Developers of wireless, IP telephony, broadband access, public safety, defense and high availability systems are continually seeking increased system bandwidth, performance and reliability. The combination of the IPnexus CPC5400 and PICMG® 2.16 deliver dramatic improvements in these areas. Users can realize performance of up to 16 times that of current PCI architectures. The PICMG 2.16 standard offers OEM system developers and integrators the option of sending all Ethernet signals through an industry standard midplane or to the rear transition module for distribution to external devices.
Coupled with comprehensive switching and high availability features, the CPC5400 raises embedded design performance to a new level. The CPC5400 is the latest addition to the most complete and capable line of embedded Ethernet switching products in the industry.
The CPC5400 supports a long list of features including 802.3AD Link Aggregation, 802.1q VLANs, and 802.1p QoS/CoS that ensures priority traffic receives the handling it requires. The switch can be deployed in a fully redundant, non-blocking network that prevents single points of failure from halting network traffic.

The CPC5400 has been specifically designed to make embedded system integration tasks easier, so your projects can get to market sooner. It comes with a potent scripting language, called LUA, that can be used to easily change switch configuration/behavior, attached client setups, fail-over rules, etc., based on SNMP traps, network events or system configuration/topology changes.
The CPC5400 maximizes network performance and flexibility. It can be used as a stand-alone switching solution, coupled to other switches for greater port capacity, or used in a fully redundant, fault tolerant fashion. When attached to two CPC5400s, devices with dual Ethernet ports can be connected to one or both switches. If a link, PHY or switching node fails, data can be re-routed to an alternate path, maintaining network connections.
Designed with the utmost regard for reliability, the CPC5400 maximizes network uptime by continuously checking its health. If a problem is detected, the switch will de-assert all links, signaling the attached devices to use another route. The replacement unit can obtain all of its operational and configuration information from the other CPC5400 or an external manager, making change-out of failed modules a simple matter of sliding one blade out and replacing it with a new one. The new unit “clones” its setup from the configuration stored on the survivor. The CPC5400 has no active components on its rear panel I/O cards, ensuring failed units can easily be replaced without disturbing cables or other blades in the chassis.
The CPC5400 is ideal for demanding network applications. Each blade "learns" and caches up to 8k MAC addresses in its filtering database and sustains full wire speed data rates on all ports with its 16 Gbps switching fabric, eliminating congestion in even the busiest environments.
The CPC5400 protects investments for the long term with easy FTP/TFTP updates to platform flash memory. System software is available through downloads from our Web site (www.pt.com), greatly simplifying or eliminating the need for dedicated on-site network administration.
The CPC5400 continues Performance Technologies’ long tradition of offering high-availability, fault tolerant solutions for the telecom and data communications industries.
