“LAYER 3” project
The aim of the Layer 3 project is the prototype development of an electronic device called "Layer 3 Switch for train ETHERNET network". The prototype is equipped with new generation processors ("Packet Processors") capable of speeding up by three orders of magnitude (compared to current capacity) the process of filtering, analysis and routing of data packets that are transferred over an ETHERNET network installed on board the train.
