Enabling the vision of net-centric operations and extending the reach of transformational networks, the VPX3-683 Fireblade is a GbE multi-layer switch that is ideally suited for building Intra-Platform Networks (IPNs) for air, land, and sea vehicles or ground stations. VPX3-683 VPX Ethernet Switch enables fast, reliable forwarding (switching and routing) of control and data packets with up to 24 wire-speed 10/100/1000Mbps interfaces and up to two 10Gbps uplinks that can be used to connect multiple chassis, cards, or even processors within platform networks.

Using star, dual star, mesh and hybrid network topologies, the VPX3-683 3U VPX Gigabit Ethernet Switch provides a flexible cost effective solution that can be used to architect reliable 1 or 10GbE communications infrastructure for current and future networked platforms. Redundancy and fail-over can be implemented using dual star and mesh networks while investment dollars can be retained by implementing hybrid network topologies that coexist with legacy and/or next generation interconnection strategies. Ready to deploy, the VPX3-683 Fireblade allows systems integrators to reduce development costs and time-to-market by simply plugging the VPX3-683 Fireblade into their 3U VPX chassis, connecting the appropriate Ethernet ports, and focusing on the optimal partitioning and segmentation of their application's network.
