Telco Systems Releases Ruggedized Ethernet for Military

Telco Systems announced the availability of two new Ethernet routing switches designed specifically for military use in harsh environments. The T5R-24T and T5R-24GT are MIL-STD-810F compliant and provide wire speed, non-blocking Layer 2-4 switching at Gigabit Ethernet speeds. With up to 24 Ethernet connections and four (4) Gigabit fiber uplinks in a 1.4 inch enclosure, the T5R is designed for high-density IP services in space-constrained airborne and ground communications environments. The switch can support IP connectivity for airborne and radar systems, signals intelligence, UAV data lines, and mobile communications.

The T5R-24GT-RUG provides 18 auto-sensing 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet connections and four (4) Gigabit fiber uplinks, while the T5R-24T-RUG supports 24 auto-sensing 10/100BaseT Ethernet connections, two (2) Gigabit copper uplinks and two (2) Gigabit fiber uplinks. Expansion options are available for each model to support up to 54 ports in the T5R-24GT and 66 ports in the T5R-24T.
