Aitech C660 - 6U cPCI/CompactPCI Gigabit Ethernet Switch

24 Gigabit Ethernet Ports, Transition Module Option


Aitech’s C660 is a high-performance 6U CompactPCI Gigabit Ethernet Switch for embedded and harsh environment applications. The C660 is based on the Marvell® Prestera® 98DX4122 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Controller and Marvell’s Routing OS. The C660 includes an embedded web server, providing HTML pages that allow the user to manage the switch. The simplified browser-based user interface is an intuitive management tool, enabling convenient use of the switch's comprehensive feature set for a better optimized network. Command line administration is also supported over network and RS-232 connections.

C660 mechanical and electrical design guarantees reliable operation over the full range of rugged application environments. It is available in industry standard conduction-cooled and air-cooled form factors.
