The NETernity™ VXS24 is a fully managed (Layer 2/3) Gigabit Ethernet switch designed to meet the most demanding requirements for network switching in tactical applications. Available in both air- and conduction-cooled formats, and featuring a non-blocking shared memory architecture, the VXS24 provides an 88 Gbits/second core offering full wire speed performance with minimal latency on all ports simultaneously. The VXS24 has 22 ports of 1000 BaseCX to the backplane in accordance with VITA 41.3, plus two SFP ports capable of supporting 100 BaseFX, 1000 BaseSX, 1000 BaseLX or 10/100/1000 BaseTX to the front panel. Each of the 1 Gigabit ports may be configured to allow in-band management. Optionally, a mezzanine capability allows for 10 Gigabit uplink expansion, transitioning from XAUI on the switch packet processor to the appropriate 10G standard at the front panel. The VXS24 can be expanded to a 48-port solution by connecting two VXS24s together via the 10 Gigabit ports. Out-of-band management of the switch is accessible via 10/100 BaseT Ethernet port and RS232 serial port, both available at the front panel. The VXS24 has comprehensive network management capabilities based on FASTPATH® software that include VLANs, link aggregation, spanning tree, IPv4, IPv6, IGMP, traffic policing, Quality of Service (QoS), guaranteed bandwidth and SNMP. Configuration of the switch is via a comprehensive and intuitive web interface, command line interface or SNMP.
