GE NETernity GBX460 Fully Managed OpenVPX 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch

GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the NETernity GBX460, which is a fully managed data plane switch module. The managed GBX460 features OpenWare switch management capability, Layer 2/3 switching and routing, including support for IPv6 addressing; extensive management for configuration and protocol options; and the ability to customize the software to meet specific application requirements. OpenWare supports high throughput interprocessor communication (IPC) between 10GigE-enabled processing nodes. The NETernity GBX460 is ideal for high performance computing (HPC) and networking applications (communications, ISR and radar).
