With its implemented Kontron Embedded Network Technology, which unifies an advanced feature set and a wide range of operational interfaces across multiple form factors, the Kontron CP3923 is aimed at enabling system designers to build new applications most efficiently. The extensive management capabilities plus a set of configuration services for OEM applications reduce customers’ hardware and software design efforts, thus minimizing costs and time-to-market.
The Gigabit Ethernet Switch CP3923 is a fully managed Layer 2/3 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch offering IPv4 routing and optional IPv6 routing as well as full management capabilities. It supports CLI, Telnet, Web and SNMP management interfaces to configure the entire set of protocols and parameters including Layer 2 and Layer 3 (IPv4/v6) protocols, Multicasting, QoS and Security. For applications requiring higher bandwidth, it also supports link aggregation. On top of that, the CP3923 maximizes the reliability of rugged COTS applications by supporting Intelligent Platform Management (IPMI) and hot-swap capabilities.
The base configuration (CP3923-8C) supports eight GbE ports via RJ45 and eight GbE ports via rear I/O to ensure high-connectivity capabilities and broadband flexibility. Two additional versions directly target transportation and mobile applications, providing four (CP3923-4M) or eight (CP3923-8M) Fast Ethernet ports via M12-D connectors. All versions support eight GbE via rear I/O. To have access to the 8x GbE ports routed to the rear, a special Rear Transition Module is available. The new CP3923 is also compliant with the EN 50155 railway standard and offers an extended operating temperature range (E2) of -40° to +85°C. Additionally, the use of soldered components ensures resistance against the typical effects of shock and vibration. For even harsher environments a rugged conduction-cooled version is planned.
