100G Ethernet Switch for 3U VPX™ Systems
Developed in Alignment with the SOSA™ Technical Standard

The versatile, high-performance VPX3-6816 Ethernet switch provides rugged Ethernet switching for both legacy and next-generation 3U systems. It supports a wide range of OpenVPX™ profiles, with some variants developed in alignment with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard to assure interoperability with today’s latest VPX systems.

Offering performance without compromises, the VPX3-6816 provides non-blocking line-rate Ethernet switching in a single switch for low power consumption.

Validated for deployment in the harshest environments, the VPX3-6816 is available in conduction-cooled L300 ruggedization with 2LM covers and is suitable for high-reliability embedded ground, naval, airborne, and commercial/industrial applications.
