3U VPX 22 Port 1/10/40GbE Layer 2+/3 Switch

3U VPX 1/10/40GbE Layer 2+/3 switch with up to 22 ports. Powered by the latest highly integrated Marvell System Chip (SoC) with programmable packet processors and controlled by Switchware, Interface Concept's field-proven network management application, the ComEth4081e series provides up to two 40Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to 22 10Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The ComEth4081e also supports VPX System Management in compliance with VITA 46.11 and based on the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI v1.5) for sensor management (temperature, voltage, current), inventory management, system configuration, recovery and diagnostic management. Interface Concepts Switchware supports a wide range of Layer 2/3 functions that can be managed via an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI), command line interface (CLI) or SNMP (v2c or v3).

The ComEth4081e series is available for five different environmental specifications: Standard operating temperature range (0°C .. 55°C), extended operating temperature range (-20°C .. +65°C), rugged operating temperature range (-40°C .. +75/85°C), conduction-cooled (-40°C .. +71°C) and conduction-cooled (-40°C .. +85°C).
