The VPX3-652 3U OpenVPX Ethernet Switch is a fully-featured Layer-2 managed switch designed to support advanced network architectures for the defense industry.

The VPX3-652 Ethernet Switch provides up to 20 ports of copper Ethernet connectivity. Models are available with 16 ports of tri-speed 1000Base-T backplane connections, or with 12 ports of 1000Base-T plus an additional 8 ports of 1000Base-X (SerDes) connections for mixed Base-T/Base-X environments. An additional 1000Base-T port is available on the front panel for air-cooled modules.

All Base-T ports feature auto-negotiation and auto-MDI/MDIX to ensure trouble-free interfacing. Base-X (SerDes) ports are typically used for board-to-board interconnects within a system, or can interface directly to optical transceivers for external fiber connectivity.

Part of an extensive line of Ethernet Switches and Routers from Curtiss-Wright, the VPX3-652 3U VPX Ethernet Switch supports an extensive set of Layer 2 switching features. Its flexible management interfaces, including a powerful command line interface (CLI) for setup and configuration, as well as SNMP and Web management interfaces, accelerate development time to market and simplify maintenance support. In addition, special features like Built-In Test (BIT) make the VPX3-652 ideal for building tactical deployed networks.
