XChange3013 and XChange3018 are secure, non-blocking, high-performance, Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking solutions from X-ES that provide versatile management and routing options.
Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) introduces the XChange3013 and XChange3018 3U VPX switches and routers. These are secure, non-blocking, high-performance, Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking solutions from X-ES that provide versatile management and routing options, ranging from managed or unmanaged Layer 2 switching to fully featured IP routers with Cisco IOS and Cisco Mobile Ready Net technology. The XChange3018 is the first VPX Ethernet switch to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet using the 10GBASE-T protocol, eliminating the need for 10 Gigabit optical transceivers, which are large, expensive, and not ideal for use in extremely low temperatures or rugged environments.
The XChange3013 and XChange3018 both deliver full wire speed across all of their ports and jumbo packets up to 13 KB. They also support IPv6, Quality of Service (QoS), Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), and a comprehensive set of IETF RFCs and IEEE protocols. The XChange3013 and XChange3018 include an XMC site that is compatible with the XPedite5205, which implements Cisco IOS IP Routing capabilities and provides a complete Embedded Services Router (ESR) solution.Read the full press release.
