WILDSTAR 100GbE 3E20 3U OpenVPX Switch – WP3E20

WILDSTAR 100GbE 3E20 3U OpenVPX Switch is a rugged 3U board that provides switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 100Gb Ethernet and features high density VITA 91 backplane connectors that double the available density to up to 128 diff pairs of Ethernet.

It also has front panel I/O which can be used to connect the system to external data sources. Separate data and control plane switches and two Zynq UltraScale+ processors support encrypted secure communication.

Need SOSA-aligned 100Gb Ethernet switching? See WP3E10.

This next-generation 3U Switch features up to fourteen 40/100Gb and twenty-four 1/10/25Gb or six 40/100Gb Ethernet ports.

The Data Plane Switch supports 10/25/40/100Gb Ethernet to backplane, and 1/10/25/40/50/100GbE to optical interfaces. The Control Plane Switch uses a quad Core ARM-7 processor and supports 1/10/25GbE to the backplane, and 1/10/25/40/50/100GbE to optical interfaces.

The rugged board is available in industrial temperature grades, via air, conduction or air-flow-through (AFT) cooling.

It is VITA 65-compliant, and aligns with CMOSS.
