Spectranetix Introduces Low-Cost Dual Enclave 100G Ethernet Switch Aligned to Army CMOSS and SOSA™ Technical Standard
SUNNYWILE, CA- (BUSINESS WIRE) -Spectranetix, Inc., a Pacific defense company, is proud to announce the SX-153, a rugged 3U OpenVPX ™ high-speed, high-performance system switching solution. With support for dual security enclaves, the SX-153 switch is one of the most flexible switching solutions on the market, capable of supporting 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet speeds and developed in accordance with the US Army’s C5ISR modular open standards package (CMOSS) and the Open System Architecture ™ (SOSA) Open Group Sensor Technical Standard.
Driven by the defense community’s need for a high-performance secure 3U VPX form factor switching solution and aligned with the latest open set of standards, including the SOSA Technical Reference Architecture Standard ™, Edition 1.0, published September 28, 2021 The SX-153 has been developed as a cost-effective and reliable solution. With a design centered around two independent chipsets from a Marvell Layer 2/3 switch, the SX-153 provides six Data Plane grease ports to the back board and two to the front panel, as well as seven ultra-thin Control Plane ports to the back board. and one to the front panel. The four Data Plane ports are configured for 100G Ethernet, one for 40G Ethernet, and the last fat tube is divided into four 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet ports to support the secondary Data Plane architecture in the standard rear CMOSS configuration. All control ports are configured for 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet. The SX-153 is a fully managed switch based on L2 / L3 standards and some L4 network protocols and is complemented by an extensive CLI library for configuration, management, display and troubleshooting. The industry’s first product on the market to support integration with third-party encryption solutions, the SX-153 can be paired with government-provided crypto modules to maintain secure communication between different security enclaves.
“Spectranetix continues to be at the forefront of advanced technology and the market leader in CMOSS products compliant with the SOSA technical standard.” The 100Gb Ethernet switch demonstrates our ability and commitment to bring the next generation of e-war and multifunction communication systems to our fighters, ”said Ken Nelson, vice president of business development at Spectranetix. “Our customers need this technology to maintain their dominance on the battlefield against our opponents.
Spectranetix is the market leader in the development of high-performance CMOSS / SOSA products, including parent-ready mission systems with a robust product suite, including software-defined SX-430 (SDR) radio, SX-330 single board computer (SBC), and SX-310 Digital Signal Processor (DSP) currently in use. The SX-124 Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) and SX-153 Dual Enclave 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet Switch cards will be on the way to serial release early next year.
