Core Systems Introduces the RCAT-4948E Ruggedized Cisco Ethernet Switch

Core Systems Incorporated, a leading global provider of rugged computer solutions, announced a ruggedized version of Cisco switches and routers. The RCAT-4948E is a hardened 2U 4948E Ethernet Switch qualified to meet MIL-STD-810, MIL-S-901D, MIL-STD-167, and MIL-STD-461. This rugged COTS RCAT-4948E ethernet switch extends to military applications with enhancements that support the deployment of data and multimedia services that require thermal, shock, vibration, altitude, and humidity conditions not offered by the standard commercial Cisco version. Core Systems also adds custom connections, external cable sets, and custom AC or DC power requirements.

Designed for demanding Military Aircrafts, Shelter Environments, and Shipboard Installations, the RCAT-4948E MIL-SPEC Cisco ethernet switch comes equipped with a MIL-38999 connector for 48 GB Ethernet downlinks, three 10 GB Ethernet uplinks (2 copper, 1 fiber), and a 1 GB fiber uplink.

”There is one, maybe two companies who manufacture military versions of the Cisco Switches for the Military market. We are very excited about this partnership with Cisco and look forward to mutual success in this arena.”

– Chris Schaffner, President of Core Systems
