VPX6-6802 Ethernet/InfiniBand Switch

The VPX6-6802 is a combined Data Plane and Control Plane high-performance switch for small, mid-size and large 6U VPX systems. As part of the Curtiss-Wright Fabric40™ family of high-speed VPX modules, the VPX6-6802 6U OpenVPX Ethernet & InfiniBand Switch provides centralized switching functionality for HPEC systems and supports both Ethernet and InfiniBand protocols on the Data Plane. The VPX6-6802 6U OpenVPX Ethernet & InfiniBand Switch supports full bandwidth, low latency Data Plane interconnects, eliminating the board-to-board data bottlenecks of previous generation systems. The VPX6-6802 Switch also includes an independent Control Plane Ethernet fabric, providing for 1G and 10G Control Plane interconnects. All this is available in a single VPX switch slot (16U20F and 20U19F switch slot profiles supported).

The VPX6-6802 Data Plane fabric supports both Ethernet and InfiniBand protocols. Multiple port speeds are supported, including 10 Gbps, 20 Gbps and 40 Gbps. Up to 20 ports connect to the backplane, with an additional 10/20/40G fabric port and a 1000Base-T Ethernet port available on the front panel (AC only).

The VPX6-6802 6U OpenVPX Ethernet & InfiniBand Switch also supports an independent Control Plane fabric with Gigabit Ethernet links, with up to 22 ports to the backplane, and an additional 1000Base-T port to the front panel. Two 10 GbE (XAUI) ports are also provide on the front panel for switch expansion or control plane backbone connections. A full line-rate non-blocking architecture, combined with a managed Layer-2 Control Plane feature set, ensures maximum performance and flexibility.
