Designed for use in trains, mass transit or industrial environments, MEN Micro's robust NH30 29-Gigabit Ethernet switch offers carrier grade Layer 2 and Layer 3 VLAN routing capabilities.

NH30 - Rugged Half 19" Modular Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch

BLUE BELL, Pa. March 2015 – The pre-configured CompactPCI Serial NH30, which comes in a half 19-inch format, is an additional member of the modular, built-to-order system family from MEN Micro. Redundant power supplies, PoE+ support and self-monitoring make the switch a reliable, flexible long-term solution.

Flexible Configuration and Safe Power Supplies

Based on MEN Micro’s functional, built-to-order concept, this high-performance Ethernet switch provides a wide range of configuration options for use in several harsh and mobile applications. The switch’s simple system integration and elimination of expensive specialized software ensures a fast time-to-market, while reducing acquisition, operating and maintenance costs.

The NH30 supports a total of 25 ports at the front. The system can be configured with up to six line cards as either active or passive copper connections or as SFP interfaces. In addition, the ports have PoE+ to enable the connection of different devices, such as a camera with a maximum of 60 W.
Pre-installed carrier-grade, managed firmware from Vitesse supports almost all popular protocols on the market, including standard ring and protection switching/ring protocols.

The reliable NH30 Ethernet switch has self-control and self-monitoring capabilities. It manages lifetime information about critical operating components, such as the shelf fans and power supplies, and can be used for manual shutdown. For security and monitoring purposes, the shelf controller data is available via network interfaces and CLI.

Two AC or DC power supplies ensure reliability and redundancy. When used with one of the power supplies, an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can protect the system against power fluctuations.

All of these factors make the modular, managed 29-Gbit Ethernet switch ideal for mobile communication in harsh environments, where reliability, flexibility and cost minimization play an ever increasing role.
