Rugged Ethernet Switches & Routers

Curtiss-Wright rugged switches and routers enable mobile networks on-board vehicle and aircraft platforms to securely and affordably deploy digital network architectures for situational awareness and network centric operations. These rugged subsystems and card solutions give systems integrators capabilities for interconnecting cards, sensors and processors through switched Ethernet links. Optimized for the Size, Weight & Power (SWaP) constraints of civil and military platforms, these robust IP networking solutions support advanced in-vehicle and airborne LAN switching / WAN routing requirements. New platforms and technology refresh efforts routinely leverage these solutions to facilitate the integration of C4ISR systems, eliminate communication stovepipes, and delivers new information sharing capabilities. From simple, plug-and play unmanaged Layer 2 switches to high-bandwidth managed Layer 3 Gigabit/10 Gigabit solutions and even ruggedized Cisco IOS technology-based options, Curtiss-Wright’s has a broad array of rugged COTS IP networking solutions to meet your application requirements.
