GE Intelligent Platforms today announced the NETernity™ GBX460 rugged 6U OpenVPX data plane switch module, the first 10 Gigabit Ethernet solution of its kind to support high throughput interprocessor communication (IPC) between 10GigE-enabled processing nodes for deployed defense and aerospace applications. With 20 (optionally 24) 10GigE data plane ports and 16 GigE control plane ports, the GBX460 supports non-blocking, low latency data transfers across a multiprocessing cluster at up to full wire speed, enabling new levels of performance for the most demanding ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) applications. It is designed to provide a high speed interface for sensor I/O, IPC and data distribution to the back end processing clusters typically found in C4I (command, control, communications, computers and intelligence) infrastructures.

The GBX460 is an unmanaged Layer 2 switch that can support multiple OpenVPX slots/module profiles for maximum flexibility and throughput. ”An unmanaged switch like the GBX460 is ideal for customer applications requiring the switch to be fully functional for network-connected devices as soon as possible after power-on; this is a capability required by a number of military programs,” said Rob McKeel, President, Military & Aerospace at GE Intelligent Platforms.

A fully managed Layer 2/3 version of the GBX460 will be announced early in 2011.

The GBX460 meets the requirement to support a large number of 10GigE ports to maximize data throughput capabilities, and can optionally support up to four front panel 10GigE fibre ports to enable connectivity to external networks. It is OpenVPX compatible, allowing it to easily integrate with other OpenVPX compatible products. The GBX460 is available in conduction cooled variants to allow deployment in harsh environments.

“The GBX460 is a key COTS building block that provides new levels of performance and scalability to system integrators,” continued McKeel. “It allows them to process data from multiple sources within shorter time frames in order to expand mission capability across a range of ISR and C4I platforms. Customers needing support for high end graphics and video applications - such as situational awareness, radar and sensor processing - will also derive considerable benefit from the GBX460.”

The standard build of the GBX460 provides 20 x 10GigE data plane fat pipes and 16 x 1 GigE control plane ultra-thin pipes to support multi-board 6U VITA65 (OpenVPX) system configurations. Multi-board systems can be configured using the GBX460 together with GE processor boards such as the Intel® Core™ i7-based SBC622 single board computer and IPN250 and NPN240 NVIDIA™ CUDA™-enabled GPGPU platforms.

As with all GE embedded computing solutions, the GBX460 benefits from a range of long term support programs designed to maximize customer return on investment.
