Gigabit Ethernet Switch: Ground Vehicle (GES-GV8M)

The Aeronix Gigabit Ethernet Ground Vehicle (GES-GV8M) is a new version in the product line targeted at ground vehicles. The GV8M with its rugged, monolithic design is proven for use in harsh military, commercial, and industrial environments. The GV8M is a 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet switch designed for integration into ground vehilces where size, weight, and power are all of the highest priority.  With dimensions of 11” x 6” x 3”, weighing 4.5 lbs, the GV8M is very compact for a switch requiring individual connectos.  On average, the switch consumes only 14 watts at 28 VDC with all 8 ports active at Gigabit speeds.The GES-GV8M has undergone extensive qualifications for use in ground vehicles.  The qualification standards include MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-810, and MIL-STD-461.  At a TRL-9 and ~400 installed units, the GV8M is a mature product with proven reliability with plans to remain in production beyond 2025. The GV8M is based on the widely fielded GES GEN2  with more network connectivity, vehicular qualifications, and extensive user interfacing. This switch utilizes the same switching fabric as the GES GEN2 with increased processing power necessary to perform additional functionality.  This includes an In Band Secure Shell (SSH), HTTPS GU, SNMP V2/3 MIBs, Quality of Service, Port States, & BPDU handling for Spanning Tree Protocol,  Dynamic Host Configuration  client, and IGMP Snooping. The GV8M provides 8 Tri-speed 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet ports. Each of the 8 ports can individually auto-detect data rates of 10, 100, or 1000 Base -T, or can be manually managed externally. The 8 ports have individual connectors and LED indicators that can be turned off for low visibility applications. A Dedicated serial management port is provided along with an band access. Operating temperature range is–32C to +60C and MTBF is in excess of 100,000 hours. For more product information and to download a data sheet click here.

New Common Form Factor/Pin for Pin Compatible Products:

The GES GV8R upgrades to a more powerful switching fabric to support layer 3 functions with minimal impact on overall power consumption. The GV8R maintains the same mounting footprint and is pin for pin compatible with the GV8M and GV8. It expands on the GV8M functionality by adding Link Aggregation,  Layer 2 Tunneling,Stateful Firewall, Intrusion Detection Prevention, Network Address Translation, IPSEC, OSPF, RIP, and IPv6 IP Routing.
