3U VPX Ethernet Switch

ethernet switch

Amphenol Aerospace has developed a new 3U VPX Ethernet Switch -- the first in a series of ruggedized Ethernet Switches that provide an unmatched level of flexibility to meet any system requirement. The 48-port 3U VPX-managed Ethernet Switch is configurable for system connectivity, speeds, port types, and interoperation with various high-speed media converters and connectors for system interfacing.


The configurability to meet system requirements is achieved through superior product design. For starters, each port is capable of 10G Ethernet -- some ports can either be configured as 10G-Base-T (also supporting 100-Base-T and 1G-Base-T) or 10G-Base-KR (also supporting 1000-Base-X and SGMII). The switching throughput is up to 480 Gbps when using all 48 ports on the switch. In addition, the switch is non-blocking and low-latency for high-throughput architectures and applications. While the backplane is providing the highest densities of port count, the front-panel connections operate with various copper/fiber media converters and high-speed system connectors. Finally, the management software provides a command line interface, SNMP, and other web-based options for configuring the switch. It is capable of a full complement of virtualization, quality of service, security, tunneling, precision-time protocol, and other capabilities.



  • Up to 48 channels of 10 GbE interfaces on a single card. Many of the ports are configurable between 10G-Base-T and 10G-Base-KR. While the ports are all 10G capable, they also work in 100M and 1G modes.
  • Line rate forwarding up to 480 Gbps
  • Configurable for multiple backplane pinouts and profiles
  • Highly managed multi-layer switching services to include multicast, QoS, and security features
  • Precision time protocol (IEEE 1588v1/v2) support
  • VITA 46 3U VPX available in conduction-cooled -40-+85C environments as well as harsh vibration profiles
