FX 210/01x - 1000Mbps (IEEE 802.3) VITA 41.3 Ethernet Switch Board


The FX 210/01x is an entry-level 1000Mbps baseband IEEE 802.3 Switch Board for use in VXS VITA 41.3 Switched Serial Backplane environments. It supports up to eighteen payload boards, an inter-switch port for linking to a second switch, and for user connections, up to four front panel Ethernet interfaces. It offers high speed, full line rate Layer 2 switching fabric on all ports. Quality of Service (QoS) operation is supported with four priority queues and a variety of traffic classes for time-critical and multimedia traffic. Typical applications include networking equipment, voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems, data management and blade-based servers in vertical markets such as defense, communications, medical and automation.
