NH30 - Rugged Fully Managed 29 Gbit/s Ethernet Switch (Produkt eingestellt)

The NH30 is a modular turn-key network switch with carrier grade Layer 2 and Layer 3 VLAN routing capabilities with a seamless throughput of 29 Gbit/s. It is designed for use in trains, trams or industrial environments.

Flexible Built-to-Order I/O Configuration

The high-performance switch device is a modular 4U, 40 HP CompactPCI Serial system. Its build-to-order concept offers a wide range of configuration options, resulting in low NRE costs and fast time-to-market. The main switch board occupies one slot, while six option boards configure front-panel connectivity. This concept allows the NH30 to come with M12 A-coded (X-coded variants in preparation), RJ45 and SFP interfaces in mixed fiber/copper configurations. It supports a total of 25 ports. Using high-speed SFP interfaces ensures robustness against any type of interference signal or other conducted emissions like bursts or flashes. This makes the switch suitable for uplink scenarios or backbone solutions in harsh environments.

Standard Protocols and Various Power Supply Options

As an option all copper-based port line cards can act as PoE+ (PoE class 4) power supplies with a maximum of 60 W per card. The NH30 supports IEEE1588v2 and SyncE (as future extension) timing protocols and EEE as a standard on all ports. Two PSU slots, each with its own power source, ensure reliability and redundancy. Single or redundant AC or DC power supplies can be implemented. This hardens the system against power fluctuations or power failures.

External Monitoring with an Optional Shelf Controller

A shelf controller rounds out the switch's self-control and self-monitoring capabilities. It manages life-time information about the shelf fans, power supplies and can be used for manual shutdown. For security and monitoring purposes, the shelf controller data is available via network interfaces and CLI.

Mounting and Cooling Options

The NH30 switch can be wall or rack-mounted and is cooled by natural convection or, when no PoE supply is necessary, using an additional fan tray at the bottom of the system. Cooling is independent of the mounting position.
