Cloudberry Aero CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series

A rugged, 8 port (10/100/1000BASE) Gigabit Ethernet


The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series is a rugged, Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) 8 port (10/100/1000BASE) Gigabit Ethernet switch with a built-in high time accuracy GPS receiver (optional) as time base for Grand Master Clock operation, in accordance with the IEEE 1588 standard. The platform is optimized for aircraft and military network systems applications.

Designed to meet civil aviation and military specifications, the CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series offers advanced Layer 2 networking capabilities with 8 ports of non-blocking wire-speed 10/100/1000Mbps connectivity, an integrated management processor and a FPGA. The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series enables end-nodes to operate with a synchronization accuracy better than 20ns across a wide operating temperature range [-15 to +80C] and extreme shock/vibration conditions. The unit provides packet extraction/inspection/insertion capabilities, as well as programmable or data driven discrete outputs, which can be used to control end node devices on or off the network.

This rugged version features RJ45 connectors in an aluminum chassis and serves as an ideal solution for connecting IP-enabled embedded devices deployed in demanding environments.

The CloudberryAERO CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series implements the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to IEEE 1588 Std 2002 (PTPv1) and IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2). With its unique PTP implementation and embedded PTP version translator, the CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series as a Grand Master Clock (GMC) version allows PTP Slave Clocks of either PTPv1 or PTPv2 to co-exist in the same network.

This fully managed, Layer 2 Gigabit switch provides a powerful set of networking features, including support for IPv4 multicast traffic filtering according to static filters or IGMP snooping, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), port control (speed / mode / statistics, flow control), Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization, Link Aggregation (802.3ad), SNMPv/1/v2/v3 management, secure authentication (802.1X, ACLs, Web/CLI), redundancy (RSTP/MSTP) and port mirroring.

To enhance reliability, the unit features military temperature grade components, an isolated power supply that protects against voltage surges, spikes and transients and no moving parts.

Key Features:

Time Distribution: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series is available as a reliable and accurate (< 20 nanosecond) PTP Grand Master Clock and Transparent/Slave Clock according to IEEE 1588 Std 2002 (PTPv1) or IEEE 1588 Std 2008 (PTPv2) standards

GPS: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series with PTP Grand Master Clock capability contains a built-in high accuracy GPS receiver.

Interoperability: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series supports all relevant IEEE Ethernet standards. Interoperability with other PTP devices are ensured based on extensive testing.

Version Translation: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series with its unique embedded PTP version translator feature, allows Slave Clocks of both PTPv1 and PTPv2 to co-exist in the same network.

Management: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series offer full management based on HTTP, telnet, CLI or SNMP v1/v2/v3.

Rugged: OnTime Networks provides rugged Ethernet solutions to withstand extreme operating conditions, such as temperature, shock and vibration. As a fully rugged version, the CM-1600-LP series is designed for the harsh aircraft and military environment. The platform offers a wide operating temperature range [-40 to +85Cº] with ruggedized military approved connectors. The unit is approved according to RTCA DO 160G, and is also designed for MIL-STD 461D, -704E and -810G.

Filtering: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series offers advanced filtering capabilities. Multicast filters can be set on the switch either based on IGMP snooping or by manual configuration of static filters. Layer 4 filtering can be done based on UDP destination or source port numbers of UDP/IP packets.

IRIG-B: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 Series with Grand Master Clock capability provides GPS emulation (NMEA and PPS), IRIG-B 002 and IRIG-B 122 outputs.

Compliance: The CM-1600-LP-RJ45 series is ready and compliant to current integrated Network Enhanced Telemetry (iNET) standards.

VLAN: Port based VLAN (static) or dynamic VLAN according to IEEE802.1Q are supported.

Security: Security according to IEEE802.1x is supported.

Connectors: The CM-1600-LP Series is configured with 11 connections. Power input (J11), GPS antenna interface (J10, only on GMC) service port interface (J9) – Terrapin with A-keying and 8 x 10/100/1000BASE-TX Ethernet ports (J1-J8) with N-keying.
