A Flexible Switch in a Common Modular Format
The G101 is a fully managed 3U flexible multiport Gigabit Switch, with a 29 GBit/s Switch matrix, implemented as a CompactPCI Serial board. It occupies one system slot or one peripheral slot using a 4 HP front panel with two Gigabit Ethernet ports on RJ45 connectors and one 2.5 Gb SFP cage. Alternatively, the G101 can be supplied with three M12 A-coded connectors on the front panel. The new backplane concept for MEN routers and switches allows high flexibility in network applications and management.
