AB10GR: Ruggedized 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch
The Aeronix Gigabit Ethernet Router (GER) AB10GR provides twenty 10/100/1000 and three 10G Ethernet ports for use in commercial, industrial, and military applications that require ultra-high data transfer rates in a self-contained ruggedized package. The rugged design requires no forced air or conductive cooling, and has autonomous heating elements for low temperatures, allowing operation in a broad range of harsh environments including operation in uninhabited aircraft bays.
All of the AB10GR’s 23 ports can be configured with all with Layer 2 and Layer 3 capabilities. Functions like Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) prevent looping and provide more efficient communication using cheapest cost routes and route recovery in case of link failure. VLANs and QOS allow targeted data to flow on specific routes or with higher priority. Other functions like IPSEC, RIP and OSPF can be utilized to add security to packets, and dynamic routing for more efficient communication using least cost routes. Firewalls can be set up to block traffic of specific types on specific ports.
Each of the twenty IEEE 802.3ab ports can individually auto-detect data rates of 10, 100, or 1000 BASE-T, or can be managed externally. The three 10GBASE-T 802.3an can be connected on full-duplex point-to-point links for blazing fast throughput. Incorporating the Aeronix AB10GR into your design allows the use of high-speed Ethernet connectivity between any or all of your devices while virtually eliminating data-rate bottlenecks.
