The FP 210/024 is an entry-level 24-port 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet Switch Board for use in a standard VME backplane. It supports up to twelve front panel connections and twelve connections to the rear. It offers high speed, full line rate Layer 2 switching fabric 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. Switch configuration and control is provided via a front panel RS232 port.
It is an excellent choice for a range of applications. Typical applications include networking equipment, voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems and blade-based servers. Options to operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C are available. Ruggedised conduction-cooled and ruggedised air-cooled versions are planned.
