The VadaTech VPX004 is the most feature-rich VPX Switch with healthmanagement in the market. Its management software is based on VadaTech’srobust Carrier Manager and Shelf Manager which have been deployed foryears with proven results. The MCMC manages the Power Modules, CoolingUnits, and up to 12 payload modules within the chassis. It also manages thePCIe Gen3 switch and the standard GbE with 10GbE uplink Base Channelswitch. The Ethernet switch is managed with an enterprise grade Layer 2 or 3switching/routing stack which supports Synchronous Ethernet.
The VPX004 runs Linux on its centralized quad-core CPU and is fullyredundant when used in conjunction with a second instance of the module. Thefirmware is HPM.2 compliant which allows for easy upgrades. It providesoptional Master JTAG services to the payload modules via the JSM. TheVPX004 has advanced clocking features including grand master clock andhigh-quality clock distribution/synthesis.
