The G102 is a fully 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 G102 can be supplied with three M12 X-coded connectors on the front panel (for A-coded connectors, see the G101). The new backplane concept for MEN routers and switches allows high flexibility in network applications and management.
HIGH SPEED, HIGH EFFICIENCY AND EXTENSIVE PROTOCOLS
The G102 guarantees high speed, high efficiency and an extensive firmware supporting 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.
VARIOUS CONNECTION POSSIBILITIES DUE TO VARIOUS PORT OPTIONS
The G102 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 G102 features a high-performance port with up to 2.5 Gbit/s for an SFP pluggable module to support a high-speed uplink.
INCREASED RELIABILITY THROUGH BUILT-IN TEST MECHANISMS
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 G102 an even more reliable component in the communication system.
RUGGED AND COMPLIANT TO RAILWAY STANDARDS
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.
