The Cloudberry AERO CM-1600-LP Series - Fully Rugged 8-Port Managed Airborne Gigabit Ethernet Switch with PTP GMC, TC/SC and Terrapin SCE2 Connectors

The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP series is a fully rugged Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) 8 port (10/100/1000BASE) Gigabit Ethernet switch. The CM-1600-LP offers a built-in high time accuracy GPS receiver (optional) as time base for Grand Master Clock operation, according to the IEEE 1588 standard. The platform is optimized for aircraft and military network systems applications and is available in a number of different versions.

Designed to meet civil aviation and military specifications, the CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP offers advanced, Layer 2 networking capabilities with 8 ports of non-blocking wire-speed 10/100/1000Mbps connectivity, an integrated management processor and a FPGA. The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP Series enables end-nodes to operate with synchronization accuracy better than 20ns across a wide operating temperature range [-40 to +85C] and extreme shock/vibration conditions. The unit provides packet extraction/inspection/insertion capabilities, as well as programmable or data driven discrete outputs, which can be used to control end node devices on or off the network.

This fully rugged version features Terrapin SCE2 connectors in a sealed IP68 (EMC/water proof) aluminum chassis and serves as an ideal solution for connecting IP-enabled embedded devices deployed in harsh environments.

The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP series implements the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to IEEE 1588 Std 2002 (PTPv1) and IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2). With its unique PTP implementation and embedded PTP version translator, the CM-1600-LP Series as a Grand Master Clock (GMC) version allows PTP Slave Clocks of either PTPv1 or PTPv2 to co-exist in the same network.

This fully managed, Layer 2 Gigabit switch provides a powerful set of networking features, including support for IPv4 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.

To enhance reliability, the unit features military temperature grade components, an isolated power supply that protects against voltage surges, spikes and transients and no moving parts

The fully rugged CM-1600-LP version is tested according to RTCA DO-160G and the platform is also designed to comply with MIL-STD 461D, MIL-STD 704E and MIL-STD 810G.
