The FP 100/008 is an entry-level 10-port 10/100Mbps Ethernet Switched Fabric Board for use in CompactPCI® PICMG® 2.16 and VITA 31.1 Packet Switched Backplane environments. It supports up to eight node boards, a front panel Ethernet interface for user interface and a fabric to fabric link.
It offers high speed, non-blocking Layer 2 switching on all Ethernet ports. Quality of Service (QoS) operation is supported with four priority queues and a variety of traffic classes for time-critical and multimedia traffic. Virtual LAN (VLAN) operation is also supported, e.g. layer 2 firewall protection. System monitoring is provided by the PICMG 2.9 compliant IPMI subsystem, supporting the IPMB0 serial management bus. It is an excellent choice for cost sensitive applications or those requiring only a small number of node boards. Typical applications include networking equipment, voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems and blade-based servers.
