FULLY RUGGED: Cloudberry AERO CM-1600-LP Series

Product Description

The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP Series - Fully Rugged 8-Port Managed Airborne Gigabit Ethernet Switch with PTP GMC, TC/SC and Terrapin SCE2 Connectors

 The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP series is a fully rugged Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) 8 port (10/100/1000BASE) Gigabit Ethernet switch. The CM-1600-LP offers a built-in high time accuracy GPS receiver (optional) as time base for Grand Master Clock operation, according to the IEEE 1588 standard. The platform is optimized for aircraft and military network systems applications and is available in a number of different versions. Designed to meet civil aviation and military specifications, the CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP offers advanced, Layer 2 networking capabilities with 8 ports of non-blocking wire-speed 10/100/1000Mbps connectivity, an integrated management processor and a FPGA. The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP Series enables end-nodes to operate with synchronization accuracy better than 20ns across a wide operating temperature range [-40 to +85C] and extreme shock/vibration conditions. The unit provides packet extraction/inspection/insertion capabilities, as well as programmable or data driven discrete outputs, which can be used to control end node devices on or off the network. This fully rugged version features Terrapin SCE2 connectors in a sealed IP68 (EMC/water proof) aluminum chassis and serves as an ideal solution for connecting IP-enabled embedded devices deployed in harsh environments. The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP series implements the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to IEEE 1588 Std 2002 (PTPv1) and IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2). With its unique PTP implementation and embedded PTP version translator, the CM-1600-LP Series as a Grand Master Clock (GMC) version allows PTP Slave Clocks of either PTPv1 or PTPv2 to co-exist in the same network. This fully managed, Layer 2 Gigabit switch provides a powerful set of networking features, including support for IPv4 multicast traffic filtering according to static filters or IGMP snooping, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), port control (speed / mode / statistics, flow control), Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization, Link Aggregation (802.3ad), SNMPv/1/v2/v3 management, secure authentication (802.1X, ACLs, Web/CLI), redundancy (RSTP/MSTP) and port mirroring. To enhance reliability, the unit features military temperature grade components, an isolated power supply that protects against voltage surges, spikes and transients and no moving parts The fully rugged CM-1600-LP version is tested according to RTCA DO-160G and the platform is also designed to comply with MIL-STD 461D, MIL-STD 704E and MIL-STD 810G.

Key Features

The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP Series offers switches with and without time synchronization support for in-flight data communication.
Time Distribution The CM-1600-LP Series is available as a reliable and accurate (< 20 nanosecond) PTP Grand Master Clock and Transparent/Slave Clock according to IEEE 1588 Std 2002 (PTPv1) or IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2) standards
The CM-1600-LP Series with PTP Grand Master Clock capability contains a built-in high accuracy GPS receiver.
Interoperability The CM-1600-LP Series supports all relevant IEEE Ethernet standards. Interoperability with other PTP devices is ensured based on extensive testing.
Version Translation The CM-1600-LP Series, with its unique embedded PTP version translator feature, allows Slave Clocks of both PTPv1 and PTPv2 to co-exist in the same network. The need for PTP version translation is driven by the fact that PTPV1 (IEEE 1588 2002) is not backward compatible with PTPv2 (IEEE 1588 2008). Both PTP versions cannot co-exist in the same network unless a PTP version translator is used. OnTime Networks offers a cost efficient solution by introducing a PTP version translation feature into its products which helps to protect your PTPv1 investments. With the embedded PTP version translation you can use your legacy PTPv1 equipment alongside your new PTPv2 equipment without the need to upgrade or change configuration of old PTPv1 equipment.
Management The CM-1600-LP Series offer full management based on HTTP, telnet, CLI or SNMP v1/v2/v3.
Rugged OnTime Networks provides rugged Ethernet solutions to withstand extreme operating conditions, such as temperature, shock and vibration. As a fully rugged version, the CM-1600-LP series is designed for the harsh aircraft and military environment. The platform offers a wide operating temperature range [-40 to +85Cº] with ruggedized military approved connectors. The unit is approved according to RTCA DO 160G, and is also designed for MIL-STD 461D, -704E and -810G.
Version Translation The CM-1600-LP Series offers advanced filtering capabilities. Multicast filters can be set on the switch, based on IGMP snooping or by manual configuration of static filters. Layer 4 filtering can be done based on UDP destination or source port numbers of UDP/IP packets.
IRIG-B The CM-1600-LP Series with Grand Master Clock capability provides GPS emulation (NMEA and PPS), IRIG-B 002 and IRIG-B 122 outputs.
Compliance The CM-1600-LP Series is ready and compliant to current integrated Network Enhanced Telemetry (iNET) standards
VLAN 802.1Q Port based VLAN (static) or dynamic VLAN according to IEEE802.1Q are supported.
Security Security according to IEEE802.1x is supported.
Accuracy Precision timing is critical in networked real-time military applications. Recent advances in Ethernet technology provide standards-based precision timing and synchronization for communications, radar, audio, video and other networked real-time applications. The IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol enhances Ethernet to deliver timing accuracies in the nanosecond range over standard COTS network infrastructure. Sub-microsecond timing and synchronization are critical to many military electronic systems that encode, decode, transport, or present real-time data in applications such as weapons test systems, distributed sensor networks, radar processing, signal intelligence, distributed RF systems, and IP-based multimedia. Synchronization of multiple distributed devices is a major challenge facing today's military systems developers. The CM-1600-LP Series is available as a reliable and accurate (< 20 nanosecond) PTP Grand Master Clock and Transparent/Slave Clock according to IEEE 1588 Std 2002 (PTPv1) or IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2) standards.
Connectors The CM-1600-LP Series is configured with 11 connections. Power input (J11), GPS antenna interface (J10, only on GMC) service port interface (J9) – Terrapin with A-keying and 8 x 10/100/1000BASE-TX Ethernet ports (J1-J8) with N-keying.
