VDS Rail's 28 ports Consist Switch is a 10-Gigabit/Gigabit/Fast Ethernet managed switch designed for network applications in Rolling-Stock environments.
Besides providing wire-speed layer 2 forwarding capabilities, this switch also supports Layer 3 services, allowing IPv4 unicast and multicast routing among different VLANs. Layer 3 extensions include inter-VLAN routing with packet filtering together with NAT. OSPF and RIP dynamic protocols are also supported.
This Consist Switch supports up to five (5) 10GBase‑T Ethernet ports, eleven (11) 1000BASE-T Ethernet ports (4 with PoE+ capability), and twelve (12) 10/100BASE-T ports with optional PoE+ capability. Besides the standard features provided by this class of devices, this Consist Switch provides advanced software facilities for on-board network discovery and configuration.
This EN 50155-compliant switch is equipped with up to 2 bypasses, making the device completely transparent to the network in case of a power outage or failure.
