The Themis NanoSWITCH™ is 10 port or 16 port SWaP-optimized rugged multi-layer GigE switch with an embedded x86 PC.

Level 2/3 Functionality

The NanoSWITCH brings enterprise level layer 2/3 switching into harsh environments found in military vehicles and offshore oil platforms. Its multi-layer performance and cost-competitive pricing makes it an attractive choice for a multitude of field applications including:

  • Vehicle network switching
  • Distributed architecture vehicle controller
  • VICTORY compliant switch, router, timing, and control
  • WAN – LAN interconnectivity and firewall
  • Shared processing and peripheral communications

VICTORY Compliant

NanoSWITCH is available in a VICTORY (Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability) software configuration, which eliminates redundancy and reduces SWAP in Army ground vehicles. It also meets multiple military standards including: MIL-STD-1275E, MIL-STD-704F, MIL-STD-461F, and MIL-STD-810G.

Precision Control

The NanoSWITCH’s 10x or 16x external GigE ports operate at rates of 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps. It supports sophisticated IPv4 and IPv6 routing such as tunneling, IP Multicast, VLANs, IETF, IEEE, and DSL Forum standards. A full management suite and Command Line Interface (CLI) is included to simplify switch control and routing operations.

The IGMP snooping feature enables the network to operate at peak efficiency by limiting the IP multicast traffic to the ports that request it, while 802.1Q VLAN support quickly segregates network traffic. VLANs provide an additional layer of security by separating sensitive data from other network workgroups.

Workload Efficiency

The NanoSWITCH includes numerous Quality of Service (QoS) features to ensure traffic is prioritized to deliver superior performance for real-time applications. These features include system management, voice, video, and bandwidth-intensive file uploads and downloads. Additional capabilities, such as IEEE 802.1p priority tagging, DSCP, and eight hardware traffic class queues maintain quality for real-time applications.
