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. The FP 100/008 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.
