The MILTECH 904 is a MIL-STD, fully managed military grade Ethernet switch with advanced Layer 3 static routing capabilities. This four triple-speed (10/100/1000Mbps) port switch leads the industry in functionality, size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C). It saves valuable real estate on mobile platforms such as:
- Unmanned and compact aerial platforms
- Mobile ground vehicles and UGVs
- Autonomous surface and underwater craft
The MILTECH 904 can be remotely managed to deliver Layer 2 switching to optimize on-vehicle communications and prioritize critical information traffic between network devices such as communication and navigation systems, IP-based 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 include switching protocols, on-device IPv4 and IPv6 static routing between VLANs, traffic prioritization (QoS), and bandwidth aggregation. Security functions include accounting, authentication and authorization (AAA) via TACACS and/or RADIUS servers. Authorization Levels allow multiple users to have up to 15 different levels of access to switch management to greatly enhance the security of any network. In addition the MILTECH 904 supports Dark Mode operation.
The MILTECH 904 uses industry-standard 24VDC power and is designed for MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-461E, MIL-STD-1275B & MIL-STD-704A airborne, ground mobile environmental and EMI/RFI compliance with high reliability.
