Klas Telecom releases new rugged GbE switch

Klas Telecom has announced the release of a new hardware module added to the Voyager deployable communications product suite, the VoyagerSW26G, the company said.

VoyagerSW26G is a rugged 26-port switch based on Cisco´s new Embedded Services Switch (ESS) 3300 with added features that make it ideal for tactical users in the public safety, government and military markets. VoyagerSW26G is specifically designed for markets where low size, weight and power (SWaP) are required and is packaged in a chassis that meets military standard for ruggedization.

VoyagerSW26G provides two 10 Gb uplink SFP+ ports and twenty-four 1 GbE ports, eight of which are PoE enabled. With VoyagerSW26G, users in the field are empowered with the speed and performance of enterprise networking.
