Ensure Seamless, Trusted Network Communications

Our highly engineered networking cards provide systems integrators with a fast and powerful way to interconnect chassis, cards, and CPUs through switched Gigabit, 10 Gigabit, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet. Operating at wire-speed, Ethernet switching and routing can be used to architect the infrastructure for unified (Ethernet only) or hybrid (Ethernet control and other switched data-plane fabric) networks for transferring IP-based control and data packets within advanced military systems.

VPX Switches & Routers
Designed for the current generation of VPX systems, these 3U and 6U OpenVPX cards offer wire-speed Gigabit Ethernet and 10G Ethernet connectivity for intra-platform switching and secure WAN routing.
VME & Mezzanine Switches & Routers
Modernize VME systems with high-performance switches/routers and add SWaP-optimized Mezzanine networking capabilities without occupying an extra slot.
PC104 Switches
Ensure seamless network communications in size, weight, and power (SWaP)-sensitive embedded military and civilian computer network systems applications.
