  • NETernity RM980RC and RM982RC 6U VMEbus GbE switches
  • Provide high-performance, high-reliability switching and high port density
  • Suitable for demanding, network-centric applications
  • The RM982RC is a configuration-managed switch featuring GE Intelligent Platforms OpenWare Lite management software that allows the switch to be monitored and/or controlled either locally or remotely
  • Management features include support for VLANs, MSTP, trunking, mirroring, and limited SNMP
  • Can be configured with either 24 copper rear GbE I/O ports or 22 copper rear I/O ports plus two fiber or copper ports routed to the front panel
  • The unmanaged RM980RC provides a lower-cost option for customers not requiring a managed switch and is available in three configurations
  • The entry level RM980RC unit supports 12 GbE ports routed to rear I/O
  • Alternatively, a 24-port version and 22-port version of RM980RC are available, the latter with two further copper ports with RJ45 connectors routed through the front panel
  • Both the RM980RC and RM982RC are RoHS-compliant, and are capable of Layer 2 switching and routing at wire speed
  • 12-, 22-, and 24-port rear transition modules available
  • Each switch board on RM980RC occupies only a single chassis slot (the 22- and 24-port rear transition modules require two slots) providing maximum port density per slot, and each is able to facilitate communications both within a chassis as well as supporting the external network
  • Configuration and monitoring functions are accessible from a serial console or via a network
  • Supported access methods include Telnet, SSH, and SNMP
  • OpenWare Lite is easy to deploy and is Linux-based, allowing faster implementation and easy updates to firmware
