Cloudberry Aero CM-4000 Series

small form factor rugged Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) 12-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch


The new Cloudberry CM-4012F0-MM-MIL is a small form factor rugged Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) 12-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch specifically designed to reliably provide high-performance connectivity for extremely demanding size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints in the harsh climatically and noisy electrical demanding environments (e.g. high altitude, extreme shock, & vibration, extended temperatures, humidity, dust & water exposure, noisy EMI, dirty power) on land, in the air and on sea. These include land vehicles, aircraft, UAVs and naval vessels.

The CM-4012F0-MM-MIL is an advanced and highly engineered GbE switch that addresses complexity, enables modularity and provides growth, while delivering optimal performance for SWaP constrained military applications onboard vehicles and aircraft platforms.

The very small design with less 2 pounds in weight, a 10 Watts typical power consumption and small MIL circular connectors, makes the unit well suited for low size/weight applications where electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is important.

The unit is designed to meet the environmental requirements of RTCA/DO-160 and MIL-STD 810G as well as the EMI/EMC requirements (Conducted & Radiated Emissions & Susceptibility) of MIL-STD 461F, MIL-STD-704F and 1275E. The extended temperature operation from -40 to +71C, resistance to high shock/vibration, humidity, altitude, and dust/water ingress makes the CM-4012F0-MM-MIL an extremely reliable Local Area Network (LAN) switch solution for retro and forward fit installations.

This fully managed, Layer 2 Gigabit switch provides a powerful set of networking features, including support for IPv4 and IPv6 multicast traffic filtering according to static filters or IGMP snooping, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), port control (speed / mode / statistics, flow control), Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization, Link Aggregation (802.3ad), SNMPv/1/v2/v3 management, secure authentication (802.1X, ACLs, Web/CLI), redundancy (RSTP/MSTP) and port mirroring. The switch also supports Transparent Clock operation according to IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2). Further, the unit also supports Layer 3 IPv4 / IPv6 static routing for attached WAN / radios, Built in Test (BIT), and data zeroization.

Key Features:

Time Distribution: The CM-4012F0-MM-MIL offers IEEE 1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Transparent Clock (TC) capability.

Interoperability: The CM-4012F0-MM-MIL supports all relevant IEEE Ethernet standards.

Version Translation: The CM-4012F0-MM-MIL offers a unique embedded PTP version translator feature, allowing Version translation between PTPv1 and PTPv2, with per port 1588 version control.

Quality of Service: The CM-4012F0-MM-MIL offers advanced traffic shaping and quality of service techniques.

Rugged: The CM-4012F0-MM-MIL is designed for the harsh environmental requirements of the Aerospace and Defense industry and offers a wide operating temperature range (-40 to +71C). Ruggedized military approved connectors are used for both the Ethernet ports and the power connector. The unit is designed to meet RTCA DO 160G, as well as MIL-STD 461D, -704E, -810G and 1275 standards.
