Driven by rapid advancement and lower costs, Ethernet is becoming the standard for IP-based components in a wide range of military and commercial applications. Modern platforms contain dozens of network devices that must be interconnected. The MILTECH1000 is an ideal solution for mobile Ethernet-equipped platforms utilizing both copper and fiber connections such as:
- Ship board fiber deployments
- Airborne systems
- Ground mobile applications
- Long range video camera connectivity
- Infantry base camp deployments
With the MILTECH1000, transparent, line-speed media conversion is provided along with the flexibility of power over Ethernet (PoE). The 1000 series extends the distance of LAN networks using fiber connectivity that can stretch up 120 km. The MILTECH1000 PoE capabilities enable the device to function as PD (powered device) or PSE (power source equipment), saving valuable and expensive resources at the field. MILTECH1000 can be defined as a unidirectional security gateway allowing data to travel only in one direction used in guaranteeing information security and enables Red/Black network segregation.
The 1000 offers 2 triple-speed (10/100/1000Mbps) copper ports and two fiber port at 100Mbps or 1Gbps. It can be remotely managed to optimize communications and prioritize critical information traffic. Advanced network features include auto-negotiation, auto MDI-II, MDI-X, FDX, HDX, flow control, link pass-through, fiber fault alert and loopback that reduce onsite maintenance and troubleshooting time. Orderable options include the use of the 100 as a powered device (PD) or power source equipment (PSE), and the number and types of Ethernet and fiber connections. The 1000 also includes a unidirectional security gateway, allowing data to travel only in one direction – providing Red/Black network segregation.
The MILTECH1000 mechanical packaging enhancements include configurable D38999, TFOCA-II, and expanded beam connectors, is designedfor MIL-STD-810F airborne andground environmental compliance and high reliability. Leveraging bestin-class switching technology from Techaya, the MILTECH1000 serves as a robust commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for rugged LAN connectivity.
The MILTECH 1000 is very versatile in comes in many different flavors. The below chart will allow you to select the one that best suites your needs.
