ComEth 4410a – 3U OpenVPX 10 GigE (control plane) 6PCIe x 4 ports (data plane)

3U OpenVPX Fabric Switch
PCI Express Data Plane & Eth Control Plane

Standard, Extended & Conduction Cooled grades


The ComEth 4410a provides the OpenVPX hybrid switch market with all its experience regarding managed Ethernet switches.
Built on the same architecture as the ComEth 40xx family, for the control plan, the Ethernet switch supports full-wire speed L2 bridging and L3 routing with L2-L4 advanced traffic classification, filtering and prioritisation. The ComEth 4410a is managed by our tried and tested Switchware, regularly enriched with new functionalities.

For the data plan, the ComEth 4410a implements a modular PCI Express Gen2 switch, delivering up to 32GBps of switching capacity and ensuring very low latency thanks to its cut-through architecture. This switch supports multiple simultaneous peer-to-peer traffic flows in high demanding applications.

Each port can be configured as the upstream switch port; Non-Transparent bridging (NTB mode) feature allows to support multiple NT endpoints (for external PCIe domains or CPUs). Moreover, it is possible to split the switch in independent partitions.

Incorporating a micro-controller dedicated to the management plan (VITA 46.11), the ComEth 4410a represents the most modular and powerful OpenVPX 3U fabric switch solution.
