WILDSTAR 100GbE 6U OpenVPX Switch

The WP6E10 WILDSTAR 100GbE Switch from Annapolis Micro Systems is a rugged 6U OpenVPX board that provides switching between backplane slots of multiple channels of 100Gb Ethernet.

This next-generation 6U VPX Switch supports 1/10/25/40/100 GbE, with up to 6.4 Tb/s of switching capability. It features 7 optional 40/100GbE optical interfaces to VITA 66 and 4 optional 40/100GbE optical interfaces to the front panel.

The rugged WP6E10 is available in industrial temperature grades, via air, conduction or liquid cooling. It is VITA 65-compliant, and aligns with the SOSA™ Technical Standard.
