OnTime Networks introduces new gigabit Ethernet switch/power board solution

OnTime Networks said it has expanded its military-grade gigabit Ethernet switch portfolio with the new CloudberryMIL CM-4012FX-SW switch/power board solution.

The new solution is designed to comply to RTCA-D0-160G and MIL- STD461F/1275E, and features low power consumption of 10W and highly reliable extended-temperature operation up to +71 degrees C.

The unit can be optionally equipped with a 40 pin connector to add four additional ports, expanding the port count to 16 ports. These additional 4 ports can be either SGMII, fiber or copper ports if PHYs are added to the front end board.

Markus Schmitz, Managing Director of OnTime Networks in the US added, “The CM-4012FX-SW switch/power board is loaded with all required firmware, enabling its immediate operation without any development effort. The included web interface provides an intuitive GUI for use in configuring and managing switch functionality.” He continued, “Input power can be provided through the built-in, wide-range +16-32VDC power supply, enabling operation using common Aerospace and Defense power sources. Further, in support of information assurance requirements, the card also provides support for a ´zerodization´ which allows to declassify the product and erase configuration information.”

OnTime Networks is a technology leader for rugged, time synchronized, fully managed, modular gigabit Ethernet switches, specifically designed to operate reliably in the harsh and climatically demanding environments of the Aerospace and Defense Industry.
