The GS12 Ethernet switch from GE Intelligent Platforms has been designed to provide high performance in a compact package with robust construction to meet the functional demands of military users while being able to reliably perform in highly demanding environments
Military Grade Rugged Secure Ethernet Switch
GE Intelligent Platforms has announced the GS12 rugged, Ethernet switch, combining functionality, performance and small size for deployment in the widest possible range of demanding environments. By taking advantage of innovative technologies, the GS12 improves the speed, accuracy and security with which information is distributed, enabling it to make a significant contribution to improving mission effectiveness and delivering combat troops an important competitive advantage.

The GS12 switch is a standalone, fully managed Layer 2/3 Gigabit unit combining a high port density of 12 Gigabit Ethernet ports with support for IPv6 switching and routing in a small, lightweight enclosure. Its combination of features allows the GS12 to be deployed in a wide array of applications in ground vehicles that need the ability to interconnect a large number of nodes. Such an interconnection requires a switch with comprehensive management and configuration features: the GS12 rises to the challenge of fitting the required high performance functionality into a small space.

“It is increasingly the case that military customers have all the computing power they need,” said Peter Cavill, General Manager, Military & Aerospace at GE Intelligent Platforms. “The GS12 meets their requirement to deliver and deploy that computing power in the confined surroundings of tanks, submarines, helicopters, unmanned vehicles and the like.”

The GS12 supports the latest generation of IPv6 switching and routing, allowing it to meet the most challenging requirements for next generation DoD networks. IPv6 provides improved network security and reliability, while support for more network addresses allows for a greater number of interconnected devices. Additional management and configuration features include quality of service (QoS) prioritization, VLANs, LAG, SNMP, RSTP, VRRP, IGMP and traffic policing providing customers the flexbility to meet their unique networking requirements.

Measuring just 2.5 x 6.5 and 9.25 inches (including connectors), weighing only four pounds and capable of withstanding temperatures between -40 and +75 degrees C, the GS12 Ethernet switch is ideal for applications that require networking capability in harsh conditions such as those found in military and aerospace ground-, airborne- and naval environments. Connections to the conduction-cooled GS12 are made via the rugged front panel, which meets MIL-STD-810F requirements for humidity, salt spray and dust. It complements the 24-port GS24 rugged, fully managed Gigabit Ethernet switch.
