The MILTECH 918 is a MIL-STD, fully managed military grade Layer 2 Ethernet switch with advanced Layer 3 static routing capabilities. It can be remotely managed to deliver Layer 2 switching to optimize on-vehicle communications traffic prioritization between IP-based devices such as communication and navigation systems, sensors, video cameras and targeting systems. Layer 3 static routing enables on-device IPv4 and IPv6 static routing between VLANs without having to add a router upstream. This further reduces the amount of equipment, weight, and expenditures on mobile military platforms.
Advanced network features, never before found in a package of this size, include switching protocols, virtual LANS (VLANS), traffic prioritization (QoS), and bandwidth aggregation are standard. The MILTECH918’s gigabit speeds and 24VDC power make it instantly compatible with any network device and power systems. Its mechanical packaging enhancements, including ruggedized SCE2 circular connectors, is designed for MIL-STD-810F airborne and ground environmental compliance and high reliability. Leveraging best-in-class
switching technology from Techaya, the MILTECH 918 serves as a robust commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for rugged LAN connectivity.
