GE Intelligent Platforms today announced a new 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, designed to meet challenging applications in telecommunications, industrial and military systems. According to the company's news release, the CP921RC-30x is included in the form of Failover Groups (FOG), a feature that is part of GE’s OpenWare switch management environment.


"The NETernity CP921RC-30x 6U CompactPCI 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch. Designed for challenging applications in telecommunications, industrial and military systems, it is a fully managed Layer 2/3+ switch with support for 'future-proof' IPv6 switching and routing.

"Important new functionality is included in the form of Failover Groups (FOG), a feature that is part of GE’s OpenWare switch management environment. Responding to the need for very high availability networks, FOG is designed to support redundancy at different levels – redundant links across backplanes from nodes to switches, redundant switches, and redundant links to external networks. This provides fast, application-independent, failover capabilities, suitable for a wide range of network configurations, from the simple to the very complex. This unique combination of innovative hardware and software technologies delivers leading edge functionality, flexibility and availability."
