CompactPCI 24 Port Gigabit Switch Now with Layer 3 Support for PICMG 2.16

10/7/2002 - RAMiX announces first shipment of the CP920: an industry first for 24 port CPCI Gigabit Ethernet Switching with Layer 3 support based on the PICMG 2.16 specification. This is the first solution of its kind for applications looking to route packets at wire speed rates of 1000 Mbps with minimal latency.

The CP920 is a 24-port all-Gigabit, fully managed solution for high availability PICMG 2.16 systems. All 24 ports of the 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet are routed to the rear I/O: each of the ports being a switched port. As an option, up to 1 Gigabyte of Flash memory is available for including custom management software developed by the customer.

The CP920 is a high level solution with fully managed capability via serial console, SNMP, Telnet or a Web Server interface. The management software capabilities include: QoS on Layers 2/3 and 802.1p tag; Packet filtering, Link Aggregation, 802.3ad, 802.1Q VLAN standard, Rapid Spanning Tree, Broadcast Storm Control and Port Mirroring. Further to RAMiX’s initial Layer 2 Gigabit Switch [the CP924], the advanced processor implemented on the CP920 now offers ToS/DiffServ, rate limiting, policing, priority tagging and remapping.

The CP920 is compliant to the system level bus specification PICMG 2.9. The IPMI Bus Management is used for system level control and monitoring often required for highly reliable systems.

The CP920 is available in pre-production units now with general availability scheduled for the end of October.
