DALLAS, Texas. OnTime Networks, company specializing in rugged, time-synchronized Ethernet solutions for the Aerospace and Defense Industry, announced the selection of its military rated CM-4012F0-MIL 12 Port Gigabit Ethernet switch by General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada for use in the Canadian Army's Armoured Combat Support Vehicle (ACSV).

OnTime Networks was awarded a multi-year production order for the supply of the CM-4012F0-MIL to General Dynamics. 

The CM-4012F0-MIL is a rugged managed gigabit Ethernet switch specially designed to operate reliably in the harsh climatically and noisy electrical demanding environments of ground combat vehicle applications.

According to the company, the newly enhanced Cloudberry CM-4012F0 12-port Layer2+ GbE switch is designed to provide dual power input capability. This latest addition to the CM-4000 Series, aims to combine the requirement for small size, weight, power consumption, and cost optimization. 

The company claims that the CM-4012F0 is also available in MIL and AER versions addressing the varying requirements of ground vehicle and airborne applications.
