MEN Mikro's GE1 is a 3U Gigabit Ethernet line card, with optional PoE support, implemented as a CompactPCI Serial board. It occupies one peripheral slot using a 4 HP front panel with four Gigabit Ethernet ports on RJ45 connectors. Alternatively, the GE1 can be supplied with four M12 connectors on the front panel (X-coded variants in preparation)

Note: This is a line card, not a peripheral card (i.e. connects to Ethernet interfaces on CompactPCI® Serial backplane, specifically P6) - refer to block diagram for clarification.
