Monday, 11 May, 2009 | Supplied by: Metromatics Pty Ltd



GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has announced the NETernity RM983RC VME ethernet switch. Designed for demanding network switching applications in industrial, government, telecommunications and defence applications, the 6U form factor RM983RC switch provides support for 12 or 24 gigabit ethernet ports. It ships with GE Fanuc’s OpenWare Lite switch management environment, providing customers with the flexibility to manage configuration of the RM983RC from a serial console or via the network.

Capable of Layer-2 switching at wire speed, the RM983RC’s 12 or 24 ports are routed to front panel I/O and can be 10/100/1000BaseT, 1000BaseSX or 1000BaseLX. Mixing and matching of fibre and copper media in groups of four are supported. The front panel I/O routing of the RM983RC extends the capability of the NETernity 6U VME product family by offering designers a choice of I/O routing; the NETernity RM982RC features rear I/O.

OpenWare Lite, which is available on selected NETernity switches, is designed to be easy to deploy. Linux based, the software allows faster implementation and easy updates to firmware. A familiar Linux command line interface and remote telnet user interface support allows users to select how they interact with the switch. Management features include support for VLANs, MSTP, trunking, mirroring and limited SNMP.
