Rugged Cisco Nexus 3548 Switch
The rugged RCAT-3548 is a hardened 1U 3548 Cisco Ethernet Switch machined out of solid aircraft aluminum sheets to lighten the chassis for payload sensitive requirements. It 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. Custom connections, external cable sets, and custom AC or DC power requirements are available.
The rugged 3548 chassis is milled from solid blocks of aircraft aluminum to provide unmatched structural rigidity. The aluminum is 6061T-651 strain hardened structural aircraft aluminum that is 0.25″ to 0.50″ thick.
All the components on the Cisco board are potted for vibration resistance. The boards are conformal coated for humidity and tin whiskering.
Core Systems designs the Rugged 3548 switch to meet or exceed the military specifications listed to the right.
