ComEth 4345a – 6U VPX 24 GigE, 4x10GigE Eth

24 GigE & 10 GigE Eth Switch
6U OpenVPX L3+ IP Router


The ComEth4345a is built on highly integrated Gigabit switch engine and PHY transceivers. Its matrix combines in a single equipment a full layer 3 router with an optimised power consumption.

The ComEth4345a supports full-wire speed L2 bridging and L3 Unicast and Multicast routing with L2-L4 advanced traffic classification, filtering and prioritisation.

The ComEth4345a design allows to create a ring where several ComEth43xx (up to 15) are connected to form a unified switching architecture. A rapid failover algorithm authorises an healing delay of less than 20ms (on 10G ports).
