Gigabit Ethernet Switch
As 1553 bandwidth in aircraft is consumed by multi function displays, moving maps, and multiple full rate video feeds, system integrators are looking for aircraft qualified, Gigabit Ethernet solutions which operate in severe environments without the need for forced air cooling.
The Aeronix Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GES) with its rugged, monolithic design is proven for use in harsh commercial, industrial, and military environments which enables system integrators to focus on what to do with all of the data instead of how to move it around.
The GES is a 12 port Gigabit Ethernet switch which has been designed specifically for integration into aircraft where weight, size, and power are all of the highest priority. At less than 3 pounds and with dimensions of 8.25” x 5.1” x 1.38”, the GES is very compact which allows it to fit into spaces previously unusable for rugged, gigabit class switches. With an average power consumption of 16 watts with all 12 ports active, the GES is very low power which allows for ambient air cooling. Meeting MIL-STD-704A power specifications and shock/vibration qualification to aircraft gun fire levels, the GES will operate through the worst that your application can dish out.
The small footprint of the GES is not at the cost of functionality. At the heart of the GES is a fully manageable switch fabric which includes support for VLAN’s, QoS, Link Aggregation, IPv6, and Ingress/Egress monitoring.
The GES contains an in-band, management processor which will allow custom management functions as required by the integrator. A serial port is also available in the form of an Ethernet to serial bridge which allows control of legacy equipment from anywhere in the network.
