Fully Managed Industrial Ethernet Switch with Uplink, A-Coded

A Flexible Switch in a Common Modular Format

The G101 is a fully managed 3U flexible multiport Gigabit Switch, with a 29 GBit/s Switch matrix, implemented as a CompactPCI Serial board. It occupies one system slot or one peripheral slot using a 4 HP front panel with two Gigabit Ethernet ports on RJ45 connectors and one 2.5 Gb SFP cage. Alternatively, the G101 can be supplied with three M12 A-coded connectors on the front panel. The new backplane concept for MEN routers and switches allows high flexibility in network applications and management.

High Speed, High Efficiency and Extensive Protocols

The G101 guarantees high speed, high efficiency and an extensive firmware supporting various protocols like security, time synchronicity, stability, as well as for temperature needs. The switch supports EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) as a standard on all ports, IEEE1588v2 on ports 1 to 12 and SyncE (synchronous Ethernet) as an option.

Various Connection Possibilities due to Various Port Options

The G101 either features three Ethernet ports on the front and up to 22 ports on the rear, or alternatively all 25 ports on the rear. These include 12 ports with integrated 10/100/1000 Mbit/s copper PHYs. In addition, the G101 features a high performance port with up to 2.5 Gbit/s for a SFP pluggable module to support a high speed uplink.

Increased Reliability thanks to Built-In Test Mechanisms

The switch is fault tolerant and restores itself on its own: If a link is temporarily unavailable, frames can be sent via backup/redundant links (spanning tree protocol/link aggregation) and no data loss occurs. Its built-in test mechanisms make the G101 an even more reliable component in the communication system.

Rugged and Compliant to Railway Standards

The railway Ethernet switch is specifically designed for rugged mobile communication systems and fully compliant with the EN 50155 railway standard, qualified for a -40 to +85°C operation temperature and ready for coating.
