RELY-XMC SWITCH ROUTER 2023-09-11T18:15:30+02:00

XMC family


Switch Router Mezzanine Card

RELY-XMC-SWITCH-ROUTER is a configurable, high-performance, conduction- or air-cooled XMC module, based on the Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ family of MPSoC components, which benefit from having an EOL of 25 years.

This device implements an up-to 17 port switch providing up-to 12x 1G/10G ports, 4x 1G ports and 1x 1G port for attachment to a second source on the carrier.

RELY-XMC-SWITCH-ROUTER device offers the possibility to introduce advanced L2 / L3 communications, high-availability redundancy (“Zero-Packet-Loss” or “Zero-Recovery-Time”), sub-microsecond synchronization and wire-speed cybersecurity features in the system (using an SBC carrier, a VPX carrier, etc.) where it is hosted, for its integration in a military network.

Additionally, it benefits from SoC-e’s technology for critical sectors, one of the most comprehensive and field-proven solution in the market.
