CP921RC-30x 6U


  • NETernity CP921RC-30x 6U CompactPCI 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch
  • Designed for challenging applications in telecommunications, industrial, and military systems
  • Fully managed Layer 2/3+ switch with support for ?future-proof' IPv6 switching and routing
  • Important new functionality is included in the form of Failover Groups (FOG), a feature that is part of GE's OpenWare? switch management environment
  • Responding to the need for very high availability networks, FOG is designed to support redundancy at different levels ? redundant links across backplanes from nodes to switches, redundant switches, and redundant links to external networks
  • This provides fast, application-independent, failover capabilities, suitable for a wide range of network configurations, from the simple to the very complex
  • This unique combination of innovative hardware and software technologies delivers leading edge functionality, flexibility, and availability
  • The CP921RC-30x is optionally available with two front panel 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and two Gigabit Ethernet ports capable of supporting SFP+ and SFP transceivers (which can be copper or fiber) respectively for greater configuration flexibility
  • These ports are invaluable for very high external bandwidth traffic aggregation environments
  • The OpenWare software environment, designed specifically for the NETernity range of switches, provides a substantially improved user experience for application development and support
  • Additional functionality or customization can be simply incorporated within OpenWare according to customer requirements
  • The OpenWare switch management environment provides a full and robust set of configuration and management functions including VLANs, Quality of Service, Link Aggregation, SNMP, MSTP, Multicast and so on: these can be implemented via a serial console, Telnet, or the Web
  • PICMG 2.16- and RoHS compliant, the CP921RC-30x Ethernet switch supports high-availability hot swap as well as IPMI v1.5 to further improve availability, maintainability and manageability
  • As well as supporting Layer-2/3+ switching, it can support Layer 4-7 switching when required
  • A variety of rear transition boards is available to provide rear I/O configuration flexibility beyond the flexibility delivered by the CP921RC's optional front panel ports
  • The CP921RC-30x is also available in an extended temperature variant for demanding industrial applications
