ENSEMBLE® 6000 Series SFM6104 Switch Fabric Module OpenVPX 40Gb/s

Product Description

The Ensemble® SFM6104 Switch Module from Mercury Systems applies the latest Ethernet and InfiniBand™ bridging technology from Mellanox (6th generation SwitchX®-2 VPI) and bandwidths of up to 40 Gigabit and a theoretical maximum duplex bandwidth of 2Tb/s are possible, with Mercury’s latest switch fabric module.

Mercury’s latest and most capable 6U OpenVPX switch fabric module (SFM6104) is designed to VITA 65 (OpenVPX), provides comprehensive Layer-2 switching and system management for up to 18 OpenVPX payload slots.
