MEN G101

The G101 is a managed 3U flexible multiport Gigabit Switch, with a 29 GBit/s Switch matrix, implemented as a CompactPCI® Serial board. It occupies one system slot or one peripheral slot using a 4 HP front panel with two Gigabit Ethernet ports on RJ45 connectors and one 2.5 Gb SFP cage. Alternatively, the G101 can be supplied with three M12 A-coded connectors on the front panel (for X-coded connectors, see the G102).

The G101 guarantees high speed, high efficiency and a large software pool for various protocols like security, time synchronicity, stability, as well as for temperature needs. The switch supports EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) as a standard on all ports, IEEE1588v2 on ports 1 to 12 and SyncE (synchronous Ethernet) as an option. Together with the new backplane concept for MEN switches and routers, it allows high flexibility in network applications and management.

The G101 either features three Ethernet ports on the front and up to 22 ports on the rear, or alternatively all 25 ports on the rear. These include 12 ports with integrated 10/100/1000 Mbit/s copper PHYs. In addition, the G101 features a high-performance port with up to 2.5 Gbit/s for an SFP pluggable module to support a high-speed uplink.

The switch is fault-tolerant and restores itself on its own: If a link is temporarily unavailable, frames can be sent via backup/redundant links (spanning tree protocol/link aggregation) and no data loss occurs. Its built-in test mechanisms make the G101 an even more reliable component in the communication system.

The railway Ethernet switch is specifically designed for rugged mobile communication systems and fully compliant with the EN 50155 railway standard, qualified for a -40 to +85°C operation temperature and ready for coating.
