Abaco Systems’ innovative SWE540 6U OpenVPX 40 Gigabit Ethernet Switch provides high speed connectivity for Abaco’s mission ready high performance computing solutions such as the SBC627 single board computer and the DSP282 digital signal processor. This enables the company to deliver significant performance upgrades for its growing range of rapidly-deployable, complete, pre-integrated mission ready systems. These solutions target high performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications requiring the transfer of large amounts of data with the lowest possible latency such as radar, surveillance, situational awareness and imaging.

The SWE540 represents the only 6U OpenVPX 40GigE switch currently available that supports fully managed Layer 2/3 features including hardware Layer 3 forwarding at fabric speed rates. Layer 3 switching and routing is a critical requirement for advanced security and complex networks. It provides dynamic routing over standard routing protocols, enabling a flexible range of network/fabric configurations and applications.

Designed for deployment in security-sensitive mission critical applications, SWE540 features include denial of service attack prevention, user password mechanisms with multiple levels of security and military level authorization schemes including 802.1X and sanitization to allow the overwrite of non-volatile storage. Survivability is also enhanced by ECC protection on the management processor memory.
