Kontron CP6930 - 6U cPCI/CompactPCI® 26 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

6x 10GbE via SFP+, 2x 1GbE via SFP, 0 to +60°C Operation


The new Kontron CP6930 is a 6U hot-swappable CPCI and VITA 31 switch with 26 GbE ports and 6 high performance uplinks (10 GbE). The CP6930 provides built-in switching capacity for CompactPCI and VITA 31.1 installations at an unsurpassed price/performance ratio by implementing the latest switching technology. It applies to VoIP installations such as Call Servers, MediaGateways and Trunking Gateways in wireline and wireless networks, as well as VoIP systems in enterprise networks with high demands on performance.


The CP6930 is designed for future oriented applications requiring outstanding bandwidth and communication safety. 6 SFP+ front ports running at 10Gb/s full line speed and 2 SFP ports at the front providing 1Gb support gives fl exibility and an intrinsic value for todays investments. The 24 rear ports according PICMG2.16 and VITA31.1 fulfi l the requirement of CompactPCI and VME systems with highest computing performance.


The robust design features including hardware hot swap as well as complete SNMP management support sets the foundation for robust and reliable systems. Built-In test capabilities enable effective switch maintenance.


The CP6930 can be monitored via SNMP, which also allows access to the devices connected to the backplane. A comprehensive command line interface provides easy management and remote confi guration by either serial or network interface. Support for features like IP forwarding & multicast, routing & switching, Quality of Service, VLANs it is an ideal Switch for CompactPCI and VME systems according PICMG2.16 and VITA31.1.
