Network interconnect supports command and control, Internet of Things, cloud, storage replication, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.
ASHBURN, Va. – Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the PacStar 448 10-Gigabit Ethernet switch module for military, intelligence, and commercial applications.
The Ethernet switch delivers a 10x increase in networking speed to its PacStar Modular Data Center (MDC) 2.0. The PacStar 448 module, based on Cisco ESS 9300 technology, supports high-speed switching for the MDC’s servers and storage devices.
It enables PacStar MDC to perform compute and network tasks in tactical and expeditionary settings. The module features ten 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ enhanced small form-factor pluggable transceiver ports that deliver speed and density.
The enhanced network interconnect performance provided by PacStar 448 supports command and control, Internet of Things, cloud, storage replication, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. The module also is a drop-in replacement for previous Ethernet switch modules. Curtiss-Wright acquired PacStar last fall.
PacStar MDC is based on the PacStar 400-series commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) small-form-factor modules. It is a tactical and expeditionary rugged data center capable of hosting mission command, cloud storage, sensor fusion, AI, and analytics applications.
