Embedded Gigabit Ethernet Switches



The Cloudberry MIL CM-5000-VPX Series – Embedded 3U VPX 24-Port Managed Military Grade Gigabit and 10GBE Ethernet Switch with PTP TC/SC

OnTime Networks' CloudberryMIL CM-5000 Series is a high-performance 3U VPX Gigabit Ethernet Switch line for embedded and harsh environment applications. With the CM-5000-MIL, OnTime Networks is able to leverage its extensive industry experience and technology leadership to deliver a rugged VPX switch solution that provides high performance and lower SWaP for military system applications. The CM-5000-MIL is based on the layer 3 switch core with up to 24 Gigabit Ethernet Ports and up to four (4) 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. The unit offers the unique capability for multiple combinations of 10 Gigabit interfaces, such as XAUI, 10GBASE-T and 10GBase-KR.

The CM-5000-MIL Gigabit Ethernet switch line is designed to support advanced network architectures for the defense industry. Supporting an extremely low power and fast boot architecture, the CM-5000-MIL can be used to connect modules within a VPX system, or externally to other systems or sensors. Each port supports legacy 10Mbps and 100Mbps connections, as well as today's gigabit speed 1000Mbps connections. Auto-negotiation ensures that any connected Ethernet device can connect seamlessly to the CM-5000-MIL. All Base-T ports support auto-MDI/MDIX which provides trouble-free connections using both straight-thru as well as cross-over connections. The CM-5000-MIL 3U VPX switch provides an extensive set of networking features and supports familiar industry standards, such as Command Line Interface (CLI) for setup and configuration, as well as SNMP and web management interfaces. Its simplified browser-based user interface is an intuitive management tool, enabling convenient use of the switch's comprehensive feature set for a better optimized network.

The rugged CM-5000-MIL combines the latest networking hardware and software technology into a cost effective building block for all rugged deployed systems. With additional features such as Energy Efficient Ethernet and Precision Time Protocol (IEEE-1588v2/ PTP) support, the CM-5000-MIL enhances the networking capabilities in today's SWaP-sensitive applications. CM-5000-MIL mechanical and electrical design guarantees reliable operation over the full range of rugged application environments.


Cooling Options




The challenge in today's dense packaging design is to provide proper cooling for boards as some designs have virtually zero airflow in many applications. The CM-5000 Series, can be operated in conduction and convection cooled envelopes. The CM-5000 offers single and double sided conduction cooling elements and be also operated under convection cooling. The conduction cooling elements are of aluminum and provide superior thermal performance with excellent temperature uniformity, resulting in lower electronic component temperatures and increased operational life and reliability. With the superior thermal performance and flexibility the CM-5000 Series offers, military embedded system designers reduce system size, weight, and power with improved cooling (SWaP-C), permitting better mobility and extended mission life.

Complete Integrated Software Solution

The CM-5000-MIL is a complete networking solution, with pre-integrated and optimized software that runs on its on-board processor. All software is included for the full suite of Layer 2/3 switching functionality and protocols, along with a comprehensive set of management interfaces to configure and monitor the switch.

OpenVPX Standards Compliant

The CM-5000-MIL is designed to be fully VITA 46/VITA 48/ VITA 65/OpenVPX compliant.
