Industry type:Electronics and communication
Product model number:EKI-9778
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

EKI-9778 is the 10G Industrial Ethernet Switch, which comply with Broadcom Fastpath Layer 2 Features. Based on Broadcom switch design, EKI-9778 represent a high-end Ethernet switch which can provide total 64GB Ethernet traffic switch capability. There are four SFP+ on the front panel; each one can run at 10G. Various options of RTM design can fulfill different design requirement, such like Ethernet I/O, TCAM for DPI, storage, etc.
The IEEE1588v2 is another important feature of EKI-9778. The EKI-9778 adopts Broadcom BCM56149 as switch controller. Total bandwidth is 64G. Freescale QorIQ P1010 is Local Management Processor (LMP). LMP is a host that controls switches through PCIe and UART interface. The EKI-9778 1000BaseFX/TX combo switch design makes network planning easy, and allows greater flexibility for users install up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet combo ports plus 8 Gigabit 1000BaseFX and 4 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports, making EKI-9778 suitable for mid-scale industrial networks. It integrates Layer 2 switching software, which is optimized for the scale and performance, delivering wire speed across all ports up to 128Gbps for layer 2 traffic forwarding. In addition, the fan-less convection design provides a higher degree of reliability, which operating under -10 ~ 60° C operating temperature, and two build-in 110~220 VAC inputs redundant power module ensure vital network capabilities with minimum downtime.
