Embedded & Small Form Factor Ethernet Switches

Your networking system is the critical backbone of your entire platform. Creating a seamless connected network results in a better, safer in-vehicle experience warfighters can trust. And, at the core of every seamless network is the right switch for the job.

Curtiss-Wright's field-proven switches and routers provide the core capabilities for secure mobile networks onboard land, sea, and airborne platforms. Leveraging advances in enterprise and data center technology, we create our rugged solutions to deliver high-performance connectivity on converged, application-aware networks. For network security and information assurance, our modules and systems support a variety of secure network management protocols and authentication methods.

Our rugged solutions simplify deployment with advanced capabilities for easily connecting cards, sensors, and processors through switched Ethernet links. By basing our technology on IEEE, IETF, and other open standards, we enhance the reliability, security, and versatility of networking systems with mature software and support resources.

We're proud to be a trusted, leading global manufacturer of rugged Ethernet switch modules and systems. We rigorously test our solutions to ensure they deliver reliable performance in the most demanding environmental conditions and extended temperatures. Our expertise and experience help system integrators securely and affordably deploy digital network architectures for situational awareness and network-centric operations.

Small Form Factor Ethernet Switches

Optimized for demanding SWaP constraints, our small form factor Ethernet switch boxes pack exceptional functionality into an impressively minimal physical footprint. Take advantage of extra energy efficiency from switches that offer power over Ethernet (PoE). Or get the best of both copper cabling and fiber optics with hybrid switches offering of both interfaces.

These robust IP networking solutions support advanced in-vehicle and airborne LAN switching / WAN routing requirements. Curtiss-Wright offers a broad array of rugged, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) Ethernet switches to meet your application requirements:

  • Plug-and-play unmanaged Layer 2 switches
