MilSource offers Techaya’s MILTECH 24FO as the industry’s most compact fiber-optic enabled Ethernet switch offering 24 fiberoptic GbE ports in an approximate 8” x 4” x 2” footprint. The fully managed switch targets radar installations, EO sensor suites, persistent wide area surveillance, and signal intelligence applications.
According to the manufacturer, next generations avionics and flight control systems will depend on fiber optic networks to deliver real-time data for bandwidth intensive and delay sensitive applications such as for real-time voice, data and video applications. The MILTECH 24FO enables plug-and-play network switching for these next-generation fiber-based networks and devices.
Network features include switching protocols, virtual LANS (VLANS), traffic prioritization (QoS), and bandwidth aggregation. The MILTECH 24FO’s gigabit speeds and 28-Vdc power make it compatible with any network device and power system. Its mechanical packaging, including ruggedized Amphenol SIM 2D 44VG connectors, is designed for MIL-STD-810F airborne and ground environmental compliance and high reliability.
