  • Albuquerque, NM (February 6, 2007) ─ GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, a leading provider of embedded military and commercial solutions, expands their already extensive line of network products with the introduction of the rugged RES-110 Layer 2 and 3 managed Ethernet switch. The RES-110 is an outstanding modular package optimized to meet customers’ most challenging performance and thermal requirements in the harsh environments typically encountered in military environments or extreme commercial applications. This rugged switch provides Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for deployment in harsh tactical combat environments. The RES-110 features an innovative wiring harness that reduces wiring weight, volume and complexity, making it ideal for integration into ground and airborne vehicles and other rugged Ethernet applications. Compliant with the MIL-STD-810E specification, the RES-110 is designed to operate under high temperature, shock and vibration conditions. “The RES-110 is another piece in our distributed architecture design for military and commercial applications. Based on our proven CP3 switch, the RES-110 is a rugged COTS Ethernet switch that can be deployed very quickly in a distributed network, especially when used with our Remote Interface Unit,” said Dave Wessing, GE Fanuc Global Director of Defense/Aerospace Products. “Because the RES-110 weighs less than two pounds and is compact in size, it helps reduce overall system weight and is ideal for onboard Ethernet connectivity in aircraft and ground vehicles.” The RES-110 rugged Ethernet switch is a standalone switch that requires no host CPU intervention. Switch management can be performed through a serial RS-232 interface The switch also allows administrators to easily configure features and monitor performance using its in-band Ethernet interface for Telnet or HTTP and SNMP-based network management with a standard Web browser. The RES-110 is available for ordering now. Click to read more about the RES-110.
