Product Change Notice - GLX4000

The Curtiss-Wright GLX4000 Physical Layer Switch accepts up to three modular port cards with 48 ports per card, making them scalable. Both non-retimed and retimed port card versions are available with small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers.

GLX4000 Layer 1 switches come with hot-swappable power supplies, fans and port cards so users can quickly add and replace parts without affecting system up-time. The GLX4000 LINUX operating system, controlling firmware, and nonvolatile port configuration data reside on the module. While it can be removed for security reasons, the Compact Flash module acts as the unit's disk drive for the controller's CPU.

The GLX4000 Physical Layer Switch is ideal for media conversion switching, electronic patch panel and test lab automation applications. The switch automates tests and reduces errors. It facilitates remote changing of topologies and runs scripts to reduce wiring and configuration issues.

By enabling connections and sharing of valuable resources, such as analyzers, sniffers and data recorders, the GLX4000 enables customers to save money. It offers media conversion capabilities, bringing in signals over copper and converting them to optical outputs.

The GLX4000 saves you the time of wiring only once, allowing you to connect all of your devices under test and make topology changes via the user interface.

The LXplorer software available with the GLX4000 greatly simplifies configuration management. The software enables you to save and restore configurations on-the-fly and allows real-time monitoring of the unit's chassis and port cards.
