Innovasic, a provider of extended life semiconductor solutions for customers who have products with long life-cycles, has recently introduced an industrial Ethernet VoIP switch for high performance networks.
The new fido2100 is an IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3 standard compliant, Layer 2 VoIP switch. It is compatible with the IEEE 802.1D standard and uses cut through forwarding to swiftly pass traffic from one port to the other port to minimize packet delay.
The VoIP switch also supports rings, star, line, and tree topologies as well as supports IEEE 1588 v2 Precision Time Protocol and both ordinary and transparent clocks.
“The fido2100 Industrial Ethernet switch and supporting software allows developers to quickly and cost-effectively add beacon-based DLR and IEEE 1588 to their products,” said Jordon Woods, Innovasic’s chief technology officer, in a statement.
DLR beacon rates down to 100 µs support fault recovery and ring restore times of less than 10 ms. A host processor connects to one of the three switch ports via MII for Ethernet communication and to a processor bus for configuration and status. Further, the A C library support package simplifies integration of the switch to any type of processor.
Customers utilizing Innovasic’s newest solutions are able to quickly integrate real-time industrial Ethernet capabilities into their products at the highest performance and the lowest cost. By extending the life of its customers’ products, the VoIP switch provider has established itself as a trusted partner and an approved supplier to electronic system manufacturers worldwide.
In related news, TMCnet recently reported that ADTRAN (News - Alert) debuted ActivReach, an innovative Ethernet technology that has the ability to support various types of wiring and can successfully enhance service reach nearly three times the range when compared to traditional Ethernet offerings. Powering voice, data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) via a single platform, ActiveReach wouldn’t be possible without a little help from its friend the NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet switch, which drives flexibility and scalability in long distance networks.
