Kontron AM4301 - Quad 1GbE Port RJ-45 Ethernet AdvancedMC Module

Intel 82571EB Gigabit Controller, Virtual LANs 802.3q VLAN tagging


The Kontron AM4301 Quad GbE module is the ideal AdvancedMC unit for network applications that require multiple ports directly from an AdvancedTCA processor blade.

The AM4301 features 4 x 10Base-T/100Base-Tx/1000Base-T ports, each providing dedicated Input/Output (I/O) bandwidth of PCIe x4, x2 and x1 links for maximum performance.

Built with the Intel 82571EB Gigabit Controller, the AM4301 delivers expanded bandwidth for slot-constrained AdvancedTCA systems and, as a hot-swappable, field replaceable unit (FRU), it also follows the same stringent carrier grade RASM feature set, namely - Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Maintainability.

The AM4301 supports remote management via IPMI v1.5, and features a Management Controller that is run-time field reprogrammable without any payload impact.

IPMI Features
• Management Controller compliant to PICMG 3.0, AMC.0 and IPMI v1.5 rev 1.1.
• Management Controller is run time fi eld reprogrammable without payload impact.
• Robust fail safe reprogrammation implementation (which includes two firmware images) that could perform automatic or manual rollback if a problem occurs during critical reprogramation phase.
• Remote upgrade capability from all IPMI interfaces (via IPMB)
• Management Controller self test which can detect failure under its code integrity and trig an automatic rollback.
