The Ethernet Switch solution implements a highly programmable and flexible platform with an embedded RISC processor and support for the emerging IEEE1588 version 2 timing control protocol. The Switch provides an ideal highly integrated platform to develop a wide range of applications (Industrial, AVB) to support emerging standards (AVB, IEEE1588).
The Switch implements, per port, up to four prioritized queues, which provide Quality of Service (QOS) to critical class of services. The Switch is programmable to classify traffic from the 4-Bit VLAN priority field on the VLAN info field, 6-Bit DiffServ Layer 3 Code Point (Ipv4) or the 8-Bit Class of Service (Ipv6) and each physical port can also be weighted.
To meet the stringent latency requirements of Industrial and AVB (Audio, Video Broadcast) application and to better support triple play application, the Switch implements a low latency cut-through operation option that provides fast, and predictable, Frame forwarding.
Advanced domain and storm protection options provide efficient user traffic management and reduce superfluous traffic.
