Layer 3 Ethernet switches family expands

Louise Smyth

Eurotech has expanded its portfolio of HPEC systems with the DynaNET 10G-01 and the DynaNET 100G-01, two liquid-cooled Layer 3 Ethernet switches designed for high networking performance in automotive and other embedded applications.

The DynaNET 10G-01 features 52 GbE ports for a total 176Gb/s switching capacity, the ports can be stacked to further increase the port count, or can be connected to a 40Gb/s backbone. It’s for applications where a large number of devices and sensors such as LIDARs, RADARs and high definition cameras – typically found in autonomous vehicles - need to be reliably connected.

The DynaNET 100G-01 is for applications where extreme networking performance, reliability and compactness are required, such as autonomous driving, artificial vision and HPEC. It features a total throughput of 3.2Tbs, a processing capacity of 2.38Bpps and 300ns port-to-port latency, delivering significant benefits in terms of data traffic predictability at very low latency. It provides a 16x 40/56/100GbE ports backbone infrastructure that can be split up to 32x 50GbE or 64x10/25GbE to increase the port count.

Both feature Layer 3 switching, allowing great control over traffic and a more deterministic management of services and data streams. This will benefit all those applications where it is necessary to avoid data starvation and preserve the deterministic behaviour of the network.

The systems are liquid-cooled to enhance performance in embedded environments and can be easily integrable with other Eurotech HPEC systems. Field-proven quick disconnects provide a fast and safe interface to the vehicle cooling system and speed up deployment and maintenance procedures.
