Rugged Ethernet Gateway – REG
The REG is a small to medium form factor rugged Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch system optimized for demanding size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints of embedded space computer network systems applications.
To enhance reliably and availability, the unit can feature a dual-lane architecture for single failure tolerance with a fully customized mechanical packaging and a fully customized redundancy handling module. The unit can interface Ethernet via RJ45 type connectors or high performance circular connectors. Integrated filtering is designed to meet power input voltage, spikes, surges, transients and EMI/EMC requirements of typical space deployments.
The REG enables reliable Local Area Network (LAN) switching across extended operating temperature ranges (-23°C to +63°C), shock/vibration and radiation conditions. The REG features 20 triple-speed (10/100/1000 Mbps) ports and combines layer-2 managed network switch functions with remote management capabilities for optimizing communications, prioritizing critical information and layer 3 routing.
The REG is an elegant solution for connecting a large number of IP-enabled (embedded) devices, including cameras, sensors, payload, command-and-control equipment and other avionics deployed in space transportation system platforms and orbital infrastructures at the network edge.
